Fun times with Flake droppers

So I posted this on You-tube but it was one of those fun fights where after a while I realized I was being incredibly stupid and not fighting with weapons or a shield.  You would’ve thought I would figure that out sooner – but it took me until I was at about 1/3 health to realize how big an idiot I am.  Luckily this is something wardens are really good at recovering from and I was able to morale surf enough to bring him down.  And now I have another Mithril flake waiting for when I get to Kindred with the Mirkwood elves and see what goodies they have to craft.

  1. How do you capture video on your system? I’m intrigued by that, and want to take vids of my own adventures.

    • I’m slowly figuring this all out, but by no means am I an expert. These last couple of videos have gone rather smoothly, so here’s what I’m currently doing. I use a tool called Fraps to capture the audio/video from LOTRO – I paid $30 for it but it seems to be the best tool out there. XFire is another option but I had issues with that as I could only capture with certain compression schemes. This video is uncompressed, so I use a tool called Avidemux to compress and edit it. It is a free tool highly recommended by the folks over at CNet – so more trustworthy then some other free-ware tools out there. I’m just using the MPEG4 compression and not mucking with too many other settings and it appears to be working fine for now. I also then realized through YouTube if you use Google Gears you can upload multiple videos at a time which is pretty handy as well.
      Now I don’t do a whole lot of editing, so I’m sure others have more elegant solutions then what I have but so far it seems to be working relatively painlessly.
