    You didnt really need the subscription this early on, everything in Bree is free to play (F2P); it isnt until you move out into other areas where either a quest pack or sub starts to become useful; even then it isnt mandatory; I ran my first character up to around L90 as F2P.

    Other than that, you are using the panel correctly, and posting a fellowship request is as you think.

    You havent said which server you are on, so it might be you are possibly using the wrong one for your needs; if you are EU and using a US server (or the other way around), you will be playing outside of the peak gaming time for most other players; this means fewer people to team up with, but at higher levels it means less lag and stuttering from server load, sop swings and roundabouts.
    Thank you for the response. I am on Crickhollow and I live in the western U.S. I will see what I can do about joining a kinship. Regarding the F2P, how did you overcome the gold cap on the coin purse? Just curious. Thanks again!

    You can purchase an unlock for the gold cap in the LOTRO Store for 395 LOTRO Points. (Actually that raises your gold cap from 2 to 9999, which is the hard limit imposed by the software.) If you simply spend some real money on the account, like buying the minimum amount of LP, that will permanently upgrade your account to Premium and raise the gold cap from 2 to 5 for all current and future characters.

    Each character who logs in while the player is VIP will have a bunch of benefits permanently unlocked, such as gold cap unlock and fast stable ride use. You only need to create a character and log in and back out of the tutorial while VIP to unlock these perks, so it's a good idea to create every possible character you might want to play while you are VIP.

    Have fun!

    As above, or going VIP for a single month - which is actually more cost effective, as you get a lot more for your money than you would from buying and spending the LP; however I didnt know that at the time, and purchased the wallet from the store when I had enough earned LP to do so.

    Buying an expansion, or going VIP also opens up lots more character slots, F2P only gets 2; if you then create a character for each slot, and start levelling them up together - ie a week on each at a time; you find it MUCH easier. They can save and swap resources each skill needs, craft armour, jewellery etc, for each other, and each earns LP that is all added together to buy expansions all the other characters you create can also use.

    Make sure you create them and get them through the training quests while still VIP - so they all get the VIP benefits.

I would like to quest in the Southern Barrows and fulfill some quests in the Great Barrow, but I have been unable to successfully find anyone who will do this quest with me. I understand the basics of the fellowship system (as far as the tutorial scripts explained it) but there are generally only like five or six players that I see when I look in the social panel. Am I missing something? Furthermore, what is the acceptable method for asking randoms to team up with you? Any help would be greatly appriciated! I just bought a month of access to this game so I am hoping that this is just me and not a recurring problem that I am going to face throughout the game.

    Thanks again!
    As someone else replied to your message, there are kinships that do low level content (i've seen some going from level 10 CAP, increasing by 10 every week or 2 weeks), so you can ask around for that.

    Hi May I ask a question? When should I deconstruct legendary weapons. I have read some old thread, which saying level 31 is the best. Is it still true?

    It varies, increasing with your level.

    When you decon at 31 or higher you can select a legacy scroll that you can use later to change the legacy on another item. It's also a break point where you get slightly better relics and IXP rune. (The break points are 2, 11, 21, 31, 41, 51, 60.) Deconning at 31 is good in Moria and a bit beyond, but when you reach level 66+ you'll want to hold LIs longer and get them up to 60.

    The relics and IXP runes from level 60 decon get a lot better after character level 65. By the time your character is in the late 80s levels the decon of a max level LI will give an IXP rune that can take a new LI to level 48-50 immediately.

    Hope that helps.

    Thanks a lot for your help! Can I ask another question, after moria, which zones are the best to buy for f2p?

    If you're going with the quad-expansion-thingie, you can do a few small extra quests outside Moria at start of Lorien before the quests stop. There are also a couple of repeatable epic bits inside Lothlorien that allows you to get Lorien rep (if I remember correctly). Tested finishing every last quest in Moria a couple of years ago, stopped at level 63. Bit boring since the quests were mostly blue and green at the end but it got the xp.
    If you have the quad (includes Mirkwood) just head out to Mirk and do all of the solo stuff there. Then you're good to go for Rise of Isengard (also quad pack) and Dunland, lasting you through to 75ish.

    PERSONALLY I like to run some Lothlorien (end lv 61-62) > much of Enedwaith (to 65) > some Dunland (to 70-71) > most of Great River (to 74-76) but as an old noob in this game I have the luxury of skipping around a bit. Last playthrough I did all of Mirkwood (for the first time in ages) and had plenty fun doing it. Hard to tell if it was fun because of mildly sentimental value or if it was actually pleasing.

    (caveat - am still on first cup of coffee, errors may occur)

    If you are a completionist, at some point you will need to buy Lothlorien (but buy the quad pack first), it takes MONTHS to get full rep otherwise, as there are only two repeatable rep quests, and very few rep quests available for F2P; the above post noted that some Lothlorien quests go back into Moria, so keep the 21st hall anchored unless you like commuting, as there are several back and forth quests.

