First off depending on how long you have been playing LOTRO (not Creep side) you have a different portrait for each year. Pictures of all 5 portraits can be found on the Mistress of Mordor blog.
Players also get sigils of dedication depending on how long they have been playing LotRO. With these sigils they can buy special anniversary Creep skins.
- 1 Sigil- 0 to 2 years
- 2 Sigils- 3 to 4 years
- 3 Sigils- 5 years
One of the creep skins (left in following pictures) only costs 1 sigil. The other creep skin costs 2 sigils (right). This means that a 5 year LOTRO player can get both skins, a 3-4 year player can get either skin and a 0-2 year player can get the basic skin. Note that each class each has two sets of new skins.
Left costs 1 sigil; Right costs 2 sigils
You can see the other Defiler skin on the Mistress of Mordor blog posting.
As you can see there are some really cool skins for Creeps now and this has really made PvP much more enjoyable. I have had a lot more fun just from a simple aesthetic change to the skin of my Creep. I am more then thankful to Turbine for making these awesome skins and giving them to long time LOTRO players for free.
Also included in the update are Anniversary tokens to get special boxes that have some basic consumables that can be purchased normally with commendations. These tokens can be found in enemy NPC’s, so go kill some hobbits!
I loved the things that Turbine thought of for this Anniversary and I am looking forward to see what comes next with this new focus on PvMP.
So what is your favorite skin? What do you want Turbine to do next for Creeps?
