Thats called spending your monthly stipend of Turbine Points on. Considering that they don't need to use it to spend on quest packs.

I have got to say for this to be truly worth something it would have to include everything released up to but not including Rise of Isengard. If that is included that would be an extreme amount of content for $30. I feel that if it doesn't you are better off digging through the bargain bin at your local game store and buying a Moria box for $10 or less. ~ Bor

@borjason : indeed if you can find a Moria box for $10 or less it's a sweet deal. From what I hear, they're not exactly easy to find any more, though. None have been printed since before the F2P conversion, and a LOT of people have snapped up the ones floating around.

What is a keyboard map?

" What is a keyboard map? "

It's a piece of paper that tells you what keys do, like "W" move forward, "S" move backwards. Traditional boxes released this with their games to help people understand what keys to hit. Boxed game manuals started covering the keyboard information, so keyboard maps became a thing of the past. Nowadays you will probably find a keyboard map in a collector's edition, or the way Turbine is doing it now. If you look closely at the picture at the beginning of the article, you will see the keyboard map in between the box and the starter guide.

meh my question is what are they going to do to keep up with the features that other mmo's have made standard? AOE looting, and infinite size quest item only bag, dynamic housing, etc etc

"infinite size quest item only bag" is already part of lotro, items are placed in the quest window instead of in your bags. there are still some items like quest starters that go into your bag first.
Better housing would be nice, but it's not like too many games even have as much housing as lotro has.

2500 points cost 29.50 (with a bonus), you basically are getting what you pay for if you spend 29.99. As for $50 value, that's a good laugh, why do I need a game disc when I can download the game for free? The horse and bundled quest pack covering the Trollshaws, Eregion, Moria and Lothlorien, are mearly patch content. They basically took a proposed patch content idea and turned into a revitalized boxed copy.

If you normally spend money on Turbine points then you will probably love this deal, and players that have never experienced the game will get a fair deal for 29.99, so it's a "win win" for all the freemium junkies out there.

Got a friend to play this game with me, we started new champs but.. OMG this game is a ghost town. There is like one player perr 30 minutes to be seen n the starting areas (and its a high lvl player too). The server is Evernight. I guess this thing died completely. Last time i played was in march, there were at least a few more guys roaming around. Now..
