PSA: OK procrastinators, you’re running out of time to get your free LOTRO and DDO stuff

Last spring, when the pandemic was ramping up here in the US and states were closing down everything in a panic, MMO studios around the world responded by throwing open their virtual doors and offering respite. One of them was Standing Stone Games, which made a huge chunk of content in Lord of the Rings Online and Dungeons and Dragons Online freely accessible. It proved so successful for attracting players that the company extended the promotion, and then this summer it handed out coupon codes that would unlock said content for free permanently. Peeeeeerrrrrrmanently.

There’s a catch, though: The coupons expire at the end of August, meaning you have just a few more days to actually take care of it and secure your free stuff.

For LOTRO, the code is LOTROFREEQUESTS, and it unlocks 23 quest and region packs. You can also pick up seven more expansion quest packs and instance clusters for a handful of points in the cash-shop, which is worth it if you know you need to level up through the middle of the levelbands from Moria to Rohan.

For DDO, the code is DDOfreequests; it unlocks 46 quest packs, with a couple more on sale for 99 DDO points.

You do need to download the clients and apply the codes in the cash shops inside the games, not just the website or launchers, so give yourself enough time to actually get the games set up. The very last day is August 31st, so please grab it while you can. All SSG has to do is keep those servers up!

Lotro is solid I guess. DDO is just so damn ugly. Like, EQ2 ugly. I’m sure it has some cool things in it but I just can’t lol

As other people have mentioned, the DDO launcher can be a bit… temperamental. In order to get it working on my laptop I had to go the Microsoft site and download a bunch of specific antiquated installs, then go to the game’s folders to run the installer direct from an .exe file.

Yeah, I normally go download a specific set of games on Steam that I know use the same dependencies, which is ridiculous but true.

Used it, sadly the lagging kinda took the winds out of my sails.

It’s weird on my DDO account someone added 30 days of gametime and it wasn’t me. Also in the store it says I can buy Menace of the Underdark quests and Shadowfell conspiracy but I have already bought those expansions. Hopefully just a quirk.

I suspect they may have had to bypass the usual blocking of content you already have so people would be able to take advantage of the 99 point deals. Hopefully that is all it is.

That happened to me as well – I think they gave away a universal 30 day subscription. I assumed it was because my avatars are all on Wayfinder, which had the recent three week experience loss.

If you think you will want to try either game, even if not right away, you need to install these and pop that code in. Well worth it. They each have some extra content for 99 point-coin-bucks each (basically a dollar) as well.

If only their installers worked. And, ya know, if only their servers worked.

Remember, DDO launcher takes forever to download/install.

LOTRO is always a solid game to return to when I need a refresher or have time to kill. I’ve never found a decent community to be a part of – though I never really made a large attempt to do so. The people I’ve come across were always super helpful though!

Will have to fire up my account and take advantage of this – thanks for the reminder!
