Wardens of Annuminas - Ally rep vendor in Tinnudir
If the 50 Turbine Points you can earn per faction weren't enough, the November Update brought important changes to the LOTRO reputation system
  • New reputation rewards, including signature mounts for most factions.
  • New reputation meta-deeds that also reward special mounts.
  • You can now earn reputation from some skirmishes and tasks.
  • Most Haudh Iarchith deeds have been lowered to 25 (and unlock at 20).
  • Reputation now has it's own tab in the Deed Log.

Faction Mounts

Steed of the Elf-lords - pony size!
Six factions now have new mounts: Mathom Society, Eglain, Rangers of Esteldin, Elves of Rivendell, Dwarves of Thorin's Hall and the Council of the North (yes, that makes two!). A second Malledhrim barter steed was added with in the December 6th patch. Want to see what they look like? We recommend LOTRO Steeds for the awesome pictures and comprehensive information on all LOTRO mounts.

In addition, you can now earn mounts from reputation meta-deeds:
  • Completing Ambassador to the Elves (must be Kindred with Elves of Rivendell, Galadhrim and Malledhrim) earns you the Steed of the Elf-Lords, the title "Ambassador to the Elves" and 20 TP.
  • Completing World Renowned (Kindred with Algraig, Bree, Mathom Society, Thorin's Hall, Rivendell, Eglain, Esteldin, Annuminas, Council of the North, Forochel and Grey Company) earns you the Steed of Eriador, the title "World Renowned" and 50 TP.

New Ways to Earn Reputation

A Beta-version of a new game system, Tasks, was added in the November Update. In addition to paying some extra XP, tasks let you turn some of your vendor trash into reputation, but with some significant restrictions. Note that the level of tasks is often lower than the quests for the same area, so check the task board first thing when you arrive in a new area. See the Task System Guide on Lorebook to get started.

The other new way to earn rep is skirmishes! The daily quest for some skirmishes now includes +700 rep among the rewards.

Reputation by Level

The chart below shows the adventurer factions currently in-game and the ways you can earn reputation, by level and content. Not included are the Inn League and Ale Association, or any of the crafting guilds.
  • For reputation barter items, we show the level of the introductory quest which unlocks the barter exchange.
  • For quests, we show the actual quest level. Note that many quests unlock 5 levels before the level shown. For example, you can do the Introduction to Mathoms quest as early as level 30.
  • For tasks, we show the level range of the available task quests. Note that tasks can only be accepted by characters at or no more than 4 levels above the task level. For example, if your character is 31, you can accept task levels 27-31.
