    Isn't it next tuesday?

    But yeah, this is your last shot at getting fancy pre-order items.
    Yeah, even if you wanted to buy everything included in the Legendary version (49$) you'd end up spending around $75 in Turbine Points alone and not get everything included still.

    Landroval is the absolute best server. It's RP, has tons of people playing and really great community.

    Buy the legendary edition for $49.99 or you'll regret it later, trust me you want the legendary one, you get +25XP, 3 cosmetic costumes, 3 horses, all the quest packs(not the expansions but you'll get those later) and +1000TP which pays pretty much everything for one of the expansions you're gonna want to buy.

    There was about 90 people in attendance. I was surprised. Weatherstock gets around five hundred people every year.

    You don't get all the quest packs, only the Path of the Fellowship Quest Packs, but it's still worth it.

    I preordered the legendary edition because I wanted the quests, but now I have a choice to make. Should I run instances with my +25% exp pocket item so that I level quickly so that I can make use of end game content more quickly, or should I take it slowly and go do tons of quests? I'm playing a captain currently.

    Don't rush, rushing is the worst thing you could possibly do. If you take your time, you'll enjoy it much more and there will be a lot more content for you. Once you get to endgame, you're going to feel like "that's it?" because you missed 5/6ths of it all if you rush.

    There is so much to see, and it would be a shame to miss it all. But don't feel oblige to take it slow. If you feel like speeding up, just slot that pocket item and go.
    Which level are you at the moment?

    Nah I'm not saying that the +25XP item is bad, it's great and helps avoid some of the grind-y bits but don't rush to 75 just so you're at endgame. Pace up a bit but still do the epic quest line and some of the endgame quests for each expansion.

    Roleplaying in the Monster play zone was just great, there was some online wedding and a orc decided to be the priest while everyone else sat perfect, however it got crashed when a orc hit a player and caused a trainwreck

    Looks like a game with allot of content... I worried that If i start playing I may miss some of the quests.
    Seeing as this is a story heavy game id like to see as much of the content as possible (not missing any quests or lving to quickly). Do you think Il have a problem with this?

    Finally hit 75. I think the questing was pretty decent. Probably better than Mirkwood was. The lack of end-game content is concerning though. Hopefully they release some quick.

    I've been playing this game without buying anything for like a month on and off, im a human rogue level 15. I can see that it's gonna get really shit if i don't spend any money, but I don't want to go on spending money. Is there a way to just make a single payment to unlock all, or most of the current quests, and get access to all the necessary things to be a decent player? I'd just like to know the best deal you can get, cheers for any advice.

    getting most from a single payment?
    what you want to do is buy moria expantion, that gives you about 6 quest packs and some other things, using actual money will also give you an extra character slot, allow a max of 4 gold and i think gets the horse riding skill.

    might be best to ask on the lotro forums

    also take the extra time to do deeds whilst your in the area since it'll still get you exp

    Cheers for the advice man, and yeah I've been doing fuckloads of deeds. Does the moria expansion only give quest packs for above certain character levels, or a range?

    the quest packs are the different regions, and each region has a level boundry.
    the regions it offers should keep you going till lvl 45 (could be wrong here).

    Built myself a new PC and then loaded this game, 1080p, ultra high details. The Shire looks REAL. Jesus Christ, I have never seen a MMORPG looking so good.

    Apart from that, I still feel like being fucked in the ass by Turbine, with their F2P crap. I find it simply unplayable, too many restrictions. And the Shire quests require me to walk. A LOT. Like, 2-4 kilometers to deliver some cookies, or to simply speak with some Hobbit. It's ridiculous. Will probably uninstall the game again, since it's no fun at all.

    Shire is more of a playground. Not a lot of proper quests there. If you started a hobbit, get straight to Bree instead and head to chetwood.

    This. The Human starting areas are much better than the others, IMO. The other areas look great, but the progression isn't fun.
