Hi all,

I played LOTRO years ago when Codemasters were in charge of the UK release. I cannot seem to access my old account from 2008/9 so I have resigned myself to setting up a new account.

My question is - what is the best way to start playing from scratch with the new F2P and Expansion packs?!

I have seen digital downloads, free downloads, bonus packs, VIP subscriptions and the Mithril Edition sold via Amazon.

I am simply looking to get involved in the game and maybe have the riding ability. I never multi-character. I just have one character and stick with it, probably Hunter class.

Any advice appreciated. I have enough disposable income to buy items etc.

What I don't want to do is miss out on some sort of megapack or bonus stack which costs a fortune separately.

Thanks guys.
