    [–] Extending progress time ex0- 6 points ago in lotro

    No they didn't.

    [–] Pretty fun v5 I did a few months back (sorry for the random background talk) ex0- 4 points ago in climbing

    So incredibly glad UK gyms don't do that horrible tape thing. That looks atrocious.

    [–] Sending a "not a V4 in your gym" V4. Only took 3 weeks and 100 attempts... ex0- 11 points ago in climbing

    Nice! Footwork was very good. I reckon those shiny new Miuras guided you to victory!

    That explains why I see all those pros regularly climbing with socks. Oh wait, no one does.

    It also explains why all those people that sell climbing shoes tell potential customers to buy shoes that are big enough to accomodate socks as well as feet. Oh wait, none of them do..

    I'm not saying wearing socks with shoes is completely wrong, cause I've worn them as well in long multis where I need shoes that won't crush my toes and my feet will get cold sitting at belays, but indoor bouldering is not a place for socks in shoes. That's why the only people you usually see doing it indoors are nubs in rental shoes.

    Boulderers generally don't wear socks because bouldering shoes should be tight and form fitting. If you're able to wear socks they are probably too big and that means you're not getting the precision you would if you had fitting shoes without socks. You simply can't feel things as well if there's a second layer between your toes and the rubber (not to mention the material of socks WILL move and annoy you).

    Climbing shoes aren't meant to be worn with socks. You're literally putting yourself at a disadvantage by doing so. This is obvious.

    People that boulder indoors regularly & hard do not wear socks in their shoes.

    Your shoes are too big.

    Hell, all the people climbing v10+ in my gym wear socks.

    No they aren't (unless you're climbing in Alaska).

    [–] Runekeeper and Warden in Legacy? ex0- 1 points ago in lotro

    Theres a thread about this in the oficial forums if you want to check.

    I saw that thread - bunch of bitter endgame people whining about their servers dying. You would think that by now they would accept the game including its faults. Log onto the legendary server sometime and check out all the people that are enjoying the game!

    [–] Warden Tanks ex0- 1 points ago in lotro

    I miss those days :(

    I played on Laurelin like 6+ years ago mainly for the PvMP but the creeps were annihilating the freeps due to numbers so I switched sides and Wardened my way to victory! Then quit .. and now restarting on Anor with a new Warden with trait trees and it's quite different. Still fun though and Warden feels crazy overpowered in Landscape while still being able to awkwardly tank in instances.

    [–] Problem with an Agility Tome I bought in the Store ex0- 1 points ago * (lasted edited 2 days ago) in lotro

    Sounds like it's not Agility Tome I to me. You have to use them in order. I > II > III > IV ...

    [–] Returning players crafting questions ex0- 1 points ago * (lasted edited 2 days ago) in lotro

    1/ Depends on how much time you have or what your intention is.

    2/ No.

    3/ Depends how you do it - basically you have tiers 1 to something. When you complete a tier you move onto the next tier. But in order to craft the best stuff you need to master the tiers in order as well which takes about 1.5 times longer than completing the tiers in the first place does. So lets say 200 points to complete tier 1 you'd need a further 300 to master. You can ignore the masteries and just complete the all the tiers but you'd have to go back and master them after.

    4/ Depends on what craft you choose. I'd go for something moneymaking and then buy your gear unless you specifically want to craft it.

    5/ It doesn't matter. Go for something useful like cooking or scholar so you can make consumables would be a good idea. They also make great money so you can craft > sell > buy the stuff you can't make yourself. There's definitely no specific craft for specific classes. Though obviously if you play a hunter or warden you might trend towards woodworking because then you can make your own bows/spears/javelins etc. Think carefully about that though because you'll get trapped in a useless craft with no way to profit from it. There's loads of woodworkers around - how many people do you think need bows and javelins? Not that many..

    Bite the bullet and get on the legendary server buddy. The difference is insane compared to the ghostland that is lower levels (lower levels being everything under 100) on the normal servers.

    [–] Sent my first outdoor v10 a few weeks ago.. check the tiny dab ex0- 1 points ago in climbing

    I'm sorry man, I totally missed the sarcasm or that it was you I was responding to (hence tagging you at the end of the post!). All good though!

    [–] Account wipe? ex0- 1 points ago in lotro

    Ditto.

    [–] Help me put together a rack! ex0- 2 points ago in climbing

    I definitely wouldn't bother with your gym.

    Ebay, FB groups, MP for sale forum (if you're in the US).

    [–] Help me put together a rack! ex0- 1 points ago in climbing

    Buy everything second hand. A full set of wallnuts or stoppers, set of dmm offsets, c4s from .5 - 3 (though I like the smaller 3 as well) and then slingdraws. Get plenty of slings and lockers too.

    +101 upvotes to this. Insane. Shows you how little the people here know about climbing or safety!

    [–] Sent my first outdoor v10 a few weeks ago.. check the tiny dab ex0- 3 points ago * (lasted edited 3 days ago) in climbing

    That gets you into slippery territory over whether something 'helped' or not. People have differing tolerances of 'helped'. I personally agree with u/johnwesley - It's either a clean climb or it's not.

    I do agree with you that the dab didn't help the OP at all but I'd be repeating it if it were me.

    It is personal. For me, in moments like this when judging my own achievements, I think back to Peter Croft. Paraphrasing here, "If someone asks you 'Did you do the thing?' and you say 'Yes, but....', that 'but', thats just the killer, its the worst".

    Hard not to agree with u/pusherofboxes here (who shouldn't have been downvoted).

    Is this a game of guess the server?

    [–] Sport mountaineering. Is that a thing? ex0- 1 points ago in climbing

    There's a great deal of fully bolted multipitch in the EU. A lot in France and Austria in particular.

    [–] Anor first Rift completion? ex0- 2 points ago * (lasted edited 4 days ago) in lotro

    That's from the FB legendary server group buddy. Perhaps it's another desperate person using a popular streamer's name for attention and they stole your images? :)
