Levels 6-14 Man

This guide pretty much begins right after the introduction. I will be explaining where you will go and when right after you are done with the introduction prologue.

Race of Man:
You will begin right after the big battle of Archet. This part of the guide I am about to explain will take you to level 14. Once you get out of the Archet Instance you will see Jon brackenbrook with a flaming ring above his head. This indicates that this is an epic quest part of the epic storyline exclusive to Lord of the Rings Online. The quest he gives you is Prologue: Burying the Dead. Before you do that you should also pick up the questFinding Reason which leds to  A Threat from Spiders which is from Alti-Spider bane, and Disease Among the Boars. Once you complete those three head back to Archet.
After Burying the dead you should have  Bree-land Epic Prologue: An Urgent Summons. Pick up Builder Earur and Spider-bane. Once you complete those pick up Message to Taylor Green and head to Combe. Combe is the next major quest hub. That you will be at. By now you should be around level 7 possibly level 8. You will want to pick up literally ever quest that they have their which is in all about 18 quests. Ill list them for you right here.

If you complete all of those you should be level 9-10. Be warned though in alot of the camps it is not possible to pull one mob without pulling all the rest. I recommend you have one or two buddies helping you with some of these quests. After you complete those turn in the Prolouge:Urgent summons and start doing the prologue quest. The next quest after urgent summons is Bree-land Epic Prologue: Cutleaf's Good Intentions where you will have to visit Ellie Cutleaf. Her house is to the southern part of town. She will give you a series of quests in which you will complete for her. 
After you complete those you will obtain another quest Bree-land Epic Prologue: Chasing Amdir but you will not do this quest. Leave along the road exiting Combe and follow the road until you come to the small town of Staddle. You will want to find Eldo Swatmidge he offers a few very easy quest for a fellow hero like you to do which will net you some xp and probably get you to level 11.
He also sends you to Widow Froghorn and here are the quests that she gives you.
Than I would recomend that you go see Gami bogs and do this small quest chain.
Now it is time to finally head back to Staddle and begin these series of quests.
Than there are a few that start within the greater Staddle 
By the time you are finished with Staddle I would expect you to be level 12-13. Now it is time for you to finally do that Prolouge quest you got a while ago. Complete that and you will receive  Prologue: To a Ranger's Aid
That is an instance which sums up the Prolouge. Now it is time for you to head to the great town of Bree
and you will get the quests get the quest chain:
  1. Meeting the Mayor [14]
  2. A Tour of Bree [14]
  3. The Trouble with the Southerners
Which eventually leads onto this quest chain
  1. Sharkey's Men [14]
  2. Shadow of the White Hand [14]
  3. Rogue's Gallery [15]
  4. Sharkey's Plan [15]
  5. The Vale of Andrath [15]
    1. Brigands and Half-orcs [15]
    2. Sharkey's Lieutenant [16]
  6. Informing Grimbriar [16]
Now you will be level 15 after doing all of those. Congratulations I will be doing future levels as I have time to add them. I will also be doing a dwarf,elf, and Hobbit of their leveling and starting zone. Thanks for reading!

Class Guide

Here I will show you some of the classes. I will start off by showing you a few graphs I acquired from the Lotro Wiki.
TankDPS: MeleeDPS: AoEDPS: RangedCrowd controlDebufferHealerBufferPet Class
Burglar: The Burglar is a master of stealth and misdirection. Burglars mainly rely on using the ability sneak and than they use a series of Tricks and gambles to stun their enemies and kill them pretty fast. The Burglars main role is to be a debuffer, which means they rob monsters of their ability to deal damage and attack at full strength, which would make their role in a group a very coveted one. The burglar can be played by the races of Hobbit, and Man

Captain: The captain is probably my favorite class. The only thing I do not like about captain's is they could get better heals. In the beginning you don't get good healing until your all traited out which can take a little while. They get some pets and eventually a creature known as an Oath Breaker. The Captain really doesn't have a definite role and they are known as a Jack of all trades. They have a hand with about every job in the group. When going solo the captain can be a warrior and a healer, but while in a group they can improve their fellowship a great deal. Even though they aren't really the best in any area they can cover about any job their is in a group. The captain can be played by the race of Man.

Champion: The champion is a consummate warrior, and unrelenting in battle. The champions Fervour allows him to make very powerful attacks, with their Affect on everyone especially. The champion is the best in melee combat but can carry a bow also. The champion uses heavy armor to take all the hits that can affect him. The champions main role in a fellowship is to inflict damage to multiple targets while interuptting the channel abilities with Clobber. The champion can be played by Dwarf,Elf,And man.

Guardian: The guardian is my second favorite class. The guardian is a protector of the weak and defender of those in  need. The guardian is capable of withstanding mighty blows and retaliating. A true guardian stands in the forefront of battle shielding his allies from the blows of his enemies. The role of a guardian is a tank and the races capable of playing this class are Dwarf,Elf,Hobbit,and Man.

 Hunter: The hunter is probably the squishiest of the classes. The hunter is a master of the field and the forest, Hunter's are unmatched with a bow. Hunter's use their survival skills to guide their companions and lay traps for their enemies. Hunters are at their strongest attacking enemies from a  distance, but are able to defend themselves in melee combat when needed. The Hunter's Main role is the Nuker. The Hunter can be played by Dwarf,Elf,Hobbit,and Man.

  Lore-master: The lore-master is a seeker of knowledge, and a guardian of wisdom. The lore-master wields ancient secrets and lore confound to his foes, and to aid his friends, protecting them from the dark powers of the enemy. The role of a lore-master is crowd control. And the races that can play as the lore-master are the race's of Elves, and Man.

 Minstrel: The minstrel is the heart of fellowship, a herald of hope and renewal. The minstrel uses knowledge of ancient songs and lore to ward off the forces of darkness and to bring relief to his companions. The role of a minstrel is to be a healer. The races that can play as the minstrel are Dwarf,Elf,Hobbit,and Man.

 Rune-keepers: Mystic linguist and masters of true names. The Rune-Keeper can heal in one battle and use destructive magic in the next. The Rune-Keeper can call down lightning among the enemy. Recite words of grace or use destructive magic the choice is yours. The roles of a Rune-Keeper are healer, and crowd control. The races that can play as a Rune-Keeper are Dwarf,and Elf.

 Wardens: A warden is armed with spears and javelins as the weapon of their choice. The warden uses a gambit system to execute powerful combo attacks on the front line's of battle. Unlike the other tank classes, the warden uses the medium armor type and relies on self heals using taunts with blocking and parrying. The warden is good at holding aggro. The roles of the warden is tank. The races that can play the warden are Elf,Hobbit,and Man.
