I suggest going here for Brandywine Kinships. Most players that I've come across in LOTRO are helpful (in Elindilmir atleast). Just introduce yourself .

Well the new power supply fixed me up! I can run at Ultra High settings on DX10 now and everything is rock solid (or at least no issues after playing for 2 hours last night)!

As for the kinships, I guess I like being a loner in these games. I don't like the commitments that come from being in guilds (kinships) since my play time is sporadic. But do like interacting with other folks when I'm on and having a living/changing RPG to play in which is why I like MMORPGs...

Nice! This game has some amazing graphics. I'm just blown away running around the shire!

One issue I've been having is crashing when zoning, especially when entering the Prancing Pony. Have you guys seen this problem?

do you have dx10 on? If so then yes I experience that also. Try turning off dx10 for now. I'm thinking MoM will address these dx10 issues.

Yup, DX10 is broken by now, however people have reported that only fails with AA enabled, but I prefer DX9 with 8xAA (that's how I'm playing now) than DX10 with no AA

Default Re: LotRO DX10 Client = BOING!!1!11!!

So I've got DX10 mode working pretty solidly now. You just need to disable post processing effects and specular highlights. I'm set to 8XAA and Dx10 mode and played this way for several hours in a row yesterday without one crash.

One problem I'm having is that when I zone, I usually get some flashing textures. A quick ALT-ENTER twice fixes it though. I've tried the Cat 8.9, 8.10RC2 and the newer 8.541 drivers thate were posted on Rage3D and they all have the flashing textures problem. I'm not sure if it's Turbine or ATI's problem.

As far as the expansion goes, since I'm only up to level 16 and my trial account is JUST ending today and I bought the full game off of gogamer for $6.70 to let me play another month, I'll hold off on buying it. However, I'm wondering if you guys know if it will provide anything cool for those under Level 50 or should I just wait to pick it up until I hit 50? If this game experience is anything like WoW was for me, I'm sure it'll take me a year to come close to 50 anyway...

Moria will offer new content only for lvl 50+ players, so you won't get advantage of it until you level up

Well I found I can leave Post Processing and Specular lighting on as long as AA is off for DX10 mode and I won't crash.

However I am seeing a lot of flashing textures on trees in Midgewater swamp so maybe I'll have to try DX9 mode again. Do you guys see flashing textures on the vine covered trees in Midgewater? I turned off the lighting options and it lessens greatly but is still annoying!

I won't use DX10 again until Moria is released, I prefer DX9 with 8xAA than DX10 with no AA. Damn book 14, DX10 worked great until that book
