    They could have done more effort to be fair.

    This may as well have been fan-made if it was stripped of the official tag.

    $80 (plus tax) to play a high elf, I've supported LOTRO as a VIP all these 9 years. They are ridiculously overcharging for this. Should be a separate purchase.

    that video really highlights age of game engine, like LoTRo but couldn't care less about the new elves :)

    Daybreak could'nt foot the bill for a decent video? Most wow private server launch videos are more exciting than this.

    Nah, fan-made would probably look better.

    What a very poorly created video. Just horrible.

    Only now I'm realizing how upset I'm because of this. Returned one month ago after years ... started to enjoy, eagerly waited for release to add high elf to list (all my alts are still far from need to new expansion areas) ... just to discover I would have to spend 80€ for this. High elves should be in lotro store for honest price.

    Just today started to look around what else to play, I nearly lost already interest in Lotro to continue to play, after barely 1 month. So much I'm disappointed by this move of theirs. I think this move will make them earn much less money as they could.

    My goodness, that egregious trailer! Rebarbative!...What were they thinking? The game doesn't look anywhere near as unprepossessing as that!

    They have done one nice trailer - Riders of Rohan with several guys (and horses), dialogues...Why couldn't they have done stuff like that? Hey, even ask LOTR movie actors to appear.
    Honest description of trailer: 2-3 episodes from cutscenes, then static heroes exchanging blows with static enemy; static hero exchanging blow with several enemies; running heroes with effect like violet farting.

    There are rumors that High Elves will be added to the store as a separate race for usual 1000 points. Just wait a little.

    I would gladly buy but as I understand from their Mordor page "items" from packages will not be separately available. Not sure if we can count in as "item" all from this package.

    I thought they said "we'll put a lot of effort on the game to keep it going".

    It was told:
    a) Mordor expansion would be on sale "at winter" for 2495 Lotro points
    b) hight Elf would be on sale for 1000 Lotro points.
    When would their winter start - nobody knows. October? December? February? This year or next? Or, say, 17th anniversary of Lotro? No clarification.
    Physical items from package (in theory) are not to be purchased individually - all those earrings, titles...

    I'm glad they've finally arrived at Mordor and I'm very much looking forward to moving beyond the trilogy storyline. To be honest I rarely play the game as a Lord of the Rings story adventure. I just play it like a normal MMO now with characters that live in Middle-Earth.

    Anyway, I look forward to playing this around holiday this fall or winter.
