    The asterisks basically indicate that you keep all the benefits of the MoM and SoM expansions if you’ve bought them.

    Basicly the game wont change for existing players with subs and lifetimes + expansions.

    If you have it now you will have it after the update

    Thinking more about what ‘World Access’ and quest packs means.

    I’m reading World Access, as a F2P player CAN run into the north downs, and into esteldin, and kill mobs, however, all the npcs have for example- ‘greyed’ rings or ‘crossed out’ rings for all the quests over their heads until you buy the north downs, when you buy that all the rings unlock. Then you can go ahead and bore yourself silly with Dol Dinen and lord knows what else.

    Of course I exclude Moria and Mirkwood, as they are easy to ‘seal off’ as they were bolt on, and more improtantly they have already said that will require additonal purchase for F2P.
