I just hit level 40 with my main, Ravric the Captain of the Free Peoples. It was in Evendim where this happy event happened. It felt like a breath of fresh air. It felt like I was now one of the big boys, but my journey was far from over.
For starters, a level 40 Captain gets the awesome ability to summon anybody from anywhere to the Captain. This is really nice for times when I want to grind out a deed, and I ask the Kinship if anybody feels like coming. I can just summon them to my side rather than wait for them to work their way through the horse travel system.
Ravric is about done with Evendim (until later Epic Book Quests and Annuminas dungeons), and I am making way to Trollshaws to delve into some wilderness. With some great stuff coming in Book 14 and this recent advancement, I am have been more pumped than ever to play the first Volume of Lord of the Rings Online.
