The following items are on sale from October 19-25th. Below you will find the sale listings as well as our recommendation on purchasing.
Free Sample of the Week
The coupon code this week is for a brand new item introduced with Rohan. The description in the store is:
When used, this item lets you instantly remount your War-steed once in the next ten minutes. Your War-steed is summoned with full health, making this item perfect to give you that extra edge in a pitched battle. Each use only lets you mount your War-steed instantly once, so be careful about when you use it. Delivers a Writ of Remount.
This item has a minimum level of 75 on it so you will not be able to use this coupon for lower level characters. This code will only work on the single boost (50 TP), not on the 5 stack.
Use Coupon Code: RAPID5
Limited Release: Annuminas Cosmetic Gear
Starting today you can find the Annuminas gear in cosmetic form in the LOTRO Store. There are three sets (light, medium, heavy armour) but because they are cosmetic, you can select and wear whatever you like. All items are able to be dyed.
- Ceremonial Seven Stars Outfit
- Ceremonial Nenuial’s Outfit
- Ceremonial West-Tower Outfit
Pieces are 295 Turbine Points each or 1495 for a complete set.
Gear available until November 1, 2012.
This gear is available in game to earn with skirmish marks/medallions so you do not have to buy these items unless you just want the convenience of purchasing and instantly having them.
Unannounced Sale: Virtues
I found virtues to be 26% off in the store today but could find no mention of these items being on sale. So I don’t know if it’s intended or how long it will last but it is there for those who were interested in purchasing some virtues!
I thought the sale of 26% off was odd so I did a little investigating. Here’s the scoop. The overall price of virtues have increased by 100 Turbine Points. The discount is bringing the cost back down to the normal price. The end result is of course the same but I wanted to make it clear that this sale is giving you access to the old pricing for a limited time.
This special pricing is available until October 29th.
Weekly Store Sale
Spending too much valuable time searching for miscellaneous crafting ingredients scattered throughout Middle-earth? Can’t locate a vendor? Take advantage of one stop shopping in the LOTRO Store and get back to crafting! Ingredient Packs are used in place of traditional ingredients, so stop the search and get to work on your recipes! Applies to Apprentice, Journeyman, Expert, Artisan, Master, Supreme and Westfold profession tiers.
*Does not include Tier 8 Ingredient Packs
Store Location: Crafting → Ingredient Packs
CSTM RECOMMENDATION: This is a short cut if your short on in-game cash or just really hate the idea of gathering materials yourself. The items you make will not be able to be traded or sold so if you plan to make something useful for others you will have to get real materials.
Make your Legendary Item more powerful by upgrading your relic’s tier! Refining relics will also yield shards, which can be used to create unique relics, legacy scrolls, and more!
*Does not include Tier 7 Relic Packs
Store Location: Goods & Services → Legendary Items → Relics
CSTM RECOMMENDATION: If you are one who are really into the legendary items system I can see maybe buying these but for the rest of us mere mortals I think your points can be better off spending elsewhere and getting our relics in the normal fashion.
Crafting Guild Access
Improve your chosen profession by unlocking a Crafting Guild progression! Crafting Guilds provide additional paths of advancement for many professions. Membership in a crafting guild is exclusive – you may only be a member of one at a time. Available to Cook, Jeweller, Metalsmith, Scholar, Tailor, Weaponsmith, and Woodworker professions.
Store Location: Crafting → Guilds
CSTM RECOMMENDATION: Like the badge says this is free for VIPs. Purchasing will unlock the guild access for the account but you are only unlocking that particular profession’s guild access for the account (meaning you have to unlock the cook guild separately from the jeweler, etc). So only super useful if you plan to make a ton of metalsmiths which I suppose is entirely possible if you hop around on different servers. If interested in crafting and getting some the best recipes, this is a good purchase to pick up.
Scrolls of Craft Acceleration
Use a Scroll of Craft Acceleration to gain a bonus to experience earned from crafting! Affects all Cook, Jeweller, Metalsmith, Scholar, Tailor, Weaponsmith, and Woodworker recipes.
Store Location: Crafting → Craft Boosts
CSTM RECOMMENDATION: This is a way to skip the grind. It seems short being only 10 minutes but if you are fully stacked on material you can craft a whole lot of items in that time. It’s a meh as you of course could do this the slow and steady way. Note that this is only for the maker professions and not the gatherer professions of Forester or Prospector.
