Leveling Guide to Lothlorien

LOTRO Lothlorien Galadhrim scouts guard the Golden Wood
Zone levels 59-60
Content Pack: Mines of Moria Ex-pac
Mines of Moria Expansion includes:

After 10 levels of the "long dark" of Moria, most players are as relieved to make it out into the sunshine of Lothlorien as The Company were. Unfortunately, you are not known to the Galadhrim elves and they are very protective of their borders, having fended off the orcs coming from Moria as well. Your first job here will be to gain their trust.

You can start the quests from Mekhem-bizru at 57 or 58 if you work in a small fellowship. Besides gaining XP, you need to attain Acquaintance standing to safely enter the protected area of Lothlorien, or be killed on sight by Galadhrim scouts. We suggest you complete Volume II, Books 6 and 7 before you start the repeatable reputation quests at Echad Andestel. These books of the epic story pay a ton of Galadhrim reputation and will hasten your entry to the Golden Wood.

Once you can enter the main area of Lothlorien, you'll have access to many more quests. Most are repeatable daily and pay IXP, reputation and Galadhrim barter items - Lothlorien Silver Branches and Lothlorien Gold Leaves. These can be traded for gear, recipes, housing items, a mount and many other items at various locations around Lothlorien. Keep earning Galadhrim reputation until you reach Friend standing and can enter Caras Galadhon, the city in Lothlorien. There are many easy quests in Caras Galadhon (more xp!) and an exploration deed that rewards a rank of Valour.

At this point you can continue questing in Lothlorien (some barter items require Ally or Kindred standing) or move on to Mirkwood.

Virtue Deeds in Lothlorien

While Lothlorien is not a strong zone for earning virtues, we still recommend everyone earn enough Galadhrim reputation (Friend) to enter Caras Galadhon. Even if you don't need the super easy rank of Valour there, you can earn nearly 20 Lothlorien Gold Leaves from fast and easy quests there. Anyone interested in boosting their Melee Defence will want to go for the rank of Innocence earned by killing orcs in Lothlorien. You'll get a bunch just questing here, and can finish up by running the daily quests from Talan Fanuidhol and Talan Gwilith.

Keep in mind that these are only a few of the virtues you can work on in this zone. You may want to return later to earn more. See Choosing Your Virtues for more information.

The Epic Story and Lothlorien

LOTRO Flets in Caras Galadhon, Lothlorien
Lothlorien figures prominently in Volume II of the epic story. We recommend you complete Books 6 and 7 before you start repeatable quests in Lothorien. These pay a ton of Galadhrim reputation and will hasten your entry to the Golden Wood. Volume II, Book 8 sends you back into Moria to destroy Gorothul's relics. Trade any Medallions of Lothlorien you've earned the barter vendor or your class trainer in Caras Galadhon.

Crafting and Lothlorien

Gatherers love the Golden Wood. It's packed with Tier 6b nodes - Khazad-iron and Khazad-gold deposits, Mallorn branches and Sage caskets. Mithril flakes are fairly easy to find, both from ore nodes and rare monsters. Many of the regular beasts in the area just threaten making gathering here a breeze. You can kill them for their Extraordinary hides, just avoid the "protected" ones if you want to preserve your Galadhrim reputation.

Guilded crafters will want to visit the vendors at The Vineyards of Lorien to purchase Tier 6 recipes (beware the reputation restrictions). One shot recipes and crafting critical components for non-guilded professions are available from the barter vendors at the docks in Imlad Lalaith. In addition to the crafting facitilies at The Vineyards of Lorien, there is a Crafting Hall on Telain Galadhrim in Caras Galadhon, one ladder up from the vault and auction house.
