Level Upgrade

From Lotro-Wiki.com
Jump to navigation Jump to search

When creating a Character in LOTRO, there are several options to level up from level 0 to 130:

  • You can do it the normal way by completing quests and instances as you go through different regions, possibly using a form of Experience Acceleration.
  • If you want to rapidly "level-up" a Character and/or skip content, you can purchase a Level Upgrade which raises you to a certain level and provides you with level-appropriate starting gear as well as some other bonuses.

All Level Upgrade options are described below. In the in-game LOTRO Store, they are found under Character > Character Upgrades > Veteran Status. NOTE: These items are only visible in the in-game LOTRO Store AFTER you have created your character and entered Middle-earth and ONLY if your character is eligible for them!

For example, you will not see Veteran Status: Level 5 if your character has completed the introduction and gained the Characteristic Note-icon.png Novice trait.
