Update: The pre-order packages have changed since I published this post. You now get 1000 Turbine Points with the Base and Heroic edition of Riders of Rohan and 2,000 with the Legendary Edition. You’ll also get an additional bonus for ordering before September 5. See rohan.lotro.com for details. Oh, and instances are now included in the pre-order. Yay!
I almost shed a tear when Celestrata confirmed that there would be no instance cluster shipping with Rohan but the water-works came upon realizing that the instance cluster isn’t even included in the pre-order. That and there are no skirmishes on the horizon are certainly depressing news. But alas, Turbine offers us a glimmering hint of hope in their special kind of
grinding repeatable quests. Rumors of something to do with building outposts and such.
To keep myself from weeping too much, I’ve been keeping busy with some extracurricular education, part of which includes flexing my creative and analytical muscles. And what better way than to make an infographic? Of course, I couldn’t help take the info from LOTRO. I wanted to graphically show how LOTRO’s pre-order offers have changed through the years but it ended up being way too text-heavy. It’s my first attempt though I don’t think it could past muster as a genuine infographic. There are still some good tidbits in there and I didn’t want it sitting around on a digital shelf feeling unappreciated so I’m sharing this here (after the jump).
Here’s hoping for more news of instances! Grind safely!
