Mirkwood release date…

December 1st is the date – seems about right as I saw another blogger with a beta invite…

So being a life-time member I like the option to get 2 extra char slots, the shared storage, and the goat all for $20!  Shared storage is 20 slots, so that’s pretty slick!

While I can see some folks might be upset regarding the $40 for the expansion + explorer pack – I’m pretty happy they continue to give perks to lifetime members.  I expected to pay $20 for the expansion which I think with the content and skirmishes will be well worth it, so the other stuff is just gravy for me.  Now if I had to drop $40 for it – I’d be a little more skeptical.

  1. It’s $40? I was reading it as it’s $19.99 for SOM + the adventurer’s pack. Hmmmmm… investigation is needed!

  2. Ah reading further down I see you’re right. Great… Merric is totally going to want the extra character slots… 😛

  3. yeah, it was a little confusing so I might be wrong – but that’s how I read it. But you can also switch to a multi-month plan and get one of the 2 for free.

  4. I’m pretty sure lifetime members just pre-order and get all the bonuses free. That’s how Merric is understanding it.

  5. hahaha I’m sorry to keep commenting: I found this dev post on the forums:

    They’re calling it a little backwards to me. Basically they’re saying if you preorder the Adventure Pack thing you get Mirkwood free. It will only be $19.99 for us lifetimers.

    • yeah, when you go (if you can get there) to your MyAccount section it makes MUCH more sense. There’s a single customized option that tells you what you can do. Then once you do it, you see in your subscriptions all the things you expect. It just is a really “interesting” way to roll it out.
