    How do you know which deeds /traits are in which area?

    I am kind of new and don't fully understand how deeds work and how to go about getting them ? And how do I know which area to go to to obtain certain specific deeds? And can someone also fill me in on traits and how they work and how they are obtained?Thanks ...

    Welcome to LOTRO!

    Deeds are big challenges that are used to prove your worty of specific rewards. They frequently ask you to complete a series of tests, discover some important places or kill a humungous number of certain kind of enemies. You can find what deeds you have underway by looking under the Deed panel (icon in the toolbar with gandalf face). Each deed on that panel say what requires to complete them, how close you are to complete them & what are the rewards. Some deeds unlock others so you will find lot of nice surprices if you are dedicated.

    The direct rewards can be traits, skills, tittle, barter items & TP. Some deeds have more than 1 reward. Also, other deeds have indirect rewards. You have to unlock them to use certain gear or services of the game. If you are looking for specific rewards but you dont know what deed gives them &/or havent start that deed, you can look at one of many websites that list all deeds that give that reward. Lotro Wiki is on of those sites: http://lotro-wiki.com/index.php/Deeds .

    As a note on unlocking further deeds:

    • Every slayer deed has two tiers. Usually these will require killing 120 of an enemy, and then 240 of an enemy. Numbers can vary, especially at the lower levels. The first tier will give you a title and 5 TP, second tier will give you a virtue and 10 TP.
    • Every reputation deed has four tiers. I believe the rep requirements are 10k, 20k, 25k, and 30k for each deed. TP awards are 5, 10, 15, and 20. The tiers all include a title, and at least two tiers offer passive bonuses (cheaper stable rides and cheaper vendor prices in that region).
    • Racial slayer deeds have either two or three tiers. They work similarly to regular slayer deeds but will work in any region. Each tier will award a racial trait.
    • Some deeds are called "metadeeds". These are unlocked when you complete entire collections of other deeds. The best example I can give is "Saviour of Khazad-Dum". Completing all the deeds in certain instances in Moria will complete a "metadeed" for that instance (or set of two instances). The "Saviour of Khazad-Dum" deed requires you to complete all of these metadeeds awarded from completing all regular deeds in almost every instance in Moria. The rewards for these deeds are somewhat rarer. They tend to be mounts. (Saviour of Khazad-Dum gives a cool looking black goat for example.)

    In general, you get a deed when you take the first step towards completing that deed. There is a few exceptions, the so-called hidden deeds, which will only show up in your deed log when you complete them, but the vast majority of deeds becomes visible when you begin progressing them. For example, a deed to slay 60 wolves in a specific area will become visible in your deed log when you slay your very first wolf in that area.

    Your most important tool for keeping track of your deeds is your deed log. You can access it by holding shift and pressing L or by clicking the little book icon in your menu bar, next to the ring icon of the quest log. The deed log will give you information on all non-hidden deeds you're currently working on and also on all deeds you have already finished. (There is a toggle for that at the top of each page.)
    There is different sections in your deed log. Each section can have several pages. The first section (and the one which is opened by default when you call up your deed log) is the class + social section. Class deeds generally require you to use specific skills a given number of times. Social deeds usually (but not always) are associated with festivals. Reputation deeds are also in this section of the deed log and require you to attain certain stages of reputation with the various in-game factions.
    The second section is landscape deeds. The most obvious type of landscape deeds is slayer deeds: defeat x number of y kind of mob. To find those, it is a good idea to kill one mob of every kind in every region of the game. The next type of landscape deed is quest deeds. Simply do x number of quests in the associated region. Then there is also explorer deeds. Those give you a list of locations in an area and you have to find those locations and walk up to them. Note that you can only open up landscape deeds in regions where you have access to the associated questpack.
    Other sections of the deed log hold the deed information for skirmishes, instances or hobbies.

    The left-hand page of the quest log lists all the deeds you're working on that fall into that sub-section of the quest log. Click one of the deeds to pull up more specific information on it. The right-hand page shows you that information.
    The upper half of the page tells you what to do to finish the deed. For skill, quest and slayer deeds you will see a bar here that fills up as you progress the quest. Only a blue bar can continue to progress. Class deeds typically have daily limits. You can only progress them for a certain amount of skill uses. After that number of uses, the bar turns yellow and will not move any further. Every day at the server reset (3:00 AM EST) all deed bars will return to the blue, progressable state.
    The lower half of the right-hand page shows you which rewards you'll get when you finish the deed. Those rewards range from titles to relics to mounts to reputation and almost always include 5-20 TP.

    Traits are usually gained by completing deeds as well, although some are rewards for your class quests at level 15, 30, 45 and 60. (Note that the whole trait system will change when HD releases in a few weeks.) There is four different types of traits. Virtues boost various character stats and can be improved to (at the moment) level 16. Racial traits usually give characters a small advantage in battle (e.g. by slightly increasing the damage of a specific weapon type) or open up special racial skills (like a port to the homelands of your race). Class traits improve or modify your class skills. They come in three different colours: red, blue and yellow. If you use several class traits of the same colour, you will get additional benefits right up to unlocking the so-called capstone skill of a given trait line. Legendary traits are either necessary for using a cap-stone skill or are really powerful improvements or skills for your character. These are typically earned by doing special quests.

    Once you have earned a trait and want to use it, you need to go to a bard NPC (some of the trainer NPCs for your class offer the same service, though). Bards are found in most major towns. Right-click the bard to talk to them and choose "Manage your traits" from their menu. You'll be shown your available trait slots and a list of all traits you can use, broken down into the four categories. Each trait can only be dragged into a trait slot of the same category. Equip whatever traits you want to use, pay the bard and re-activate your toggle-skills (which get automatically de-activated when using the trait interface). You can see a list of your equipped and non-equipped traits by opening the traits interface (default key J or click the wizard icon in your menu bar) anytime, even without a bard.

    A special case is skills that are earned by completing deeds (like racial or cap-stone skills). Those will remained greyed out and un-usable until you equip the associated trait at a bard. This can mean that you're limited in how many such skills you can use at any given time by how many trait slots you have available.

    I hope this answers enough of your questions to get you started but if it doesn't, feel free to ask for more information. If you include your class and race, the forum community may even point you towards some of your racial and class deeds.
