Lord of the Rings Online F2P

The Lord of the Rings Online (LOTRO) is the first mmorpg set in the world of J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings populated with real and computer players that continue to function even when you turn the game off.


Crafting is broken up into seven Vocations, and each is made up of three Professions. The name of the Vocation should give you a pretty solid idea of what they do. Armourers make Armour for example. The seven Vocations are; Armourer, Armsman, Tinker, Historian, Explorer and Yeoman.

Within each Vocation is a series of Professions. Some of them directly support each other and the primary Vocation, while some will require you to find a player with a complimentary Vocation or Profession. There are ten Professions in all; Forester, Metalsmith, Cook, Farmer, Prospector, Scholar, Tailor, Jeweller, Weaponsmith, and Woodworker.


Defending the Free Peoples from the dangers of Middle-earth is hard work, and sometimes an adventurer needs to stop in order to relax and enjoy a quiet moment away from trouble and turmoil. Hobbies are a great way to unwind in Middle-earth!

A Hobby is an activity that you may choose to participate in for fun or for profit! Similar to crafting professions, a hobby allows players to experience more of the world of Middle-earth and interact with it in new and exciting ways.


Race of Hobbits
There are few recorded deeds of Hobbits until late in the Third Age of Middle-earth, which is just the way Hobbits would prefer it. They are simple and quiet, preferring to dwell in hillside holes in and around the area known as The Shire in western Eriador.

Race of Men
The shortest-lived of the races of Middle-earth, yet also the race destined to rule in the years beyond the Third Age, the race of Men is known by their short life span. Their mortality was considered a unique gift, but in time it became known as “The Doom of Men” and a source of lamentation.

Race of Elves
Throughout the ages, the deeds and struggles of the noble race of Elves have been entwined with the very history of Middle-earth. They remember way too well the devastation caused by the tides of evil that once stroke the land and which threatens to do so once again.

Race of Dwarves
They are known for their steadfast determination, hearty strength, and commitment to all things found in the world’s deep places.


With song and tale, a Minstrel brings hope to places thick with gloom. In battle, she can turn the tide with songs that strengthen her allies and dirges which strike fear into the hearts of enemies.

A keeper of ancient lore and otherwise lost knowledge, the Lore-master uses his knowledge of the lesser and greater powers of the world to stave off the advances of the shadow for a time, and to treat the wounds and suffering of his companions. He can use this knowledge to hurt his foes; but this task being extremely difficult, a wise Lore-master would rarely attempt it.

A stealthy trickster, the Burglar can dart in and out of the shadows to befuddle, weaken, or damage foes. An unexpected strike from behind can stun or trip enemies, allowing others in his party to combine their efforts for a devastating attack.

A true master of arms, the Champion excels at combat, focusing on little other than destroying her foes. His whirling blades can strike fear into the heart of even the foulest orc, cutting down swaths of their numbers at once.

Bearing her banner into battle, a Captain provides hope and leadership to her fellows, inspiring them. A skilled Captain can rally a party back from the brink of defeat, or seal a victory against many foes.

A doughty fighter and protector of the weak, a skilled Guardian can face even the toughest foes and survive. One of the few classes willing and able to try to draw more blows onto themselves, so they can retaliate with devastating maneuvers in response.

Woodsman, pathfinder, and master of the bow, the keen-eyed Hunter can use his arrows to devastating effect from a distance. Archery is not the only thing the Hunter excels at, for he can lead his companions through the forest at greater speed than they could on their own, and can set up traps to ambush enemies.

Devoted to slowing the encroaching evil of Sauron, they protect those who cannot protect themselves. A fierce determination to succeed at her given task inspires them, and allows her to keep up her own morale through even the darkest of battles.

Able to utilize the true power of words and writing, a Rune-keeper can devastate enemies or inspire allies. Rune-keepers wield elemental Rune-stones which are written. Through these stones and other tools, the Rune-keeper is able to harness runic energy and rain destruction or restore morale.
