Tomorrow at 4pm Eastern (-4 GMT) starts the epic in-game music festival, Weatherstock!
Weatherstock is an in game music festival hosted on the Landroval server featuring bands from all sorts of LOTRO servers to come and perform in a massive concert set on top of Weathertop in the Lone-lands.
We’ve been gearing up and excited for this event since Harperella of the Lonely Mountain Band on Landroval announced it!
This post is to help point out all the different ways you can participate in this amazing player created event!
Not an Eastern time zone native? Did you know you can type /servertime to see the time for the Eastern time zone (where Turbine’s servers are)?
Attend on Landroval
Weatherstock is hosted on the Landroval server. It is free for all to attend and be apart of this huge player-event in game. It isn’t for native Landroval players only.
Simply make a new character on the Landroval server and level them through the introduction instance. Alternatively if you are impatient like me, you can purchase the “Vet Status” from the store which will allow you to skip the intro and instantly become level 5.
Then head towards the Lone-lands and Amon Sul (Weathertop). The Lonely Mountain Band have security (aka high level volunteers) available to help lower levels make it to Weatherstock and keep baddies from attacking them during the performances.
Be forewarned that this is a huge event and there will be lag! Visit the Weatherstock Lore-book entry for some tips on how to reduce some of that lag. As with any well organized event, there are some rules that LMB asks it’s participants to follow to make the event enjoyable by all.
For those wishing to attend but can’t quite handle the craziness on top of Weathertop are invited to the Freak Out zone. This year it is hosted at the Forsaken Inn.
Listen to Live Commentary from CSTM
Merric and Goldenstar will be broadcasting the entire Weatherstock event live on Middle-earth Network Radio. This will be an audio feed only of the event
We plan on commentary and information during the event but allow the music of the players to shine through during their performance. We also will have special guests joining us so it won’t be just only us blabbering on!
Merric and Goldenstar will be in the crowd on Landroval as well so be sure to say hi!
The @Weatherstock twitter account will be live tweeting the event for those interested in following along from a distance or want an alert to their favorite band coming up!
