The Legendary server for Lord of the Rings Online now has a name: Anor. In addition, the team revealed that the start time for the "vanilla" LOTRO server will be on Thursday, November 8th at 9:00 am Pacific / 12:00 pm Eastern!

From our earlier article about LOTRO Legendary:

The Legendary World is more than "just a rollback" as it will retain some of the vast number of improvements to the game over the years. Races and classes that have been added since "vanilla" such as the High-elf race, the Rune-keeper, Warden, and Beorning classes will be playable on the Legendary server. In addition, "all the bug fixes, gameplay and UX/UI improvements made to LOTRO over the years will be kept".  Expanded content is expected to roll out about every four months.

Other facts about the Legendary World:

  • VIP or Lifetime VIP subscriptions are required
  • Trait trees will be included
  • no PvMP at launch
  • Legendary Weapons will not be available until Mines of Moria story arrives
  • One world server only for all regions
  • festivals and anniversary events will be present
  • previously purchased expansions & quest packs will be "honored and allow you access on Legendary once the server reaches that point in the story"
