Valentine’s day is coming to Middle-Earth! Join the celebrations, as we celebrate tales of love all across the land. Whether you already have found that special someone in your life or are still looking for him/her, take part of the festivities and spread the love.
Serenades and Songs
Get inspired by the Song of Beren and Luthien, as there’s nothing better then music to speak of love! Find yourself a lute and sing to your lover, to all the ladies at the Pony, or even better, get paid to sing for someone else.
My little hobbit Cassyan used to offer her minstrel services in exchange of a few coins, and made quite a nice pile of gold out of it! Visit our Music Guides if you’re looking to learn how to become a LOTRO musician. Here are some of her favourite love songs, with lyrics and ABC music sheets. Feel free to adjust the lyrics to your own story!
And don’t forget to send your lover or friend a present to celebrate! Apart from the traditional flower arrangements made by cooks or easily available on the AH, you could also come up with a gift of your own. High level crafter items, when crit, allows you to inscribe a note on the object. It’s the perfect way to seal your love in a piece of jewelry or dedicate a weapon to your special friend. Other great gifts could also be cosmetic items from Skirmish vendors. And of course, remember there’s no better to say ‘’I love you’, than saying it with a pie!
If you’re looking for a private place to take your date out, here are some recommendations for you. For more inspiration, see our guide on festive locations. Where would you take out your date?
In any case, let us know how you’re planning to spread the love in Middle-Earth this year!
Happy Valentines! xxx
