Overview

Slots for Virtues

Virtues are a type of trait that characters can gain in Lotro. Virtues grants bonuses to stats and are an important part of improving your character.

Each Virtue grants bonuses to 3 different stats. The first stat listed on the tooltip grants the largest bonus, the next grants a somewhat smaller bonus, and the last stat listed on the tooltip grants the smallest bonus. In order to gain the stat bonuses for a Virtue it must be slotted by double-clicking it or dragging it to the top bar in the Virtue page of the Trait Tree Panel (which by default is accessed by the j key).

All Virtues also grant a small passive stat bonus (either to Maximum Morale or Physical and Tactical Mastery) even if they are not slotted.
(Note: even when you don't have any rank at all then you still get rank 1 passives.)

Virtue slots are unlocked as you level up:

Slot Unlocked at Level
1 7
2 9
3 11
4 17
5 23

Slotted Virtues are tied to each Trait build (specified using the numbered tabs on the right side of the Trait Tree Panel). Therefore players can have unique Virtue builds that accompany their Class Trait builds. Note that Trait builds can be switched at any time while out-of-combat.

To determine which Virtues provide the most benefit for each class and role, consult the following pages:

Ranking up Virtues

A Virtue marked as Earning

To increase the stat bonuses provided by Virtues, you must increase their rank. Virtues gain ranks when players acquire Virtue Experience ("Virtue XP") as a reward for completing a deed, certain repeatable quests, or Featured Instances. Only one Virtue can be ranked up at a time - the Virtue that is specified as Earning in the Virtue panel. To mark a Virtue as Earning, click it such that the text 'Earning' appears in green below the Virtue name.

A Virtue Maxed Out Alert

The current maximum rank achievable for Virtues is 75. However, the effective maximum rank is based on character level. If a character is not max level, their Virtues will be capped at a rank of the character's level divided by 2 (rounded down, up to character level 110), or the character's level minus 55 (for characters above level 110), up to a maximum of 75.

If you gain Virtue XP while your Earning Virtue is capped then the Virtue XP will go instead to a Virtue which is not capped in this order:

  1. A slotted Virtue in your current build from left to right.
  2. The lowest ranked Virtue and in case of multiple equally ranked - in alphabetical order.

The following table lists the amount of Virtue XP required for each rank:
