Run...It's a Stampede! - #NBI2015Safari

These fellows are quire the Mumak-illers!
As part of my second Safari shot, I shall be rolling with The Scariest Place category to accompany several Mumakil (or, being a hobbit, I suppose I should say Oliphaunts?) that have taken an interest in my gal. One even started barreling down on me - it's a good thing I take leg day seriously! Don't mind the ring over their head - I must have forgotten to disable that option before taking the shot (it just means they're part of a quest).

While Mumakil themselves are not evil, their enslavement by the Haradrim certainly causes them to be feared by most. If one of these oversized peanut-lovers are on your tail, it's bad new's bears for you. Although, if you are Legolas, it's basically a playground at Chuckie Cheese.

We have seen creatures like the mammoth in LOTRO, but the latest area of the game, East Gondor (Update 16) introduces this big papa of four-legged creatures in Middle Earth. Another shot below (not part of the Safari...more of an outtake) shows what happens when you try to mess with a Mumak without the use of your UI. I quite enjoyed the limbs captured in the image (and yes, it's over 9000). Ripperoni pepperoni!

  1. Oh, that's amazing! I'll have to get further with questing in Gondor to see these. Poor hobbit!
