Throughout Middle-earth there are various factions, who may reward you if you gain sufficient standing (reputation) in their eyes.
Reputation may be gained by completing quests, defeating specific mobs, turning in specific mob-drop items, crafting items, and completing deeds. Handing in of Reputation Items was previously achieved through quests or a vendor interface with a reputation NPC, but the vast majority of reputation items can now be double-clicked and redeemed directly out of inventory.

Benefits of Reputation
- There are two primary benefits gained by earning reputation -
- Reduced Travel and/or Repair costs
- Access to certain "restricted access" items - especially true with Crafting Guild reputation
- Benefits listed in this table may vary by faction. In particular, Travel and Repair benefits often occur at different levels. See Vendor and Travel Discounts for details.
- While reputation vendors are unlocked at Acquaintance, some of the items they sell can only be used with higher levels of reputation.

Table of Reputation Factions:
- Level pertains to the region levels in which each faction presides. Some factions (such as those with Missions) can give reputation at lower player levels.
- World Renowned is a meta-deed which requires Kindred standing with the factions marked with an X in the World Renown column.
- Ambassador to the Elves is a meta-deed which requires Kindred standing with the three Elvish factions marked with an X in the Ambassador column.
Factions by Region
Completing a reputation deed can provide titles, travel discounts, bonuses and will allow the purchase of special reputation items and horses.
Most reputation titles are awarded on completion of a deed.
Some items are dropped by creatures that provide reputation when right-clicked. Some items can only be purchased after you have sufficient reputation, most notably horses.
Some quests reward reputation upon completion. There are a number of crafting quests that require the creation of items that reward reputation and once the quest is complete it also rewards reputation.
