So, if you didn’t know, Lord Of The Rings Online is now being handled by the team at Standing Stone Games. Nothing will change in game per se, but you do need to switch your accounts over to them. They know this is a hard thing to ask, especially for those who have been around LOTRO for a long time, so, they decided to do something nice for those who are sticking around.
So, on February 6th, anyone who is an active VIP will get a gift from the team. To get it, all you have to do is sign in, and be sure to log onto a character on your VIP account. It is important to note that this will only be until March 13th. What’s your reward? Well, you’ll get a Steed of the Eldar. Not just for your VIP character, but for all your characters on your accounts, and you’ll get to keep them forever.
A quick note, for those feeling left out. You can still get this too, even if you haven’t been playing Lord Of The Rings Online for a while. All you have to do is sign up for a VIP account between Feb. 6th and March 13th, and you’ll be eligible to get the mount too.
Now, once you log in and receive the mount, where do you get it? Well, as long as you have the riding trait (which you need to use a mount anyway), the new steed will appear in the Skills Mounts Panel. If you don’t have the riding trait, that’s ok, your steed and its gear will appear in your character inventory. Once you get the trait, the steed will be activated and you can ride it around.
Have any questions about this VIP reward? Well, Standing Stone Games did a small Q&A about it, so check it out and see if your question is answered.
