The Grindaversary

I am sure you all know that the LOTRO 4th Anniversary celebration began yesterday. There was a lot of excitement for a new horse and new cosmetics and new housing items. However, once it was determined exactly how much grind is required to achieve these things, people got grumpy. And people are still grumpy. I am still grumpy. I usually try not to write ‘editorial’ type articles on this site, however today I feel there is just cause for such an article. And here’s why…

An Outfit For Every Season

Recently I had the idea to create an outfit for every season. Sure, with every festival there are new season-themed outfits, but they are pre-fabricated and during the festivals you see everyone running around in them. So I thought it would be interesting to use other outfits and armours to create unique seasonal outfits. Hope you like them!

Winter-home Deed Rich/Poor Cosmetics

As I posted earlier, once completing 30 quests in Winter-home, the new Yule Fest town, you will be given the choice between two quests. The cosmetic quest rewards for each match the kind of people you will be helping (You get fancy clothes for helping the rich, shabby clothes for helping the poor).

I love the cosmetics of each! I will definitely be utilizing the wardrobe on these babies, let me tell you!

Without further ado, here they are!

Cosmetic Rune Satchels

Sorry for the pause in coverage of the November Update beta! I was spending my last few days in New Zealand with my family and now I’m back in the States!

It seems that while I was gone they fixed the ability to view cosmetic rune satchels in the store, yay! So here I present pictures of the rune satchels.

In other beta news, there seems to be a roaring debate over the new Winter-home quests and storyline. There are generally three kinds of quests you can get from Winter-home: Good (helping the poor), Bad (helping the rich), and Neutral (have no bearing either way, like the snowball fight). There are those who think that having bad quests like this at Yule is a Very Bad Idea. If you want to read the whole 8 page debate, here it is. Apparently, there is a deed for completing 30 quests in Winter-home. This deed then unlocks an option to do one final Good quest or Bad quest. Depending on which you choose, you get a specific title and a specific set of cosmetics. Not sure if I have the patience to do that on two characters in time for the update to go live (whenever that is), but we shall see.

Anyway, here’s the satchels:

New 2010 Yule Fest Items

I can’t tell you much about the new Winter-home village and Frostbluffs area for the 2010 Yule Festival because character copy is broken at the moment, but I have snagged some pics of the new cosmetic items!
