Our friends at Turbine hooked us up with a handful of screenshots from the newly minted cash store as well. Among the things we already knew about, like character slots and vault storage, is the ability to pay off Kinship and personal house maintenance fees with Turbine points as opposed to having to shell out in-game cash. For those who are unable to get in and play as often as others to raise the gold for fees, this could be the key to turning deserted neighborhoods into bustling hubs.
Be sure to check out the gallery of images for the upcoming Lord of the Rings Online cash shop below if you're curious. Also, we'll be checking in with Turbine at E3 to get even more news on their plans for LotRO for the future. In the meantime, we'll be over here, patiently staring at our mailboxes, waiting for our beta invites to come in.
