10th Anniversary Celebrations

A Time to Celebrate!

"Looking in a mirror he was startled to see a much thinner reflection of himself than he remembered: it looked remarkably like the young nephew of Bilbo who used to go tramping with his uncle in the Shire; but the eyes looked out at him thoughtfully. 'Yes, you have seen a thing or two since you last peeped out of a looking-glass,' he said to his reflection. 'But now for a merry meeting!'"

JRR Tolkien, The Lord of the Rings, 1954-1955

For ten years we have had the honor of bringing you the timeless world of Middle-earth. That's right: we can hardly believe it ourselves, but this April is LOTRO's 10th anniversary! We will be updating this page as the month goes on with all the news and events that will be going on to mark this momentous occasion!

As always, thank you for being amazing Citizens of Middle-earth! Here's to yesterday, today, and the future of LOTRO!

Chance Thomas Reminisces

We all know Composer, Chance Thomas, and the remarkable work that he's brought to the world of LOTRO. His soundtrack is as legendary as the tale it helps to tell. He's been kind enough to pick some of his favorite pieces from our history and give us some of his memories about working on, presenting, and composing them. Starting April 15th we'll be posting a video a day to our YouTube channel for you to listen to and enjoy well into the future!

Anniversary Event

Scavenger Hunt

Starting on April 20th enjoy our annual Anniversary Event with expanded fireworks at the party tree (seriously, you have to see these!), quests, events and more! Learn more about the event here.

A new event for 2017! Lasting from April 20th – July 13th, every week you'll unlock three new quests. Each quest brings us back to the places we have been, and gets us some cool stuff in the process.

To start, visit Mr. Waldo Rumble at the party tree in Hobbiton!


"Often long after the hobbits were wrapped in sleep they would sit together under the stars, recalling the ages that were gone and all their joys and labours in the world, or holding council, concerning the days to come."

JRR Tolkien, The Lord of the Rings, 1954-1955
