Level restrictions

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

Level restrictions are in place in higher level regions, which means that if a character's level is too low:

  • Entering the region displays a warning.
  • Under the mini-map, the region name is shown in red.
  • Creatures' aggro range is much wider than usual, including normally non-aggressive creatures.
  • The lower level character cannot be summoned to the region by Captains, Hunters, or by any Mustering Horn.
  • Harvesting of nodes is much slower (60 seconds). Crafting also takes a lot longer than normal.
  • If the character is defeated they will not revive locally but where their Milestone is set.

Note: The increased aggro range does not affect chicken/session players in the case they are at a much lower level than the region as such.

As a general rule the regional (areas within regions if different) minimum level requirement is set by the minimum level requirement of the local Milestone, Camp Site Fire or Mustering Horn.

Blocked areas and regions

Level restrictions may also mean the required level to enter that area at all, so that a lower level character is denied access. This is typically the case for many World Instances, but also:
