Hey guys,

Long time listener, first time emailer.  Love the show and particularly the banter that goes back and forth between you.  Like you Chris, I still haven’t made it to the lofty pinnacle of level 75 as IMHO, the gap between 74-75 is huge.  Seems that I’ve been here for weeks slowly grinding my way through the Heartfells towards Isengard (only play 1-2 hours every couple of nights, so don’t really get to raid much).

Also, want to preface my votes by saying that I am under geared for my level and my soldier is not maxed so usually drop the skirmish level by 3-4 to give me a fighting chance.

My votes are for:

– Strike Against Dannenglor because for some weird reason, I really like putting the hurt on bat-girls.

– Defence of the Prancing Pony for the fact that you really don’t have to take more then 10 steps from the starting position (main char is a
hunter) so it is a compact area.

Thanks for the great podcast, and as Horatio Cane would say “I hope to see you (puts on shades) in game.”

Drop by Elendilmir and say hi.

Miraween, 74 Elf Hunter aka Shane from Brisbane, Australia.
