Unless it levels up with you, a la Heirloom items in WoW, I can't see it being worth the money. 

I started playing again after cancelling my swtor sub, and rolled a new Minstrel on Saturday.  By Sunday night, I was level 24.  I'm about as far from leveling efficiently as you can get, so I can imagine that someone that focused solely on leveling could have gotten even further.

Every normal man must be tempted at times to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin to slit throats.

Leveling isn't the point of this game anymore.  It serves to guide you through the content and stories, and so is pleasantly fast.  Does slow down a bit past 35 or 40 but recent changes may have ameliorated this.  I'd be fine if levels were eliminated, to be honest, so I could do some of those damn quests that I can't duo. Ohhhhh, I see.

Why am I homeless?  Why do all you motherfuckers need homes is the real question.

Weve gone through a lot of changes in the past year but one thing we can still say is were all passionate about LOTRO, too. We dont want to wreck it either. We want everybody to have as much fun as possible, but we dont want to do it by breaking the game. Anybody whos participated in an end of beta event with us knows how fun an unbalanced game can be but it cant last. Were all travelling to Mt. Doom with you and nobody wants the trip cut short, so please trust us on this. To make it perfectly clear:

We will not sell end-game gear.

Nothing in this post represents the views of my current or previous employers.

I'm not comforted by that statement.

Indeed.   Give me the option to buy and I-Win button please, if only for those stupid old deprecated instance like Carn Dum which nobody goes except for the Vol.1 Epic.
