Turbine Points


Are you enjoying Lord of the Rings Online so far? I hope you are enjoying it as much as I am! Currently I’m a free player and I love it. I think Turbine did a good job to make this game enjoyable for both subscribers/payers as for free players. But, as with everything that’s free, there’s always something to wish for. And in Lotro’s case, it’s content and loads of special items we could use in-game. So, how can you make sure you get access to all the content?

Let’s start at the beginning. Lotro knows three starter areas and an extra for free:

  • Bree-Land
  • Ered-Luin
  • The Shire
  • Lone Lands (Extra Area)

Besides these areas there are a lot more areas. You can access them, but not the extra quests in them. Only the Epic story is available in these places for free players. So, how do you get access to the other quests? Buy the expansion packs and quest packs with Turbine Points or in the online Lotro Market.

Store Items
Besides Expansion packs and Quest packs there are lot more things you can get in the in-game store for Turbine Points, like mounts, experience items, cosmetics and Food & Drinks. These are things you might find useful. You don’t NEED to buy them, but sometimes they come in handy.

Turbine Points
So, how do you get these Turbine Points? Well, there are different ways:

  • Subscription
    With a subscription you’ll receive 500 Turbine Points per month. That’s an easy deal if you can afford it.
  • Buy Points
    You can buy point cards in stores or you can buy points online.
  • Gift cards
    Turbine now also offers the possibility to buy points and send the point code to someone else, so points can now be gifted as well digitally.
  • Grind Points
    If you truly want to be a free player you can earn points by doing all the deeds you can. Mind you, you’ll need more characters (on another server) or delete a characters once you’ve done all the deeds with, cause it’s impossible to earn all the points you need on one character.

Grinding Turbine Points
If you’re looking for a way to get Turbine Points (TP) for free, you’ve come to the right place. I won’t give you them, but I can tell you how to get them in Lord of the Rings Online. While I play the game, I’ll keep you updated on how you can get them and on how many servers. If you want to know how many TP’s I’ve received so far, please check here. If you’re curious to see on what I spend my TP’s. check it out here.

  1. Can you still get the TP for visiting new areas that used to come from Gift boxes? I think that they have become auto quests…what do they reward? XP only?
