    Meghan "Patience" Rodberg over on the Lord of the Rings Online, Turbine Forums, gave an explanation detailing the In-Game Tokens and Rewards that those who Pre-Order or Early Upgrade the upcoming Mines of Moria expansion will receive. She also gave us a sneak peek at the eight items we can turn the tokens in for!

    Explanation of Mines of Moria in-game tokens and rewards

    There's been some confusion about the in-game rewards, so hopefully this will clear it up.

    Each player that purchases the Mines of Moria™ Pre-Order gets one in-game item token. If a player purchases the Complete Edition, they get two in-game item tokens. If they purchase the Collector’s Edition or participate in the Early Upgrade, they get three in-game item tokens. It all adds together (so a player who Pre-Orders the Collector's Edition gets a total of 4 in-game item tokens).

    Once Moria launches, these in-game item tokens will appear in characters' inventories as Ithildin Coins. Players will be able to take these coins to a vendor and choose any of 8 items (each costing 1 coin) when Moria launches on 11/18.

    Players are free to stock up on multiples of the same item if they so choose (such as potions).

    Pre-order: Anyone who Pre-Orders (including the Early Upgrade) also gets the Cloak of Sunset and the Moria Expeditionary title. If they pre-order from GameStop, they also get the Deep Miner’s Helm and the Seeker of Khazad-dum title (these are exclusive through GameStop).

    All of these are live in the game, so a current player that applies a Pre-Order or Early Upgrade to their account will get these when they redeem their keys.

    Early Upgrade: Players who upgrade through Turbine receive the Cloak of Durin’s Crown when Moria launches on 11/18. This is an exclusive only available to Early Upgrade customers.

    We hope this gives a better idea of what the items are! See below for screenshots.

    I'm excited about the Bird and Mouse! I cannot wait to see them in action.

    How about you all, what do you think about these items?

    I think the pets are a very cool addition.
