This edition of the game is great if your just starting or getting into it, the 2000 Turbine points are really useful to get over those those basic limitations like the currency cap (which is limited to 5 gold)and improving your inventory space, but leaving you with enough leftover to buy a few fun things like cosmetic outfits or more character slots. The Horse included in the Mithril Edition is surprising useful too because it allows you to speed across the low level areas and level rather fast, aswell as keeping the game fun when you've got to make a long journey by making it much quicker, essential as normal steeds require level 20 to ride whereas this one only requires level 5. Another little bonus is buying this edition gives you an extra character slot,giving you 3 rather than just 2.
The game itself is really good, its got some good features like a Instance finder and player houses and a main storyline that runs alongside the events of the book, allowing you to take part in some of the key events and meet all the characters. The world is big but restricted unless your a VIP as free players need to buy zones that aren't involved in the main storyline with turbine points, which arnt too expensive compared to a subscription in the long run. Overall I'de rate the game around a 7/10 for its game play and around a 9/10 for its story, which is brilliant if your a fan of the books.
