LOTRO Professions Guide:
Everything You Need to Know About the Prospector

My favorite of the gathering type LOTRO professions, the prospector is a must for the weaponsmith and metalsmith. These guys use massive amounts of ore to make their wares... so be sure to pick a vocation with the prospector if you're going to be making weapons or armour. There are also certain recipes for the woodworker that require ore, but not much. The important thing to know is that he prospector mines the ore and can then smelt it into ingots. If you need ore or ingots... you need a prospector.

The prospector is also great for making gold off of the auction house. Since most crafters need a lot of ore, you can usually sell it for a good price. Sadly most gold farmers out there know this and spend their time farming ore... but you can still make a good living off of it!

The prospector is a solid profession to have any way you look at it. If you're not sure what to pick, you can't go wrong here.

I hope you found my LOTRO Professions Guide helpful. I plan on continuing to add to it, so check back often! And as always, let me know if you ever want information on any other crafting topics or have other requests!
