LOTRO players uncover secret anniversary quest

While Lord of the Rings Online’s anniversary began back in April, it is only now coming to completion with this week’s addition of the Year 10 scavenger hunt cards. However, the lengthy event has one hidden and surprising conclusion that players have only now discovered.

You see, for each of the 10 weeks, the anniversary quests have been rewarding players with seemingly worthless scraps of paper (in addition to other, more fun goodies). One each of these pieces of paper was a tiny bit of information that, when collected and combined, revealed map coordinates.

Players used these coordinates on different zones in the game to discover that in Bree-land there is a mysterious new pillar in the middle of a lake that looks suspiciously like Standing Stone Games’ logo. Lo and behold, the giant stone even grants a quest that has a final reward for anniversary adventurers. We’ve hidden the spoilers to this quest below if you need a hand!

Anyone know what level the quest is for?

I believe you have to be pretty high level to complete the main anniversary quests and therefore qualify for this one. From memory (which is failing more often than it used to due to old age!) I think you have no chance below level 85 but I stand to be corrected on that. There’s a problem as I recall in that you can get pretty far through the anniversary quests before you come up against a level-based proverbial brick wall.

Given the triviality of the quest solution, I’d also be interested in knowing (within the spoiler) what the reward is because it may not even be worth the effort. Reading the article I was building myself up to expect a much more impressive quest than the spoiler reveals it to be.
