LOTRO invites all to enjoy the warmth of its Yule Festival

    
25

Middle-earth’s Winter-home is once again open for merriment and questing, as Lord of the Rings Online has brought back its Yule Festival for another year. Of course, when it comes to Hobbits, any day of the year is a good time for merriment and munchies, but at least there’s a good reason for it now.

The Yule Festival will run through January 10th and includes such holiday staples as the interactive theater event, the snowball fight, the eating contest, and a special quest that has two different endings. There’s a new Steed of Winter Winds mount to earn this year as well as warsteed appearance gear and cosmetics.

Karl_Hungus Zariarn Actually Christmas was created to offset the pagan holidays like Saturnalia.  I’m well aware that no-one actually knows the legitimate date of Jesus’ birth.  Regardless, Christians celebrate it on December 25.(nothing wrong with that)  It’s not Saturnalia nor is it yule, to a christian, it’s Christmas.  If they want to celebrate it, let them.  They’re not stealing anyone’s saturnalia or yule holiday. 
It’s the same reason many christian churches don’t celebrate Halloween.  They generally offer a festival similar to halloween to offset the evil nature halloween brings.

I think this is my favorite of all the MMO holiday events. A Yule-themed zone with more than just a simplistic merry message, but handled in a thoughtful manner.

Plus it involves eating until you can barely see or move, so it mirrors how most people celebrate the holidays. :)

Turbine:
1) Made me wait X weeks to transfer my characters off an empty server.
2) Took two weeks to remove a stolen credit card from my account.
3) Will not accept my new CC (as far as VIP goes)

4) Will not accept PayPal at all. (as far as VIP goes) 

So if they don’t want my money, I don’t want their game and they get coal in their stockings.

Cere Also, there are sales fairly frequently on everything (expansions, quest packs, etc) so it pays to be patient.  I recently got the quad pack for $5, Helm’s Deep for $10, and a couple of packs on the side that netted me 1000tp and a bunch of other stuff (including a mount, currency cap removal, the Evendim quest pack, mount training for all characters, and a bunch of boosts and cosmetic stuff) for less than $5.

Cere Turbine’s account system website is straight out of the 90s, I don’t blame you for not understanding it.
You know you need to email them to ask to put DDO and Lotro on the same account. Talk about backwards.

Actually, no. Every single Christmas tradition is directly lifted from another religion. If you did literally any research at all on the matter, you’d know what everyone else does, including Biblical scholars.

Cere An Overabundance of Cats VIP (subscriber) access gives you access to the packs, and once you fall back to Premium access, you retain access to any packs you’ve explicitly purchased, either via quest packs or expansions.

I play through Steam purchases are tied to the Turbine account. Expansion and other packages purchased via Steam are added to your Turbine account (there’s a simple process involving a key). Many things can also be purchased via the Turbine store using TP.
