Helm-ride Prizes

***UPDATE 11/02/14*** — It has been brought to my attention that there are a number of kinships which are relatively inactive at this time. Though it has not been explicitly encouraged, players should be advised that the Helm-ride CAN be done as a solo effort, should you wish to do so. Accordingly, I have tweaked the prizes a little bit… While I initially was only offering the expansions below, I will instead be adopting a free for all prize selection. Players (or kinships) who would not find the specific prizes listed here to be of any use (perhaps you have all the expansions, or simply don’t want them) I will instead be offering ANY combination of the items in the Turbine Store (http://store.turbine.com/) up to a value of $120.00 USD. For those of you paying attention, yes, that would include a maximum of 11,500 Turbine Points, or even a full year of VIP!

The kinship that completes the Helm-ride in the shortest time will receive codes for one (1) of each of the five (5) LOTRO expansion packs. As these will be separate packages, you can give them all to one kin member, or divide them amongst yourselves as you see fit. For those of you unfamiliar with precisely what this entails, the winning kinship gets:
