  • I believe it will be available in the store, though I don't know the details on pricing or dates of availability.
  • The package itself is very similar to the previous Valar package, but it's updated to level 105, with new teleport destinations putting you on the border of Mordor and has a full outfit of level 105 appropriate gear that is sufficient for a player to engage immediately with Mordor content.

Miscellaneous

  • For those who are Lifetime account holders, the VIP codes from the Ultimate Fan Bundle can be given to someone to use. They are NOT bound to your account.

  • There will not be any Lotro points included with the expansion, however, there are plans for double bonus Lotro Points in the future.
