Release notes, Dev-Diaries, Lorebook releases, Feature Articles

These pages:
are an attempt to collate various Turbine resources into some sort of chronological order, as well as tying them to Release names and dates. I don't guarantee everything is exactly right, but it should be close. Close enough to find things.

A list of assorted release related dates and other links.  Created mostly to provide a chronological list of them as well as correlation to their major releases, and a link to their Lorebook entries.

Mainly because until Update 5.1, turbine was still not being logical with things. and the Lorebook did not date their pages :(

Note: The Lorebook and data.lotro.com were terminated with the Revision to the Forums in July of 2013. All content hosted there is now "history!" Lorebook release category

  • In December 2016, Standing Stone Games acquired both LOTRO and DDO from Turbine.

Release Notes and Patch Notes

This table cross indexes Release Notes found on LOTRO-Wiki and the Lorebook with Turbine's Official Release notes - names and dates -- in chronological order. Turbine's naming conventions have changed over time. This table is an attempt to make order out of the fact that WIKIs have a bad habit of simply sorting things by lexical order, consequently things like, "Patch," "Release," "Book" and "Update" don't show up where they should.

Hopefully this has changed, according to: Update 5.1 Update_5.1_-_January_17,_2012 http://lorebook.lotro.com/wiki/Update_5.1,_Official

"Patches will now be a point release. Example: Instead of Update 5, Patch 1, this , Update 5.1."

  • "Updates" are since the introduction "Free to Play"
  • Note: many embedded links to Forum Posts, especially older ones, are, sadly, no longer valid - for a variety of reasons.

2017 4 August Hotfix to correct an issue with Aria of the Valar delivery. Thank you for your patience.

For people missing their Arias of the Valar: Once we re-open the worlds following the hotfix, the Aria of the Valar will be delivered to the first character you log into that has the Novice characteristic. So, it does not matter which character you logged into on Wednesday; the item will be delivered to your first qualified character you log into AFTER tomorrow’s fix. Please make sure you log into the server you intend to use the Aria of the Valar on. The Aria of the Valar is Bound to Account until opened, at which point the item becomes Bound to Character.
