Not to be outdone by Steam, GameStop is having a sale on the boxed version of The Lord of the Rings Online: Mithril Edition for $9.99; down from $19.99. That is a discount of 50%! (Technically it’s about 49.97%, but we’ll call it 50% to be safe.)
This is the lowest we have seen the Mithril edition go down in price, so if you’ve hesitated before you might want to reconsider. Unfortunately the Digital Edition is still missing from the website so you’ll have to order the boxed edition if you’re interested. I’m also unsure of how this might affect those outside of the United States, so if you those of you outside of the U.S. can provide any information about the sale and how it affects you I would appreciate it. I will update the article afterwards appropriately.
Update: Several commenters have stated that while they can order the product from outside the United States, the shipping fees are quite high and therefore negate the value of the sale. Sorry all!
Just to rehash, the Mithril Edition comes with quite a bit of features, including:
- Exclusive Steed of the Horse-lord mount
- 2000 Turbine Points
- Path of the Fellowship Quest Pack (Trollshaws, Eregion, Moria & Lothlorien)
I have to say that the price on this is really good for the Turbine Points alone. Plus you’ll also get an account wide horse for all your characters as well. Note that if you purchased this already, you cannot apply a second code to your account and get the bonus Turbine Points.
Thank you to Draculetta for informing us about the sale.
