Did you know
Fellowship manoeuvers – a la Layanor
You know when you play in a group and wonder what that four colors thingy is that pops up during combat?
That is a Fellowship Maneuver. Some call it a CJ or *conjunction* because it was called that during beta.
Here is the break down.
Green: Gives everyone some morale back
Blue: Gives you power back
Red: Direct damage
Yellow: Damage over time bleed
More of these in a row will make the effect bigger. Such as four green will heal a lot more morale than normal.
The creep’s fellowship maneuver is called “Warband Manouvre”
I have met no creep that knows what they all do! So here is the break down.
Purple: Morale transfer from the target to the group
Yellow: Damage with power transfer to the group
Pink: Direct damage

Happy fellowshipping my minions!

Skirmish of Skirmishes
From Kiralynn of Landroval
I’m not sure if this is the sort of thing you are interested in, but just in case, I thought I would pass the news along.
Windy Acres Ranch and the Lonely Mountain Band are hosting a series of events called the Spring Racing Carnival.
These events take place on Friday, May 4th and Saturday, May 5th.
There will be several horse races, a mounted fashion contest, a horse parade, an open concert, a fireworks show, and other fun events.
More information is available at WindyAcres.MyMiddle-Earth.net
Here is a direct link to the event schedule:
This event is getting significant support from Turbine. It should be a lot of fun for all players, even low-level visitors from other servers.
I hope to see you there. By the way, I love your web site!
From Feralir of Windfola
For Ford of Bruinen vs Icy Crevasse, I heartily vote Ford of Bruinen. I really like that skirmish, though I know I’m in the minority. Maybe because I’ve only done it solo?
It’s fun because you really need to kill the two shamans at the beginning of each phase, at the same time as the first wave of attackers (lieutenant-free), to avoid one of the Elrond sons aggroing them at the worst time possible. Adds a bit of challenge. The boss fight is fun, too. Nothing beats seeing the river smash the shield off the final boss’ helper.
I also like the feeling of defending Rivendell side by side with Elrond’s sons. I’m not really a role player, but that skirmish always pulls me in.
