Avoid the launch day dowloads
In an effort to make the launch of their first expansion, Mines of Moria, go as smoothly as possible Lord of the Rings Online developer Turbine Entertainment has released an updater on their website. This is the normally dreaded expansion patch that everyone has to download the day of launch - prepare early!
The downloadable updater will download the files needed to update your client to The Mines of Moria. Please note that EVEN PLAYERS WHO DO NOT PURCHASE MORIA WILL NEED TO PATCH TO THIS VERSION. There are many updates included for all players, including Book 15, UI and class changes, and so on. After you've updated your client, when the servers go live with Mines of Moria your client will apply the patch and update itself.
For more information, and to download the patch, please visit the Lord of the Rings Online official site.
