Sorry if this is not in the correct forum..I put it here thinking that it was more a account issue. I just resubscribed after..oh...about 1 1/2 break...I had access all the way to Mirkwood. With Riders of Rohan on the horizon...if I were to wait to purchase Riders would I also get Isengard with the Riders purchase? Or do I need to purchase both? My friend (who also just resubed) and I have discussed it...I think that since both are expansions, I would need to purchase both to have access..to both. Correct??

After Riders of Rohan is released, an L65 could go straight to the Rohan zone. However, they'd probably get mowed down pretty quick. Rohan is an L75-85 area.
Answering your question in a more general sense, if you are F2P you have access to enter all of the zones and kill monsters, etc. However, if you want the quests, deeds, instances, and raids from that zone (along with any other zone-specific content) you will have to buy it.
As far as buying Rise of Isengard goes, it was on sale for 50% off a few weeks back. It may go on sale again in the future. There may be a special combo at some point in the future where you get Rise of Isengard + something else. You never know. If I were you (or anyone else, for that matter), I'd hold off on buying any zones/expansions until they are either a) on sale, or b) you're ready to play the content in that zone. At this point the preorder still has another 3 months to go, so I would definitely wait on buying Riders of Rohan for at least a couple months (unless you absolutely have to have those pre-order goodies now).
