Deeds are special tasks which reward the character with Items, Skills, Titles, Traits, LOTRO Points, and more. If you are in an area that you have not bought from the LOTRO Store (ex. Rivendell), you cannot have deeds bestowed to you that pertain to that area. Some deeds may also be locked and, therefore, not bestowed at the proper place because you have not reached the appropriate level. For example, you can access Moria at Level 45, but its deeds are not unlocked until Level 50, so they will not be bestowed. There are several different types of Deeds.
The Deed Log presents each deed with some sort of wax seal. Generally this seal indicates the type of deed, such as a spyglass for Exploration Deeds, or crossed swords for Slayer Deeds. The following sections describe the content of the Deed Log, followed by generic information about different deed types.
For every 40 deeds completed, the maximum number of current quests is increased by 1, to a maximum of 50.
A list of all LP gained from deeds can be found at Acquiring LOTRO Points from Deeds.
First Page of Deed Log
The first page of the Deed Log has four tabs for Class, Race and Social, Epic, and Reputation respectively. Each of these tabs has different filtering options which also indicates what deed types may go under them.
When you leave the Starter Area and achieve the Novice passive skill, using some of your class skills unlocks class deeds. Most class deeds require that you use certain skill or skills a certain number of times, and some deeds need critical hits with those skills. The skills may be active like Penetrating Shot as well as passive like Parry. Completing a class deed is rewarded with LOTRO Points, and completing a whole tier of deeds grants 1 class trait point. Each class deed has its own daily limit of progression. When the limit is reached, the deed's progress bar in Deed Log becomes bright-yellow. The limit is reset at 00:00 Server Time (the /servertime command displays the current Server Time). The LOTRO servers use Eastern Time which is UTC−05:00 when winter time is observed, and UTC−04:00 when summer time is observed.
Filter: Most deeds in the Class tab are based on your class. The available filters are "Lore" and "All" :
- Beorning Deeds
- Burglar Deeds
- Captain Deeds
- Champion Deeds
- Guardian Deeds
- Hunter Deeds
- Lore-master Deeds
- Minstrel Deeds
- Rune-keeper Deeds
- Warden Deeds
Racial and Social
Filter: Deeds at the Racial and Social tab may be filtered for the following sub-types: Explorer, Lore, Reputation, and Slayer.
Once a character has reached certain levels, Racial deeds are unlocked by defeating creatures which are most hated by your race. Defeating enough of those creatures will complete that deed and grant you a Racial Trait.
- Beorning Racial Deeds
- Dwarf Racial Deeds
- Elf Racial Deeds
- High Elf Racial Deeds
- Hobbit Racial Deeds
- Race of Man Deeds
- Stout-axe Racial Deeds
Social deeds involve event and festival deeds, or from being the target of another player's emotes (e.g. /hug or /crazy). They reward for example festival tokens, titles, special emotes, and more.
Epic Deeds are advanced by completing each book of the Epic Quest line. Shadows of Angmar has two title rewards, while Mines of Moria has three. Epic Deeds also include such deeds as the Discovering the Descendant deed and other deeds related to the Epic storyline in some way.
Deeds related to Reputation involve becoming known, ally, and kindred with regional factions and meta-deeds thereof, as well as other deeds that relate to reputation, e.g. the Up-and-Comer. The regional faction deeds are furthered by earning faction points, which come from quests, certain looted items which may be consumed for faction points, or from completing yet other deeds which render faction points. They reward for example a title, LOTRO Points, items, etc.
Notice: Several other deed types may be filtered for "Reputation". Those "reputation deeds" are sub-types of their parent deed type respectively but are not considered being a "Reputation Deed" described here. However, see the "Deeds by Type" section below.

Deeds by Type
As implied by the several wax seals there are several deed categories. At Lotro-Wiki we categorize deeds as they appear in the Deed Log, but we also narrow down per region, making it possible to find for example all slayer deeds available in Bree-land.
Other deed types:
- Event Deeds - Available only during Events and Festivals
- The Ale Association Deeds - During Festivals, party as Dwarves do
- The Inn League Deeds - During Festivals, party as Hobbits do
- Hobby Deeds - Occupy yourself with a Hobby for a change
- Epic Deeds
Your character has probably activated and is advancing certain deeds without being aware of it, those deeds are called Hidden Deeds. Such deeds may be furthered by own actions, but also by being target of other character's actions, such as being the target of certain emotes.
Hidden deeds are revealed when upon deed completion and rewards are granted.
Some Deeds are activated upon completion of another deed, they are called Meta-deeds. To complete a meta-deed your character must complete several other deeds. However, considering the rewards it may be worthwhile completing these meta-deeds, in spite of the considerable effort.
