Leveling comes by fast in the first 10 levels so i’ll try and update the skills a young Lore-master gains in his first few levels. At level 2 Lore-masters get:
Raven-lore: Your very first companion! The raven is a very agile and low damage pet. It does not have a lot of hit-points (or morale points in LOTRO terms) but it has an arsenal of useful skills. You can check the more in-depth article on the raven by clicking here.
Sign of Power: Wizardry: This skill seems a bit disappointing, but appearances can deceive young Lore-master! Specifically, it’s a low damaging attack that with a small DoT (damage over time component) and it can be cast while moving (no induction). But the main strength of this skill is not the damage it does, but the ability it has to heal you if your selected enemy is flanked. You should notice a big bump in survivability from now on. Every time you ear that «chime», remember to use this skill for a small but noticeable heal.
Note: This post was rewritten due to the changes to the Lore-master in the Volume 3, Book 2 changes. They will come into effect on the 8th of September 2010.
