Hunter Travel Skills in LOTRO

As a Hunter you can learn over the course of your leveling journey around 50 travel skills. Some travel skills are learned automatically as you gain levels, while other travel skills are unlocked by completing Hunter specific quests in an area or through a Factions Reputation for purchase or barter.

About Travel Skills

Your Hunter will gain access to Travel Skills starting around level 22. These spells can be found in your Hunter’s Skills panel [K] under “Travel Skills” each are named “Guide To <Name of Location>” and can be slotted onto your action bars for quick access.

Travel skills take 10 seconds to cast and can be easily interrupted by moving or when hit with an enemy attack. The Quick Draw trait in the red line Bowmaster specialization reduces the cast time of all travel skills by 20% lowering the induction time to 8 seconds.

How to Use Return To Camp

When your Hunter reaches level 26 you will learn the wayfaring skill Return To Camp automatically. You want to place this skill on your action bar and when you come across a campsite in any region, you can interact with the campfire and bind yourself to the camp. Using the skill will then return you (and nearby Fellowship members) to the campsite quickly.

To find campsites, open your map and look for the camp fire icon, there are often multiple campsites in a zone. The Return To Camp skill can be changed as often as you like, similar to how you use a Milestone.

Tips For Slotting Your Travel Skills

So you’re leveling and gaining all these travel skills, here is a quick tip on how you can place some of your guide skills to have better access.

Open your settings Esc > Options > Quickslots select show Bar 4 (or whatever number you haven’t used)

Press CTRL and \ to unlock your User Interface and locate the bar you are seeking, it’s usually in the center area of the screen.

Drag the bar to the desired location, in this example it was placed on the right side of the screen under the Radar. You will want to nudge your quest tracker over a little to make room for the new bar.

Now you can drag up to 12 skills to this bar for easy traveling access! You can always add more bars to the side if you need more skills, or of course press [ K ] on your keyboard to open the Skills panel.

Travel Well!
