|Location:||The Last Homely House|
The Scholar's Guild is a crafting guild that is found on the second floor of the southern wing, just under Elrond's Library. It can sometimes be hard to spot the door label as it hovers near the ceiling. This guild rewards scholars that have gained required standing with access to improved or special recipes; see the vendors respectively.
NOTE: since Update 27, the most accessible guild NPCs are located in The House of Craft in Minas Tirith (Midsummer) , which, unlike Rivendell, is easily accessible to characters of all levels. Moreover, unlike Rivendell, Weaponsmith can also be guilded in Minas Tirith (Midsummer) on the same trip, since the guild NPCs for that profession are also located there.
- The guild also has representatives in:
- the Vineyards of Lórien in Lothlórien - Maenasdir sells scrolls containing unique Lothlórien recipes for all trades. These require various reputation levels with the respective guilds and the Elves of Lothlórien;
- the Craftguilder's hall in Galtrev in Dunland;
- the Crafthall of Snowbourn in the Sutcrofts in East Rohan;
- the Crafting Hall of Aldburg in West Rohan;
- the Library of Saphadzîr in Dol Amroth;
- The House of Craft in Minas Tirith (before battle)
- the Crafting Hall of Dale in the Strongholds of the North;
- within the camp of Estolad Lân in the Morgul Vale
Within the guild hall is also a Vault-keeper found. It should also be noted that within the guild-hall is also a Superior Study conveniently located.

In order to gain reputation in your chosen guild, you must:
- Purchase guild recipes from Melongene Took, the Scholar's Guild Scroll Recipes vendor
- Craft any or all of the recipes to make "scrolls"
- Right-click on the scrolls to gain guild reputation. Consider using a reputation accelerator (may be granted by Hobbit presents, or purchased from Marks vendor).
- Remember to repeat the process of making each scroll each day, and consume it to gain reputation.
- with normal real life interruptions, a character can gain Westemnet standing with the Guild in about a month
- The easiest way to reach Honoured (Minas Ithil) Master of the Guild standing is to have the Minas Morgul Expansion.
- If you don't have the Minas Morgul Expansion you can use the "old" guild recipes to gain the 200.000 rep needed.
