DST difference EU – US
Oct 30 – Nov 5 all-day

The US and the EU moves off Daylight Saving Time (DST) at different dates.

  • The EU moves the clocks back one hour on the morning (2AM) of the last Sunday in October. In 2016, this is October 30th.
  • The US moves the clocks back one hour on the morning (2AM) of the first Sunday in November. In 2016, this is November 6th.

Between October 30th and November 6th, the time difference between the EU and the US is one hour LESS than it usually is. One example: While the difference between UK/London time and US/Boston time is usually 5 hours, this week it will only be 4 hours. This has a lot of impact on event planning in LOTRO, so make sure you know which times you use.

Here is more information on DST and event planning in LOTRO.
