    Question about Steed of Rivendell

    So the current deals for the Steed of Rivendell there is an account wide purchase option. When this steed is eventually brought back again will it still have an account wide option?

    The problem with your question is that there never really was this kind of situation before. The Steed of Rivendell is only the third mount with an account-wide option that ever was available in the Store. I can only tell you what happened with the other two.

    The Reveller's Gilded Steed always had a per-character and an account-wide option, plus there are a per-character and an account-wide bundle which contain the steed plus the Reveller's Gilded cosmetics. All of these are usually available during the Anniversary event and once again in autumn, roughly six months apart from each other. So far, the account-wide options for the Reveller's Gilded Steed have always been included in those returns. The situation differs from the Steed of Rivendell in that the Reveller's Gilded Steed does not include any War-Steed cosmetics (the corresponding set is earned in-game during the Anniversary Event instead) and that no other mount has been offered as part of a mount+cosmetics-bundle yet.

    The Steed of Bree originally only had an account-wide option when it was first available in December 2013. It was available again in April 2014 during the Anniversary Event. By then, a per-character option had been added (because players requested it, I think). In this case, the account-wide option was available again, but the starting point had been a slightly different one from the Steed of Rivendell, which arrived at the Store with both a per-character and an account-wide option to begin with.

    These are the facts we know of. My personal speculation is that the Steed of Bree, Steed of Rivendell and any future mounts with the same setup (mount plus War-Steed cosmetics with an account-wide option) will return to the Store on a longish circulation (because they are released at a slow pace to begin with) and will always have the account-wide option available (because it seems that Turbine has decided that for the premium-plus mounts the account-wide option is a way to get more sales than with the per-character option alone).

    I am so sad that I missed the opportunity to purchase this mount, I hope it becomes available again. I also hope that it would be better advertise, so everyone who wants one knows about it. Sucks for me that I took a 3 week break from the game at the time it was being sold, didn't know about it, or would have bought it.

    To answer the original question: The next time that this mount returns, it will be both the character and account-wide purchase options.

    I am fairly sure that you just made a lot of players happy. Of course they will now all ask: when will it be available again?

    None of the in-game display mounts had the Steed of Rivendell barding, so I could not see what it actually looked like. Fortunately, a few fan sites had screenshots so that I could see it before deciding to purchase.

    Laila needs a larger, outdoor stable!

    Often times, you can see an NPC war steed wearing store exclusive tack in Rohan cities right near the stable masters, even if it isn't available for preview at Laila's. You might have to check more than one city, though.
