The Bombo-Guide to Minstrel by Bombollo on the LOTRO forums with the guide on Google Drive, original source unknown (late 2017- early 2018 estimate). This is a thorough guide on the Minstrel class, ranging from basics and leveling to in depth builds and old level cap content.


50 Trait Point Starter Builds

This build focuses on DPS, solo play, and leveling through damaging music… and screams.

Blue https://i.imgur.com/c0ueM7V.jpg
This build focuses on keeping everything alive with the power of musical healing… not recommended for solo play.

Yellow https://i.imgur.com/HCjBfeo.jpg
This build focuses on being a serviceable healer while providing powerful buffs and a minor amount of damage. While this is largely oriented towards group content, it can allow solo Minis to complete tough content.
