Update 16: Ashes of Osgiliath

Three New Regions
Upper Lebennin – Defend refugees from Minas Tirith who have taken shelter from the encroaching army. Can you protect them from the forces of Mordor while still keeping Aragorn’s approach a secret from Sauron and his spies?

Lossarnach – Clear the land closest to the Rammas, the massive wall that surrounds Minas Tirith. Tensions run high with the impending siege and those who remain call for aid from any who would give it.

South Ithilien – Join the resistance! Rangers hold their ground with little to show for it, save a rising death toll and dwindling resources. Aid them in slowing and thinning the ranks of the enemy who cross the borders ahead of Sauron’s army.

Three New Instances
The Sunken Labyrinth – Fight for survival beneath Osgiliath. Rangers who fled the invading army above have discovered that the Morgulduin’s fouled currents wash many things from the ruins above. Cleanse the depths belowed the ruin city if you hope to emerge alive.

The Ruined City – Uncover a mysterious stranger dressed in Faramir's tattered cloak. This unknown man seems to stay just steps ahead of you at every turn. Is he your missing friend, or…something else?

The Dome of Stars – Infiltrate the heart of Osgiliath and ascend the largest tower in the ruined city where you must confront one of the Nazgul in the heart of his army's power.

Introducing the Imbuement System
Sting, Andúril, Glamdring - Every hero has their weapon. Name yours and have it advance with you in the new Imbuement System. Read more about how the process works, which legacies are available, and more in our latest Developer Diary.

I've done nothing but farm work, help hobbits set up a festival, chase animals and beat up brigands for two hours, and I loved every minute of it.

It's strange really, I've played practically every major MMO at this point, and the only one to grip me alongside WoW is LOTRO. Personally, I'm tired of being treated as the SAVIOUR OF THE UNIVERSE as soon as I hit level 2. Hell even by level 20 in LOTRO I still often help ordinary folk with ordinary things, and I enjoy that. If I want over the top epicness there's a million and one games that do that, but LOTRO keeps things level headed for the most part (Excluding a dream sequence that was hamfisted in at level 5 where YOU ARE THE CHOSEN ONE or some crap, but that's generally disregarded by the community and even the devs as it has yet to be brought up again). This is greatly aided by the fact the MMO is based on the -books- and not the films, which is a great relief as Radaghast for example isn't an insane lunatic and there's no mention of a rabbit sleigh just yet.

That said, when the drums of war sound, and orcs and goblins march, the game isn't afraid to take a turn into the dark and foreboding. The sky goes from a clear blue to a grim dark grey or even red as I approach Angmar, the woods and wildlife growing more desolate. I can't help but feel I've only made a small scratch in the surface of the adventures that await me yet. The mundane quests are gradually being set aside in favour of "Oh god, ♥♥♥♥'s going down, halp pls" from townsfolk, which suits me fine.

Having sunk money into the expansions and quest bundles as they were on sale (Fairly frequently), I have all but negated any -need- to subscribe. A subscription at this point would only give me a few more character slots (Which I don't need, already have five), access to PvP (Which I have no interest in), a daily XP bonus (Which doesn't last very long) and an allotment of premium currency (Which I don't really need either).

I subscribed for a single month a while ago, and that has removed currency limits, given me more character slots, and even removed the lock on my class, race and virtue trait slots on all characters I played back then.

A lot of people are put off by the in-game store, yes it does pop up now and again, especially after level 30 or so if you haven't bought any zone quest packs, but really at the point I'm at I don't really see it all that much.

Additionally, you can grind out premium currency in a fairly adequate amount, hell last time the expansions were on sale I managed to get one -purely- by grinding. It was a bit boring, but it was helped by a lovely bunch of max level players offering to help newer players like myself farm out the currency. There's even guides on getting said currency in a quick, efficient manner, if a little repetitive as it involves making characters and doing specific tasks over and over.

Is the game perfect? No, it shows some signs of age, namely in the graphics (The Beoring race/class is a fair grade higher quality than the other race models), some could argue the combat was clunky. But it's otherwise well-preserved, namely with exquisite attention to detail. Weapons make different sounds on hitting enemies based on what the enemy is or what they wear, rather than the same generic SFX being heard for hours on end, to name just one example.

