In a recent community live stream, the Lord of the Rings Online Producer Oleg "Raninia" Brodskiy shared more details on legendary items' long-awaited arrival, and more.
Last year much of the discourse around The Lord of the Rings Online was one where the community didn't feel as though the team was doing as much as it could to communicate with its players.

It looks like Lord of the Rings Online's monetization will not change in a significant manner before the Gundabad expansion due sometime later this year.

Weatherstock XIII took place over the weekend (We even streamed a little bit of it!) and one aspect Bradford could not shake was just how cool the Lord of the Rings Online community has been over the course of the game's life.
