New content is heading to Lord of the Rings Online with Shades of the Past, also known as Update 7. The content will include a new skirmish for levels 70-75 for all group sizes and solo players, and it will be free for VIPs. While a new skirmish is always a welcome addition, Turbine is also revamping Fornost by splitting it into four, scalable six-man fellowships for levels 30-75 and it’s spit-polishing Moria as well as giving it a much-needed quest restructuring. The update should be on the Bullroarer test server soon, and the update should land in the main game sometime before June 5. Thanks, A Casual Stroll to Mordor.

Turbine is to release a Mithril Edition of Lord of the Rings Online, which looks to be a rather nice deal if you’ve yet to try it out. It will run you $29.99 and includes the game discs, a starter guide, keyboard map, 2,000 Turbine Points for spending in the in-game store, an exclusive Steed of the Horse-lords mount, and a quest pack covering the Trollshaws, Eregion, Moria and Lothlorien. Heck, the mount alone would cost you around $20 in the store anyway, so this is a bit of a bargain as the whole package is valued at $50. Seriously, Turbine, you’re killing my bank account with all these horses.Check it out here. Thanks, Massively.
