You might asking yourself, Drac why are you posting about LOTRO over here on DDO Players! Simple, we have Ravenloft coming, we know that it’s supposed to be this year. but do not details beyond that. If your like me, you will be curious as to how much you have to save to purchase it, This is what they are doing with Mordor over at LOTRO.

So we have a range of 40-130. If we judge by amount of quests, I know we can’t judge the “Quests” part as we don’t have them, we have dungeons, but other than that, I can see some cosmetics and pets something like that.

We can speculate that we have 2 raids and a wilderness area judging by this. (This of course could be subject to change)

 

If we fire up the way-back machine we can see pricing for Menace Of The Underdark :

So can we judge by that this will be the pricing? or will it be a total different pricing structure? What do you think?

Either way, I need to start saving, maybe sell plasma if that’s the pricing we will see the “Top Tier” package.

  1. The Standard and Collector’s Editions of the Ravenloft expansion should have the same pricing as their LOTRO counterparts, but I doubt the third tier of the Ravenloft editions (if there is one) will be $129.99. DDO has never offered something that expensive during an expansion, to my knowledge.

      I agree, I would think we would see79.99, 59.99, 29.99 maybe.. something along those lines.. I can’t even think of ANYTHING that they could add on that would make it worth a 129.99 price tag!

      • Exactly. There will probably be Base, Standard, and Collector’s Editions of the Ravenloft expansion, with pricing that matches the three MOTU editions.

  2. For comparison, there were Base, Standard and Collector’s Editions of the Menace of the Underdark expansion with the most expensive Edition being $79.99. http://ddowiki.com/page/Menace_of_the_Underdark

    When you purchased either MotU or SC you could purchase 11,000 DDO points for $59.99 and there was an upgrade offer for SC for $39.99.

    Many players spent $159.97 on SC.

  4. I am going to buy the Expansion with DDO Points when available. I am taking a stand with this release like I am with the Mordor one. Prices are way too high for what you get. And what you get is mainly useless to me. Have been a VIP with DDO for many years, so they have my money each month. But these prices and lack of incentive and content in those packs is just taking the rise.
