    Can't wait to try the Free to play. Then if I get stuck into it, I might buy a month or so.

    thank you kind sir.

    Edited:



    Every game got there fair share of immature player's, all you got to do is ignore those people and take a look at the other groups that play nice and friendly.

    Edited:



    Choose what you want and grow it out, know your strength and weaknesses and you know how well you can survive in combat. Every Class has it's own strategy.
    Yeah I know, but I have been there for a couple years now, it is hard to see a big change like this. It is really cool in some ways though.

    So far:

    Warden and Runemaster are two classes you need to buy from
    Bag 4 and 5 you have to pay for...
    You get a free mount at level 5 from what I've heard (which is good).
    you be able to play the skirmish at level 20.

    So far, this is what I see... and I don't know yet to determine this is bad or good...

    also longer login time and forever loading on loading screens, disabled voice over after a new chapter beginning.

    Is there a link to a place showing the Subscriprion tiers/ Benefits of F2P vs Paying?

    Took some searching but I found it:
    http://www.lotro.com/betasignup/vipchart.html

    Buy Turbine Points, automatically become a Premium member, and VIP is your basic monthly subscription which gives you everything with no restrictions

    Not a bad deal really, I hope the Cash Shop doesn't have to be abused to be viable in anything in the late game, even if you're a VIP

    The free mount only lasts a day.

    Bought lifetime back in May/June for 110. And to be honest, it isn't really that bad of a price when you think of it. At least not for someone who plays regularly. I've easily spent over 300 over the years I've been playing the game.
    And they plan to keep that price too. $110 in the US, and 110 for us Europeans, which is a bit of a bummer really since >$ in value. But oh well.

    Edited:

    At level 15 or 20 (can't remember) you can get the slower kind of mount for ~350 silver. Compared to the level 35 mount for 4g 200s.

    I don't doubt you couldn't get $110 worth of value out of a game, but to me, That's just un-doable, in one lump sum

    If you still are a subscriber you still have access to the auctionhouse. In fact, you have access to everything like normal. It's when you're not paying, your account will temporarily be downgraded to not have access to those things.

    In short: nothing will change for you

    As a subscriber, you are in the VIP-member field. If you stop paying, you will become a premium. And you won't lose anything you already own.

    Direct2Drive has LOTRO for sale for $5, and you get 30 day VIP access along with 1000 Turbine Points

    http://www.direct2drive.com/9814/pro...-Pack-Download

    Not bad, Considering VIP costs $15/month, and 1,200 Turbine Points (You get some extra included with the purchase) Costs $20

    Takes quite a while to get that much and you can buy a low level house for that.

    LotR is WoW, only for free, which makes it better.
    It is rather similar to Heroes of Three Kingdoms.

    The differences is, LotR is based on myth, HoTK is based on reality, one is in China, the other is Middle Earth.

    Ok I caved and downloaded the game, but there's VIP and stuff? What can I buy and what do I get if I buy it? Is there an item store?

    EDIT:

    http://www.lotro.com/betasignup/vipchart.html

    Can purchase, can purchase, can purchase, can purchase. Fuck this man. I bet Tolkien would be appauled at how much money they're making on this, I could play WoW for cheaper.
