The downloadable updater means you can download our latest content update before it goes live on the Turbine servers, saving you time when they come back up on launch day! It also means you can download the patch on a computer that you don't have LOTRO installed on (i.e. your work computer), transfer the patch to a disk or device, and then run it on the computer with a LOTRO client to update it.

The downloadable updater will download the files needed to update your client to Volume II, Book 8: Scourge of Khazad-d?m. After you've updated your client, when the servers go live with Volume II, Book 8 your client will apply the patch and update itself.

Additional notes:

When you start it you need to make sure you have some Lotro gold pieces with you. This patch will only work for those whose clients are current as of today (June 19). New players will need to install the game and patch through the normal patching process before applying this update!

This file will ONLY patch the North America/AU/NZ version of the LOTRO client. If you try to apply it to the EU version, you'll get an error message.
