    Loremaster Gear - By Level and Zone

    With so many quests and zones from which to choose, how can the discerning Loremaster decide where to adventure? This thread will help you choose how best to spend your time in Middle-Earth.

    Below is a listing of gear for Loremasters, organized by level, zone, and quest name, with additional categories for crafted and looted items. Not sure which quests are worth taking? Frustrated by dropping 200 silver on the Auction Hall, only to get a better cloak as a quest reward the next day? Look no further than this thread to plan how to spend your gold and where to quest.

    I define "loremaster gear" as items which provide bonuses to Vitality, Fate, and Will. It's pretty slow going researching this all by myself, so please post below with gear you know of and I'll put it on the list.

    Loremaster Gear for Levels 21-30

    • Brilliant Silver Ring (18) - +11 Vit, +6 Fate (critical result of Glittering Silver Ring)

    • Twistwood Staff (27) - +16 Will, +16 Vit (crafted by woodworker)

    Good luck doing Noisome Neighbors at 23. I wouldn't even attempt it solo at that level.

    The area where they spawn has a bunch of higher level undead, and Bog Walkers. Both types are immune to our mezz. The Bog Walkers are also normally stealthed.

    I wouldn't worry too much about gear at that level, but that's just my opinion.

    i did that quest just recently L25-, so it may be doable at L23. i may have done it at 23, but not sure. bog walkers were quite a pain, as i recall. but, ya, i just go thru the quests, and upgrade with whatever gear comes along - usually any piece gets replaced in a level or two anyway...

    They may have changed the area with the Evendim patch. I know Ost Guruth got an update. There were complaints that the Norburg didn't drop their legs enough. I remember being frustrated trying to do that one, so it may have been a combination of the aggro and lack of drops that led me to think it was mislabelled level wise.

    i only noticed a change in drop rate after the patch. i just adjusted to getting used to not every mob dropping what i needed, so i would have to kill more than the number in the quest goal. also, playstyle is a big factor in what quests can be done at which level. some players just roxx. that is why i cruise the boards - looking for their wisdom. ...

    Reformatted and reconceptualized so that all levels of LM gear can be listed here.

    C'mon, this thread needs some love if it's going to help people! A Loremaster in this thread complains that he hasn't changed clothes in 13 levels, because he can't find any.

    I hereby dub this thread "sticky worthy".

    And yes, both the spawn rate of the norbyg as well as the legs' drop rate is now sane. Thank "Bob".

    You may also want to edit your original post and change the Subject to something more comprehensive like "Lore-master Gear Catalog" or somesuch.

    And add crafted gear to the brackets as well. Some of it is pretty nice.

    Thanks for the input, Sevok. There is a crafted category. And if you look at the top of the first post, you can see that the thread title has been changed to "Loremaster Gear - By Level and Zone," but it doesn't affect the title in the thread listings. I hope that whichever mod stickies this will also change the thread title.

    Ah, damn. Hopefully a mod can change that for when they sticky it. (And they will sticky it...they better!)

    Didn't notice the crafted section; sorry. It's early!

    At work now so I'm not sure of the details, but the Ironwood staff was great, and Hawkling's Staff was good for several levels. http://lorebook.lotro.com/wiki/Weapon:Hawkling's_Staff

    In the ND, the staff you get from collecting all them map pages (Founder's staff?) is good too.

    Tarcham, from the LM 15 class quest, probably deserves a mention.

    I recommend that every 34+ LM should get through Masters of the Black Tide.

    Gandalfs Thanks and Amarthis are nice, but Postolf takes em all

    +20 vit/will and +4% tactical critical CHANCE - not damage - which is awesome.

    My 35 LM sits at 13.4% critical chance. Oh yea, the staff has 20.7 DPS and like 40-60 common dmg

    I agree. Love the staff and am still using it at 39. It can be tough getting a group together for Master of the Black Tide that knows what they're doing but it's worth the effort.

    Made a few updates. I'm not including yellow drops, as we can all predict their stats based on similar items. Holding off on under 21 gear for now, as well.
