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 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.)

  • These instances require quests to enter. Those quests provide selectable resources.

Gaining Reputation for Master Sub-Factions

The Weapons, Armour and Provision sub faction reputation points are only gained thru the use of reputation items by "right-clicking" them. A few of these items can be acquired thru deeds and quests but to gain sufficient points you need to craft many more. These items are also used to barter.

Repeatable Quests

These quests reward reputation items:

Thurindol - Solo Resource and Crafting Dungeons
Candúr - Fellowship Resource and Crafting Dungeons