    There are also quests at the end of Mirkwood that come back to Lothlorien, and this is where you need to have bought the area, you cannot get into the city to complete these quests, unlike a few others that allow you to enter via a rope hanging 100m to the left of the entrance. There are no AH in Mirkwood, and only one Vault Keeper ( there is one AH hidden away in the city in Lothlorien); so make sure you have the rep port for Bree or Thorins Hall; full rep with Thorins Hall also allows you to buy a 68% speed goat in the Blue Garrison Hall that can be used in Moria. (Sarnur is the fastest way to gather TH rep items, you can do it in a couple of days if you try).

    The quad pack is awesome value, and the quest areas will keep you happy for months, I created a bunch of alts, just so I could go through the different areas and explore the quests without going too far over level with each alt.

    The next must have pack is Rohan; again this is a huge area where you cannot do all the quests one one alt without getting stupidly over level - I got to L92 with my first character, and still didnt do everything.

    If you've got the budget, then the expansions are best, especially the rest of the Quad Pack. (Still a good deal even though you already bought Moria separately.)

    Mirkwood: 60-65+
    Rise of Isengard: 65-75+
    Riders of Rohan: 75-85+

    Next, purchase of Helm's Deep will cover 85-95+.

    After Helm's Deep there are seven quest packs in a row before the Mordor xpac. You'll have earned enough LP from the expansions to buy a few of these and you'll porbably have a much better idea what you want to do next by that time.

    Have fun!

    The Quad packet is available for real money via the LOTRO Market; which can be found under "Store" at the top of the forums; I dont think it is available for LP.

    Click "Store", select "LOTRO Market", and the select "Expansions". If you dont do that last one, you will see a list of expansions, but the Quad pack isnt one of them, follow the link and it is the LAST item in the list.

    It is a lot cheaper to buy the Quad with RL money than to buy TP and then buy the separate expansion packs in the in-game store; however, if SSG do a Thanksgiving sale, it might be even cheaper (if you can wait that long, and if SSG do what Turbine used to do).

    Dont forget to go to the store in-game and claim the 50mithril SSG are giving everyone as a "Sorry we screwed up" consolation. The code is "MORDOR MITHRIL"; and everyone can get it, even F2P players who are nowhere near Mordor in the game.

    Good point, but there's no space in the code string: MORDORMITHRIL

    My bad; I havent fully recovered from my accidental over-dose* of brain pain meds on Thursday.



    * Not so much an over-dose, I ramped them up too quickly after two pain burn-throughs in 48 hours, and suffered major side-effects; at least my useless doctor has finally arranged for an MRI and agreed to refer me to a neurosurgeon.

    There should be a bright green "Add to Cart" button, with the price above it; if there isnt - are you using a script blocker that might be stopping the store from displaying/working correctly??

    It works properly for me using FireFox/Win7

    Make sure you set the country correctly, using the small flags at the top of the cart page (when you get there), to set correct currency and avoid excess taxes.

    Are you using NoScript in Firefox?? There is a bug in the latest FF update causing the NS icon and warnings to vanish.

    There is a temporary fix, although it may well break after the NEXT FF update (the dev is working on it).

    click "Help" and then "Restart with addons disabled". click safe mode when prompted and allow the FF window to open; once it has, close it and open FF as normal, and the NS icon and alerts are back!!!

    The relics and IXP runes from level 60 decon get a lot better after character level 65. By the time your character is in the late 80s levels the decon of a max level LI will give an IXP rune that can take a new LI to level 48-50 immediately.

    Hope that helps.
    Hi, can I ask a couple of more questions about the legendary system? Is level 2 a break point? Someone told me level 11 is the first break point. The relics has 10 tiers. If each break point can give a better relic. Does it mean the highest tier I can get is only tier 7 ( 2, 11, 21, 31, 41, 51, 60)?
    Many thanks!

    If you decon at level 1 you get a single tier 1 relic. At level 2 you'll get 2-4 of them, so that's a minor break point. At each subsequent break point the "loot table" for relics gained will improve, but it won't necessarily give higher tier relics. You won't get tier 7 relics from decon until you're playing in Rohan and deconning character level 70+ LIs that have 60 levels.

    Right now, just slotting a tier 1 or 2 relic will be sufficient. The improvement from no relic to tier 1/2 is larger than from 1 or 2 to 7 and you'll be swapping to new LIs to get better DPS every 3-5 levels until you exit Moria.

    You can also get/make scrolls that allow your LI to reach level 70. General wisdom is, at lower levels decon at L31, once you get into Rohan, decon at 60 or 70.

    There is a second set of break points, the first set gives runes and shards, the other IXP tokens, the second set goes on the 6's, so 26. 36. 46. etc.
