Isengard Price Reductions & Legendary Version Going Away

June 25, 2012

LOTRO News, LOTRO Store

Turbine’s quartermaster posters have alerted us today about a price reduction for the Rise of Isengard expansion both in game for Turbine Points and at the LOTRO Market. This appears to be a price reduction (not a sale) so this would equal the new standard price for last year’s expansion.

LOTRO Store Cost Reductions

The price has been reduced for the entire expansion pack as well as individual pieces of the expansion (not the skirmish max trait level).

  • Isengard Expansion Pack – 30% Reduction
    Regular Price: 4,995
    REDUCED PRICE: 3,495
  • Expansion Quests: Isengard – 38% Reduction
    Regular Price: 3,250
    REDUCED PRICE: 1,995
  • Instance Cluster: Isengard – 13% Reduction
    Regular Price: 1,495
    REDUCED PRICE: 1,295
  • Raid: Draigoch’s Lair – 36% Reduction
    Regular Price: 1,250
    REDUCED PRICE: 795
  • Expansion Quests: Mirkwood – 30% Reduction
    Regular Price: 995
    REDUCED PRICE: 695

Even with the reductions, the best price to buy the entire expansion is with the Expansion Pack offer. To buy the entire expansion piece by piece (including the skirmish trait max rank 35) would cost 4280 TP. The expansion pack is 18% cheaper. If you do not want to purchase the entire expansion, the reductions on the individual pieces especially the quests and Draigoch are pretty nice.

Mirkwood has been reduced by 300 TP as well! I find it curious that Moria’s (the first expansion) price isn’t listed as being reduced as well.

LOTRO Market Cost Reductions

LOTRO-market_ENReductions for Rise of Isengard on the LOTRO Market is only for the Heroic and Base editions ($10 off in each case)

  • Heroic
    Regular Price: $39.99
    REDUCED PRICE: $29.99
  • Base
    Regular Price: $29.99
    REDUCED PRICE: $19.99

Rise of Isengard Legendary Edition Leaving July 9th

Turbine is removing the Legendary Edition offering for Rise of Isengard entirely on July 9th. No price reduction, just it’s going to go away. This will be your last chance to get the bonus items included in this package if they are at all appealing to you!

Bonus Items:

  • All three Rohirrim Style Mounts with a blanket & emblem in the colours of green, red and white
  • All three sets of matching cosmetic Rohirrim Style armour in the colours of green, red and white
  • An in-game title – Guard of the Isen
  • Access to the Path of the Fellowship Quest Packs including Trollshaws, Eregion, Lothlórien and Moria plus the Mirkwood Quest Pack as a special bonus
  • 1,000 Turbine Points for use in the LOTRO Store

Again, it is still listed at it’s full $49.99 price tag so it’s not a close-out sale or anything, it’s now just a limited time offer! July 9, 2012 is your last chance to pick this edition up.

Special thank you to @rwfrk and @tanek_09 on twitter for alerting us to this news!

    I was expecting this. Nearly all videogames get cheaper as time goes on. The same is true for their expansions. Isengard is becoming cheaper now because Rohan is on the horizon. You’re going to continue to move units of ROI because the lower price is going to be less daunting to new players just coming to that point in the game. The price point is going to be more palatable.

    Does that mean that players who have bought ROI in the past year are getting ripped off? No. Does it mean Turbine owes those of us who bought ROI already something more? Absolutely not. We hear the same complaints every time Steam has a big sale. “I just bought this game the other day at full price! Valve owes me money!” No, they don’t. You bought it at the price it was at that time. If you didn’t want to pay that price, you should have waited for a sale.

    I imagine when the next xpac is announced, the price for Rohan will also be reduced, because they want new players to keep buying expansion content.

      Yea, they do. Isengard was atrocious and Turbine should reward those who actually played through, the absolute worst expansion, LOTRO(or any game) has had to date.

        That’s a matter of opinion. Honestly, I found Mirkwood worse than Isengard. That still doesn’t mean that Turbine owes us anything.

    It’s perfectly normal, otherwise buying all content for someone just starting out would be overwhelming. :)

    I understand reason to get away RoI legendary.. Because of Steam and web advertising quite many new players are joining game and with RoI legendary they could buy the most important questpacks for low price. But there will still be RoR heroic edition with Evendim, Moria, Lothlorien for 50$..
