Summer Festival Extended
Due to the unexpected connection outages that some LOTRO players experienced over the weekend, Turbine is extending the LOTRO Summer Festival though to next Monday to give those who needed some time to collect tokens to buy up the goodies they want before the festival shuts down for the year.

Summer Festival Extended!
Tue, 06 Aug 2013 16:29:23 +0000
We have extended the Summer Festival! You may now enjoy the festival through Monday August 12. We are also increasing the drop rate of loot boxes throughout the world this weekend from Friday August 9 – Sunday August 11. Enjoy!
Our Festival Guide is still up and can helpful for those wanting in to jump in last minute and gather up some festival rewards!
Loot Box Weekend
We also will be getting a Loot Box Weekend that starts on Friday. What it means is they are increasing the drop rate for the loot boxes and their keys.
Loot boxes can contain a varied assortment of goodies within them.
We assume the increase is across the board meaning the Monster Players will also see an increased drop rate for the sigils of battle they are looking for the special creep looks.
Horse collectors will be interested in the opportunity for the Marrow Painted Steed with loot boxes.
