The Eagle becomes available to a Lore-master after choosing the trait Lesser Giant Eagle in the Keeper of Animals tree. It is one level higher than the lore-master itself and is summoned with Eagle-friend.

The eagle is a versatile pet with a good survivability, due to its high level, high morale and self-heal skill. It is especially useful in situations which require crowd-control, since it can fear enemies. Its numerous flanks keeps the morale and power of the Lore-master up and in the worst case, it can revive the Lore-master itself. Its DPS is not too bad either: its auto-attacks deal almost as much damage as those from the Bog-guardian. The eagle has a special ability called "Eye peck": when in combat with a foe, it will sometimes interrupt the enemy's inductions. This makes the eagle useful for specific fights in which the enemy has dangerous abilities, like summoning adds or causing knockbacks. In long group fights (e.g. raids) in which there is a high chance of the Lore-master's pet dying in combat, the eagle can be held on passive to provide the nearby fellows with a higher In-Combat Power Regeneration.

The last three skills on the Eagle's Skill Bar are:

  1. Fan the Flames: Deals fire damage and fears the target
  2. Beak Rend: Deals AoE damage and heals self
  3. Sacrifice: Revives the Lore-master from defeat


The trait Noble Savage enhances the Lore-master's companion by improving its morale, power, attack speed, damage, critical chance, block, parry and evade chance, stealth and stealth detection, as well as granting it immunity to knockbacks.


Auto-attacks have a chance to activate Flanked! on an enemy target.
Auto-attacks from the rear have a chance to activate Harried! on an enemy target.
The eagle companion causes Nobility to occur on you and and any of your fellows who are in the vicinity of the eagle.

Pet Food

An Eagle can eat Bags of Crumbs to temporarily increase its melee offence & evade ratings. Bags of Crumbs are crafted by Cooks.

Ranged Item

A Lore-master can equip a brooch in their ranged slot that grants their pet one of the following:

  • Up to 656 critical rating, 1156 morale and 997 power;
  • Up to 630 in-combat morale regeneration, 8000 evade rating, 1156 morale and 997 power.


A Lore-master has the ability to learn skills that change the appearance of their pet by consuming talismans. These talismans are crafted by Jewellers or can be purchased at the LOTRO Store.
