Critical Miss: The Lord of the Zings

This is the Critical Miss that I've laughed the hardest at.

Putting it that way, LOTRO is pure awesome.

I may have to get back to leveling my minstrel. <^<

I always loved the Minstrel and was endlessly amused by the fact that I could wage a personal war against the dark armies of Sauron using nothing more than the power of rock or a supernatural ability to deliver a devastating litany of curses.

Hehe... I type like she does.

I sincerely hope that some day I will have the opportunity to say, "Now you're on fire, dumbass!"

Sturmdolch:
Then I played LOTRO for the RP. It was fun while there was no drama. But of course there had to be. So I will never go back to that game.

Isn't drama the whole point of RP?

An amazing comic for an amazing game. Playing this for nearly four years now I still can't think of any other game to spend my rare time on.
And there were some guys here who wondered that Turbine won the March Mayhem two times a row.

PunkRex:
I assume the last part will be "Return of the Zing", cannot for the One Ring think of one for The Two Towers.

Maybe it will be The Two Zing...ers?

I like how you draw the Orcs more like the WoW ones.

Either way, I'm not into MMO's, the "social ascept" is nice, I suppose, but most of the time it's rather crappy grind.

Insulting your enemy causes them to burst into flames?
must get :D

Eponet:

Isn't drama the whole point of RP?

Oh, in character drama is great. But the way one person acted in character annoyed another out of character. The person who was annoyed happened to be the leader of our Kinship (guild) and promptly removed the other person from the kin. She tried to damage the other's reputation for no reason.

It's more complicated, but it's still just as stupid as it sounds. Which is why I quit.

My shaman certainly can't do anything like that, because even WoW isn't that stupid.

wow, thanks alot, now I have to get this game!

Na man, thats a KFC meal deal.

I enjoy LOTRO, a lot, I've just started my RK and fiery ridicule is an awesome skill. Not only do they get hit but they stay burning, often just for long enough to die right in looting range. I also tend to find the grind isn't so bad, if you need 14 items it's likely you'll only need to kill 18 to get them. The grind comes from deeds, by which you gain traits and points to spend on new classes, areas, expansions, 120 bears needed just to get the bear killing title and 5 points, followed by 240 to get the trait and a further 10. I'm not overly fussed at later deeds.

My Tauren Shaman can summon a giant fire elemental and summon lightning from the sky to force back his enemies...

OT: LOTRO looks super cool actually, too bad I don't have a computer that can play it :'(

That kicks ass!

Is...is this real? Someone please tell me this is a joke, so I don't have to spend the next thousand years ankle-deep in LOTR lore trying to understand the game I'm spending my every waking moment playing.

Unbelievable strong urge... must see how this skill works... omg, it's just to horrible and funny at the same time...
First time since about a year that i reconsider playing a MMORPG and just because of your awesome comic!
Could be a new definition for "flamewar"...

"YOU'RE THE STAR OF THE MASQUERADE!" --VtM reference O.o!?

Yes! LOTRO is a terrific game. I never enjoyed WoW or EQ, but LOTRO is a blast.

And in response to MaxFan: not only do bards (Minstrels) not suck in LOTRO, they are EXTREMELY important as members of any fellowship (party). Playing as a Mistrel, you would regularly be approached by other people begging you to join up with their group for a quest.

Like White Mages in FF and Tanks in WoW. Honestly no one wants to be a Warrior, A WARRIOR!!! I love taking punchs and laugthing at just how perfectic they are. Still even WoW could be improved with a Bard class, Lalalalaaaa!

Not to mention that in LOTRO you can run scripts which play actual songs perfectly on ingame instruments. Get enough bards in a group and theres a feature to sync them to make an actual band! Theres whole guilds devoted just to the instruments in LOTRO.

Just thinking of the possibility of The Fellowship playing Almost Easy on ye olde instruments just fills me with the will to live.

Ok that is a pretty epic power! Sure casting a firebolt is fun but have an npc burst into flames cos you yelled at him is on a whole new lvl

-M

Hooray for Dio!!!

I'm scared...
