In the past few weeks, there've been quite a few people complaining about LotRO's F2P not being free at all. In my view, this is completely ridiculous. You can play EVERYTHING in the game, including Mines of Moria and Mirkwood, completely for free. It doesn't even take an inhuman effort to amass enough points for this. Below is a link to a guide about how to play LotRO completely free, without ever paying a dime, without an excessive amount of grinding, and with Mines of Moria and Siege of Mirkwood completely free:
As far as working the deeds goes, it should be said paying customers also completed those deeds before LotRO became F2P for the virtues and titles they granted. In other words, they're not something only free players do because they refuse to pay, but they are also commonly done by paying customers for the virtues and titles.
