    Helm's Deep Price

    Hi guys,

    I started playing LOTRO during Shadows of Angmar.

    I hadn't played since then, but today I decided to get back into the game. I purchased the 'Expansion Quadpack' on the store for $39.99 AUD - no worries.
    I also purchased 60 days of game time via the store, for $29.99 AUD.

    The $39.99 AUD & $29.99 AUD is exactly what I was charged via PayPal.

    When I go to purchase the Helm's Deep Premium Edition expansion via the store, it tells me the price is $29.99 AUD, but when I actually click on 'buy now' and enter my account details, then click on the PayPal payment option, it tells me the game is $59.99 AUD. Why the extra $20 once I actually click on 'buy now?'

    Any clarification would be greatly appreciated.

    The standard price for HD premium edition is 60$, but Turbine were doing a special discount for Christmas which reduced the price to 30$. Though the sale ended some days ago (on December 29?), obsviously they forgot to update their Market offer back to the original price.

    I reckon between the various season festivities and many Turbine employees taking some days off, this simply slipped past the marketing people. Hopefully they'll correct this little pmishap sooner rather than later.

    Ahhh awesome, thanks for the reply That makes sense. In that case, perhaps I'll hold off purchasing HD until I reach that content, and hope it goes on special again at some stage in the meantime. I just started a new Mini, so I guess there's no rush.

    Thanks again

    I'm on Meneldor. I have a level 8 Mini (never played much originally), so I created a new Mini, so I can go through the initial lore/starting quests again, which will hopefully act as a bit of a refresher.

    Well shoot! I saw it was still on sale, couldn't buy it before this because I only get paid once a month. My heart did a leap when I saw it was still on sale (so I thought). I quickly calculated my budget and went to buy it, so happy and excited. When I got to the paypal page, however, it was the same for me (though basic version, instead). I am crushed! I cannot afford to spend the $40 on this, and had been so happy to think I could get it on sale now. I know they have things going on, but this kind of slip up is false advertising. Please, please correct the pricing in the store to reflect what is on the page, if only for a few days to make up! I really want to buy your game, but I'm not going to spend $40 I can't afford. Twenty I can eke by and eat soup for a week or something.

    Was this even advertised? I've been waiting for a sale on HD before I bought it and totally missed this. Was it available in the UK? I've got twitter alerts setup and get emailed new tweets from the lotro twitter feed, but didn't hear anything about this.

    It was advertised here: https://www.lotro.com/forums/showthr...t-Now-Dec-29th and also on the Store sales page while the discount was still running. They also tweeted on https://twitter.com/lotrostore . I don't know where else they advertised this, but they gave us quite some chances to catch the sale, I think.

    For future references, it may be helpful to note that the LotRO Store uses a different Twitter page than the LotRO community team. If you only monitored the latter, it is quite possible that you missed the HD discount announcement and other short-lived sales.

    It started on the 19th Dec, my gf's birthday, which is possibly why I missed this one lol, & I only get 1 twitter redirect to email for free, I need to pay for more. Looks like I'll just have to pay full price then.

    EDIT: Just checked through my emails and there was a email shot sent on the 20th that I missed, what with getting Christmas sorted and everything it must of slipped by un-noticed :facepalm
