Blaugust Day 19 - First time chasing Roving Threats in Lotro

Tonight I joined a raid to tackle some of the newer content in Lotro, Roving Threats. These elite level beasts are all over Middle Earth and require a sizable group to take down so running in a raid of 12 is ideal.

Having barely run in this size group before (my raiding experience runs to the ten minute Filkul raid in Moria) I had a great time and got some lovely barter tokens, Gift-Giver's Brands, toward a shiny new weapon.

As time was limited, I only joined the raid for two zones, the frozen wastes of Forochel and the barren plains and hills of Angmar. In around an hour we took down a total of ten of these terrors. As these are aimed at level 100 characters, I was limited to using Pinestro the Warden, so I can't wait to get my Captain to level Cap to join the fun! Of course, that means I might have to amend my Gamer to do list!

Sadly because of how quickly it all happened, I didn't get decent screen shots of everything we killed but here are a few of them.

Gronkerna the Mammoth

Ukko Surma the Ice Giant

Ulkharn the Rogmul

Ashthrok the Fire Troll

Vélnas the Nameless

Amardam the Caerog
