Today is the day the servers are all prepped for the big launch of Rise of Isengard for us to enjoy.
From the LOTRO Launcher:
In preparation for the release of our newest expansion, Rise of Isengard™, we’ll be taking the game servers down early in the morning on Monday, September 26. We currently anticipate that the servers will be up and available to players later the same day!
We should be able to start patching later today but what to do in the meantime? I have found some assorted links for you to read and enjoy to help you pass at least some of the time and still keep you psyched for the release!
