Double your pleasure with double xp weekend.

In case all of the hype for Lord of the Rings Online expansion, the Mines of Moria, hasn't brought your Balrog hating blood to a boiling point, Turbine is offering up a special weekend event to push you over the edge. Starting October 30th, they are offering the following:

* Get +25% bonus experience on mob kills for everyone who logs in and plays. Former players are invited to level up their characters ready for Moria.

* During the LOTRO welcome back weekend, many monsters throughout Middle-earth will drop rare items when defeated. Exchange these rare items for a special gift box that will reward you with a variety of in-game items to aid you in your adventures in Middle-earth.

* Have the chance to test your wits against the Riddle-master and have your outfit discerned by the Fashion Maven. Keep an eye out for these colourful characters as they will be roaming the streets of Middle-earth again.

And did I mention the best part for those of us that may have strayed from our Guardians, Champions, Mistrels and Burglars (yes I know there are more classes, but these are the ones I've played)? The best part about that weekend is that Turbine is making it free to returning players. So if you are looking for something to do over the Halloween weekend, stop by and check out Lord of the Rings Online and prep for the new expansion.

Speaking of expansions, and the future of LotRO, read the latest Developer Diary that covers what lies in store for our favorite middle earth game.
