      Lately I’ve been reading some guides, and the Lore Master section on the official forums, and I want to share some of this information with kinnies who are interested into lore mastering.

      1 – Guides

      Dstini’s guide: A very extensive (and still incomplete) read about LM skills, pets and traits/virtues setups. http://rarebreed.guildlaunch.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=11117695

      Merillas’ guide: A pretty good guide about yellow line, include some info about crowd control and debuffing. http://dwellersofoldforest.boards.net/thread/99/ancient-master-yellow-loremaster

      2 – Legacies

      I’ve been reading the official forums, trying to come up with the best legacies for my LI’s. Of course, I’m not at expert on the class, just sharing my personal selection.

      2.1 – Staff

      I’m using this staff for every situation, and these are my legacies, mostly focused on dps.

      *Burning Embers Initial Damage
      *Fire Skills Critical Damage
      *Lightning-storm Base Damage
      *Nature’s Fury Skill Damage
      *Sticky Gourd Base Direct Damage
      *Ring of Fire Damage
      *Tactical Skills Direct Damage

      Some people like using “Light of the Rising Dawn Base Critical Damage” and “Light of the Rising Dawn Damage” since that skill is available in every trait line.

      2.2 – Books

      Legacies for DPS book:
      *Armour Debuff Potency
      *Fire Damage Over Time
      *Light-type Damage
      *Signs of Power Duration
      *Wizard’s Fire Critical Chance (this could be replaced with Burning Embers Critical Chance)
      *Fire Skills Critical Rating (not necessary, thinking about changing it for a Stat legacy)

      Legacies for Support book (In progress):
      *Armour Debuff Potency
      *Beacon of Hope Magnitude
      *Charged Air Reflect Damage
      *Inner Flame Base Healing
      *Signs of Power Duration
      I would use “Fire Damage Over Time”, “Light Type Damage” or stat legacies for the other 2 spots.

      Legacies for swap non-imbued book (still not made):
      *Bane Flare Targets
      *Fire-lore Debuff Strength
      *Pet Morale (optional)

      3 – Bugs

      The class has a lot of, beneficial and disadvantageous, bugs:

      *According to this thread: https://www.lotro.com/forums/showthread.php?607463-Does-the-Wizard-s-Fire-Crit-Chance-Legacy you SHOULDN’T equip both “Wizard’s Fire Critical Chance” and “Burning Embers Critical Chance”, but just ONE OF THEM to make the legacy work.

      *”Target Resistance (Damaging Skills)” and “Target Resistance (Fire Skills)” are bugged and do nothing.

      *”Target Resistance (Debuffing Skills)” works, but it’s almost worthless, you are better off using 12k Finesse.

      *”Lightning Skills Critical Rating” and “Fire Skills Critical Rating” are useless if your Critical Rating is already capped (17,6k). Every dps/healing class should have this stat capped for t2 content.

      *”Signs of Power Duration” bugs when “Enfeeble” from yellow line is equipped. More information here: https://www.lotro.com/forums/showthread.php?645515-Sign-of-Power-duration-legacy-buged-when-trait-with-Enfeeble-update-18-2-3

      *FIXED – “Wind Lore” now gives the proper +1% Inc Dmg. “Wind Lore” gives -1% Inc Dmg, instead of +1%, so DON’T spam it, just use it to spread Fire and Frost-lore.

      *”Ancient craft” skill is beneficially bugged! More info here: https://www.lotro.com/forums/showthread.php?603269-FYI-Ancient-craft-legacy-is-beneficially-bugged

      *A short video showing how to increase your pet’s morale and using “Air Lore” on more than 1 target: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qmtdpm0VcjE haven’t tested this yet.

      Finally I’m attaching my skill setup since I was asked to post them :P (thinking about moving my pets to a un-docked horizontal bar, and put my LI books on the 4th row of skills).

      I am slowly, but surely, leveling up my LM lately. This will be very helpful. Thanks Hagenti!

      Just in case, Wind Lore was fixed with Update 19.1, now it gives the proper +1% Inc Dmg. Link to release notes on the forums: https://www.lotro.com/forums/showthread.php?648809-Update-19-1-Release-Notes
