Volume I at a Glance

The epic story in LOTRO is wonderful content based on JRR Tolkien's Lord of the Rings. Don't miss it! Many of the fellowship chapters of Volume I can be soloed now using the Inspired Greatness buff, though some classes still have problems with particular chapters. Just duo if with a complementary class (you'll still get a scaled-down version of the IG buff) or group up for any chapters you are having trouble with.

The chart below shows the levels, starting NPC, special rewards and repeatable chapters for each book in Volume I.
