With F2P running overhere in europe since 2 weeks still many people think that playing Lotro is free...
Well, if you want to enjoy the whole package, its gonna cost money. Not buying quest packs or subbing is going to make the game very tedious...
We got a new kin on a new server and as soon as people find out mid 20's that it costs money to get that same great experience forthe rest of the game, they need to decide wether to invest money or replay the first 25 levels which will in the end bore them till death.
Its fun to see how people that loved the game in the first 20 levels suddenly change their opinions, with remarks like: I am not going to pay for an outdated game, Its a grinding game above level 20 because there is no (free)quest content anymore.
So how much does it cost?
I started the game allready owning the Angmar Box and the Moria expansion, which gave me 1000 store points, I have 2 characters with horses, extra vault space and 4 bags each and 4 traits each and i own the Quest content Low lands, Evendim and North Downs... I haven't spend a single dollar in the cash shop, but then i did start out with some points...
When my main reaches level 35 or so i might sub a month to reach Moria content.. After Moria i'll probably buy content instead of subbing.
So its actually much cheeper then other MMO's in the long run, when find a middle way ................ But to get a good experience it costs money....... As allways the golden rule is : Nothing good comes for free in life
