The announcement that the Steed of Night was leaving the LOTRO Store started some grumblings among players who had taken the original announcement of the Steed of Night as a permanent addition to the store.
QuarterMasterm had posted that using the word “permanently” in the announcement was a poor choice of words and apologized for confusion. It was apparent that the Steed of Night was still slated for departure on January 16th.
Today QuarterMasterm as announced that because of the confusion the wording may have caused they will keep the Steed of Night in the store for now with plans to change it’s offering in the future.
We’ve reviewed our previous Steed of Night announcement and agree that the use of the word “permanent” was an incorrect choice. In recognition of the confusion this term caused, we’re keeping the Steed of Night in the LOTRO Store for now. While the Steed will now remain available in the store for some time, the truth of the matter is that nothing in the store is truly permanent, and that includes this mount. As the game progresses we will always reserve the right to adjust store offerings. Going forward, the Steed will be treated as a regular item and as such may be subject to future changes.
So fear not you lovers of the Steed of Night. It is still available and not leaving this Sunday, for now anyway!
