    Hi all

    Until recently i have been thoroughly addicted to World of Warcraft and have tremendously enjoyed the many hours, days....weeks even, spent in Azeroth. However, like many raiding guilds mine has suffered drastically since the release of The Burning Crusade and i find that with the decline in number of guild members and activity in the remaining ones i have been enjoying the game less and less. Raiding is of course still entertaining, but with having nothing to do between raids (there never seems to be enough people interested in doing heroic instances) i feel the time has come to move onto another MMORPG.

    Having been a big J.R.R. Tolkein fan since childhood, it would seem logical to give Lord of the Rings: Shadow of Angmar a try. I seem to recall hearing that there are free trial DVD's available, so was hoping that someone could let me know where i may be able to get one from. Or are there downloadable trials like there were/are for WoW, and if so does anyone have a spare trial key that they wouldn't mind me having. If so i would greatly appreciate it if you could send me a PM with the key and an address of a site that i can download the trial/client from.

    Thanks for reading.
    Luke

    Apparently if you know somebody who has purchased the game it comes with a buddy key that is good for a 10 day free trial.

    I went into Game yesterday and saw a DVD copy of Lord of the Rings: Shadows of Angmar game for £1.99, but it only came with 10 day trial, so maybe you should check that out.

    Thanks very much for the offer. However i was not aware that along with the buddy key i would need to install the game from the the cd's/dvd's, thinking that i would be able to download the client. Therefore the code would actually do me no good, but cheers anyway :smashin:

    You can download the client from fileplanet...

    http://www.fileplanet.com/169391/160000/fileinfo/Lord-of-the-Rings-Online-Client-[European]-v1.12

    Its 5GB though and doesnt include the high res texture pack (which can be found on a well known torrent site.

    Theres also an 800MB patch required that can be found on the LOTRO web site some where.


    I would just get the retail anyway - you wont be disappointed.

    Hello all.

    I realise I'm very new here, but I plan to pick up a copy of the game this weekend and would love to get a trial key for my wife to try it too (looking to leave WoW).

    I was wondering if anyone was maintaining a bank for taking in and giving out trial keys (I remember doing this for Guild Wars years ago with another forum).

    Thanks.

    Thinking of buying this game, but I cannot see anywhere if you are required to make a creditcard/timecard payment as soon as you've installed it to start playing.
    Anyone know if you get a free month to start with, then are required to make some form of payment?

    Thanks

    Edit: Seems you do get 30 days free trial.

    Edit: Just been to PC world and bought it ;) (£24.99 collect at store)
    If anyone else needs a buddy key PM me and its yours. GONE

    Me next! Me next! I want one! I've been trying to find one online for hours. I had a buddy key from a friend, but it refuses to work. So if any of you out there can spare one, feel free to send me a PM with it. *bows* You will have my eternal gratitude.

    Blimey this thread is drawing in a lot of new Forum users or is it?

    Some unscrupleous users apparantly are getting buddykeys to go into the game and spam offers of selling Gold and PL'ing to everyone they can before getting reported and their account closed which if a free buddykey ain't costing them anthing!

    Be careful who you pass your buddykey onto.
