LOTRO Store and Market

  • Once per account deliveries, such as expansion pack Expedition Supplies and Supporter Pack Starter items, now require a character to have the Novice trait before delivery to help prevent accidental loss of these items due to character deletion.


  • Turtles in the mission "Terrible Turtle Trouble" will now apply the Delving effects "Sauron's Wrath" and "Sauron's Blessing" on each other.


  • A couple Orc Defiler appearances were accidentally changed in a recent update, and have been corrected:
  • The Boar-tribe Chieftan appearance has been returned to its original state.
  • The U34 Ultimate Edition defiler appearance has also been returned to its intended Boar-tribe state. The name of its trait has also been corrected, as it changes your appearance into that of a Boar-tribe Orc, not a Mordor Orc.


  • The Renewal of Gondor Quartermaster now uses the correct map icon.
