LOTRO Point

From Lotro-Wiki.com
Jump to: navigation, search

With the acquisition of LOTRO by Standing Stone Games (Standing Stones Games Announcement - December 2016) Turbine Points are being re-named "LOTRO Points."

LOTRO Point-icon.png Lotro Points are a way to obtain various content within the game using the ingame LOTRO Store -- from mounts, cosmetic items and buffs to quest and expansion packs.

Gaining LOTRO Points

Lotro Points (LP) can be obtained in several different ways:

  • Purchase Lotro Points using real money. (This purchase automatically reclassifies you as a Premium subscriber.)
This can be done in-game at the LOTRO Store, or at store.turbine.com when not in the game.
(Various payment methods can be used: Credit Card, Pay Pal and Steam currency.)
For current pricing see: Need Turbine Points? There are TWO ways to buy!
  • Lotro points may be acquired by redeeming "Point Cards" available from many different merchants.
  • Various "Game Cards" and retail "bundles" may also provide Lotro points.


NOTE: Lotro Points are a feature of the LOTRO Store. As such, they are not related to Game Servers, but rather to the store itself.

Hence, Lotro Points are available to the Account found at myaccount.turbine.com associated with the Userid and Password with which you use to log in to the game.
In other words, Lotro Points acquired by one character are available to ALL characters associated with the same account!
  • Be aware, however, that while the same Lotro Points are visible across servers, those items purchased from the store, while bound to an Account, are bound to specific servers!

Your Lotro Points are not held by Turbine. The Lotro Store is operated by a third party company called PlaySpan. (Owned by VISA Inc since March, 2011, PlaySpan processes transactions for online games and virtual goods sold on social networking websites.) Your Turbine Points are in your PlaySpan account. As a consequence, there is a short delay between earning Turbine Points in-game, such as for Deed completion, and having them available in the store, i.e. having the addition reported in-game in the LORO Store window. In approximately Septeber of 2015 the in-game store switched from PlaySpan to Xsola.

Lotro Point - Mithril Coin purchase rate

Many different goods and services are available in-game for Mithril Coins - especially the "travel to objective" button for quests.
  • One purchases Mithril Coins using Lotro Points in the LOTRO Store in-game.
  • Mithril Coins are tallied in your Wallet on Turbine Servers, as opposed to in the LOTRO Store at XSOLA (formerly PlaySpan).
  • Like Turbine Points, Mithril Coins are Account wide BY SERVER.

Item Points Points per coin
Mithril Coin-icon.png Mithril Coin x5 50 LOTRO Point  10
Mithril Coin x25 250 LOTRO Point  10
Mithril Coin x100 850 LOTRO Point  8.5
Mithril Coin x250 2000 LOTRO Point  8.0


The "value" of a Mithril Coin varies depending upon how the underling Lotro Points were acquired.
Based on the tables above Mithril Coins themselves "cost" between 10 and 8 Lotro Points each.
With PURCHASED Lotro Points costing between $0.01 and $0.013 (USD) that places the "value" of a Mithril Coin at between $0.08 and $0.13 (USD).
  • Most players simply assume one Mithril Coin to be worth $0.10 (USD).
