Each class can obtain 3 legendary traits that provide a special class-specific skill when equipped through a town minstrel by collecting all 8 pages of a specific book.
Books drop randomly in areas with level 39+ mobs or can be obtained through the auction house. For two books of each class, pages WILL NOT drop until the book has been obtained and the appropriate NPC has been visited. Once the NPC has been visited, the initial quest will be converted into a deed (not a quest) so look for status updates in your deed log.
Legendary traits may be completed at level 39 but the first legendary trait slot does not open until level 41.
After the book has been converted to a deed, pages will auto-magically be applied to the deed rather than fill up your backpack.
NPC's who convert the initial quest into a deed:
Boromir for Captain
Elrond and Gandalf for Loremasters
Bilbo Baggins for Burglars
Legolas for Hunters
Samwise for Guardians
Gimli for Champions
Lindir for Minstrels

Please feel free to add comments to this thread with your experience and I will update it. We have all struggled at some point with trying to figure out the whole legendary skill thing, so please don't hesitate to ask for clarifications if you need it. I am not an expert but have completed all 3 of the hunter legendary skills so I know what to expect in a general sense.
The Free People of Middle Earth need you in the fight against the Dark Lord Sauron and his minions. Will you answer the call and join the forces of good in the War of the Ring?
