April is a big celebration month for LOTRO! This month marks 5 years of playing online in Middle-earth! To celebrate, Turbine is having special sales each weekend in addition to the weekly sale.
These items are more than the typical 20% off making these very appealing!
This listing is valid until April 15, 2012. Check out what’s on sale this weekend below plus our advice on whether to buy.
Fire massive and deadly arrow types from range!
Heal Evil forces or disable Free Peoples with deadly plagues!
Strike stealthily, silently, and suddenly!
Rally your troops, heal your allies, and absorb incoming damage!
Use poisons and webs to manipulate and control prey!
Store Location: Account → Classes
CSTM RECOMMENDATION: Extra classes add diversity to game play and so picking up a new class or two while one sale seems like a good idea to me. If one of the other monster classes had you wondering, this may be the time to try it out!
Tomes Of Agility
Trolls pounding you into submission? Friends defeated because you can’t heal them fast enough? Then it may be time to upgrade your character’s Agility stats!
- Do more ranged attack damage
- Evade and parry enemy attacks
- Increase your chance to crit and hit enemies
- Recommended for: Burglars & Hunters
Store Location: Character → Stats
CSTM RECOMMENDATION: Stat tomes are typically a hot item and with stat caps removed, this may be of interest to more than the core will users depending on how you plan to build your character.
These tomes can drop in game but they seem to be a bit on the rare-ish side. But it is an in-game option if you want to check the Auction House first.
The tomes are a consumable put into the pack of the character that purchased it. You have to use them in order. You cannot accidently buy the wrong one in the LOTRO Store as they only show you the tier you haven’t used but this is important if one dropped for you or if you purchased one off the AH.
Scroll of Combination
When used, this scroll increases your ‘Critical Success’ chance to 25% while combining relics at the relic forge. Works when forging relics of tiers 2 through 7. Lasts for 15 minutes.
Store Location: Goods & Services → Legendary Items → Scrolls
CSTM RECOMMENDATION: If you are planning on crafting a really critical relic I suppose you may find these very interesting but at $5 for 15 minutes (and that’s the sale price!) I personally will be passing on these. They aren’t necessary and that’s why they get the “meh” rating.
