Featured Instances were added with Update 18 and are available to players with characters of level 100 and above.
Every week, changing at Monday 10:00 am /servertime (Eastern time zone), a specific scaling instance (or raid) from LOTRO's old favorites is featured in the Instance Join panel. Characters level 100 and higher can launch it through the Instance Join panel Specific Tab.
Each instance can be run daily at level 100-129 and at level 130.
In addition to the regular loot from the instance chests (such as a chance for remembrance crystals, star-lit crystals, relics and fixed-stat scaled gear), each of the two runs has a specific featured quest associated with the instance, one for level 100-129, and another for level 130. The instance must be run no more than eight levels below the level of your character to obtain the featured instance quest (i.e. the mobs in the instance must not be grey).
Completing the quest will award extra rewards for completing the listed instance, resetting daily at 03:00 am /servertime. (The quests can additionally be reset with Mithril Coin, as well.)
Update 22.2 introduced featured instance challenges whereby players earn Newfound Coins by completing the challenge quests for the week's featured instance. These coins can be bartered at a Quartermaster (Featured Challenge Rewards Vendor) for armour pieces and cosmetics.
