      Healer- Minstrel, Runekeeper or Lore-master.

      Option 2
      Challenge: Find your way to the top of Weathertop and explore the summit.

      Note: You will NOT encounter and mobs or bosses and therefore not gain any xp.

      This can be completed solo or with a fellowship.

        Well done for managing to get a screenshot mid battle! I’m happy if I manage to stay alive!

      Hey guys,

      If you’re doing the video then here’s a link to mine :https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6PTFwMMwIdY

      I went OTT on this assignment.

      Had a great weekend Weathertopping with everyone and will add pics shortly.

        This is an excellent video, you did exactly what the assignment wanted and more. Very detailed, will make me re-read the book to see how much I missed. I should’ve watched your video first before creating mine!

    • #373

      Hmm, which pictures?

    • #377

      Here’s some more from Today’s event. We had a whale of a time, we did a walking tour this time. Lots of dancing and fireworks at the Forsaken Inn, followed by more of the same at the summit. My favourite parts were the hide and seek, and the race back to Candy’s camp.

      Here’s photos from this morning’s event, I’ll upload the video when it’s finished loading on YouTube.

      My submission for the distinction track video assignment:

      • #389

        You should be working for Naughty Dog, Blizzard or sth…That was a textbook example of how the assignment should be.

    • #383

      Luri, as always your pictures are amazing!!! I love the fireworks one and the ones of you playing your music.

      And again, your video is also fantastic. You always manage to get some great shots while on the run-I haven’t mastered that skill yet. I love the mix of stills and moving image and you cover key areas in your comparison. You’ll pass with flying colours!


      • #386

        My best tip for running footage is to follow an elf who knows where she’s going! ;) I was very lucky you were a careful driver otherwise I’d have went falling to my death!