As a frequent role-player, LOTRO holds the crown as the most RP friendly MMO I can think of, cut down only by it's rather archaic housing system, which is very restrictive in terms of decor (Seriously, you have to place furniture in fixed locations, meaning my bed has to be in the middle of a room...). Which is a shame, as the RP community has shrunk significantly, to the point where the only prominent RP takes place in the prancing pony inn. And obviously the quality there can often be... lacking. A great shame, but the game is niche so a tiny RP community is expected.


tl;dr: The game is good, try it. Premium currency can gradually be gained for free. Wait for zone quests and expansions to go on sale before buying them. if you like the game, considor subbing just for one month to remove the worst of the limitations on your account and characters (Remember to login to each character to unlock their traits etc while you're a VIP).

So I have played this game a lot (even more than Steam says I have) it was the first MMO I played but I have played others since I started playing LOTRO I have always been Vip and have all expansion packs also I play on the Withywindle (EU) server.


There is a lot to love about this game even if you know nothing of Tolkien' work and just want to try out something a bit different or try an mmo for the first time.

I personally know people who are lvl100 with all expansions and quest packs and they have never had to spend a penny of there own money but it truly is an epic grind to do that I personally recommend buying the quad pack of expansions to get you up to date and help you in speed of lvling.

Pros

One of the best PvE experiences I've ever had in any game. The world is massive with thousands of quests and thousands of hours of game play with plenty of instances/raids/epic battles to get involved in
+ Great community.
+ There's always something to do.
+ A good wardrobe system allowing almost endless cosmetic options.
+ Great crafting system with the ability to make epic weapons clothing etc.
+ Festivals in which you can unlock items such as mounts, clothing/gear, pets and more.
+ Almost endless exploration if your into finding new stuff in game you won't be disapointed.

Cons

+ PVMP needs a bit of a reboot you can have some epic RVR action but varies by server.
+ Can feel daunting sometimes due to size of the world.
+ Virtues can be a massive grind .
+ Crafting needs an update.
They are my pros and cons I really love this game infact I have loads of games in my steam libary unplayed due to my love of this game try it out you never know you may love it.

I walk out of Bree south gates and mount my steed. I make my way to the east, all the way through Lonely Lands, bypassing Weathertop, through the forests of Throllshaws, crossing Bruinen Ford, climbing up the hill just to walk down Pend Eregion (Sindarin for "slope of Eregion"). Then I make my way through the vast valley to Moria gates. I venture deep into the Mines and I see giant busts of ancient dwarf kings carved in stone, waterfalls running down their beards, and I marvel about generations of dwarves have put their scrupulous hardwork in it...

But, wait. It's a computer game. All that was modelled by a bunch of geeks in glasses, sitting their necks bent towards their monitors.

What is amazing about LotRO is that it feels - it IS extremely authentic. As much authentic a digital version of Middle-Earth as much authentic a world to explore and admire. Described ride would take you 30 minutes of real time if you would be running straightly from point A to point B - and did I say that every region is a huge and diverse landscape? You can actually lost in this world.

As I stand on the northern bank of Entwash, I have city of Snowbourn and huge plain landscapes of Eastern Rohan behind my back; silhouette of Edoras and enormous landscapes of Western Rohan on my right; a plain and then mountains, covered with forests, with vast landscapes of Gondor behind them - right before me, cross the river. And I can go any of this places.

Because it is the Middle-Earth.

P.S.
5 years on board, 4240 hours /played.

One of the older MMO's but if you love the world of Tolkien you will love this. This game as loads of content so theres plenty to do and see at your pace. The deeds/achievements give you turbine points to spend in store so if you are playing on the ftp you can unlock expansions & content by grinding these out.

Good Bad
Tons of gameplay quests,locations,experience etc After like lvl 30 ''F2P'' ends and you have to buy content for $$$ or grind Turbine Points.
This game is not dead yet.People are friendly and there are some nice kinships you can join. Sometimes you can meet total jerks and idiots,who just come to troll
There are many events that come by,you may receive some awesome rewards.There is lots of stuff you can do to relax PvMP is broken and unbalanced
