Hunter leveling guide 1-15

Skill Level: Moderate

Hunters are masters of field and forest, unmatched in their dexterity with the bow. They use their survival skills to guide companions and lay traps for enemies. Hunters are at their strongest when attacking from a distance, but are able to defend themselves in melee combat when needed.

Role: DPS

The Hunter is proficient at dealing out damage to single foes at both range and melee. When Hunters are at range, they can unleash devastating arrow shots that do high damage to single targets. When the lone enemy manages to close into melee range, the Hunter is well-equipped to deal the finishing blow with some melee skills.

Pick your Race

Hobbit Man Elf Dwarf

Your choice or race will change your starting statistics and your initial voyage through the story. If you are familiar with the game you can skip the user tutorial if not I would recommend going through it. I do however recommend not skipping the introduction quest line which if nothing else will allow you to get to level 7 without being in any real danger. During the introduction the game will guide you through most of your user interface or UI but there is much more to your UI. By hitting ctrl+o will open your UI settings panel which will allow you to change you graphics, audio, UI, and others. as you go through your options if you hover your mouse you should get a tool tip to explain the options.

A little bit on character creation. Sorry about the sound quality I still need a new microphone.

Once you move into your intro area you will need to find your first quest bestowal from one of the non-player characters or NPCs that have gold rings above their heads. this is a quick walk through of the elven tutorial area.

And now on to Skills these are the skills you can acquire through the first 15 levels.

13 Accuracy : Rank 1 16 90

15 Evade : Rank 2 22 50
15 Hand Wrought Traps 22 50

Now for the quest Areas once you get through your intro area you should be level 7 at least on average depending on how many mobs you kill. Now you will find yourself in your race specific starter area, Dwarves start in Thorin’s Hall, Elves in Celondim, Humans in Archet, and Hobbits in Little Delving. Both the Human and Hobbit Areas lead into much larger and in my opinion more complete areas Bree and the Shire respectively. Once you have completed the introduction you will find many more NPCs with gold rings above their heads. Take as many quest as you can find, kill as many monsters as you can and loot everything. It will not take you long to reach level 15 probably just a few hours if you do not take a break. There are many other things that I have not covered like traits and crafting I will get to it but except for crafting you probably won’t even run into any of it until level 15. And once you get to level 15 you will be able to do your first Hunter class quest.
