    why play on legendary server ?

    Hi,

    I want coming back on LOTRO after a several years interrupt.

    I'm wondering why choosing Legendary Server. What's the difference with a classic server ?

    I sought more information but nothing very clear. It's not a classic or vanilla server with old rules and features.

    So why ?

    Thanks

    They stop on older content.
    Atm with Moria, so if you want to have an community on level for older content play legendary if you don´t want to run old endcontent again go classic and go straight to lvl 120.
    In addition some old questmops are revived on legendary.
    But this ia all for the differences.
    Traitlines are on leg, essencegear and essences too.

    I was a casual gamer so I didn't play a lot of high level content.
    Perhaps just twice against a giant turtle in the Moria or orcs in Angmar.

    What you mean is I'll be alone if I level up on a classic server ?
    Loneliness can be interessant but not every time.

    There aren´t this much players with a char in the lower level section. Still a few yes but not overgrowed. And the chats are now worldwide so there will be allways some who lsiten if you need help.
    You must know what you want level as fast as you want and stop atm at 120 and the area or maybe stop before cause you´ve done all the content before the new classic content is released.
    One more important information is that legendary severs are vip only. Now idea if you want to play vip/stay vip.

    It exists but is mostly ignored because it is inferior to regular gear. SSG wisely nerfed the Essenses after a great player outcry so we didn't get a repeat of the Nadhim debacle at lvl 50.

    Reasons not to :

    1. Don't fund this blatant cash grab/ cash cow milk squeezing attempt by Standing Stone Games. If they had any passion for this, they'd have made it an actual classic server.
    2. The population isn't that much higher at lower levels on legendary servers. The majority of players are nearing level cap now.
    3. To reiterate the mechanics are the same from the current game. There is literally nothing different and higher population of any sort won't benefit you since everything can be solo played. In fact you'll only be limiting yourself due to mob or node resource competition.
    4. As a result of the above, dungeon content is trivial as well. Think you're going into a dungeon to for a challenge? Nope, current mechanics + talent trees = people soloing raids or two manning raids.
    5. You have to be a VIP
    6. You already have characters, status and maybe guild on your original server.

    Agree with most of your points except nr(4).. The 65 instances are far from easy, OD T2C has not even been cleared yet. But now when we got the difficulty in place, they forgot to add decent loot for the time required. People will not go into T2C, or even T1 without getting rewarded for it.

    My biggest issue with LS currently is the gearing process, you don't get rewarded for doing T2 or T1 content. The 65 scaled loot is the only thing that drops inside all instances except OD, they restored some old loot for OD only, but most of those items are trash.

    When they finally got the difficulty right, they forgot to figure out what to do with the item progression and loot tables.
