New Player Question

My LIs are almost ready to imbue. I took advantage of the store sale to buy some legacy replacement scrolls so I could have the legacies I want in place before I imbue.

  1. The scrolls don’t have an upper level limit
  2. I selected a replacement for the correct weapon
  3. I selected a minor legacy to replace a minor legacy
  4. The new legacy would be lower ranked than the old legacy

And the system didn’t let me make the replacement. Any ideas why? What am I missing?




  • Ran Glordriel solo through Urugarth multiple times to complete deeds for virtue leveling; it was great revenge for going through on level
  • Cocommentated Hobnanigans tournament with Forte, brought along my frying pans,  and lost count of how many times he said “Pinetree countdown”
  • Listened to the melodious jangling of my steed harness while I walked through Sutcroft fields beheading orcs



  • Forochel is BIG, REALLY Big.
  • Was reminded how important it is to look at your morale bar BEFORE pulling several mobs.
  • Fell victim to the MMO trap… just one more quest.



  • Led the Grrlz of Middle-earth around Evendim and Misty Mountains looking for Roving Threats (missed one in Evendim that just could not be found anywhere).
  • Ran my hunter on Arkenstone through some Evendim questing and got run over by the Roving Threat I’d missed earlier in the week.
  • Did some low-key skirmishing (responsibly!) with Landroval!Teri, who is only 6 skirmishes away from getting her Skirmisher of Middle-earth title.



  • During the field trip, we continued the epic story up to the Deep-way skirmish.
  • My Crickhollow champion ran several skirmishes and reached level 102.
  • Watched Stine’s adventure’s in the Barrow Downs.

  1. Regarding Li question it’s best to ask directly in game but 2 common reasons are:
    1. This LI already have the same legacy (yes, I’ve seen that case several times already)
    2. This LI need reforge.
