The crafting system feels more useful and less tedious

Summary: I started this game as a free-to-play replacement for WoW. It's very different! The crafting system feels more useful and less tedious, distances feel more meaningful without flight, I actually prefer many of the minor mechanics of this game, and the community is great. Remember nice people? They all went here. It's a relief. I don't want to spend my free time wading through the usual online jerks.
Summary: Solid expansion pack, this IMO is where LOTRO really starts to take off, I never really thought the base game was anything to shout about but with expansion packs like MoM the game really starts to make a name for its self. The quests are so much better here than they are in the base game, the team at Turbine have certainly learnt from their mistakes there, the PvM is classed as some of the best in LOTROs history and the same can be said for the PvE which is further...
Summary: This expansion comes with 30 days VIP valued at $15. Plus a ton of stuff in-game. I think it was only $10 when I bought it, so amazing value. For new players, I recommend playing as much as you can for free and then purchasing this. Hopefully you'll at least be at Moria by the time your VIP runs out. I was able to get through Isengard without paying for anything other than this expansion. Since then I've bought the other expansions to support the devs.
Good expansion that finally starts seeing some game lore. Wish more people played this game.

Summary: Really cool expansion. Though, probably not as good now since less people are playing in this level range. Lotro is one of the best games that nobody plays. It's really a shame, the lower levels can be difficult to get through, and don't have enough game lore. The game gets more interesting the higher you get.
Summary: Fantastic. Eregion was a great place to quest as you searched for signs of the Fellowship and earned your first legendary weapon. The epic line of quests and the conflict with the Watcher in the Water was exciting. Delving into Moria was a great experience. At times it had some lag and some bugs, but I greatly enjoyed this expansion and this experience. Finding the Balrog, signs of his struggle with Gandalf, getting to the bridge where Gandalf fell...great great stuff.
Summary: LOTRO has gone to a free to play model. Yes you can play it for free but once you get to a certain part in the game around lvl 50 you almost have to buy this expansion. Moria is a blast and is a huge Zone.For advancment and getting swag then you have to get it. After playing it for months for free I had no problem buying this expansion. I played LOTRO for about 1 year until I finally got bored.
Summary: When I purchased this (October 6, 2010 for $14.97) was back when buying it entitled you to a bunch of freebies and I narrowly got in under the wire with those perks as they did away with them for all future uses of this boxed expansion pack. As far as LOTRO goes it was a very fun game but over the last two years it has fallen to the way of the suits and I would not recommend it to anyone unless they have lots of free cash in their pockets for the LOTRO store purchases...
Summary: This is an older product that is no longer produced after LOTRO went free-to-play a few years back. The activation sequence on an existing LOTRO account is a bit tricky, and is not documented anywhere. You have to: 1) log onto your account on myaccount.turbine.com (do not type the game key code on the front page under "Have a Product Key?
Summary: For $25 I received a month paid 'VIP' subscription ($15 through LOTRO) plus the moria expansion pack (for toons lvl 50 range), the rune-keeper and warden classes which I would have had to purchase at the LOTRO store, 2 extra character slots, and a couple of decent in-game items (not huge but nice to have). I'm happy with my purchase. LOTRO is a great game. I've played several other MMO's, (EQ2, Vanguard, WoW etc.
