Update: It’s Wednesday.

Saddle up and ride for the horse kingdom: Riders of Rohan is coming to Lord of the Rings Online’s progression servers this week.

Standing Stone Games gave its community a heads-up this weekend on the upcoming unlock. Riders of Rohan originally came out in 2012 and added six new regions, increased the level cap to 85, and introduced war-steeds and mounted combat into the MMO.

The studio also hinted at an incoming gift for progression players: “We’ll also have more later this week on a special cosmetic item players can get for logging into Anor or Ithil.”

Last week, the live servers pushed out Update 25.3.2, which mainly made some adjustments to two of the new dungeons.

I got into the progression servers when they opened but the rapid release schedule ended up putting people off and many including myself decided not to continue . It seems standing stone realized this was an issue and backtracked on the that . Unfortunately the damage was done and the progression servers are no longer busy .

Rohan is stupidly big. I remember seeming to spend more time there than any other expansion. The Book quests involving Nurzum were really good.

I’ve recently gone back and thought about doing the legendary servers, but they are just not what I want. The SLOWtro style of kinships was also not what I wanted so I created a kinship that is for characters to replay the older content, but we leave level-locked characters at 50/60/65/70 etc so as people join and want to replay those older areas, we can do them on-level. So far we’re at the 50 stage and starting Carn Dum and hoping to do The Rift soon. Many people have joined and love the idea of the kin so there’s definitely a niche for it.

I tend to play lotro (not progression) in between other games and my Burg is currently in Rohan. Every time I go back there I gave forgotten how to ride and I really suck … then I go back and play a lower lvl character.

I know it is not coming right away with Rohan, but the part of this I am looking forward to is the new housing. I really hope it showcases some of the best of the building styles from the expansion. I know it won’t go so far as to be the Hytbold-like housing I dreamed of back at the original Rohan launch, but even so it has the potential to be more interesting than the premium Gondorian mausoleums. :)

Really wish they would let us have our horses there on display, even if you cannot interact with them, would be cool to have a stable with a few of your horses there.

Thanks Justin for continuing to cover Lord of the Rings Online. It’s a solid old mmo and I wish them all the best!

Oh, and I simply love the title, “Riders of Rohan”!
