The following items are on sale from September 21-27th. Below you will find the sale listings as well as our recommendation on purchasing.
Free Sample of the Week
This is for a single (not the five stack) mount speed boost. We’ve heard these are useful for free players in the Ettenmoors for quick getaways from pesky creeps. If they’re good for anything else, I am not aware of it but hey, it’s free! Pick it up for free with coupon code MSB912.
Limited Release: Helegrod Cosmetic Gear
Now until October 4th you can pick up Helegrod raid cosmetic armor in the LOTRO store.
These items are not actual armor, just cosmetic versions of these sets to allow you to get the look.
Pieces sell for 295 Turbine Points each or 1,295 Turbine Points for a full set (6 pieces) which ends up to be around a 27% discount. There is a set available for each class but you don’t have to stick to your specific class when purchasing.
I think it’s probably also good to note that you can earn this gear in game should you and your friends venture into the Helegrod dungeons and they are available for purchase from Skirmish vendors.

This is what in-game is called a Scroll of Empowerment. There are different varieties in game based on the level of your Legendary Item but they are all named similar. For example a level 75 legendary item simply needs a Scroll of Greater Empowerment. These items are available in game from skirmish camps and barter tokens if you prefer to get it via an in-game method.

CSTM RECOMMENDATION: These are one of those convenience items that gives you a shortcut without the grind. These get a meh simply because it’s not necessary. You can get through the normal in-game methods.
