    I subbed for the month. I haven't played it since release. The game runs terrible on my 1080ti Intel 7 series 4k system. Terrible. Other players in chat has said the same thing. Others are willing to lower the graphics settings and resolution to something low in order to make it run a bit better, but I'm not. The last MMORPG I played with performance problems was back in DAoC days when dial up was the norm, so it was more acceptable back then. It's not acceptable to me now. Take the time to optimize your game right, and people will come. It's a shame too, because the quests were pretty good. The graphics are okay, not as picturesque as I remember, but that could be because objects keep popping in and out of view as I'm riding to an area. Ruins the immersion.
    I have 1080, i-7 7700k, 16GB RAM and run it on Ultra with no issues. The game crashes in Minas Tirith and areas around it, but that is about it.
    I have a 1080, same processor, 32GB RAM and also run it on Ultra with no issues. My immersion is just fine :)

    You're not running it at 4k resolution though. Not with that setup. I invested well over $3k to be able to run things at higher resolutions. It makes a world of difference and most older games allow it. I'm not going back to lower resolutions unless a game just simply doesn't support it. LoTRO does support it. Now, you may not be having problems, but I guarantee you if you bring up the topic in World Chat you'd get a lot of people chiming in about the poor optimization and performance of the game and that it's the engines fault. I know, because it was a common topic in world chat a week ago when I started and I chimed in with my experiences. I'm glad you're happy with the game, but to try and diminish the fact that I'm not because of performance issues is like saying I'm not entitled to my experiences. You think I spent time downloading a game, and sub to a game with the goal of not wanting to have a good experience? Get real man.

    The game doesnt support 4k turn it down to 2k and you wont have an issue.

    It's crazy how refreshing it's been to set 10 years of stuff aside, and go to these servers. To start from the bottom again, no twinked gear, actually looking forward to quest rewards...

    It's the best of both worlds: closer to the original mob challenge level, with all the QoL upgrades. Gotta say, I just might start up my annual sub again, for the first time since Fangorn.

    Agree very much about the universal toolkit, even if the only benefit was not having to switch out tools for different crafting jobs. Being account bound thus being able to use it with every alt makes it worth every penny.

    I disagree on the Mithril, though. I say, go the other way, cut mithril out entirely. This game was built to be traveled in; another thing I had all but forgotten until recently. Ered Luin is too beautiful a place to fast forward through.
    I think Mithril Coins should be removed from the game entirely. But since they're not going to, and still allow them to be purchased on the server, then I think they should be account wide. That only screws people who've already bought MC on another server, but still allows those with tons of TP to power their way through. It's a small criticism in the bigger picture for me though.

    I agree, there shouldn't be any special fast travel (outside of unlocking the route via visiting and repuation), no loot crates, no MC, and a much more limited cash shop.

    Remember when you used to have to unlock fast travel routes by first visiting the stable, and then getting the appropriate reputation. MC totally guts that mechanic. Same with unlocking additional trait and LI slots, storage, etc. For Legendary servers this should be "in game" via gold.

    If hobbit gifts were just once a day/week with no extra buy-in and they only gave small consumables and buffs, then I wouldn't mind them at all. No gear, mounts, or currencies of ANY kind.

    That's just my opinion of course not an ultimatum.
    The problem with traveling is if they want to attract the newer gamer there needs to be an option for them to fast travel.  This new generation is all about instant gratification. Giving them a choice to travel 2000m on a horse to turn in a quest or push the blue button and instant travel chances are they are taking the blue button.  

    Vets we are not forced to use the quick travel, I dont and if little Johnny is spending money on the game and using fast travel I'm fine with it.  It doesnt impact my gameplay and hes supporting the game.  
    People who want fast travel everywhere in a game like this are NUTS!!!

    Dear Nate your computer is really messed up.  I can run two clients on a I5 with a 960 at high resolution, one at 2k and the other at 1k.  Either your motherboard/CPU/GPU combo does not work well together or you have serious issues with your software.  It could be drivers too.  Oh and the difference between 4k and 2k is minimal.

    LotRO is completely CPU bound, any modern graphics card can run the game on Ultra just fine. There's no reason to lower the graphics and lowering the resolution will only net you small gains in performance.

    The only things that help are overclocking and an SSD. I've overclocked my 6600K from 3.5 to 4.2 and it's helped a great deal. Setting the affinity to a specific core helps some people as well, but it doesn't do anything for me.

    If you get stuttering in the first place it will never completely go away. All you can hope to do is make it less annoying.

    Here's a helpful page to understand what's happening and what players can actually do to help it:

    FYI to Linux users. I have the game running well in DX11 installed through Steam using the suggestion in the comments thread. https://www.protondb.com/app/212500

    When you finally drill down to the reddit article, I used winetrick verb script through Protontricks. I used the Protontricks wrapper because I wanted it to be game ID specific to LotRO. Not all my games can operate with this setting.

    I installed Protontricks using the wget method the author offers. Be sure to review and check the files to ensure they're proper and safe. It downloads the Python script, moves it to /usr/bin, and gives it executable permissions.

    You still must configure the store to use the external browser.
