The following items are on sale from January 4-10. Below you will find the sale listings as well as our recommendation on purchasing.
Free Sample of the Week
This appears to be a renaming of the Universal Healing Potion. The description in the store actually says it delivers a Universal Healing Potion.
It restores both morale and power based on your level and also provides a heal over time effect so it’s not a bad little item to keep on hand especially for free!
You can get one potion valued at 50 TP. Get yours for free this week with coupon code: MPRP13
Weekly Store Sale
Spending too much valuable time searching for miscellaneous crafting ingredients scattered throughout Middle-earth? Can’t locate a vendor? Take advantage of one stop shopping in the LOTRO Store and get back to crafting! Ingredient Packs are used in place of traditional ingredients, so stop the search and get to work on your recipes! Applies to Apprentice, Journeyman, Expert, Artisan, Master, Supreme and Westfold profession tiers.
Store Location: Crafting → Ingredient Packs
CSTM RECOMMENDATION: This is a short cut if your short on in-game cash or just really hate the idea of gathering materials yourself. The items you make will not be able to be traded or sold so if you plan to make something useful for others you will have to get real materials.
Crafting Guild Access
Improve your chosen profession by unlocking a Crafting Guild progression! Crafting Guilds provide additional paths of advancement for many professions. Membership in a crafting guild is exclusive – you may only be a member of one at a time. Available to Cook, Jeweller, Metalsmith, Scholar, Tailor, Weaponsmith, and Woodworker professions.
Store Location: Crafting → Guilds
Levels: Expert level crafting, or higher
CSTM RECOMMENDATION: Like the badge says this is free for VIPs. Purchasing will unlock the guild access for the account but you are only unlocking that particular profession’s guild access for the account (meaning you have to unlock the cook’s guild separately from the jeweler, etc). So only super useful if you plan to make a ton of metalsmiths which I suppose is entirely possible if you hop around on different servers. If interested in crafting and getting some the best recipes, this is a good purchase to pick up.
Scrolls of Craft Acceleration
Use a Scroll of Craft Acceleration to gain a bonus to experience earned from crafting! Affects all Cook, Jeweller, Metalsmith, Scholar, Tailor, Weaponsmith, and Woodworker recipes.
Store Location: Crafting → Craft Boosts
CSTM RECOMMENDATION: This is a way to skip the grind. It seems short being only 10 minutes but if you are fully stacked on material you can craft a whole lot of items in that time. It’s a meh as you of course could do this the slow and steady way. Note that this is only for the maker professions and not the gatherer professions of Forester or Prospector.
