Ha, I was wondering how you got that angle for you shot. I'm currently questing around this area so I know it well, and that's not a place you should be. ;-)

Totally agree about the sense of scale, though. LOTRO does this better than any MMO I've played. The first time you ride out of Bree and see Weathertop looming in the distance you can't help but say, "Oh, wow."

you do realize there's a path (actually visible in your screenshot on the left) that will take you down there without falling, right? :P
Supervisor Beecher sends some down there to collect driftwood or something (might be a craft mastery quest, though; i know i didn't do it on all my chars).

one of my favorite memories in any game is the first time i came through the Gates of Imladris and saw Rivendell... the sun was just coming up and that valley was glistening with early dawn Elven awesomeness.

Yes, I came back and went down properly to do the Tailor quest *Chuckles*

I keep hearing about that moment coming through the Gates of Imladris; I can't wait to experience that. It looks like you arrived then at the perfect time :)

Ahhhh, LotRO.

A couple of favorite spots for me visually were the Shire -- it felt so right! -- and also the Old Forest, which was very claustrophobic, creepy, and unnerving (in other words, it was spot on!).

As much as I like to gripe about Trestlebridge (and other such locales that Turbine put in for seemingly no reason), it is really stinkin' nice to look at.

I love LotRO!
