Stat Tomes

Trolls pounding you into submission? Friends defeated because you can’t heal them fast enough? Then it may be time to upgrade your character’s Agility, Fate, Might, Vitality, or Will stats. Don’t worry, there are many easy ways to upgrade these stats! Level up your character. Get better gear by completing quests, crafting, and using the auction-house. Or use permanent stat boosting tomes that are dropped by enemies or purchased through the LOTRO Store. Food and drinks acquired in-game can also provide temporary boosts to your stats. Check out the details on each stat tome type!
Tome Of Will
Will increases your maximum power pool, your Out-of-Combat Power Regeneration, and how much you resist Fear effects, including cowering from Dread. It also contributes to increases in your Outgoing Healing Rating and Tactical Offence Rating.
Tome Of Agility
Agility increases your ability to evade and parry incoming blows, adds to the amount of ranged damage you deal, and increases your chance to critically hit a foe (ranged or melee). It also improved your Hit Chance.
Tome Of Fate
Fate increases your In-Combat Power Regeneration and In-Combat Morale Regeneration. Fate also increases the chance and magnitude of Criticals on Tactical skills (healing and damage spells).
Tome Of Might
Might increases your ability to block incoming attacks with a shield, parry incoming blows, or cause greater damage with a weapon. It also reduces incoming common damage.
Tome Of Vitality
Vitality increases your maximum morale, your Out-of-Combat Morale Regeneration, resistances to Wound, Disease and Poison effects. It also reduces incoming damage from non-weapon sources like Fire, Frost, Lightning, Acid and Shadow.

Store Location: Character → Stats
Levels: All

CSTM RECOMMENDATION: Stat tomes are always popular items especially when on sale. These tomes can drop in game but they seem to be a bit on the rare-ish side. But it is an in-game option if you want to check the Auction House first. Note that you cannot apply a tier 2 stat tome until you’ve applied a tier 1, etc.


Custom-tailor your character’s strengths based on your play-style or fellowship need by equipping stackable Virtues. Experience increased morale and power, mitigate various damage types, and more!

Store Location: Character → Virtues
Levels: All

CSTM RECOMMENDATION: These get a “meh” simply because you can earn these in the game grinding them via the deed system. A nice short-cut to a long grind but not a necessary purchase. If grinding is the thing that gets on your nerves then no harm in buying them at all.

For more information on the usefulness of virtues, see Ketani’s article “Are Virtues Worth the Grind?” or her latest post on Virtue Changes in Isengard.

+20% Monster and Quest XP (3 hrs)

Get more for your monsters with a 20% bonus to experience earned from killing monsters and completing quests! This effect will last for 3 hours. Single and 5-stacks available.

Store Location: Buffs & Boosts → Advancement → XP
Levels: All

CSTM RECOMMENDATION: These items were added with Rise of Isengard and give the added bonus of not just monster kill experience bonus but a bonus to quest experience as well.

There’s no real reason to rush through LOTRO but if you are a bit stuck and could use a boost, this would be the item I’m more likely to recommend over the Enhanced XP Supply. 3 solid hours of +20% exp bonus to monsters and quests are probably going to net you more experience over just monster xp boost on your experience bar.
