Overview

A Reflecting Pool is an object that allows player characters to access Quest Instances which they have already completed. This allows them to relive past quest experiences or to assist their fellows in order to help them complete certain quests.

  • Note that it also works for players wishing to join their fellowship in a quest instance that is on a quest chain they either do not have or have not advanced far enough yet, as long as someone in the fellowship has entered the instance encounter.
  • In order to use the pool, stand beside it and right-click to activate it. Select the instance encounter that you would like to enter, then select "Travel Now" to be instantly brought inside.
  • The pool will not work for World Instances or Raids.
  • The pool does not work if you have not previously completed the quest involved.
  • Reflecting Pools were extremely significant before Volumes I, II and III of the Epic Quest line were all made '"soloable." They represented the only mechanism available for players to recruit folks to assist them in a fellowship where the Instance was too difficult for solo play. There was no Inspired Greatness bonus back in the early years of LOTRO.
  • Sage of Eriador: Completing certain Instances accessible through Reflecting Pools (Volume I, Book 4, Chapter 6 onwards) award Mark of Triumph. Visit the "Sage of Eriador" standing adjacent to the pool upon completing the instance to collect your Mark. The Sage also barters Marks for certain rewards. These can be bartered for Helegrod lvl 50 Armour from the class traders in The Last Homely House in Rivendell.

Note:

The Chronicle of Events allows you to replay certain Session Play quests in the Epic Quest line, once per day.
In Session Play, you are a "witness to history" -- a participant through the eyes and ears of another -- a contemporary of the event being related.
