About Directorate

Directorate is a Rank 10 Kinship on the Crickhollow server founded 2/6/11.  We have a core group of about 6-10 players - active daily in team speak. We maintain a kin forum, a kin house, and we have our own Team Speak 3, and Discord voice communication platforms.  Many of us have capped toons in all classes.  Our roster has 240 toons on it with an equal balance of male and female kin members, but our defining characteristic is that we are knowledgeable about the game and kind to all as we travel throughout middle-earth. Directorate is an end game kin but newcomers to Lotro are welcome. Most of us are from the United States however, we have members in Canada and Europe. Directorate has an ongoing relationship with an end game Raiding group.  To join Directorate ~ you must send an in game tell to Paladiran.

Update 33.1.1 Release Notes

Here are the Release Notes for Update 33.1.1, released on Wednesday, July 27, 2022.

News and Notes

Raid groups are no longer prevented from advancing quests / accomplishments or acquiring quest items on landscape.

Players who are not in a contributing fellowship will no longer receive credit or glory for PvMP kills or by healing PvMP participants.

Level 140 rewards for the further adventures of Elladan and Elrohir are updated in the barter vendor.

We have corrected an issue with the new Battle Tasks for the Free Peoples in the Ettenmoors. The issue has been addressed, but all advancement toward the metadeeds has been reset, and you will need to start these tasks again.



The Brawler trait trees have been reset for Update 33.1.1. If you play a Brawler please re-spend your class trait points and save your preferred specs.

The Brawler trait "Plant Feet" was incorrectly set up to require specialization in the Fulcrum (Blue line) and level 45, while the capstone trait "Gut Punch" was accidentally omitting these requirements. This has been corrected, so "Gut Punch" now requires Blue line specialization while "Plant Feet" no longer requires specialization.

Quests, Instances, and Adventure Areas
