The Host of the West is a reputation faction for the March of the King in North Ithilien. The faction loot is bartered with large numbers of Herbs. It has 3 different barters in North Ithilien and 3 different sub factions and barters for the the Wastes expansion.

The Rohirrim and Gondorian soldiers march with Aragorn from Aragorn's Pavilion in Pelennor (After Battle), through Osgiliath (After Battle) turning at The Crossroads (After Battle) to head north through North Ithilien to encamp at the edge of Dagorlad before marching on Morannon, the Black Gate, at the edge of Mordor.

The Rangers of Ithilien have moved from South Ithilien to the Camp of the Host in North Ithilien to prepare the way for them.

Location and Dramatis personæl or Officals

There are three sets of faction barterers that are found associated with the Northward March of the King toward the Black Gate:

(Note that not all barterers are available at locations before reaching the Camp of the Host. Some have minimum level 100 or 105 requirements.)

Where do these Reputation Items come from?

Gathering: Phials of Extract

All of the herbs can be gathered from the various plants found in North Ithilien and the Wastes

Resource Instances: Phials of Extract

There are two so-called "Resource Instances." These are different from previous "Crafting Instances."

These each have two versions -- one Solo and one Fellowship, for a total of four (4) "dailies."
In these instances you may encounter resource nodes and mob drops.
  • Skoironk provides Prospector Nodes
  • Towers of the teeth (Charchost) provides Scholar nodes
  • There are also random ground spawn of various Flora in both
  • Mobs may drop random Resources and Single-use Recipes in both
IMPORTANT NOTE: The final boss (in both) has a chest. To open that chest requires that you purchase Set of Brittle Lock-picks-icon.png Set of Brittle Lock-picks from the Herbalist (Host of the West) BEFORE you enter the instance!!! Cost: 20Phial of Violet Extract-icon.png Phial of Violet Extract 20Phial of Golden Extract-icon.png Phial of Golden Extract
These instances require quests to enter. Those quests provide selectable resources.

Crafting: Weapons, Armor and Provisions

These reputation items can also be “easily” crafted by the various crafts with a little organization.
The crafting recipes for Host of the West are automatically bestowed to all Anórien level (T10) crafters under “Host of the West."
