    VIP but doesn't have full access??

    I'm a subscriber/VIP but know that I've reached Moria I still have to buy access to do the quests there?
    I thought the VIP status gave me full access. Is there no way to avoid having to buy access to regions?? Feeling ripped off

    Expansion packs have always been an additional cost for everyone, VIP or not.

    • The Mines of Moria
    • Siege of Mirkwood
    • Rise of Isengard
    • Riders of Rohan
    • Helm's Deep (November 18 of this year)


    are all expansion packs and require an additional purchase.

    VIP gives you rental access to all non expansion content. All customers have to buy access to:

    1) Mines of Moria - Moria
    2) Siege of Mirkwood - Mirkwood
    3) Rise of Isengard
    4) Riders of Rohan
    5) Helms Deep when it releases.

    Being a subscriber gives you rental access to Angmar, Endewaith, Evendim, Eregion, Forochel, Great River, Lothlorien, North Downs, Misty Mountains, Trollshaws and Wildermore. Hopefully I did not forget any rental regions.
    Unless stated otherwise, all content in this post is My Personal Opinion.

    On a page like:
    https://www.lotro.com/en/game/vip
    which explains the VIP offer. You need to read the entire page. Especially the:

    stuff in the foot note at the end that is often called the terms, conditions and limitation.

    As a LTS, I always keep up on my expansions, so never had to play catch-up on obtaining previous content, but this makes me curious: Is each new expansion pack inclusive of previous expansions? Or would a new account have to buy each previous expansion separately? (I'm not really sure how the F2P/VIP access to content works, since I've never had to deal with it.)

    The Everquest franchises are inclusive, but WoW requires buying previous expansions, unless they changed that with their last expac. I've never heard about LOTRO though, would be handy to know if any friends want to come and play.

    LOTRO is not inclusive, but they are usually deals at various times. For example, at the moment I believe the Quad Pack (4 pre-HD expansions) is available for $10 on checkout when you buy HD digitally.

    Also, pre-F2P past expansions were offered as sweeteners for subscription deals. For example, I got both Mines of Moria and Mirkwood at different times just for buying a 3 month sub. Obviously that was a different business model though, and so, offered different incentives.

    You have to buy each expansion. Right now they offer the first four for $39.99 in a package deal, I think. And I read somewhere in the forum that in the process of pre-ordering Helm's Deep that you get a one time chance to purchase all 4 for $20 instead, if you do not already have them.

    WoW has not changed.
