    New Player Guides

    Hey there,

    If you're a new LOTRO player there's a good chance you've got a lot of questions. Some of those questions can be answered here in the New Player Questions forum and some can even be answered in-game with the Advice channel. However, we're also building a selection of New Player Guides for classes, the LOTRO Store and more -- all scheduled to release over the coming weeks.

    You can find the New Player Guide hub here and our Eight Essential MMO Terms guide here!

    Re: New Player Guides

    Good afternoon,

    I signed up fr the game, and this is my first time playing it after it is "free to play." I downloaded, however, I cannot create a character. It says that when I sing up I have two character slots. However, as I said before, I cannot create any characters.

    Can anyone help me with this issue?

    Thank you.

    Some people who are using DirectX 10 or 11 are experiencing this issue. On the character screen, click the Options button, and under Graphics change it to DirectX9. Save it, then quite LotRO and restart the client. Hopefully it will work for you after that.

    do i need to download pando media booster to download the game? i tried the regular link when i first sign up but it was on starting download for a while so i closed my browser to try again. i went back and found i couldn't use that button anymore...so i went to the download page and clicked on high resolution download, will the game still work that way?

    I had posted an Improving Your Gaming Experience thread on Riddermark that I thought would be helpful for new players as well.

    If shameless self-promotion is against CoC, then please delete this post. Otherwise... well, I started a blog not long ago, it's linked in my signature. I've been adding content daily so far, and it is built for maximum accessibility. There is an ever-growing glossary that is linked to extensively from within the posts, for example. My goal is to share my own observations from within the game at a fairly high level, but to do so in such a way that someone who has never played any MMO can still follow it if they try. Hopefully it will help some of you.

    Anybody know how to make fellowships easier? Anytime I want to invite somebody I have to remember their name, then open the social panel, find the name and invite them. Is there a keyboard shortcut or something? Any help is welcome!

    You can right click on player names in chat to add to fellowship.

    Also /invite Playername works as well

    Does anybody know how to get rid of a weapon that you don't want? I'm stuck with this rusted sword that hardly does any damage.

    Re: New Player Guides

    I know this is a noob question, but I'm already at level 27 and still I'm wondering if there is a shortcut key for switching weapons. Thanks!!! I'm starting to love this game.

    Re: New Player Guides

    You can place your weapons and shield in your bars and switch while fighting.
    You can also change your stance that fits by the weapons you use.

    Ludovit,
    as far as I know there are no Czech/Slovak or other languages chat channels, only some German or French speaking servers.
    You may wish to search for Kinships, once I saw one "Czech Royal Knights" (Withywindle?), there are some Polish, Russian, Greek Kinships as well.

    I loved these guides... but the links to them are now broken, it seems.
    Do they work for others? If not, can somebody please fix these links?

    Thank you.

    PDF Manual?

    Quickstart guide recommends downloading the PDF Manual from Lotro.com to answer all my questions. Like how do you enter 'decorate mode' in your house?
    I don't mind downloading the guide, but I can't find it anywhere. Help?

    That manual is a bit out of date. You can find directions for where it's already hidden on your computer, and links to a lot of other, in many cases better, guides, here:

    My guess is that the guide was removed with the forum revamp a while ago. I can tell you that you can enter decoration mode by clicking one of the icons at the edge of your minimap (it looks like a bundle of flowers and is only visible when in your house or garden). For other questions you can check out my guide or ask on these forums.
