    I'm still looking for a Metalsmith to provide the materials and stats on Scholar Tools. I will add them to the main post, with a credit to your name and server. Thanks!

    Re: The Scholars Guide

    [Huge Worm Eyes] only drop from higher level worms. These can be found as early as North Downs, but are more common from Trollshaws, Misty Mountains, and Angmar.

    Good job on this post. We need to start looking for Spawn locations of Scholar nodes.

    Well that sort of stinks, looks like I will hold off on creating some of these Dye's. I'd hate to get just one when I could have a better chance at getting 3.

    Re: The Scholars Guide

    a quick question.

    is crafting the only way to advance scholar?

    at 8 points per item, its going to take a hell of alot of third age relics to get anywhere in this profession.

    this is my first real go at crafting, and im liking whats happening so far, but it seems slow if that is the only way to advance.

    I have noticed pots floating around for scholars, are they of importants?

    This guide was created from my own in-game crafting list and experiences, from Beta 2. All original, from the day prior to the wipe.

    Re: The Scholars Guide

    Many of the tool requirements were lowered or removed, in the last major patch we received before the wipe. It's possible that particular tool was nerfed.

    Re: The Scholars Guide

    Since your thread is for a Guide, take my data from

    http://forums.lotro.com/showthread.php?t=37085

    I would also suggest that you change the color of purple you picked, it is hard to read on the dark background. Also the grey for the black dye comment is near impossible to read.

    Another suggestions is to break down what is needed by scholars. Have a post that lists the rare items they need(like the crit items, plants, etc). Have another one that says what common ones they need(texts/relics).

    And what guide is complete without a node area listing??

    This way the thread is more like a well written paper, you have the meat of the paper, and then the Executive summaries. If someone gets an item and wants to see if a scholar uses it, they can scroll down to the section of items needed by scholars and don't have to dig through all the recipes.

    Also for up coming scholars, they can look at what is needed so that they can start saving for when they get there.

    Re: The Scholars Guide

    Locations

    Scholar Locations:

    Tier 1: South of Bree; Ost Banar Ruin and Marsh Queen Spider Ruins SouthEast

    Easy to solo at 15 both locations

    Tier 2: South Guard Ruins SE of Bree, Wight Keep South Barrows

    Can solo both locations but must be careful of adds

    Tier 3: Lone lands; Half Orc Keep east of Forsaken Inn and Wight Ruins Fornost Fields North Downs

    First spot soloable to some extent, second has lvl 27+ wights... so consider half orc keep the place to camp which means we need more tier 3 locations PRIOR to launch.

    Tier 4: Trollshaws zone; North of Thorendon to the mountain ruins. lvl 38-40 mobs

    Also Ost Durgonn north of the t in south (T)rollshaws just past the bridge from lonelands.

    Great thread, thank you.

    I'm new to scholar, and don't see mention of the advancement quests.

    Having a problem finding the Lore of Hobbits book in the swamp. Found the others circling numerous times... any clues?

    The hobbits book is west of the cart. Its on a small island. Just run due west of the cart, and spam the Delete key.

    I'm still working on the quest section.
