Lotro: Easy LP Grinding Guide (3/25/17)

grind

( This page is a rewrite of an older post, with updated terminology & links to videos I have made on YouTube )

This guide is more of an explanation on how I grind Lotro Points, there are many guides
out there that claim to reap more LP per day than this guide.. but they are a bit complicated
and take time to learn, so that they are a fluid experience, this guide is kept simple, just kill
XXXX mob, at XXXX location.. move on. If you follow my guide to the letter you can gain 200+ Turbine
points per day, depending on how many times you wish to repeat this process per day, I do it once every two
days, 1/2 the deeds one day, and 1/2 the deeds the next day.. as to not get overwhelmed. The time it
takes to complete this process, depends on your play style, class, & gear you choose.

Setup: Second Account (My Toon: Sambingals)

For this guide you’re going to need a second account (Non-VIP works just fine) with a character at a minimum of level 30. You should have no problem leveling to 30 on a F2P account, by the time you reach the end of the Lone-Lands your character should be near 30, then you can just dungeon your way to 30. I use a hunter for the run speed increase, and the swift-travel which speeds this process up quite a bit. I would also choose the Explorer Profession, to gather all the resources we come by on our adventures,not only will you be earning LP in this guide, but each run should be netting you about 5-10 gold depending on the prices of crafting materials on your server. Once you have your character made and leveled to 30, I highly suggest gearing him out in the best gear you can find, My character has the Great Barrow armor set, and crafted jewelry, this is important because the stronger you are, the faster you will kill the mobs. I highly suggest using your 200 LP you earn on this account to purchase the mount skill for this character, because this will speed up the process even more.

This works best if you have a second computer to run this character on, but you do not need it, you can run two clients on one pc, to do this, start up one account, let it start up and wait till your character is in game, then start up the second client, you can run two clients at the same time, but for some reason you cannot run two launchers at the same time, just be sure to wait for the 1st launcher to close, before you attempt to launch the second client, if you experience performance issues, just drop the graphics settings until your performance improves, you can also run the accounts in window mode, and shrink the second account to a window as small as possible, this will improve performance as well.

Setup: Main account: The account you want to earn Turbine Points on. (My Toon: Elpee)

You need to create a new character, I suggest a hobbit for this grind because of the racial deeds,
Enmity of the Wolves & Enmity of the Spiders, which you will complete alongside other deeds. Level
this toon through the starter instance, you don’t have to worry about gear on this character, because
this toon is going to be on auto follow for the whole process. Be sure to Save all loot, and let
it stack in your bank, potions, crafting crit items, crafting mats, ect
You can sell or keep your task items. Don’t forget to open your gift box, Elpee should reach level
17+, which gives you all kinds of account bound goodies, such as slayer deed accelerators. Your 1st
gift box will contain a red gift, do not open this until your sure you will complete your deed
grind within the next 24 hours, this red gift is a temporary mount (24 hours) and the timer
ticks even when your logged out!

The Deeds

Below are the deeds that I complete in this guide, you will notice that some only require
you complete Tier 1 of the deed, these deeds are fillers, to push the total LP to 200, but
there are not enough mobs that spawn to warrant completing tier 2 of the deed, the time invested
just isn’t worth it. You can do these deeds in whatever order you choose, below are maps showing you the path I take, I save Bree-land for last, because the mobs are higher level and by the time I get there Elpee should be level 14-15 and is less squishy. Once I have completed all the deeds, I delete Elpee, make a new Elpee, and repeat the process.

Shire: 65 LP

Links to videos showing the most efficient way to grind out the mobs:

1.Shire Slug Slayer – Rushock Bog 30.3s, 74.5w (Level 7 Mobs) Tier 1 Only
2.Shire Wolf
– Dora Brownlock’s Farm 31.3s, 72.7w/Wolf Den 30.3s, 72.8w (Level 7 Mobs)
3.Shire Brigand – Narrowcleeve 34.6s, 66.6w (Level 11 Mobs)
4.Shire Spider – The Quarry 28.0s, 65.9w (Level 11 Mobs)
5.Shire Goblin – Golfimbul’s Hole 25.4s, 68.8w (Level 11 Mobs)

( Once I finish with the Shire I will be ending this video series and working on others, I will provide links to videos from the Slayer Deed Guide that I am making, for the rest of this guide. By now you get the idea of what to do, and just need the locations. Happy Hunting! The 1st two videos Wolf and Slug are out of order, Slug should have been episode 1 and Wolf episode 2. a bit of a bother, but you’ll get the idea still, sorry for the inconvenience. )

Ered Luin: 65 LP

Links to videos showing the most efficient way to grind out the mobs:

1.Ered Luin Goblin – Orodost 19.9s, 101.8w (Level 6 Mobs)
2.Ered Luin Spider – Talath Ondren 19.4s,91.5w (Level 13 Mobs)
3.Ered Luin Brigand – Kheledul 21.5s, 92.3w (Level 11 Mobs)
4.Ered Luin Wolf  – Nen Hilith 29.4s,94.9w (Level 7 Mobs)
Ered Luin Hendroval – Tier 1 (Kill all Hendroval you see, while doing the other deeds, this
will get you tier 1, I wouldn’t mess with tier 2)

Bree-land: 60 LP

Links to videos showing the most efficient way to grind out the mobs:

1.Bree Spider – Sprigley’s Farm/Sprigley’s Cellar 27.9s, 48.2w (Level 8 Mobs)
2.Bree Brigand – Blackwold Headquarters 26.9s, 44.6w (level 7 Mobs)
3.Bree Neeker – Halecatch Lake/surrounding Ruins 32.9s,52.1w (Level 15 Mobs)
4.Bree Orc – Cirith Nur Encampment 21.4s, 55.1w (Level 19 Mobs)

Race: Hobbit: I use a hobbit for the racial deeds, if you use another race
you will have to look to Lotrowiki: ( http://lotro-wiki.com/index.php/Deeds#Racial_.26_Social )
to find your race deeds.

Enmity Of The Wolves: Tier 1: 5 LP ( unlocks around level 12, click here for Lotrowiki)
Enmity of The Spiders: Tier 1: 5 LP (unlocks around level 12, click here for Lotrowiki)

There is no need to complete these racial deeds in the Shire.. by the time you finish the Shire, you should have reached the required level to earn these deeds, then when you move on the Ered Luin, you will complete these deeds along side the Ered Luin deeds. The account Elpee is on is old enough to receive the 5 100% XP boosts from the anniversary gift box, I use these to help push Elpee to a higher level, This will make Elpee less likely to aggro mobs, and in the end Elpee will achieve a higher level and get more gifts from the newbie gift box that was introduced with F2P.

This guide will be updated as new videos are made, currently making 1 per week as I also am working on 2 other video series as well, “The Slayer Deed Guide” where I go to every zone in game, and show you the best places to grind out every slayer deed in that zone, and “Into The Wild…” a general exploration of Middle-earth video series that covers a wide range on topics. (Mostly a “What to do when your are bored” video series) You can find links to both of these video series on the side bar here at my blog.
