Is there any support being implemented for Mac users that are on the horizon? Did they ever fix the Catalina update issue?

Anyone have or know of a good breakdown of what level each zone and area is?

I want a Dwarf! Should I pick Guardian or Champion?

I want a definite answer please! Which will people in raids scoff at the least (since we know that "man" is the best race for everything)? It sucks so bad that they couldn't make dwarf have a definitive primary race-related class which fits it


Zoning advice: Must play vs "eh, do it for XP I guess"

I'm level 24 right now and still in bree, wrapping up life around the Old Forest, then heading north. The problem now lies in the fact that I'm a completionist, so by the time I lead Lone-Lands, or the zone after, is that I'll be overlevelled for An

Guardian with an Inferiority Complex

So I got my Guardian to 130 last weekend. My two-handed LI is coming along nicely 73/83 and somewhere in the 60s for the other. I'm starting to do more respectable damage and can safely take on light blues and greens at 130, I can even take down the

Do I really have to pay approx. 150$ for all the expansions?

New player. Is this the actual cost or is there some bundles I can look into that lower the price? Thanks!


A truly “heroic” class

Hello all, recently returned from a multi year drought and immediately bought the high elf race because that is who I always wanted to play. I’ve been enjoying leveling a hunter but it is missing a little something. What class seems the most heroi


Connection issues

Can you get the costumes from the character creation screen?

I haven't created a character in a while and was thinking of making a new one and saw all new outfits and character poses. They all look awesome. Can you get those in game?


It took my all weekend but I have decided on my class I'm going to main now, Champion.

As I wait to be able to transfer my old main, (burg), I have decided to play a High Elf Champion. Why High Elf? I love the lore for them, their intro quest, and they start with a minor ring of power that levels with them. Why Champion? Dual wield


Bit of help pls

Getting back into it, new game and all, plan on hitting up the VIP package, but I’m quite confused, it says it includes the quest packs but does that mean it includes the Moria and black gate and whatever else there is?


Advice for a new player?

Hi all, I’m sorry if this is brought up a lot. I’m tired of all the mmos out there right now and just want a casual/social experience in a world I love (Tolkien)... I know this game is old-ish, but it seems like a lot of love has been put into i
