March 7, 2013

LOTRO Store

sos_ph0307_en

The following items are on sale from March 8 – 14. Below you will find the sale listings as well as our recommendation on purchasing.

Free Sample of the Week

Renown is like the experience Free People’s earn to rank up in the Ettenmoors and Infamy is the Monster Player’s version of the experience. Basically these equate to an experience boost if playing in the rest of Middle-earth. These are great, provided there’s plenty of things around to kill! You’ll have to log in and use the coupons separately for the freep and creep you wish to obtain the items.

Renown Coupon: CRUSH2
Infamy Coupon: CRUSH3

Weekly Sale

Store Location: Account → Classes
Levels: 10+
795
517

CSTM RECOMMENDATION: Extra classes add diversity to game play and so picking up a new class or two while on sale seems like a good idea to me. If one of the other monster classes had you wondering, this may be the time to try it out!


Monster Traits

Enhance your abilities and stats with traits from the LOTRO Store. Then visit your Monster Class bard to slot your new traits.
• All monster classes can update class and racial traits in the store.
• Customize your character for how you play!

Store Location: Character → Monster Play → Class Traits
Levels: 10+
195-595
126-386

CSTM RECOMMENDATION: I don’t regularly play a monster class but I’m told the ranking up of a monster to get the traits is time consuming. This allows you to buy the traits you need to survive and even conqueror those nasty free peoples without the wait. You can earn these in game but the time saved in earning will most likely pay off in a much more enjoyable moors experience from the start.


Monster Skills

Upgrade your skills to do more damage, protect your raid group, control more targets, and cause more carnage!
• Upon purchase, skills are immediately usable.
• Get access to better traits, faster!

Store Location: Character → Monster Play → Class Skills
Levels: 10+
395-695
256-386

CSTM RECOMMENDATION: Similar to the monster traits, the ability to buy the skills for ranks that hare higher and will take you some serious time to achieve will only benefit the monster. LOTRO Fanatik wrote to us in a previous monster sale that “Buying the most useful and powerful skills/traits for Ranks you might never see otherwise, is a great alternative to grinding out the millions (yes MILLIONS!) of infamy that’s needed for those high ranks.”


Milestone Skills

Set multiple instant-travel destinations! Unlock an additional destination skill to bind at Milestones. 5 additions available! Milestones, or "homes", are locations that you can instantly travel to from anywhere in the world. Players can bind to one destination at a time for free, and purchasing additional Milestone Skills allows players to access more than one destination at a moment’s notice!

Store Location: Travel & Housing → Maps & Skills → Milestone Skills
Levels: All
350
227

CSTM RECOMMENDATION: Typically I hear that folks like to have at least two. One for where they are questing and one for where they craft. Any more needed beyond that will be something special for your needs. These are per character and they share a cooldown so don’t expect to be zipping around like a hunter if you buy these.


Hurried Traveler

Reduce the recovery time (cool-downs) on Milestone Skills by 30 minutes to use instant-travel more often! Works across all Milestone skills! This is a permanent unlock for your character.

Store Location: Travel & Housing → Travel Traits
Levels: All
495
322

CSTM RECOMMENDATION: It gets a meh only because it depends on your play style (how much you use milestones or if you’re a hunter/warden) how useful this is. The only bummer for this item is that is it only per character so make sure you buy it on the character you want to have this skill!

    Didn’t they just run a sale on creeps pretty recently?

    Ooo, really? The milestone skills are per character? I had been mulling getting another but I thought they were per account. As the immortal Emily Litella said: “Never mind.”

    I just bought the Forochel area last night, so I was half-expecting to see it on sale today. The only one I’m missing now is Enedwaith.

      Be sure to snap up Enedwaith sometime. It includes many instances that were scaled with U10 (lvl 65+). It’s a pretty good value for a non-expansion zone.

      2 x 3 mans
      2 x 6 mans
      1 x 12 man raid

    If Milestone skills and hurried traveller became accountwide I would buy them in a heartbeat … Just saying.

    Figures. I just bought a milestone right before the sale. It happens every time. Like washing the car right before it rains.

    Siqua, I hate when that happens !! That happened to me on Illyriad once, bought a bunch of prestige and it went on sale the next day :(
    I can’t even play LOTRO, unfortunately. I want to, worse than anything, and I have an account, but my pc shuts down every time I play, like one minute into the game.

      I had that issue with my PC after ROR came out. I would like to get a new system but am holding off. How I got it to work again was to set my graphics to low. Since then it hasn’t crashed once. Good luck.

    I went ahead & bought an extra milestone on everyone but my Hunter (don’t see a reason to with him). I had the points just sitting there so I might as well use them for something constructive.
