The Road goes ever on and on....
I am moving on from Turbine and I wanted to thank all of you for a wonderful experience. The creation of the Warden class is the one thing I am most proud of during my time at Turbine. I will always remember Steve, cookys, ferrets and all of your wonderful stories about becoming Wadens.
And whither then? I cannot say.

Blessings to wherever you go Graalx2, wish you all the best.
Thank you for everything you've done for the warden community.
Those who can, do; those who can't, complain

I havent rolled a warden, but all the same good luck to you on your endeavors and thanks for all you've done for the class. I often find myself looking upon wardens with a combination of wonder and envy as I roam Middle Earth. You deserve to be proud of it.

Turbine wont destroy Lotro, WB will. goodbye Graal, I'd like to thank you for everything you've done to Wardens, Guards & Captains.
You are ill-equipped to venture into Moria!

Thank you for all your efforts while working on this game.
The warden class is an excellent example of you being able to think outside the box.
It is a wonderful class with a great mechanic to play.
It is sad to see you go - I wish you all the best on your future endeavors.

Graal, I would like to thank you. The creation of this class has given me many hours of enjoyment. I would have never stuck to lotro if not for the warden. It is the single best class in any game ever created! Im sad to see you go, but I wish you the best of luck in your travels.
Oct 26 2012 07:58 AM #18

Your creation is what keeps me in the game after all this years, thanks for that.
I wish you only the best on your next adventure.
Where will your road move on to?

The warden was an incredibly unique and intricate class, when I first heard it I was worried about about the overlap and future of the guardian class. But once I rolled one many moons ago in Moria it was clear it was created with care and compassion for all class while occupying a unique space in Middle Earth. I stuck with the Guardian but I hope your proud of your achievements as we are Graal and all the best in the future.

Wardens are one of the most interesting, complex class created and we thank you immensely for that. With your skills your future is rosy and promising. Hate to see you go,

You will be missed
Your clear communications with the players, quick acknowledgement when things weren't working as intended, and the give and take on the forums will be long remembered.
And yeah, Waden's are awesome! Incredible fun to play.
Thanks for giving us a chance to say farewell.
Best of luck in all your future endeavors.
Still round the corner there may wait
A new road or a secret gate,
And though I oft have passed them by,
A day will come at last when I
Shall take the hidden paths that run
West of the Moon, East of the Sun.

Sorry to hear this...
Thanks for everything you've done for the game, big and small. Best of luck to you wherever the road may take you.

Sad to see you go! Thanks for all the years making Champs an effing blast to play, and all the years since making the others just as fun.
Really depressing to see LOTRO icons disappearing...hope you land a great job, and come back and play with us!Work like no one is watching, dance like you don't need the money...

Your creation of the Warden is what has kept me subbed. My main minstrel is fun but there is something about the Warden playstyle, the feeling that if I can just get faster or smarter with my rotation that I can become indestructable, that keeps me coming back for more.
Despite the warts you can definitely hang your hat on the class. There is nothing else like it out there.
Very sad to see such a creator of originality go. Good luck and whoever picks you up is a lucky employer.
Curiously, the evolution of the internet seems inversely proportional to the evolution of man.
