As announced last week, Standing Stone Games is making The Lord of the Rings Online and Dungeons & Dragons Online‘s expansion content free until the end of August. In addition, SSG said that it would soon be providing a code to players that would let them acquire quest packs from the cash shop to keep on your account forever. Today, that promise was fulfilled.
23 LotRO quest packs (listed here) and 46 DDO quest packs (listed here) are now available for free using the code LOTROFREEQUESTS or DDOfreequests. (We’d guess that capitalization doesn’t matter, but that’s how they’re written on the corresponding pages.) These codes are valid until Aug. 31, so it’s not exactly an “act now” thing but rather “act somewhat soon.” Also, SSG will be offering sales on expansion quest packs for both games for just 99 Points in the near future.
If you’re already a loyal, paying players, there’s something for you too. VIPs in The Lord of the Rings Online will receive a vendor that gives 48 hours of town services items, a buff that negates item wear, and a buff that provides rapid crafting, while Dungeons & Dragons Online VIPs will get a permanent +1% XP boost for every member in their party other than themselves and hirelings, up to a maximum of 5%. No action is required to obtain these bonuses.
