Standing Stone Games has opened up a new pair of legendary progression servers for The Lord of the Rings Online. As we learned a few weeks ago, the servers are called Shadowfax and Treebeard, and they offer faster and slower progression, respectively. Specifically, Shadowfax offers 50% bonus XP and 20% bonus Virtue XP, with new content unlocking every two months; Treebeard cuts XP gains by 40% and unlocks new content every five to six months.

The servers also implement a new Landscape Difficulty option, which offer 10 difficulty levels for open-world enemies. They can be set from "Normal" to "Deadly +6" by talking to Berthadan outside the Prancing Pony in Bree. Deadly difficulty levels will sometimes place the Eye of Sauron on you, which gives you negative random effects for about a minute. You'll earn XP and Virtue XP bonuses for playing on harder difficulties and you can earn titles by reaching level thresholds at Hard or Deadly difficulties.

Shadowfax and Treebeard are available to VIPs by selecting them from the launcher. Learn more about the new servers on the LotRO site.
