Playing a Captain

Recently I was asked by one of my editors to write an guide to playing a Captain in Lord of the Rings Online. My prompt response was that I don’t write guides. He wasn’t ready to let me out of writing something though so instead we agreed on a small op-ed piece about me playing a Captain.

I don’t like to tell people how to play a class in any game. As far as I’m concerned there is no right or wrong way to play something. How I play something will always be different to how the next guy does. In the gaming world this is a long running debate on classes. Wat is best for what and how to play certain ways. Obviously I don’t follow this logic and feel people should jsut play how they enjoy it.

So here is the outcome of that article. I know left things out, but it isn’t a guide, it’s jsut a small way of how I play and what I think is important in playing a Captain. Oh and that screenshot is a picture of my very own character.

  1. Pretty coold article. And the discussion was interesting – wasn’t aware LotR used morale over HP.

  2. Well it is still HP, but Turbine has interpreted it into something that is more fitting for the setting and the game. That in itself is a bit different to many games out there as they don’t often thing about their setting and the context of something like HPs.
