Weatherstock 2012 is Tomorrow!

June 15, 2012

Weatherstock

weatherstock_600_2Tomorrow 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 the beginning of Episode 146 for more information about attending in person from Locney!

    Thanks for the streaming on the MENR! Would have missed it if not for you guys (and girl ;) )
    I tried to hear it live, connected to the server, been there for a while until someone did an AoE and game crashed. Tried a couple of times, same result.
    Oh well…

    I didn’t get to stay too long but I enjoyed the time I was there.Outside of a few incidents of some idiots doing force emotes to screw up the bands playing, it was a good time.
