It is with a heavy heart that I announce that I have removed LOTROHerald from the AppStore.

I come to this decision after a lot of soul searching. With the core character information part of the app no longer working due to changes with the game servers and the lottery being effectively rolled into the game client itself, I see no compelling reason to keep it going.

It has been an amazing 5 years. Thanks to all the players who used it and we'll see you in game (mostly on Brandwine).

LOTROHerald is a combined THE LORD OF THE RINGS ONLINE™ game server status and myLOTRO character viewer app in one package.

It provides World-wide game server status including North American, European, and Russian servers.


You can view your game Characters AND Kinships including Free Peoples (Freeps) AND Servants of the Eye (Creeps) without being in the game. This information is currently limited to game characters on the North American and European servers but may be expanded when other servers become available.


Your game character information is retrieved from the my.lotro.com servers and may be cached or delayed for up to 24 hours. So if you do not see new equipment or levels gained, don't panic, they should update within 24 hours. If they do not please email me and we will work with Turbine to resolve the problem.
