A Baker's Dozen of Weatherstocks

Weatherstock XIII, the annual player concert series hosted on the Landroval server, comes back to The Lord of the Rings Online tomorrow, July 17th. The concert will feature 20 different player-made bands performing at the top of Weathertop in the Lone Lands for all to hear.

Weatherstock has long been a tradition of the LOTRO community since close to the MMO's inception, seeing bands take to the ruined ring of Amon Sul to perform for their Free People friends. The series, which enters its thirteenth year, will see long-time bands such as organizers The Lonely Mountain Band and more take the stage to perform for those eager to brave the Lone Lands on Saturday.

The team behind the event has put together a line up, which starts at Noon Eastern on July 17th and runs through 5:15 in the afternoon with an Afterparty taking place in Bree's Festival Grounds shortly afterwards later on that evening. Eager concertgoers will be able to head to Weathertop and get their virtual seat early to join in on the concert, but if you're unable to attend in person, Weatherstock will be streamed live in its entirety on Twitch. If you're interested in checking out Weatherstock in person, you'll want to make sure your toon on Landroval can withstand the mobs in the Lone Lands - or just have high level players ferry you there as well - ahead of time. 

In other Lord of the Rings Online news, Tier 5 of the Fall of Khazad-dum opened up earlier this week, bringing a new challenge to LOTRO's raiders. The raid itself, which puts players in the shoes of Durin's folk during the fall of Moria, sees raiders take on the Balrog that became known in Middle-earth as Durin's Bane from this point forward. This is part of Update 30, Blood of Azog, which launched last month as well as two new Legendary progression servers, Shadowfax and Treebeard.
