LotRO Champion Guide



This is just a basic introduction to the Champion class. If you are looking for an in-depth guide up to level 60, I recommend this LotRO Champion Guide.



Play Styles



When it comes down to it there are two ways to play with your Champion: Solo or in a Fellowship. Depending on how you like to play, each style has its advantages, however when it comes down to the wire, only the players who Fellowship (meaning playing in a group) will be able to complete much of the most epic and rewarding quests in the game. These quests are called Fellowship Quests and are marked by a special symbol in your Quest Log.



However, the advantage to the solo “grinder” is the fact the LOTRO online is one of the only MMOs that rewards that type of play, with Deeds. With over 450, the Deeds are a type of quest that rewards players with Titles, Traits, and Skills that can be used to enhance game play. Many of the traits you receive from completing a Deed will directly benefit your Champion, which we’ll discuss in more depth later on.



Yet, when it comes to gaining experience in LOTRO and leveling your Champion to epic levels, the secret lies in completing quests and not grinding. By completing quests, your Champion will gain more experience and vital equipment needed to continue the fight.



Soloing in Middle-Earth



It’s not the most effective way to quest in LOTRO, but if you can’t get a Fellowship going, here are some helpful tips to making your soloing worth while. One important thing to keep in mind is, grinding and farming can often be done simultaneously with a quest. So, always take as many quests from the Gold Ring NPCs as you can, from each of the towns your Champion’s visits.



Collection quests, each area is packed with them. These are usually easy to accomplish, get your character out there exploring the area (which is great for Location Deeds), and provide a steady stream of experience.



Hunt and Kill quests, these often times have a collection element to them also, like finding Wolf Hides in the Shire. Fighting enemies is no problem for a Champion and you’ll find that completing these is usually easy, effective, and a great way to get a head start on many of the Deeds.



Grinding Humanoids, enemies like bandits, goblins, dwarfs, and orcs. If you are in the mood for a good grinding session, stick with humanoids; generally they drop far more copper and silver, items, and various crafting ingredients and recipes.



Grinding Animals, enemies like bears, boars, wolves, and lynx. They won’t produce as much raw money for your character but they do often drop various levels of Hides which are great for crafting and generally sell well at the Auction House.
