Hmm ... to Buy or Not to Buy...

There's a pay update coming out for Lord of the Rings Online, which adds Moria to the game. As a lifetime subscriber, I get some variety of special deal on a pre-order, but I haven't yet worked out exactly what the deal is.

Thing is, aside from a little noodling around this week to scratch the "Wanna be a player!" itch, I haven't actually done anything with LotRO since January or so ... when I have too many errands to run in real life, I don't exactly feel like collecting virtual wolf pelts in a fantasy world, knowwhutImean?

I guess I'll have to see what the pricing actually turns out to be. I'm certainly not going to shell out another $200 for a second "lifetime" membership just to add Moria and +10 levels. But if it's a reasonable price, I might. For when I want to noodle around with balrogs. ;P

if it's anything like how WoW works, it won't be a separate subscription, but more like a one-time purchase of the disc (or download) with the new content, and your monthly subscription will cover what you do there, as well.

The way I read it, you can online-update for 29.95, which is just the software, nothing physical. Plus you get a few in-game goodies (cloak, name,few items).

The other 2 pre-order specials gets you 1) the complete edition of LOTRO+Mines, along with some maps and baubles :) 2) the physical edition of Mines including 22x22" map, a gold plated One Ring to Rule Them All, figurine, etc.

Then you can also choose whether or not to upgrade your subscription rates to monthly/quarterly/yearly/lifetime.

IIRC...going to check now
