An Introduction to Wisdom of the Valar
Revised: 31st July 2015

Mae govannen!

Wisdom of the Valar is a long standing rank 10 kinship on Snowbourn. Since our inauguration on 20th July 2007 we have established itself as one of the premier social kinships of Lord of the Rings Online, engaging with content, kin members and the LOTRO community to assist new gamers as they begin their journeys through Middle Earth and also to provide end-game raid experience to more established fellows.
Wisdom of the Valar prides ourselves on listening to our kin members and responding to their wants and needs, be it via a comprehensive weekly events schedule, a considerable PVP presence, prize-giving social activities or through regular advice, collaboration and trade.
The following summarised information is designed to give you a flavour of what life is like as a kinsman in Wisdom of the Valar. We hope you will find it interesting and informative, and welcome any questions about our kin offer or applications for membership.

Quel fara!

The Marshalls, Leaders and Officers of Wisdom of the Valar


There are two ways to apply for or express an interest in membership to Wisdom of the Valar:

1. Send an in-game tell to any member of Wisdom of the Valar – your enquiry will find its way to an Officer.

2. Post a brief introduction or query to the Recruitment section of the kin website at http://www.wisdomofthevalar.com/phpBB3/viewforum.php?f=24 (you will be required to complete a website registration process to post on the site - we will only ask for an email address from you).

If your application is accepted you will join our kin as a Recruit in the initial stages. We ask that two small tasks are completed to ensure that you are promoted to Kinsman:

1. Complete a brief introduction on our website to tell us about yourself and your LOTRO experiences here: http://www.wisdomofthevalar.com/phpBB3/viewforum.php?f=24

2. Add your main character and your alts to our Event Planner here: http://www.wisdomofthevalar.com/events/index.php (this will enable you to sign up for kin events and ensure that you are eligible for other kin benefits).

You are able to stay with us as a Recruit for seven days though we would encourage you to aspire to promotion sooner! If after seven days you have not completed the two small tasks above to ensure your promotion you are of course under no obligation to remain as a member and we will wish you well as you continue your journey through Middle Earth.


As in many kinships the regular schedule of events in Wisdom of the Valar changes according to the needs of the members. However we do like to try and ensure stability and variety throughout the week, whilst also giving members the opportunity to request their own runs for inclusion at any time.

The current weekly schedule of events is:


Of course there may be some nights when there are multiple events running at different levels. Our website-integrated online Events Planner ensures that events can be added as required, and that members can sign up to them on any of their characters. If there’s not an event for you on the Planner an Officer will gladly assist you in creating and promoting one.

Wisdom of the Valar represents and welcomes all classes of player at all levels.


Wisdom of the Valar has an active and exciting PVP member base, with two dedicated PVP events scheduled each week. These are mixed-ability sessions - new visitors to the PVP maps will be shown the ropes and assisted with their first quests. More experienced members will go off and join the fight whilst staying in the raid to ensure their colleagues leech some reknown or infamy!

Doom of the Valar is the kinship’s well-established Creep Tribe and member Creeps are encouraged to join.



Do you ever feel the pressure of single-handedly waging a one-hero war against the forces of evil is getting too much? You just can’t bring yourself to slay another boar, bear or wolf? Well, no worries! Every couple of months we organise a social event to put some mead back in your tankard! Whether it is a game of Freeze Tag in the Bree Arena, a LOTRO quiz on the forums, a perfect picture competition or even a fearless Chicken Run – we can help!

Kin Lottery:

For just 250 silver a month per character (or more for special lotteries) enter the kin lottery! With regular prize funds of over 20 gold (and even sometimes over 1000 gold!) as well as bonus rewards it’s an opportunity no kinsperson can afford to miss!

Kin Auctions:

On at least a quarterly basis we throw caution (and funds) to the wind and put on our famed Kin Auction Weekend! Pages and pages of discounted items include our super-rare 'flash auctions' - the most desirable items in the game at the time! Our amazing kinnies donate and craft to ensure this is always a fun and successful event.

Kin Band:

Yes, you read that right – we have a kin band! Rhythm Of The Valar are a group of musical artisans who regularly catch up over a few jugs of mead and try to play something vaguely musical! Efforts and successes are posted on the kin YouTube channel.


http://www.wisdomofthevalar.com is where we escape to engage and integrate when we are not slaughtering orcs or skinning wargs. Our extensive website and forums provide not only the gateways to the Kin Social events and Events Planner but also a wealth of guidance, trade opportunities and discussion about all aspects of Wisdom of the Valar and Lord of the Rings Online.

As a non-member you can browse our front pages and announcements, and post an intro in the Recruitment section. As a member you’ll be engaging in discussions about new content, new tactics, new opportunities and how we can keep Wisdom of the Valar growing and improving for its members.
