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.

  2. Access to certain "restricted access" items - especially true with Crafting Guild reputation

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.
