LOTRO posts April event schedule, makes temporary store change

As Lord of the Rings Online players wrap up the spring festival this week, they won’t have much time to breathe before the next round of events arrive.

The game’s event schedule has been updated to include all of the happenings for this month. This includes Hobnanigans (April 6th), VIP event boost (April 13th), and the 10th anniversary (April 20th). The schedule doesn’t reveal everything, according to CM Cordovan, who teased that “there’s a specific 10th anniversary-related event that is not yet on the calendar.”

LOTRO and DDO players might have noticed that the in-game store isn’t so much “in-game” as of right now. Accessing the store now takes you to an external browser link to conduct your shady business. According to Standing Stone, this is because the team is working to resolve a tech issue with the store.

Lol @ “shady business”. I hope they get the store fixed soon because we’re having issues in our household with accessing it from one of our computers. Spring is always a busy time in Lotro. Anniversary is on 4/20 for you Hobbit farmers to take note of.

Aren’t cash shops always kind of a “Shady business”? ;)

Sometimes. However not so much in lotro & ddo due to the fact you earn store credits by playing the games and completing achievements aka deeds.

Yeah, it’s one of the better models out there.

I’m pretty familiar.

It was a jab at the newfound prevalence of cash shops in the industry, not at LOTRO specifically.
