Traits
-------------------------------------------------------------

There is a wide variety of traits. Most either add to attributes, resists, or regeneration rate.

All characters have a set amount of slots dedicated to traits. These slots are unlocked simply by leveling. Following is a list of when all trait slots become available at all tiers:

Common: 11 - 14 - 17 - 20 - 24
Race: 21 - 25 - 28 - 32 - 36
Class: 29 - 33 - 34 - 37 - 38 - 39 - 41 - 42
Legendary: 43 - 44 - 48 - 49 - 50


Actual traits are unlocked in many various ways. The following are ways that are currently in beta.

Exploration
Example: Find and visit 6 specific named farms in the Shire

Quests
-Quest total: complete 40 quests in the Shire
-Quest completion: I'm asuming there are quests that unlock traits at 35+

Kill Count
Exampe: Kill 90 wolves in the Bree region

Visit the local bard to place your unlocked traits into your character slots.

Crafting
-------------------------------------------------------------


There are seven crafting classes that are currently in LOTRO. Each one is made up of 3, smaller subclasses. I'll start by listing the subclasses and what each one is cpable of.


-Metalsmith: Makes sub-components out of metal, as well as heavy armor.

-Prospector: Harvests mining nodes such as copper, silver and iron. As well as being able to harvest these, prospectors can also smelt the metal.

-Tailor: A tailor can make medium and light armor. Tailors also refine pelts into useable pieces for crafting.

-Forester: Foresters can harvest wood, and can also refine that wood so it can be used in recipes.

-Weaponsmith: Makes melee weapons as well as weapon sub-comps.

-Woodworker: Bows, crossbows, staves.

-Cook: Is able to craft food that give various buffs, such as attribute buffs and in some cases, experience buffs.

-Farmer: Pretty self explanitory. A farmer can farm fruits and vegetables, as well as pipe weed.

-Scholar: Makes scrolls and other lore items that act as buffs to various stats.

-Jeweller: Is capable of polishing stones and making jewelry out of metal.

Those are all of the subclasses currently ingame. Following is a list of the main crafting classes and what they are composed of:

Armorer
-Metalsmith
-Prospector
-Tailor

Explorer
-Tailor
-Forester
-Prospector

Armsman
-Weaponsmith
-Prospector
-Woodworker

Yeoman
-Cook
-Farmer
-Tailor

Woodsman
-Wooderworker
-Forester
-Farmer

Historian
-Scholar
-Weaponsmith
-Farmer

Tinker
-Jeweller
-Prospector
-Cook


Crafting is broken up into 5 tiers, each needing more experience than the previous tier. Mastery is available for each tier, which simply increase critical chance by 5% for that tier.

If you get a critical during crafting, you either get more than 1 of that item, or you produce a higher quality item (depends on the object)

Character Race / Class / Origin Possibilities
-------------------------------------------------------------

I'll start this section with a very brief description of each class, and their main role in combat as of beta.



Minstrel - Main healing and buff class.

Guardian - Kind of like the warrior in WoW, main tank, and a lot of counter attack specials.

Hunter - Ranged DPS... lots.

Burglar - Pretty good melee DPS, as well as a lot of handy debuffs.

Captain - Melee DPS, and some really really good buffs. Also has some healing powers.

Lore-Master - DOTs, lots of them, and pets. Guess you could compare them to Warlocks in WoW

Champion - Secondary tank next to guardian. Some really awesome melee DPS and melee attacks.

Max characters in beta atm is 6 or 8... not sure.

Max level at launch is 50, and for being in beta game play is really smooth and easy to get the hang of.

i managed to get into the beta, and it seemed a lot like WoW. Of course alot will be saying this but it took a while to actually see that it is pretty unique. I have been wondering if all beta characters will be nuked or will we be able to keep them. Other than that great guide.
