No Elvish Relics in Goblin Town, but lots of Mathoms
I'm trying to get the World-Renowned and Ambassador to the Elves deeds done. I'm currently in the Misty Mountains, grinding through Goblin Town and The Stairs. It has been several hours since an elvish relic has dropped. Instead what I'm getting is tons and tons of well-kept mathoms. I have so many well-kept mathoms that I could probably start up two new characters, and have enough to get them both to kindred status with the Shire.
Is this normal? Are elvish relics just that rare? There aren't enough quests in Trollshaws to get me to kindred, I out leveled the task boards in 2 days, which I think it's stupid to have level restrictions on those to begin with. Any other way to get to kindred? I don't have the ludicrous amounts of gold they ask for in the Auction House, so it seems like I'm out of luck.
I ended up having just enough skirmish marks to get to kindred. Thanks for letting me know about that. I never skirmished much, I've really neglected so many aspects of this game, purely soloing and epic quests and whatever I need to continue the epics really. I suppose I will need to go back and experience everything else. Now I just need Malledhrim and at least then I'll have ambassador to the elves done. I got a long way to go for World-Renowned yet.
