Sharing your point of view with the World


Guardian Visual Changes

So I won’t go into this too far I’ll just give you the visual comparison of the quickslot bars before and after Rise of Isengard proposed changes. These pictures are both the same character the first from the live servers and the second from Bullroarer.




As you can see there are not many changes visually but there are a few skills that will change with stances. Like I said not too in-depth I just want to give you a general idea of what you’ll be seeing when ROI goes live. Thanks for reading and I’ll see you in Middle-earth ~ Bor

To Guardians

Glorinbor MithrilshieldRecently I have received emails from Stratus of Crickhollow and Senseye of Evernight requesting some more information for Guardians I have chosen to answer them here.  First there is a guide on the lorebook that is very involved  you can find it here.  Second as to virtues there are two very good resources the virtue finder at and the virtues tab at  I have only used the one at burgzerg myself but try them out and see what you think.


Guardians lets finish this 61-65 for now.

A doughty fighter and protector of the weak, a skilled Guardian can face even the toughest foes and survive. The Guardian is one of the few classes willing and able to try to draw more blows onto themselves, so they can retaliate with devastating maneuvers in response. and with this in mind let us move on into Mirkwood or soon into Enedwaith. You may want to wait to level 62 to head into Enedwaith but that is entirely up to you.


Guardians……………………It is time to become Legendary

This week we are going to cover the steps required to finish your level fifty class quests. nThe first thing you will notice when you go to your class trainer at level 45 they will have a quest for you The Bravest Deed is Selfless.


Guardian’s leveling guide 41-50

This week we will point you in the right direction to get you going for your level 50 class quest. As you will notice your questing will most likely be getting more and more spread out. your area Choices will be Angmar and The Misty Mountains. Once you get into the level 45 range you will be able to converge on Eregion and or Forochel. also at level 45 you will want to make your way to the Hollin Gate in the far east of Eregion to start Volume 2 of your epic quests that will grant you the ability to use Legendary Items but that is another post.


Episode 3 : Guardian’s Challenge

Episode 3 Guardian’s Challenge this episode I have a little chat with someone you may know about his guardian and a few other things. I would like to thank Merric from A Casual Stroll to Mordor for coming on the show and I would also like to thank Devon for the comment he left on the site. If you do leave a review on Itunes or Zune let me know also let me know what country so I can check the right version 🙂

Guardian leveling guide 31-40

This week we will cover a few ideas on which area to head into for your leveling purposes.  If you went the Lone-lands route you should be about ready to head to Oatbarton and Evendim or to Esteldin and the eastern North-downs. If you chose to go through the North-downs then you will have naturally progressed to the eastside of the North-downs. At level 38 you will find that quests are either few and far between or require a group to complete. I would suggest doing Skirmishes as needed for the XP help in this situation. Unfortunately we have just hit the proverbial wall as it comes to leveling you will get there but it is going to seem like work. Don’t be afraid to use the different chat channel to ask for suggestions.


Guardian leveling guide 16-30

Welcome back! As you may have noticed, this series is not super in-depth. That is on purpose. My goal is to give a quick overview of the skills and areas for the level ranges.  After that is done, I will be going into a much more turn-by-turn type of guide. I will go into class quest guides, deeding, virtues, traits, and all other manner of things. First things first, I just want to get you familiar with the bulk of the game and your class, and then we will delve into the nitty gritty, so to speak. Until then, here is the next installment of Bor’s Guide to Guardians.


Guardian leveling guide 1-15

Skill Level: Moderate

The Guardians are protectors of the weak and defenders of those in need. They are capable of withstanding mighty blows and retaliating in kind. True Guardians stand to the forefront of battle, shielding their allies from enemy assaults.

Role: Tank

The Guardian’s ability to wear heavy armour and defensive skills enable the Guardian to face creatures that would make other heroes’ morale fail. Guardians also have the ability to draw foes’ attention away from their allies and to themselves. (more…)
