Now that West Rohan is upon us, I’m gonna throw a question out into the tumblr-void. What crazy, 100%-death-guaranteed things have you done in Middle Earth (on purpose)? Here are some of mine:
-Jumped down the Falls of Rauros because I didn’t realize I could get the exploration deed from Amon Hen.
I just wanted to follow Boromir home OK?
-Rode to Galtrev by myself at level 26 on a RK with level 16 armor on.
-Rode to the gates of Isengard by myself at level 42 on a warden
-Ran/rode from the Hollin Gate to Stangard by myself at level 45 on a minstrel
-Jumped off the Beacon of Eaworth.
-Went rock climbing in rebuilt Hytbold and killed myself by getting stuck between some rocks. \m/
-Ran into the Golden Wood to see if the Galadhrim really would kill you (they would, back in the pre-Rohan days.)
-Swam into the Watcher’s pool @ the Hollin Gate to see if the Watcher would come out and kill me.
-Pulled the whole tent of baddies in Dol Dinen for the lulz. (I lived through this one, but I was an end-game warden before HOTs got nerfed). There were so many mobs that I couldn’t see myself.
and the old classic, of course,
-Jumped down the well at the Chamber of the Crossroads to get to the Water-Works quickly…and for the deed.
I’m not including my dozens of deaths in pre-Revamp Moria, because most of those were not intentional. I just fell off things because I’d left autorun on or something stupid like that.
What’s the most insane, death-inviting stunt you’ve pulled in LOTRO?
