There is currently a bug with the festival races which allows you to easily farm festival tokens. This bug is somewhat common knowledge and will likely get fixed soon.This content is for members only.

Let’s talk about the future today; Pyrite Ore. Well all know what happened in Wrath of the Lich King, Epic gems became obtainable from Titanium Ore in the patch 3.2, the people who had titanium ore stockpiled made thousands upon thousands of gold the first week that epic gems were released, the others; not so much.
Looks like this will be a SUPER weekend at Lotro, most of the extras seem to be as a payback/compensation for the Sunday January 30, 2011 downtime and the rollback that the fix entailed…
Found some info, laughs, and an improved dps meter in this super sweep through the forums….
This weekend we’re granting all players an extra 5% XP on all monster kills. All you need to do is log in and start slaying! In addition, all monsters will have a chance to drop Tokens that can be exchanged at vendors for Gift Boxes. The Bonus XP and Token drops are currently live and will end Monday February 7. Plus, keep an eye out for bonus Tokens and Gift Boxes in the LOTRO Lotteries all weekend long!
The easiest by far, Phirius Token Coin farming can be done within a few minutes. Since the quest is a dropped item, we can farm not just todays quests, but also tomorrows )or the whole week) at the same time. I like to stock up on about 2 days worth, or 20 dailies. This then grants me 100 Phirius Tokens quickly.
If you are not logging in much, this FYI is for you.
The Tokens will stop dropping on June 30th, 2010, and the npc barterers will be gone after July 7, 2010.
So, clean up your bags!
Instead of getting only a few tokens in a few days, use this exploit to get enough tokens to buy all your armor in a few days. This will bypass the dungeon reset, and allow you to get enough tokens and epic loot to outfit your character in days, not weeks or months.This content is for members only.
LOTRO + 3 expansions, $9.99
I did not try and purchase, from those that did this IS for NEW subscribers only
If you never tried Lotro this looks like a way to get all the expansions via a digital download for $9.99 plus 30 days free playtime
PLUS there is a current $9.99 per month offer (from regular $14.95 a month) going now that is the same as the founders monthly pricing….
Lotro was just acquired by Warner Bros. is this a good or bad thing?
Dunno. (Mongo only pawn in game of life)
Todays patch finished an hour early, but even after testing on the preview server Bullroarer it went live with these known issues:
Quest: Reporting In
After reaching level 30, players will receive an email with an attached item. Using the item bestows the quest; Reporting In. Currently players are unable to complete this quest. You must delete the Skirmish Enlistment Request from your inventory. This will cancel the quest. Doing so will allow you to accept the Skirmish Tutorial quests from the Skirmish Captain.
Spring Festival is back until May 3, 2010
Also the anniversary tokens are back starting today, so get out and kill lots of stuff and turn in your tokens, in the past the prizes included lots of hope tokens, potions, and cooked food to stock up on for free, plus cosmetic items
Keep playing the lotro lotteries
I’ve made more gold offline by them, than playing the game in the last 3 years
