You can, in fact, simply walk into Mordor -- you just have to finish Epic Quest Vol. IV, Book IX first. Then you can stroll on down through the broken Black Gate and start some extremely tedious questing in Udûn...
Um, hi. It's me again. No, this certainly isn't a blog entry about Darkest Dungeon or Child of Light. Nor is it about the $200 Milestone Incentive game, Dead Mountaineer's Hotel...
I can explain!
Darkest Dungeon on the PS4
However, I do feel vindicated. This past weekend my husband decided to sit down and play Darkest Dungeon. He soon suffered the same aggravation I did with the controls -- so much so that he went and repurchased the game on Steam to play on his laptop. So, I will eventually post that blog entry about it (the June Feature Entry: PTSD Awareness Month)... but you have to understand what this hurdle was like.
Child of Light vs. x360ce
But this past weekend I apologized to my Steelseries controller and fired up DS4windows, plugging in my PS4 controller. It works, so I'll be able to play more and get that blog entry (the July Feature Entry: World Watercolor Month) taken care of.
Birle Harmon, the Wise
Spoiler alert: So far, I really think it sucks...
Granted, I'm only in the first region of five, and I've been questing by myself when the area is meant for groups. I don't mind running group content with other players now and again, but I enjoy questing by myself through areas. Mordor is really going to cramp my style. In fact, it's tempting to not do it and just jump ship to Strongholds of the North. I probably shouldn't, though.
I haven't even imbued Birle's legendary items. I've never imbued anything, actually -- not even on my main on Arkenstone. I don't understand the process and don't want to make a mistake when you can't just say "lawl, jk, reset them points and lemme try again!" Now it's more like taking a deep breath, cringing, then screaming "YOLO!" and hope you did it right. I don't understand how people wanted this permanency with the legendaries when Moria was first released. Flexibility lets you figure out what works and to also adapt your play style. But I guess if I want to actually do any worthwhile damage I'll have to bite the bullet with imbuement.
On the positive side, my husband is checking out LOTRO again and learning to play without me just dragging him around like I did last time. Yay!
I'm determined to finish everything in the game -- especially collecting all of the Stray Beads!
