    I wonder how popular the server would be if they took the store out for that server.  VIP and lifer only, keep all the content as it is now, but no store

    I wonder how popular the server would be if it would be a real classic server. With VIP only and no store, and everything like in 2007.

    I think that at least 95% of the actual playerbase would switch over there, as well as thousands and thousands of players who had left would return, for old times sake.

    This way they could cash in like crazy, but the actual legendary server will be dead in no time.

    Also the cemetery is still there in some form and capacity but it has been changed (or the Old Forest around it):


    As for the swamp next to Old Forest, it remains untouched.

    Thanks, at least it is still there (but for how long...).

    Can't believe what they did to southern Ered Luin ?

    I'll have a look at it once the server is back online. In the meantime, it would make sense to test if areas are still accessible on the live servers. Only yesterday I noticed that it is no longer possible to enter the Unexplored Territory surrounding the hidden village in the southern Lone-Lands.

    I appreciate his attempt to convince the developer not to add any additional walls. It seems that other explorers have also expressed their concerns but, judging by the developer's reply on the issue, I doubt it will have any effect. Posting screenshots of off-map places on the OF will only cause more invisible walls to appear.

    Those places would soon be gone forever or at least gated out of the gaming world anyway it seems, so this last attempt by some players to save them won't matter.

    Over the last years screenshots of off-map places on the OF would have been a really bad idea, now maybe they see how much love people feel for this places...

  4. Uhm... what?? :r

    Think i have seen enough, if this will come i'm done with the game.

    Content has already been very poor over the last years, the only thing that still stood out were the old regions, even when they reworked and watered down the quest content there.

    But even just riding around there gave me that nostalgic feeling from days long ago again.

    The old areas were unique, each one for itself. Can't believe how all the douche bags in the OF celebrate that copy/paste bullshit.

  5. Whoa yeah, this sucks hard.

    Hate how all the butt-munches in the comments are whining "thank you for this and welcome back blabla", pure cancer.

    When will this shit go live? Because i haven't played seriously in a long time anyway, but when i am finally no longer able to reach the off-map places in the old regions, i will be completely done with this crapfest that has once been a great game.

  6. While browsing the offical forums the other day i came up with a completely random thought - has anyone ever been out exploring and having Erebrandirs Horseshoe equipped? :)

    I doubt it will have any effect, but who knows, this thing sometimes changes little things in the game, like giving a buff, changes lines in quest texts or spawning extra NPCs. They never said what all of it's effects are...

    I equipped it and tried to visit hobbit & squirrels but no luck, invisible wall still wouldn't let me pass, and escaping in the southern lone-lands towards the hidden village still resulted in a port.

    Anyone tried this also in other places?

    I know it is a total crazy idea, but hey, who knows... ;)


  7. Thanks to the help of my friend Jadis i was able to find this real cool place in Moria, in The Old Silvertine City.

    You can get behind a building there, and upon further exploring... well, just see the pictures :)

    Behind the building




    Up the hill, looking down




    After jumping down, you can see the plain green plains we explorers love so much to see. As soon as you enter these, the game colors change




    Steep walls everywhere, but when getting closer, you can see through them and look down to a strange looking Zelem-Melek






    End of the journey, as usual, in a perma-fall, but as always, "stuck" got me out



    Happy exploring everyone d;)b

  8. Nice pictures, Pontin, i love to see some new posts in here!

    The shire offers a lot of cool places to visit.

    There is a river, a bit east from your spot:



    Up on the hill in Frogmorton:



    Mathom house from above:



    Behind the gate to the far downs:





    I'm on Belegaer-DE, if someone is interested in having an exploer adventure together d;)b

    They finally deleted that shit. As I said a few hours ago to my fellow kin co-leader in PM, if there's any administration on Middle-earth more awful than Turbine, it's my university, an that's saying a lot if you knew it :P

    There is a new funny thread where someone is is namecalling and blaming another user for always acting like a butt-munch, i wonder how long it will take them to close or delete this. It's already there for 24+ hours :P


  10. Just wanted to bring new life into this thread, here are some views from the mountain between Galtrev and Isengard

    The road to nowhere is wide open


    In the middle of nowhere, far up on the mountain


    Checking what Saruman is up to


    Also visited the Pristine Glades that abbazabba already posted earlier, that missing floor and "Monument Valley" in the background are well worth seeing


    It's so damn tempting to jump inside, but it really smells like data-nirvana for your char


    Happy exploring everyone d;)b

  11. To abbazabba and all the other explorers here, now that servers are closing and we are forced to move, maybe we could unite on a server and go exploring together, what do you think? Or, at least as long as free server switches are allowed (this should start soon and be free to switch from one remaining server to another until the end of the year or so).

    I play on Vanyar-DE, which is closing, and i haven't decided yet where i will be going. So if any of you are on an EU server, i may be checking by, if only for a few months, for a bit of hill jumping ;)


    To contribute something, here are some shots from the dwarven area in Bree. The dwarven wagons spawn, the ride from one side to the other, the despawn.


    Permafalling when trying to exit the area


  12. Nice views abbazabba!

    Was able to get out somewhere between Fornost and Evendim today (Frosty Beverages helped), but nothing worthwile, invisible walls everywhere of course.


    Also a small exit in western Evendim, again Frosty Beverages helped. Did i mention invisible walls yet :-/


    Also been able to get out in southern shire, Warsteed was necessary, nice view to an unknown river (it seems it's alway nighttime when i'm exploring...)


    Finally i ran into a maze of invisible walls and got stuck in a perma-movement/rubberbanding, luckily i was able to /stuck out of it after a relog...


  13. I expect him to have done this on Bullroarer with that jetpack thing, i have no other explanation for this, unless he is a GM or something.

    What really wonders me is the following:

    He got out in Ered Luin really far to that Dourhand's Tavern (never seen this before)


    But their site doesn't say it's a fix me area, which is a bit strange, but if turbine is sure enough the invisible walls keep players out it may be true, so with the jetpack it could be possible to get there because it seems one can fly over the invisible walls with it.


    And he also got to the hidden shire village, which is a fix me area, so how has he done this without getting ported away?

    This must be an older video, because they also had been to the hidden village south of the lonelands and they wrote that they couldn't get any closer because of the teleporters (used google translate, can't read russian).


    That jetpack thing would then also be the answer how he got close to the hobbit and squirrel guy...

    By the way, anyone here that is still active over on lotrolife in the hobbit&squirrels thread?

  14. Spotted this place on terrain map plugin but until recently couldn't get there, managed few days ago:

    North Downs, Nan Amlug east, on the borders of map, can't get inside camp, walls forbid:



    About this second picture, did anyone ever ventured there, maybe before when most of the current invisible walls and fix me areas didn't exist:

    Above Nen Hilith:


    abbazabba, check out this video:

    Lots of cool videos in his account by the way...

    Also his page is worth checking out, more great pictures of usually unreachable places. Sadly it's written in russian language:



  15. Well mine were cheating within an admin client...


    That's exactly what makes them so interesting... :*)


    I also remember a guy who almost rounded the old Eriador map out in FixMe from the Squirrels thread, maybe the same person you were talking about, and i still have some of his screenshots saved (the links in that thread are long broken...). Not sure if it's ok to repost them here, as they aren't mine...

  16. Aylwen, i love your pictures!

    The best pictures are the ones from off-map places where there is actually something to see, like the floating town, pvmp prototype area or the Tom Bombadil oddity. These have always been the best, even the more easily reachable places like the squirrel farmer, the mysterious cemetery in the old forest or the hidden villages in southern lonelands or west of michel delving have drawn the most interest when people went out exploring...
