The Lord of the Rings Online: Shadows of Angmar Book 9 to Book 10 patch
Our players have often asked if there's a way to pre-patch while the servers are down, or download a patch on a different computer and then transfer it to the one their game is installed on via USB drive, CDR, etc.
We're please to offer a downloadable patch for Book 10! This patch will update clients from Book 9 to Book 10. New players will still need to go through the normal patching process - this patch will only work for those whose clients are current as of today (August 16). It will not work for Roheryn.
The downloadable patch means you can download it and patch your client before the update goes live on the servers, saving you time when they come back up. 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.
Please note that this first version of the downloadable patch does not contain movies (approximately 44Mb), and you'll still need to patch those through the normal process - but if you've pre-patched already, you'll save yourself quite a bit of time on patch day!
IMPORTANT NOTE: This file will ONLY patch the North America/AU/NZ version of the LOTRO client. DO NOT apply this patch to a European client as it can potentially corrupt your installation.
