It would seem that the hunger pangs for starting brand new in an MMORPG are strong, noisy, and require lots of meat. Lord of the Rings Online is the latest to heed the call of this ravening desire with the announcement of LotRO Legendary World, which is a progression server by any other name.
The Legendary Server will bring players back to the very start of the MMORPG’s launch with 50 as the level cap and Angmar as the high-level location. That said, this server will bear a few difference from the launch version, including the ability to play as a High Elf and the Boerning class, and the ability to take advantage of the game’s trait trees. Updates to the server’s content are slated to come every four months after that.
The Legendary Server will only be accessible to those who are subscribers to LotRO. That said, you will not have to purchase any additional Quest Packs or other expansions a second time, as those will unlock as the server’s story hits the appropriate milestones.
The LotRO Legendary World is set to open at some point this fall. More information is expected soon, but for now an FAQ can be read here.
We’re almost positive that there will be more than a few fans of LotRO pleased to see this news. Progression servers do seem to have something of a strong draw for many and we hope those interested in starting completely fresh have a great time once this Legendary World opens up.
