'I see that you have recently gained access to the Woodworker's Guild, friend. That is a great achievement on the path of crafting.

'The Guild is a faction that can grant eligible crafters advantages in their craft. In the beginning, you can access better recipes than what you normally find in the world. As you increase in reputation, you gain access to yet more recipes.

'It is never too early to start building your reputation with the Woodworker's Guild. The leader can be found in Esteldín in the North Downs.'

NOTE: The Guilds are Reputation factions that grant advantages in recipe execution. Reputation is increased by bartering special crafted items.


The Woodworker's Guild is a society for the finest woodworkers throughout Middle-earth.

Objective 1

Viola Brockhouse, the Woodworker's Guild-leader is in the guild hall in Esteldín.

The Master of Crafting Guilds has instructed you to speak with Viola Brockhouse to learn more about the Woodworker's Guild.

Viola Brockhouse: 'Welcome to the Woodworker's Guild! This is an excellent faction for woodworkers who are looking to benefit from their expertise.
'As the leader of this faction, it is my role to oversee the advancement of your reputation as you trade your items in. I will gladly collect everything you make from our own Guild-recipes!
'To collect the recipes to make the items I seek, you should speak with Guthki, then with Tawarbes. They will help you to get started.'
NOTE: The role of the Guild-leader is to trade crafted, barterable items in exchange for reputation with the Guild.

Objective 2

Guthki is in the Woodworker's Guild-hall in Esteldín.

Viola Brockhouse has directed you to speak with Guthki to look at what recipes he sells.

Guthki: 'You will notice that I have many new recipes for sale. As your crafting ability increases, more recipes will become available, so check back with me often!
'The carvings are made from the recipes I sell; those items are the ones you may give to Viola Brockhouse in exchange for reputation. This is the only way to gain reputation. It's best to start early!'
NOTE: This recipe vendor sells the recipes that let you create unique barter items. The output items are traded for reputation with the Guild.

Guthki offers many important recipes

Objective 3

Tawarbes is in the Woodworker's Guild-hall in Esteldín.

Viola Brockhouse has directed you to speak with Tawarbes to look at what recipes she sells.

Tawarbes: 'I am the vendor you should come to when you are ready to reap your rewards. I might not have anything you can use just yet, but my recipes will be available once you advance your reputation with us!
'The goods that you can make from my recipes are far superior to any other recipe you find and will guarantee the utmost success in crafting. Make sure you come back again once you reach Acquaintance level with the Woodworker's Guild!'
NOTE: The improved recipes sold at this vendor are the rewards for gaining reputation with the Guild.

Tawarbes offers advantageous rewards for members of the Woodworker's Guild
