    ... a thread about the 10th Anniversary yet. So here goes: https://www.lotro.com/en/10-year-celebrations The only thing I am a bit interested in is the Scavenger Hunt. A Time to Celebrate! "Looking in a mirror he was startled to see a much thinner reflection of himself than he remembered: it looked remarkably like the young nephew of Bilbo who used to go tramping with his uncle in the Shire; but the eyes looked out at him thoughtfully. 'Yes, you have seen a thing or two since you last peeped out of a looking-glass,' he said to his reflection. 'But now for a merry meeting!'" JRR Tolkien, The Lord of the Rings, 1954-1955 For ten years we have had the honor of bringing you the timeless world of Middle-earth. That's right: we can hardly believe it ourselves, but this April is LOTRO's 10th anniversary! We will be updating this page as the month goes on with all the news and events that will be going on to mark this momentous occasion! As always, thank you for being amazing Citizens of Middle-earth! Here's to yesterday, today, and the future of LOTRO! Special 12 hour Live Stream Join Jerry "Cordovan" Snook for a tour down memory lane on April 25th. Enjoy chats from Developers, gameplay, giveaways, and more! Make sure to follow us on Twitch to get notified as we go live. https://www.twitch.tv/lotrostream Watch live video from LOTROstream on www.twitch.tv Chance Thomas Reminisces We all know Composer, Chance Thomas, and the remarkable work that he's brought to the world of LOTRO. His soundtrack is as legendary as the tale it helps to tell. He's been kind enough to pick some of his favorite pieces from our history and give us some of his memories about working on, presenting, and composing them. Starting April 15th we'll be posting a video a day to our YouTube channel for you to listen to and enjoy well into the future! Anniversary Event Anniversary: Scavenger Hunt Starting on April 20th enjoy our annual Anniversary Event with expanded fireworks at the party tree (seriously, you have to see these!), quests, events and more! A new event for 2017! Lasting from April 20th – July 13th, every week you'll unlock three new quests. Each quest brings us back to the places we have been, and gets us some cool stuff in the process. To start, visit Mr. Waldo Rumble at the party tree in Hobbiton! "Often long after the hobbits were wrapped in sleep they would sit together under the stars, recalling the ages that were gone and all their joys and labours in the world, or holding council, concerning the days to come." JRR Tolkien, The Lord of the Rings, 1954-1955 GIFs and Images We really wanted to think on where we've been, the places we've built and seen, and the experiences that we've created. Here are to some of those memories!

    https://www.lotro.com/forums/showthread.php?653108-Anniversary-Scavenger-Hunt-Level-requirement&p=7717930#post7717930 The year 3: Trifles requires you to do an emote on an instance boss 10 separate times to complete the quest. Yeah, that's annoying, nothing mild about it. I was expecting something along the lines of the end of Volume 2 where you go to re-bury the Mithril Axe and all the dwarves you ran into along the way come back and talk to you about the things you did together. "Hey, remember when we did that thing? That was cool, wasn't it? Here's something to remember it by". But this is "Hey, remember when you did that thing? Go do it again! And go do all those other things again too! And we've got 10 years worth of random stuff like this for you to do again!"

    It isn't just a "look" back, in many cases it's making you replay old content. If I go to a college reunion I don't expect to have to take Calculus classes again.

    LotRO's transformation has been much more like Sméagol to Gollum than Frodo to Ring-bearer.
