Leveling Plan for 32-40

Leveling Plan for 32-40

LOTRO Evendim. Care for a swim?
For levels 32-40, your choices for new zones are Evendim and Trollshaws. This level range is typically the toughest in LOTRO, so make sure you get the most out of North Downs and the Garth Agarwen instance cluster in Lone-lands too. You are going to need to do considerable switching between zones to keep leveling. Skirmish through the rough spots.

Free and Premium Tactics

Of the two quest packs for this range, Evendim is the more attractive of the two, especially if you want to run Annuminas groups from level 50 on. Trollshaw's best content is 40+, but there are other options to consider for those levels.

As before, you will want to complete all quests and deeds in content packs you own. Be sure to do the level 30 Gift Box quests, Volume I Books 3 & 4 and the intro rep quests. Run Garth Agarwen and Fornost if you own the associated quest pack.

New Options for Character Improvement

Legendary Traits are a key component in your character's "builds" at higher levels. These traits can give class-defining abilities, such as Champion's Raging Blade or Minstrel's Fellowship's Heart. While some may be more useful than others, earning all of your legendary and class traits gives you the flexibility to create strong builds for soloing, grouping, raiding and PvMP.

Your first opportunity to work on legendary traits comes at level 39 and starts with your class trainer. See Earning Your Legendary Traits for details.

Class Traits More Class Deeds opened up at 30. Equip class traits that complement your playstyle and provide set bonuses. Free and premium players should start working on unlocking additional class trait slots.
