The Lord of the Rings Online: Mithril Edition
I bought this edition because it was a good deal. In the Lotro store you have to buy Moria seperately and points and steed - It took me 3 days to get it downloaded and then no points and no steed - hard time in Moria!
Best MMO I Have Ever PLAYED!!!!!
BUY THIS GAME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! BECAUSE IT IS THE BEST GAME FOR EVERYONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This is A Great Deal
An account wide steed, 2000 Turbine Points, and the Fellowship quests all for a really low price ( 9.99 on sale ), how can you go wrong. Just logged in to my Turbine account ( I already have the FTP game installed) , entered the code and you are good to go. 2000 TP's and an account wide horse which will save you lots of future TP's. Grab it.
Game worth buying!
If you want an awsome mmog this is the game for you!It has a awsome story guidline and chapter quests you can follow. the graphics are amazing for the time that this game was made and still outpass a lot of games ive seen!Well worth the $20
A Fantastic MMO for any fan of the series!
For me, MMOs are definitely not my favorite type of game. I'm typically a sucker for RPGs and action games that have a good story to them. When i saw that Lord of the Rings online was free to play, I thought that I should give it a chance since I could follow the story. It was really the best MMO I have ever played, and that includes WOW, League of Legends, and countless free to play MMORPGs (however I still want to play Star Wars old republic)! It was a story that I actually liked and was able to follow with gameplay that wasn't irritating. A lot of MMOs out there have very confusing gameplay with too many different attacks and abilities to manage with various effects, cool downs, and cast times that just are too much to remember off of a small icon. With LOTRO there are a manageable number of attacks and powers too keep track of, and are also easy to upgrade so you don't have an overwhelming amount of icons at the bottom of the game screen.
Seamless,detailed,and story driven!
I have to tell you, i been around when it comes to MMO's i started in 2003 with EQOA for ps2. since then i have tried easily over 100 mmo's most of which were free to play garbage. There is a massive market out there now for these games. Back in the day your choices were quite limited, that being said. Lotro is a shining beacon of hope in the cold,long dark of F2P games! This is easily the best free to play game The only reason the graphics got a 9, is because the character models are lacking a bit. I mean they just don't look as good as they should given the environment and lighting, not a big deal just takes away from it very slightly. The restrictions are the least intense ive ever seen! You can go anywhere without paying a single dime! The cash shop that is in place, server for mostly cosmetics, nothing to give others a edge over you. I got mithril edition and dropped 20$ on points to make for 3600 points and i got most of the content i was lacking! Quests, extra bag slots, and some cosmetics. There is little to no loading in this game, you can ride from one end of the map to the other with only a very mild zone load between the MASSIVE zones. Even if your not a fan of lotr, this game has something for everyone! Running around the shire doing quests and taking in the scenery.... just get this game dudes! it's epic! trust me! lol. oh and btw, the 2k points you get pay for this edition and then some! this is a STEAL!
Don't waste your time!
The Lord of the Rings Online: Mithril Edition is no more than a goodie bag for those that have paid accounts. in order to even use the keycode that comes with your purchace they veryify that you have a paid account, otherwise they tell you "Sorry, in order to use this keycode you need to have a payment method on file" All you get is the basic game client and some extra quests, and a mount you can't use unless you have the level and skill to use them, and if you have not bought them you're locked out of them until then.
An immersive, creative MMORPG
If you've just started playing LotRO, or are thinking about getting into it, buy this Mythril Edition. The price makes it a steal for all the quest content, Turbine Points, and other goodies it includes.
I'm a pretty hard sell when it comes to MMOs, but Lord of the Rings Online has managed to maintain my interest. Folks who are really into Tolkien's lore will absolutely adore the game's storyline and consistency, but newbies to the Lord of the Rings - like myself - will find it easy to dive into and a lot of fun once you do.
There is an in-game store, but it's not a cash shop: the items sold are mostly aesthetic, and are reasonably priced besides. There are also plenty of opportunities to get your hands on store content besides paying for it: the game includes methods of gaining store currency as you play as well as offering packages like this one, where you get a ridiculous amount of content for about a third of the price.
LOTRO is an AMAZING game, however, i never recieded my pre-order bonus. If you still think its a good deal for you, feel free to order it is still a dixcount from buying pure TP.
Prohibitive for international players
Well, I tried to buy the Mithril Edition. I was really excited, the game is great after all. But this sale is awful for those who not reside in United States. I am really surprised that besides the 29.99 U$, I have to pay more 59.99 U$ for shipping. What i really want is the game benefits, not paying 90 U$ for something I'll only use online. Gamestop should think about it's international customers to-be, since the money from those outside US has the same monetary value.
