Turbine has modified their refer a friend program slightly by adding a brand new steed into the rewards for referring your friends to LOTRO.
In case you were not aware here’s how referrals to LOTRO work.
Players can invite unlimited number of friends to play LOTRO and if they sign up for a new LOTRO account through your referral link, you will earn 10% of the Turbine Points they purchase in the in-game store. They purchase 1000 Turbine Points and a magical 100 Turbine Points will be awarded to you as well for as long as they play. It does not count towards any Turbine Points earned through VIP or through promotion (like the Steam sale) or for free (like a screenshot contest).
The recent change includes the addition of earning a brand new mount for your referrals. If you refer five new friends and they sign up to play, not only will you still earn 10% of their in-game TP purchases, but you will also receive a Steed of the Winged Herald.
I have no idea on the stats of this horse so if you know anyone who actually earns one, please share that information.
According to the referral program terms of service: “Only players located in the North America (excluding Quebec), Australia and New Zealand are eligible for this Referral Program.”
For more information on how to send links to your friends, see the Referrals FAQ Guide. Page listing the steed information can be found here.
Special thank you to our friend Ardin for pointing out this addition to us!
