Hytbold is a settlement located within the Sutcrofts in East Rohan. [57.6S, 56.3W]

Hytbold was recently burned down in an attack by Orcs from the East Wall. Fastred has sent you to lead the effort to rebuild the town.


Hytbold in ruin

The following services can be found within Hytbold as it's rebuilt:



There are numerous deeds associated with the rebuilding of Hytbold.


If you finished every quest in Eastern Rohan while leveling up, you should have already reached the following reputation standings:

Note: The quest [80] Speaking the Truth rewards no reputation, while its alternative [80] Inhild's Wish rewards 900 reputation. It may also be possible to get a little more reputation if you complete the quest [80] Leader of the Nink-hai or its alternative [80] The Prisoner Returns.

This means to reach Kindred standing with every faction, you'll need a total of 144,700 reputation. It will take 25 days to do this, assuming you do five quests for Aiding the Eastemnet each day and don't "waste" any reputation on factions that are already at Kindred standing.

Daily quests in each region can provide reputation and cut the days to Kindred standing down to 12 days:

If you intend to rebuild Hytbold completely, you will have no problem reaching Kindred with every faction by the time you finish. However, another option is to use Item:Small Reputation Acceleration Tome to reach kindred with some factions even before you reach level 84, making many more quests available, so that rebuilding can take a much shorter time.

A note about Token costs to complete the rebuilding quests: Originally, most quests cost 5 or 10 Tokens of Hytbold to complete. All quests now cost 1 token to complete. Since many of the available rebuilding quests are gated by Ally and Kindred reputation with the various factions, there may well be times when no rebuilding quests are available, while you continue to do the daily quests to gain the reputation to unlock them.


Aiding the Eastemnet

All of the following quests are repeatable on a daily basis.

  • To begin, a player must first take the daily "wrapper-quest" [85] Aiding the Eastemnet in Hytbold.
  • This "wrapper-quest" allows completion of any five of the following quests that are available on that day.
  • Each town offers four (five on the first time) of the quests from its pool on any given day, for a total of sixteen quests to choose from.
  • The Quests available on any given day are changed daily at 3am EDT Server Time. However, they are presented RANDOMLY, they are not rotated -- which means that the same quest may be presented multiple times in a row!
  • Beginning with Update 10, players can reset the cooldown on the quest Aiding the Eastemnet at a cost of 5 Mithril Coin (5 Mithril Coins) which can be purchased from the LOTRO Store. However, the cooldowns on the sixteen quests randomly available each day cannot be reset. By repeatedly resetting the cooldown on Aiding the Eastemnet, it is possible for a player to complete as many as 16 quests each day, earning 80 Tokens of Hytbold. To Reset the counter, after completing your 5 quests, for Aiding the Eastemnet return to Rinwald in Hytbold and talk to him again. The reset option will now appear. Note that the Mithril Coin icon will show the Hours and minutes remaining on the Cooldown timer (until 03:00 EST), not the cost.
