Lord of the Rings Online turns 16 this month!

Lord of the Rings Online, the popular MMO based on J.R.R. Tolkien’s legendary series, celebrated its 16th anniversary on April 24, 2021. The occasion marked the start of three weeks of anniversary celebrations for players from around the world. With a range of quests, challenges, and even the largest fireworks display ever, Lord of the Rings Online players have a lot to look forward to.

The Anniversary Scavenger Hunt

The Scavenger Hunt, which has been a part of previous anniversary events, is back and is one of the most anticipated quests for players who have been a part of the game’s history. Players can expect to take on a vast series of quests that hark back to the entire history of the game, with rewards and prizes for those that complete the challenges. If you have already started the Scavenger Hunt from previous years, you can pick up where you left off.

Special Quests for the Anniversary Festival


A series of special quests are available in Bree for the Anniversary festival, and players can pick them up throughout the three weeks of the event. These quests are designed to be exciting and challenging, with rewards for those who complete them.


The Methel-stage also offers special quests for Anniversary festival goers. Be sure to check in with the quest givers to see what they’re offering.

Thorin’s Gate

Thorin’s Gate features its own set of special quests for the Anniversary festival.

The Horse Races

The Party Tree

Anniversary Vendors

Special event vendors will be popping up throughout Middle-earth to offer players goodies for the anniversary celebrations. These vendors will sell merchandise from past anniversaries, so if you missed out on any in the past, now is your chance to snag them.

The Future of Lord of the Rings Online

Despite being around for 16 years, Lord of the Rings Online maintains its popularity. Its loyal player base continues to grow, and the game recently hit a 10-year player peak on Steam during last year’s 15-year anniversary celebrations.

Looking to the future, a new expansion is planned for the second half of this year, taking players to the southern regions of Middle-earth. Additionally, class refreshes and gameplay updates are expected throughout the year, with more seasonal events in the works.
