Character Portrait Frames

Jump to navigation Jump to search

Starting with the LOTRO Anniversary Celebration 2012, players can use custom character portrait frames which change the border around your character portrait in your vitals UI element similar to how the border around creature frames change. Your currently selected frame is visible to other players when you are targeted by them and when grouped in a fellowship.

Anniversary frames are automatically made available to VIP and Premium players during the LOTRO Anniversary Celebration. The year reward is based on your account status.

To change between available frames on a character:

  1. Right click character portrait in Vitals UI element
  2. Mouse over Custom Character Portraits
  3. Click to select your desired frame
