Lord of the Rings Online plans two-month nostalgia hunt for 10th anniversary

Don’t expect the same-old fireworks display from Lord of the Rings Online as it hits its 10th birthday this month. Well, there will be fireworks, but more than that, too.

Today, Standing Stone Games announced a special two-month scavenger hunt that will kick off on April 20th and continue through June 13th with a trio of new quests every week. “Each quest brings us back to the places we have been, and gets us some cool stuff in the process,” the studio said.

Also coming this month is the anniversary fireworks event (see — we told you), a series of special videos with former LOTRO Composer Chance Thomas talking about his favorite pieces, and a 12-hour developer livestream. Presumably there will also be anniversary gifts and other promotional items, so keep your eyes peeled!

It’s great to see this title actually make it to 10 years. I and a lot of others I played with thought for sure it wouldnt make it. While we had great reasons to leave and still to this day never do business with Turbine/SSG, a part of me anyway is more than happy to be wrong.

For those still playing I hope you are having a blast.

“TEN YEARS, MAN! TEN!”

“I freaked out… I joined the fellowship… went into business for myself, I’m a professional Ringbearer!”

“…Okay, well… can I join up?”

“Yes!”

that $199 I spent for Lifetime back at launch in 2007 was the best money I’ve ever spent for almost anything LOL.

Well, I’m the opposite. I bought the lifetime sub in 2008 and regretted it about a month later.

Every year or so I give it a another try, but slop playing in the mid 60s. The game is just such a slog to play, with slow leveling, combat (at least post 50) where you are constantly stunned, knocked around, disarmed, or otherwise somehow impaired that makes combat last 3x as long as it should.

So then you should sell that lifetime to me. I’ll gladly take that.

My brother was the same way. After the dev said monster play would never be anything more than a sideshow. Was he pissed. I laughed.

These devs did squander what would have been the biggest draw to the game and wasted it. And broke canon so many times.

One small bite is enough to give a man his daily sodium intake for the entire day!

Eleven years for me. It has truly been a long road for me.
