The Lord of the Rings Online Description
Middle-Earth comes to life in The Lord of the Rings Online. Travel to the fields of the Shire, ride in the hills of Rohan, enter the halls of Gondor, or face the perils in the depths of Mordor. The Lord of the Rings Online lets you become part of the epic adventure and carve your own legend.
Create characters that honor the lore of the J.R.R. Tolkien tales. Choose from races such as Hobbits, Elves, Dwarves, Beorning, or Man. Select classes such as the stealthy Burglar, the inspiring Captain, the mighty Warden, or the wise Lore-master. Each character is measured by stats like Morale, Power, Wrath, Might, Vitality, Armour, Will, and Fate. Each race and class combination opens up different abilities, skills, traits, and virtues.
Characters in The Lord of the Rings Online can level up to 130 through experience, which can be gained from slaying monsters and fulfilling Deeds. Deeds can also award Reputation, Titles, and treasures. Reputation is a key feature, as there are quests, Deeds, and NPCs that will only be available if it is at a certain level. Higher Reputation also gives benefits for travel and repair, as well as depending on Regions and Factions.
Aside from the usual MMORPG features such as cosmetics, guilds (in the form of Kinships), housing (called Homesteads), and mounts, The Lord of the Rings Online also has a unique PVP mode called Monster Play.
In Monster Play, players take on the role of the enemies in Middle-Earth or as defenders of the Free Peoples. As the standard characters in The Lord of the Rings Online are always on the side of the heroes, Monster Play offers the opportunity to play the bad guys, such as the Orc Reaver, Spider Weaver, Uruk Warleader, or the Warg Stalker. Monster Play is the only way to earn Commendations that is used to obtain certain traits, skills, cosmetics, and Legendary items.
