Is dlc worth it?
I've recently started playing lotr online with a friend of mine while he thought it was ok, I found it great and just wondered if all the quest packs and expansions are worth the money?

I would think about it before buying. Maybe at least until you get to the level where you can actually use the DLC.

Or you could just do a bunch of deeds and buy them with Turbine Points

I've been playing since the Beta, and it's my opinion that yes. The DLC is worth it. But I'd do like the others say and play a bunch first. You can get pretty far without needing any DLC in the game, and who knows how many Turbine points you'll have by then? It'd lower the price a bit, at least. :)

1- think twice about quest packs they are barely worth it for what you get

2- There is no reason to buy anything through Steam. The LOTRO Client contains all material and only requires "key codes" to be entered at myaccount.turbine.com to unlock it.

3- Consider The Quad Pack -- from the Trubine store (either store.turbine.com or store.lotro.com)
The quead pack gives you all 4 historical expansions -- Mines of Moria, Mirkwood, Rise of Isengard and Riders of Rohan. The expansions include ALL Quests, Instances, Skirmishes, etc. -- you don't have to buy the individually.

The 7th anniversary of LOTRO is coming in April -- watch for sales and special deals!

4- Consider going VIP for a month or two. This will unlock many things, like the gold cap, inventory bags, AH slots, etc. as well as many lower-level quest areas, without the need to purchase ANY quest packs.

5- As mentioned, you can earn (or spend real cash to buy) Turbine Points, and then buy the quest packs with them.

I don't really agree about quest packs barely being worth their price; You will need a few quest packs in order to level up enough to enter Moria (the first expansion). And the quest packs give you access to quests in different areas for the same level range, so you can follow a different route while levelling.

I do however suggest that you very carefully select which quest packs to buy when, as there are overlapping ranges, and some quest packs are more fun/better suited for levelling than others.

Besides the quad expanion pack (That covers everything from L50 up, more or less), you might want to get the Samwise Gamgee starter pack if you do not go VIP. It includes a horse for all your characters (current & future), an extra bag, and the gold cap removal.
