In this episode, Harry sings. That’s all that’s really important. We talked about MMO’s as well, but we know why you’re really here. Harry’s singing.

From Tony / Garrland on Arkenstone Server (LOTRO)

Hi guys,

I travel a lot and I really enjoy your podcasts.   Due to your podcasts, I am giving LotRO a try and I’m really enjoying it as I wait for GW2 to come out.  A few brief questions if you have the time:

Did you report that to link Guild Wars and Guild Wars 2 accounts you have to have a Guild Wars password under a certain number of characters?

Has it been announced the process of how to link a GW and GW2 account?

This question might be better directed to LotRO reporter… Any tips for a budding Warden?  So far I haven’t found a lot I can not solo (Level 28 at the moment), but trying to grab aggro from my son when he is playing his Ranger or when I’m trying to tank for a group can be a challenge.

Thanks for keeping me informed and entertained on my journeys!
