Weekly Store Sale Starting December 7, 2012

December 6, 2012



The following items are on sale from December 7 – 13. Below you will find the sale listings as well as our recommendation on purchasing.

December Deals

The free samples will most likely be replaced by the new December Deals that will be going through-out the month of December. How Turbine is doing it this year is a couple items on sale over the weekend rather than a new item sale each day.

Weekly Sales


Custom-tailor your character’s strengths based on your play-style or fellowship need by equipping stackable Virtues. Experience increased morale and power, mitigate various damage types, and more!

Store Location: Character → Virtues
Levels: Varies

CSTM RECOMMENDATION: These get a “meh” simply because you can earn these in the game grinding them via the deed system. A nice short-cut to a long grind but not a necessary purchase. If grinding is the thing that gets on your nerves then no harm in buying them at all.

tomesTrait Slots

Customize and make your character more powerful by unlocking additional Virtue, Class, Race or Legendary Trait Slots to use with your virtues, traits, and legendary abilities.

Store Location: Character → Character Upgrades → Trait Slots
Levels: Varies

CSTM RECOMMENDATION: First it’s important to note that this is only for free and premium players. VIPS have access to all their virtue, class, race and legendary trait slots, however they unlock at specific levels so it may not look like they are not available to a VIP at first.

These may not be an important buy at the earlier levels but those who’ve progressed a ways will want to consider buying these. They are like equipping additional stats that otherwise you’ll be missing out on. I’ll make a guess and say they may start coming in pretty handy around the level 40+ range.

Slayer Deed Accelerators

Increase the size of your quest log, earn virtues, titles, and even Turbine Points by completing deeds! Earn double-rewards for slaying Goblins, Spiders, and more for 30-60 minutes! Single & 5-stacks available.

Store Location: Buffs & Boosts → Advancement → Deed
Levels: 5+

CSTM RECOMMENDATION: These are great ways to finish up deeds quicker and reduce the grind. If you’re like me and find the idea of killing 320 wargs to earn a virtue a chore than you will definitely like these little boosters.

Skill Deed Boosts

Double your Class Skill rate and remove the daily limit for 30/60 minutes! Single and 5-stacks available!

Store Location: Buffs & Boosts → Advancement → Deed
Levels: All

CSTM RECOMMENDATION: These certainly can be nice boost especially for dratted skill ups such as rez deeds. Also can be handy for skills that don’t require you to be in combat so you can do whatever you please in game and keep smacking those skills for skill-ups during the time limit. For the most part though, you’ll able to earn these deeds as you play along and are not really needing any assistance from a boost.

    Trait Slots are great but sometimes if you are alt happy like me (must have a character for each class) then you end up with like 9+ alts per server –still working up to get them all to level 20 :)

    If that is the case it would be cheaper to go VIP for a month to unlock the trait slots, gold cap, special travel locations, etc…

    Just make sure you have all (or most) of your alts created before you go VIP so they all benefit from the time. I made the mistake of going VIP for a month before I had purchased all of the character slots and created all of my alts so half are unlocked and the other half are still missing traits.

    I wonder if we’ll see the 6th Bag on sale in the december sales marathon … ;)

    Regarding the trait slots, I noticed the current lottery for the 20′s has a legendary slot unlock token in the prize pool. Odd placement in the level bands but worth entering on that offchance of a win.

    I got two days ago an email grom lotro with the subject: “LOTRO – Level up and explore Rohan! Tips on Mounted Combat, War-steed customization, and Hytbold” inside was also a coupon for a free 100% XP-Boost: XPBOOST8

    I just redeemd this code for me, so it is still working. Maybe they just started to send out the codes with their newsletter, so people will actually read them?

    Virtues at 30% off – should get a double meh. They used to be 295 per, now 395 per. So basically if you buy Virtues through the store, it costs you now an “extra” $200 to max out (based on Virtue cap of +10).
