IntPiPoMo – LOTRO

I tried to find just one, but LOTRO has the best landscapes of any MMO ever. Period. No, I didn’t play them all, but I’m still sure. These screenshots are 5 years old and date from my second foray into the game (I was in Beta/Launch for a while) — and even back then, with a scabbier graphics card and a much scabbier computer, the place is breathtaking, even in the low-level areas that I didn’t ever leave (I made it to… 35? maybe).

So here are half a dozen pix. It would have been 12-20 but I figured that was probably too much. Check out the LOTRO post tag for wayback-machine posts. I did enjoy the Ironman LOTRO I played for a while (= no quests! only mob grinding! arrrrrr!).

  1. Happy to see you doing IntPiPoMo! They did create a stunning Middle Earth. Ah, and that music….
    I’m going to post some multiparters too, I even installed Mass Effect 3 hoping to get some intriguing new vistas. I took a bunch, so I thought, but my screenshot folder was empty.

    1. They do. I think they hit it out of the park with the clouds and the quality of the light. Tempted to download it again just to see how it would look now on a better rig on higher settings…

  2. Aww LOTRO, I will miss it forever. 🙂
    I loved Evendim so much, and the Old Forest and the Shire. I wanna slap myself that I stopped at Moria and never got to Rohan but levelling became such a drag at that point.
