PSA: Weatherstock 2013 – Update LOTRO Today!

It may be deserted now, but just you wait! (5 year old screenshot FTW.)

Friendly reminder to all those interested in the greatest player-run music festival / concert to ever evolve in an MMO.

And it’s on a Free 2 Play game, so it won’t cost a cent to just log in and listen.

Weatherstock will be happening in some five day’s time. They even have a Twitter account going.

It’s at an insomniac timing for my part of the world, but I think it’s doable. It’s a Saturday weekend so I just need to nap between GW2 WvW reset and wake up in time. Wish me and my alarm clock luck!

From last year’s experience, expect the event to stretch a little, just in case. Don’t go scheduling a raid at 5pm EST if you want to attend the whole thing.

Venue is, of course, Weathertop or the ruins of the Tower of Amon Sul, on the Landroval server.

You want to hit the human town of Bree by whatever means you have, and then jog or ride down the southeast road until you zone into the Lone Lands. Very nice people will be waiting by the inn there to escort your squishy self up if you are insufficiently leveled.

This time I’m going to be prepared and updating LOTRO beforehand.

So who can beat me in the number of iterations to sit through?

I’m actually impressed, the launcher hasn’t crashed or stalled. Stay away this length of time from an NCSoft game like Aion and rest assured you will never be able to log in again without deleting it all wholesale. (Makes me tempted to also update Turbine’s DDO and peek in too, but argh, I have no more time for multiple MMOs…)

I may or may not be able to diagnose and solve last year’s black screen screenshot issue in the time remaining. Let’s hope all these updates just magically fix the problem.

Thank you to Beorbrand for the tip-off in my comments!
