    Confusion on Swift Travel

    Okay just to start off, I've actually been playing for a year or so now, but I don't exactly know where to post this, I don't even know if it's been answered already so I apologize beforehand. Anyway, back in February 2012, I first started playing as a VIP for about a month, then my account turned Premium, as it should. Now I know very well that only the characters that I made during my time as VIP get access to swift travel routes. But there's an option in the store to buy swift travel, so shouldn't I be able to buy it? Or was that taken out? I can't seem to find any kind of information on it, in the store or on these forums. But it makes no sense that I shouldn't have access to buy it, if it's there. Can anyone point me in the right direction here, still just noob here, trying to make her way in the LOTRO world/forums Thanks all.

    I think they took out the swift travel stuff from the store when they introduced Mithril Coins.

    Instead, you just pay a coin a trip.

    (TBH, I don't know how it works as a premium player, being a lifetimer, but I have accidentally spent Mithril coins on swift travel)

    I thought you had to do at least 20 quests in a zone to unlock swift travel.

    Okay, thanks. I figured that they'd do something like that :/ just my luck? I cannot really afford to pay at least 50 turbine points a day, 7 days a week, etc. So I guess I'll just have to start hitchhiking

    Some routes are gated by requirements such as this but not all.

    There is usually a non-swift travel route that duplicates the swift one, so you'll just have to admire the scenery.

    The character you logged in with while VIP *will* have access to those swift travel routes, once you meet any other requirements for them.

    Note: the old swift-travel unlocks were also time-restricted (think one hour/day/week/month), there was never a permanent swift-travel unlock in the store.
