Jump to: navigation, search
The Host of the West is a reputation faction with the March of the King in North Ithilien

Lore

The Rohirrim and Gondorian soldiers march with Aragorn from Aragorn's Pavilion in Pelennor (After Battle), through Osgiliath (After Battle) turning at The Crossroads (After Battle) to head north through North Ithilien to encamp at the edge of Dagorlad before marching on Morannon, the Black Gate, at the edge of Mordor.
The Rangers of Ithilien have moved from South Ithilien to the Camp of the Host in North Ithilien to prepare the way for them.
The Host of the West is encamped at Camp of the Host (Aragorn's Camp).
The Rangers of Ithilien hidden base is at Henneth Annûn in North Ithilien. They also maintain a forward base at Haerondir in the Wastes.

Faction Barterers

The various faction barterers can be found in each of locations associated with the northward March of the King toward the Black Gate:
(Note that not all barterers are available at locations before reaching the Camp of the Host.)
The goods available and requirements for bartering are different for each barterer.
Goods available are governed by Reputation level with the Host of the West. Some have minimum level 100 or 105 requirements.
Thses barterers require additional reputation with themselves.

Reputation Items

Host of the West: Armour - Metal Scrap (Wastes)-icon.png Metal Scrap and Armour (Wastes)-icon.png Armour
Host of the West: Provisions - Salt (Wastes)-icon.png Salt and Provisions (Wastes)-icon.png Provisions
Host of the West: Weapons - Broken Blade (Wastes)-icon.png Broken Blade and Weapons (Wastes)-icon.png Weapons
These are typical reputation items - you click on the item to "use" it - i.e.to cause the reputation to be “turned in.”
(Note: This can be done anywhere, anytime, not just with the Barterer.
You can alt-right-click on a stack and then "use" the entire stack at one time.)
However, these reputation items are like those of Central Gondor or Far Anórien - ones that are used for both reputation gain and barter.
As in the other recent reputation implementations — once you have reached the appropriate reputation level, you barter the same items (usually multiple items) to acquire goods from the associated Reputation Vendors. In this case, those Reputation Vendors are found at the Camp of the Host and in Haerondir:

Where do these Reputation Items come from?

Resource Instances

There are two so-called "Resource Instances." These are different from previous "Crafting Instances."
These each have two versions -- one Solo and one Fellowship, for a total of four (4) "dailies."
In these instances you may encounter resource nodes and mob drops.
  • Skoironk provides Prospector Nodes
  • Towers of the teeth (Charchost) provides Scholar nodes
  • There are also random ground spawn of various Flora in both
  • Mobs may drop random Resources and Single-use Recipes in both
IMPORTANT NOTE: The final boss (in both) has a chest. To open that chest requires that you purchase Set of Brittle Lock-picks-icon.png Set of Brittle Lock-picks from the Herbalist (Host of the West) BEFORE you enter the instance!!! Cost: 20Phial of Violet Extract-icon.png Phial of Violet Extract 20Phial of Golden Extract-icon.png Phial of Golden Extract
These instances require quests to enter. Those quests provide selectable resources.

Crafting

These reputation items can also be “easily” crafted by the various crafts with a little organization.
The crafting recipes for Host of the West are automatically bestowed to all Anórien level (T10) crafters under “Host of the West."
