Am currently level 58, have been playing for almost 2 years. I have not spent a cent in this game. 

 

Obviously I haven't been able to do all the quests, but I have followed the epic line and am now in Mirkwood. Sometimes the line runs out and you have to grind a bit to get to the next  level to re start the thread. Playing as a Guardian has made it a bit easier  as I am able to hold my own against higher foes. Every now and then I get my high level Kinnies ( Lords of Moria, great bunch of people from all over the world) to come help me get past tough bits.

i have up trying to craft ages ago as it was a pain trying to keep up when moving through the higher levels. But the last 2 days I decided to go full on and develop as a scholar. So I farmed for a few hours and am now working on Artisan scholar. It's been good to have a break from the epic quest, and I am still getting some Xp. I try and do some grinding for deed tp every now and then, mani ly to buy exp boosters.

anyway am still enjoying the game. I still reckon it has the best interface of any game I ve played online. 

 

Cheers

F2P, not so much, if you pay for a subscription, this game is great.

 

PS, SWTOR F2P vs LOTRO F2P 

~ Lotro wins hands down, in Swtor you have to pay for even the fracking hotbars so you can set up your abilities on your bars in a proper organized format

 

 

Check out these links, SWTOR F2P is HIGHLY LIMITED and GAME BREAKING, not even trolling SWTOR, I actually have a paid subscription currently to both swtor and Lotro.

It is a lot like WoW, except

1) much worse combat

3) housing is pretty awful, but at least they have basic housing

4) bag space is terrible - never enough and tons of items and crafting items

5) they have destroyed the loot system for raids and dungeons

6) AH is terrible - but it works barely

7) new content is often poorly made or was rushed

8) they don't fix some bugs. still selling a broken Raid in the cash store

9) mail system substandard - can only mail 1 item

Overall, they have done a terrible job with this game.

If you don't mind a poor MMO (much worse than Rift, GW2 or WoW) in terms of game play, and don't mind slow combat and lag, then you might like it.

People playing are nice and helpful mostly. And it has some nice areas and graphics. You can play for a while with only subscribing for one month - but the store is always in your face and gameplay is grindy.

Oh and this Free to Play game will cost you at least $80 to get most of the expansions and content.

tl;dr  was a pretty good game; still playable; quite expensive to get expansions; very substandard game now; pretty landscapes; tolkien!

Well I would disagree with pretty much everything you said.1) combat is no better or worse then wow but way better then ffxiv 2) Lag is an issue sometimes on certain dungeons (that's why we hide cloaks only on certain dungeons and pvmp) 90% of the time you don't need to worry. I have played since beta and could probably count the times I've crashed on one hand. 3)how is housing awful? You get trophies from playing the game a decorate your house with your accomplishments. Kin house are used all the time for kinship events. 4) use your vault, your "awful" housing storage and wardrobe vault to manage your inventory. There is plenty of storage you just need to manage it. 5) how exactly have they destroyed the loot system? 6)ah is horrible? Come on it is not it works exactly how its supposed to. It may not have the addons to hold your hand like wow but works perfectly. 7)RoR was neither poor or rushed. Its was a very good expansion. 8)not sure which raid your referring to here please post a link. 9)oh no send multiple mails. Overall its still one of the bette MMOs out today. As for f2p I sub so can't comment. As for having to buy the expansion well good we all do. No f2p gives you everything for free. Actually in lotro if you save up enough turbine points you can buy every expansion. You gain points but completing in game activities so you could technically play all for free.

Pretty uneducated response. Maybe you are new or play alone a lot?

For example:

Compare housing to Rift or EQ2 (which you probably have no clue about) and you can see how lacking it is. There is a reason 1) most players don't use the house they bought and 2) players have been asking for years for housing upgrades. Turbine is finally making a very small improvement to housing.

Combat. No one is going to take you seriously if you say Lotro's combat is the same as Wow's. Wow is know for being very responsive in movement and combat. Lotro is known for having slow combat with many inductions.

I guess you don't read the forums or you would know how many players have reported lag issues. Just a few thousand posts on this problem, including POSTS BY TURBINE themselves saying they are trying to fix these issues. This has been going on for years. Glad you never have lag or notice it.

Housing storage is limited - of course it would not help with storage much. This is the MMO where you cannot actually get any large size bags. Compares to Rift or Wow, storage sucks and you have to spend real money to buy it.

This also just shows how clueless you are - or maybe you just solo and don't talk to other players who do group content: https://www.lotro.com/forums/showthread.php?493087-Update-9-Loot&p=6577517#post6577517

Now when you run a dungeon you may not get any good loot - and maybe no one will.

The broken raid is Dragioch.

Seriously - read the forums or read these forums: http://lotrocommunity.com/forum/forum/2-general-discussion/ if you want to know about the things that make players of Lotro really unhappy. Your view is of someone who doesn't have any global perspective, never raids, and is not very good at comparing game features cross games. The AH without mods works much better in WoW.

Lotro can be a fun game for some - but it compares badly and is too expensive. Paying more than $80 for part of a game - when $40 will get you all of GW2 with no nagging store popping up all the time.

 But, if any of you have a suggestion for an MMO I should be able to play if I can play LotRO, by all means, go ahead. I just want a good MMO thats fun and I can play often.

WoW runs a millions times better than Lotro on an older computer. Lotro has a memory leak - if you have 32 bit Windows and want to play search the forums for the fix to stop it crashing. You might be able to play Lotro on low settings, and the beginning is pretty nice if you have never played. You can try it.

WoW has a great free trial up to Level 20 with PvP and dungeons included also.

The game isn't bad, however I would suggest their sub if you're going to mess with it in any seriousness. I played to about level 30 and quit.

The game is solid, however I had no interest in buying dated content for premium prices (at least at the time). Is it worth it to try yes. If you have friends it can last you awhile if you're solo it will get old faster than most MMOs.
