Leveling Guide to Bree-land
|Levels 5-24, 30
Content Pack: Free
As soon as you complete the Introduction, you can purchase the Basic Riding skill from the LOTRO Store and your first horse at Hengstacer Farms ("P" on the map below) for 500 silver.
As a starting area, Archet-Combe-Staddle is more compact than The Shire, and has more content than Ered Luin. You don't have to do every quest in succession to move on to the higher level areas of the zone.
Lone-lands and North Downs, so pick what interests you. Just be sure to finish 45 quests in Bree-land for the useful virtue traits.
At Level 20, the Men of Bree reputation quests open up. These lead to Haudh Iarchith, the Men of Bree rep dungeon in the Barrow Downs. Among the possible rewards are gear for the level and a Return to Bree skill for non-Man races.
