This Compendium of Emotes on the Lorebook ought to come in handy for Ales & Tales and other RP purposes!
Reminds me of when I first discovered the list of emotes in the chat line menu. Linett, who must’ve been at or nearly at the level cap of 50 at that time, went and found a quiet spot on one of the islands in Nen Harn to practice them all and see what they did. That was back before there were bounty quests in Nen Harn to bring some traffic over there to kill the turtles, so it was truly a nice, quiet island. Her lynx pet, Maenad, got targeted with a lot of emotes that day just so I could see the difference between the text shown when you emote with someone targeted and when you don’t have a target selected.
So, anyone have any good stories of when you discovered the emote functions in LOTRO?

I’m very lazy sometimes about leveling Linett. Though she’s my main character, she’s been ambling along through level 64 for quite a while now, while I’ve been rotating through the alts and otherwise amusing myself by putting off her final “ding”. Maybe it’s Peter Pan syndrome and I just don’t want her to grow up? Anyway, Volume 3 Book 1 threw so many Orcs and Angmarim and such in her path (not forgetting the huge chunks of XP for quest completion after recruiting each Ranger…) that she finally made it to 65 tonight, just as she finished slaying the last two Angmarim between her and Halbarad in Tham Umdur.
See the quest rings? Halbarad’s literally right around the corner waiting for her to turn the quest in. Neat timing, if you ask me, that she managed to level with the last two mobs in the cave!

Something’s slow tonight, whether it’s the servers or my own Internet connection, so as Linett made her way through the tunnels of Laenan for the first task of Volume 3, dispatching the Orc raiders there went kind of haltingly with long pauses sometimes in between attacks. Frustrating – until I realized that Linett and her foes were poised there – I mean – POSED there, just waiting for the photographer to get the shots she wanted. I couldn’t continue the fight while waiting for the lag to pass, but there was a silver lining to the time spent waiting. Time enough to rotate the camera view around to see something other than Linett’s new cloak, and get in position to fire off one of her flashier skills just in time to get a screenshot of it. Here are some results… Continue reading ‘Silver Lining Screenshots’
