The Lord of the Rings Online has evolved a lot since launch. With several new free content updates and one expansion, we figured it was time to take another look at the game and see how it has come along over the years. This week we examine the changes the game received from the Book 12 and 13 updates in the second part of our "LOTRO - Past to Present" series.

The great thing about MMORPGs is that there is always room for improvement and Turbine headed back to Angmar after launch and said “we can do better,” and they did. By making another pass at the region, the developers re-worked several quests to fit more with the dark lore behind the home of the Witch King. What sort of quests am I referring to you ask? Well, when you are sent to the land that one of the most evil characters in Tolkien’s lore called home, you expect to be asked to battle the dark forces of evil, the bane of the land, the plague of mankind. You know what I’m referring to: BOARS!!!
