LOTRO brings back summer festival for a reprise, talks about getting a ‘breather’ from Mordor’s gloom
This reprise required a change to the planned dates for the Farmer’s Faire, which is now scheduled from August 23rd through September 8th. You can keep up on all of the small and large events on the official schedule.
If you’re making your way through the first zone of Mordor, you might want to keep The Bearded Minstrel’s visual guide at the ready. And don’t let the omnipresent gloom of the country get you down; the developers said that they crafted the allegiance system as a way to encourage day trips out of Mordor for a break.
“This is one of the reasons I wanted an early detour back to some of the older areas of Middle-earth early on in the Black Book,” writes MadeOfLions on the forums. “I thought it was important to get a breather from the darkness. Not everybody gets a total break, as some people go to Moria, but that was the spirit of the thing.”
