Leveling Guide to Eregion

Levels 48-53
Content Pack: VIP or Eregion Quest Pack
Eregion Quest Pack includes:
South of the Trollshaws, Eregion is the bridge zone between Eriador and the Mines of Moria. Hilly and grassy with some wooded areas, Eregion is filled with elven ruins and offers excellent questing from level 48 to 51. The progression is quite smooth through the quest hubs, and at times you'll feel right on the heels of the Fellowship of the Ring as they prepare to pass through Moria.

How to Get There

Grassy Eregion, LOTRO
The safest path to Eregion starts in Tal Bruinen (36.8S, 13.2W) in the Trollshaws. Hire a horse from Rivendell to Tal Bruinen, then head south, cross the Bruinen near Garbert's Cottage (38.3S, 14.6W) and head uphill, then south until you arrive in Eregion near Gwingris. Be sure to talk to the stable master at Gwingris when you arrive.

Legendary Items

If you own the Mines of Moria expansion, you can start Volume II, Book 1 as early as level 45. There is good reason not to wait - the "legendary" weapons and class items you get from Book 1 will make your character much stronger. See The Epic Story for how to start the quest.

Virtue Deeds for Eregion

Eregion is a strong zone for deeds. We recommend everyone complete Silent and Restless (Final, 60 quests) in Eregion for the rank of b and the swift travel routes that these deeds unlock. Hunters will want to complete The Ruins of Eregion and Dens of the Beasts to unlock the Guide to Echad Dunann skill (see class trainer for quest). For the slayer deeds, make sure you haven't already capped the virtue rewarded before starting the grind (currently the max rank for virtues is 10).

Complete 40 quests Hunters
Quest Silent and Restless (Final) Empathy

Keep in mind that these are only a few of the virtues you can work on in this zone - specifically the ones you'll find useful for surviving Moria and are relatively easy to get. You may want to return later to earn more. See Choosing Your Virtues for more information.

Legendary Deeds

Eregion is one of the zones where pages drop from humanoids for your initial Legendary Trait deeds. Be sure visit your class trainer at level 39 and buy the books that start the deeds. You'll need to visit Rivendell to advance the deed, but then any humanoids you kill in Eregion could drop one of the top four pages for one of your deeds.

The Epic Story in Eregion

Just outside Echad Dunann, you find Rathwald standing next to the Sirannon gate. Talk to him to start Volume II, Book 1 of the epic story and gain access to the Walls of Moria expedition zone. You'll want to unlock enough chapters to get your first legendary weapon, which will be a boon against the more difficult Moria content. Be sure to check the rewards from the expedition quests before completing Book 1 and entering Moria. There's no going back once you've passed these up.

Crafting and Eregion

The Burnt Tor is a great hide-gathering spot

Eregion is an excellent gathering zone, offering Ancient-iron, Ancient-silver, Exceptional hides, Black Ash wood and Ancient Vases through most of the zone. From the Burnt Tor and the Nan Sirannon riverbed south, you'll find Khazad-copper and Khazad-tin ore nodes, Ilex wood and Magnificent hides from level 51+ easts. There are no crafting facilities or crafting vendors in Eregion.
