Hi, the game is still going  strong and is very stable. I see you are from the UK so I would suggest Snowbourn or Eldar servers which were the EU servers before the Turbine takeover a couple of years back but still have the highest EU player bases.

If you played a while back, you may have to do some server choosing upon logging in with your old account which is no problems. Also as a previous player, you will be  Premium if you play F2P but if you like the game after checking it out and decide to go VIP (sub), they have a good 3 month option for £19 ish

 

Also this weekend is the 6th anniversay celebrations where it is 100% xp boost and various fastive activities to earn some goodies.

I would listen to the poster above on transfer solution because it is right. However the game is not going strong. If you are looking for a populated server [US] then there are only three servers which would be brandywine, elendelmir, and landy other than that other servers are pretty much dead.

 

If you love LOTR just like everyone else who plays lotro you will like how turbine did the pve lore but then again one does not mess up when it comes to lotr ip. DONT expect to play a fun and exciting game though, the gameplay combat is simply outdatted and too slow. 

in conclusion: Play for the sake of learning more about lotr lore/story because they did a good job there. Don't play if you want exciting combat because you won't get it. Don't play if you like pvp because it is oone of the biggest fail in this game. Dont play if you hate a cash shop. In short everything about this game fails but its lore.

 

hope it helps.

If you're from the UK, you should join Laurelin. It was the EU RP server and is still the busiest server with EU and UK players.

The game content keeps getting lower in quality. From moria to RoR there is a huge difference on what they put dungeons/instances, raids, etc..

No wrong again. All of the RoR instances are more interesting than the Moria Turtle "raid". The legendary weapon system is now superior to when Moria launched. Things were so bad then that one-handed  Guardian weapons had Overpower legacies on them.

When CoH shut down I turned to LoTRO and have really enjoyed my play experience on Landroval.

Hope to see you in game.

So you said im wrong by giving your "interest". You based the quality of the game (content wise) based on what interestes you better rather than facts. Moria had much more to offer than RoR. 

Damn straight the legendary weapon system is now superior to when moria launched......if you like the insane grind it is right now.

[mod edit] I play on Nimrodel and have no problems finding people to group with.  Also, if pvp is your thing that's fine but don't knock a game just because it doesn't have what you think pvp should be.  I'm an 85 rk and have never spent one dime on this game, yes you can buy stuff if you want but it is by NO MEANS necessary so excel.  All in all I think for the money(WHICH IS NOTHING) it's one of the best MMO's out there.

You know what. If you can tell me how you got to lvl 85 without spending a "dime" on the game, it would be great.

Otherwise i think you are wrong in every level. Give me a link, steps, something that shows me you got to 85 without paying. Heck ill even take that adivce and do it myself and ill never call this game pay2win.

Personally I sub to the game and having a blast. But there is no doubt you can play the game and not spend a dime other than on expansions. I think that was what poster was talking about, never having to use the store. You would still need to buy access to get to 85 through expansions.

If anything that was covered was a lie, I resent that. That feels as big as any crime as any committed.

You do have to buy Moria but you can get the quest bundles for TP.  I think I paid 3000 tp for Moria, Evendim, and Angmar which also gives you a total of 5 player slots.  Then just got down to grinding TP.  Not hard to grind 4-500 TP in a few hours.  So it took me approx 2 weeks @ 1-2 hrs a day for enough TP to buy all the expansion quests.  Some may say that that is "too grindy" for their tastes but I didn't mind.

Nope, since the f2p switch you don't have to buy Moria for the warden and the rk, you can buy them separately from the Store. But of course it's cheaper to buy the expansion :)

There's really different opinions on how healthy the game is.

Im a eu player who wants to play on a eu server. Do I waste my time downloading?

I play 3 diffirent server's,  but not brandy and some the other's figuring there th high populated  server's. Windfola being 1. depends on your playing time, from what i have  exsperinced. Late morning early after noon est U.S. time  Eldar's strong and  the other eruo servers i would think are.

 Have to keep in mind many are running alt's.  but still playing main char.'s,  so server pop.'s up high  .  If your figuring  to get back and server change isn't an issue. i would start  on 2-3 diffirent servers.  run into  Bree  check  the  social panel and hit regional asking.  Also hit the forum's some lower pop. server's are  trying to recruit and they maybe fit your time schedule.  Key is the your reg. play time.  I say it's  solid to very strong game  still.

 But i'll add it's ben nerfed down so much the last yr.  it's a solo state far from what it use to be, So i'll have go along with the other's on content and game play.

There are different ones, indeed. My opinion would be at the healthy side, the engame range is usually crowded, and the lower range isn't a ghost town either (but not crowded, except the starting areas, where you can find obviously a lot of mailing / storage alts for high level players beside the actual leveling ones)

 

There's a german forum making login charts, based on those charts Withywindle is the most packed former Eu server, followed by Laurelin, Eldar and Snowbourn on the same level (+2 german servers, Gwaihir and Belegaer, the german Rp server). The heaviest activity is between 18-24, peak login counts are around 21:00 (eu time)

 

So if you have some free time to download the ~18Gb, you could check on those servers:) What muddytrousers suggested is a good way (checking on Bree), but keep in mind that at the moment the Anniversary festival is on, and most of the activites happening in Bree so it's more crowded than usual.
