Guardian leveling guide 31-40

This week we will cover a few ideas on which area to head into for your leveling purposes.  If you went the Lone-lands route you should be about ready to head to Oatbarton and Evendim or to Esteldin and the eastern North-downs. If you chose to go through the North-downs then you will have naturally progressed to the eastside of the North-downs. At level 38 you will find that quests are either few and far between or require a group to complete. I would suggest doing Skirmishes as needed for the XP help in this situation. Unfortunately we have just hit the proverbial wall as it comes to leveling you will get there but it is going to seem like work. Don’t be afraid to use the different chat channel to ask for suggestions.

The skills available to you from level 31-40

Level Skill Cost
32 Stamp 102 40
33 Parry : Rank 3 108 90
34 Deep Breath 115 60
35 Block : Rank 3 122 50
36 Turn the Tables 129 60
37 Evade : Rank 3 136 90
38 Guardian’s Promise 144 40
39 Parry : Rank 4 152 10
40 Fray the Edge 160

Now this time around you will be able to start your level 39 deeds that will allow you to gain 3 legendary skills. Books can be purchased from your class trainer.

Level Book Cost
39 The Final Word 189 60
39 The Best Defence 189 60
39 A Shield-maiden’s Song 189 60

After acquiring the books from your class trainer you will then need to find 8 missing pages per book. The pages can only be found by killing sentient monsters Orc-kind, Trolls, and evil men. The first four pages for each book will drop off of mobs in the Angmar and Eregion areas when I say first four that will be the top four in the deed log. The second four will drop off of mobs in the Misty Mountains and Forochel. Upon completion of these books you will receive a legendary trait as shown above. each of these traits when active will in turn allow you to use a new skill.
