    How to Search

    When it comes to searching out your information on the Lord of the Rings Online wiki, it can actually be a bit tricky. So, there are a few search tips that you should know when it comes to the LOTRO wiki:

    * Don't search out a long list of terms - the easier the search terms that you put in, the better results you will get.

    * Don't use punctuation in your search - this will actually confuse the wiki search, unless you have a specific term (like a dungeon name) that has an apostrophy in it

    * Make your search as general as you can - you can then use links to narrow down your search and find the specific article you want

    Top Content

    This is a great way to find some of the most common information. In this area, you'll find the editor's pick (which is usually changed each day or week), the most visited articles (which usually include dungeon guides, class guides, and other information on new content in the game), the highest voted articles, and articles that have been changed or updated recently. This is a great area to search out information on new game content, upcoming changes, higher level content, and other newer information that you need to know about.
