Last call for this horse! It is scheduled to leave the store after this Sunday!
Situated in a remote area of Eastern Rohan, the region of Wildermore has been hard hit by an unnatural and deadly winter. A Stone Giant named Nurzum, under the control of Saruman, is rumored as the source of this icy tragedy. Throughout Wildermore, villages have suffered ravage and townsfolk have become refugees. Follow in the chilly footsteps of evil as you attempt to restore this once thriving region.
Store Location: Account → Quest & Content → Quest Packs
CSTM RECOMMENDATION: Content on sale will almost always get a thumbs up. This is the new zone that just launched with Update 11 back in May. It is free to VIPs so if you subscribe you will not even find this item in the store. Everyone else who want to head into the newest of new content should seriously consider picking it up on sale!
Trolls pounding you into submission? Friends defeated because you can’t heal them fast enough? Then it may be time to upgrade your character’s Agility, Fate, Might, Vitality, or Will stats. Don’t worry, there are many easy ways to upgrade these stats! Level up your character. Get better gear by completing quests, crafting, and using the auction-house. Or use permanent stat boosting tomes that are dropped by enemies or purchased through the LOTRO Store. Food and drinks acquired in-game can also provide temporary boosts to your stats.
Store Location: Character → Stats
CSTM RECOMMENDATION: Stat tomes are always popular items especially when on sale. These tomes can drop in game but they seem to be a bit on the rare-ish side. But it is an in-game option if you want to check the Auction House first. Note that you cannot apply a tier 2 stat tome until you’ve applied a tier 1, etc.
We haven’t seen a sale on these since February so if you’re on the fence that might push you over into buying before it is nearly 4-5 months of seeing this on sale again!
Dusky Nimblefoot Goat
Store Location:Travel & Housing → Mounts → Standard
Allows you to summon a trusty Goat to ride throughout Middle-earth!
- Can be used in Moria
- *Travel 62% faster!
CSTM RECOMMENDATION: I own one of these from the Mirkwood expansion pack and it was nice so all my characters has something to ride in Moria but my personal opinion is this is no way worth even the sale price tag. It’s got really really low health and if a goblin so much as sneers menacingly at you, you will be off the goat and walking. You will get a free slower speed goat when you enter Moria so you won’t be without any ride when you start out. There are reputation goats you can earn in game before reaching Moria such as the Thorin’s Hall reputation goat or the Ale Association Goat that is available during festivals (Treasure Hunt event doesn’t include the Ale Association).
Store Location:Buffs & Boosts → Advancement → XP
Double all Monster kill XP, Quest XP, War-steed XP, and Legendary Item XP for 1 hour! By using this item, players will receive a 100% bonus to experience earned from killing monsters and completing quests.
CSTM RECOMMENDATION: This item is situational and as you need it. I give it a “Meh” as there’s no real reason to rush through content. I don’t have anything against them or those who choose to use them but there really is no reason to race to the end of LOTRO like in other games.
