    I revived the original links post from greenie30 and reformated it just a bit. I also added some links to general overviews of the Rune-keeper and several Lorebook guides.

    If there is anything else you'd like to see added, please shoot me a PM.

    Thanks!

    This looks very well organized. Unfortunately, many of the links no longer work. Time for a revival?

    Re: New Rune-Keeper? Questions? Start Here!

    Agreed, just started an RK alt, came here for info ... nearly every link is broken/thread is gone.

    That needs to be fixed before this fall or the wails of the ahem ... new players will make me deaf.

    Looks like most of the linked posts didn't get bumped and were wiped. That bites because I have recently started playing my RK again. :-(

    I will def check out the "... for real" posts. Thanks for the advice.

    This thread needs a serious cleaning, such a shame to have lost so many helpful posts, all because of a purge.

    Yeah, we should convert some common knowledge into lorebook posts.

    This post was put up before a "forum pruning," when they get rid of a bunch of older posts. So yeah, most of the links are dead now, unfortunately.

    Re: New Rune-Keeper? Questions? Start Here!

    THIS is one of the main reasons I can't even get started in LotRO - ALL of the links are broken and I get really frustrated trying to learn anything. They should either keep the links up and stop "pruning" them, or just take the forums down altogether.

    Re: New Rune-Keeper? Questions? Start Here!

    I updated the post and deleted all the "broken" links. As you can see, we've lost a lot of player based knowledge.

    If you have any links to fill in the gaps, or any suggestions, please let me know.

    Re: New Rune-Keeper? Questions? Start Here!

    I am wondering which profession is a good match for the RK. I am temped to go with Jeweller, just because, but wondering if Historian isn't the way to go.

    Re: New Rune-Keeper? Questions? Start Here!

    I went with historian on my RK. Being able to keep yourself supplied with morale, power, etc. pots not to mention the RK inlays and enamels is pure win.

    Re: New Rune-Keeper? Questions? Start Here!

    Some great information here, thank you to those who contributed!. I will certainly keep it all in mind while in game.

    I would like to ask the higher RK's for some tips, the do's and don'ts shall we say of being a rune keeper.. It seems like quite a confusing and in depth class so i want to get as much out of it as possible.. any tips and tricks not already mentioned (if there are any lol) would be greatly appreciated.

    I went with Historian on my LM before i created my RK so now i am stumped with what to do, i would probably make her a jeweller, but historian would be my first choice, if i didn't already have a kindred scholar lolz...

    Re: New Rune-Keeper? Questions? Start Here!

    Hi, so I got a lvl 26 RK on Snowbourn and I got a couple of questions
    1. does de rune-stone dps affect your dmg or is it only when attacking meele?

    2. Should I use items with less armour, but with better stats? (will, fate)

    3. Any general tips when pulling 3 or more mobs?



    Thanks for answers in advance
