Once a player has been accepted as a Recruit, they must acquire +200 alignment with the Dúnedain Rangers as well as complete four 'Recruitment Quests' which are assigned by the Lords of the faction. In the event that a Recruit cannot find more than two Lords, each Lord is authorized to give a Recruit up to two quests. These quests can range from resource and item gathering to simply unlocking waypoints in a certain biome.
Once a Recruit has finished all of the above requirements, they will promoted to full Ranger. Once a Ranger, you are eligable to be considered by the King and the Moot/Senate for higher position, such as a Lordship, however these positions are generally only awarded to the most well known Rangers, either by the server community or the faction itself.
