LoTRO Lord of the Rings Online Where are the Evil Races?



Okay, so you can’t play as the Evil races of middle earth as your main character. Turbine decided that allowing players to side with Sauron would not be keeping with the spirit of the novels. And considering that the evil races are usually soulless slaves to the dark powers, independent player characters running around would be difficult to explain through the lore.

Fortunately, in order to maintain some type of PvP experience in the game, Turbine is creating several areas where players can play as monsters to earn rewards for their main characters. This interesting innovation looks likely to provide a very entertaining variation to the game, and allow players to try out play styles distinct from their character while earning rewards to help them on their quest.
