Beorning class trait points, skill and race deeds

Every class has its skill deeds and the Beorning is no different …well, almost. The Beorning is unique in that it is both a class and race and with that, the developers were able to do something special with the class deeds: tie racial skills into skill deeds. This can be a bit annoying as two of the skills have 30-minute cooldowns meaning that the deeds that require 50 uses of these skills will take a minimum of 25 hours (12.5 with accelerators). Other than that, there aren’t many surprises.

The skills required for the deeds are not restricted by trait line, however, those skills can certainly help. For example, the blue-line skill Counter gives the Beorning an extra 10% evade chance which will greatly help with the two deeds requiring evasion. For the Beorn’s Might deed you can lock in different trait sets and switch back and forth to use each of those capstone skills instead of just one at a time. In general, the daily limit is 10% of the total skill uses required, which can be temporarily removed when using a class skill deed accelerator. Without an accelerator, it’ll take 10 days at minimum.

Racial enmity deeds are basically the same as other classes and have no daily limit. Eight of the Beorning racial traits come from these slayer deeds (which count on any mob regardless of level difference with your character) and the ninth comes from the level 30 class quest in Ost Guruth rather than gated by a reputation requirement like the other races.

There are the same amount of trait points as the other classes, however, they come from slightly different sources. Level 15 and 30 class quests each give a trait point, but getting kindred with the Iron Garrison Guards of Moria and completing book 6 of the epic volume II quests do not. You’ll also get a trait point each for collecting pages from the three level 39 books and one from the level 50 class quest.

  1. Hello DoS folks, it’s the Malaysian Lotro Gamer. Just wanted to shout out a huge thanks for posting and sharing this. Very helpful as I’m levelling my Beorning. Also glad that you guys are still flying the banner since I first discovered you in the Lotro Strategy days!

    Just want to point out something extra. When I checked over the weekend, the Iron Garrison Guard trader NPC had all the other class trait point books except the Beorning. I found the 3 books at the Beorning Moria Armor/Trainer NPC instead. Just a note in case players are looking for them.

    Keep it up, cheers.
