A Beorning needs the following Legendary Items at endgame:

  • One-handed Axe – First Age (Crafted by Weaponsmith)
  • Beorning’s Carving – First Age – Class Item (Crafted by Woodworker)
  • Two-handed Axe – First Age (Crafted by Weaponsmith) [Optional, good for adding extra DPS while in Yellow-line in Raids, and for solo play in Red-line.]

Here is the Legacy List for Beornings.

Imbuement Guide

There are 7 recommended legacies for each LI for endgame. Yellow-line LIs can be used in Red-line as well. I personally use them for Blue-line too, however if you really want to min-max, you can make additional LIs for Blue-line just to keep Tanking focused Relics, but Legacy-wise, Yellow-line Legacies cover Blue-line perfectly well also.

LotroHQ Class Builds covers Yellow and Blue Line only, so here are the recommended Legacies for those lines, (Yellow and Blue-line shares same legacies).

*Note 1: All Legendary Items have 4 Major Legacies by default (with Crystal of Remembrance item). After Reforging a Legendary Item to level 30, chance of getting additional Major legacies is random, you may end up with more, or no more than 4 at all. So, if this list down below requires more than 4 Major Legacies, and you have only 4 Major Legacies, you will have to use an Imbued Legacy Replacement Scroll to cover for it, after you Imbue your Legendary Item. These special scrolls can be earned from Endgame instances, Throne of the Dread Terror Currency Barter, Hobbit Gifts, and bought from the Auction Hall or the Lotro Store.

*Note 2: Stat Legacy Scrolls (such as Legacy of Vitality) can be crafted (Melding) from Relic-Master for 1,886 Shards, or be traded from Daegoth for 250 Medallions (Barter Exchange Trader at Ost Galadh in Mirkwood).

*Note 3: It is recommended that you start with a 1-hander Weapon first for Beorning, and overtime you can build an optional 2-hander to add extra DPS while in groups.

Legendary Items Swaps Guide

Certain classes require certain LI swaps to gain an advantage, these are for buffs like, extra legacies to boost DPS, which you don’t have room for on Main LIs, extra Sprint Duration, making a buff last longer, or to make a Cooldown refresh faster, etc. Non-imbued Legacies have more of these advantages which Imbued Legacies have much lesser of.

Here are the Non-Imbued Swaps needed for Beorning:

Non-Imbued 1-hander LI Weapon Swap (Preferably a Spear for a visual cue)
