Within this hall it is possible for members of the Tailors Guild, to obtain exclusive recipes and exchange items not available to non-guild Tailors.
NOTE: since Update 27, the most accessible guild NPCs are located in The House of Craft in Minas Tirith (Midsummer) , which, unlike Esteldín, is easily accessible to characters of all levels. Moreover, unlike Esteldín, Metalsmith (Armourer vocation) or Cooking (Yeoman vocation) can be guilded in Minas Tirith (Midsummer), on the same trip, since the guild NPCs for those professions are also located there.
- Experience in the Guild is accumulated by double-clicking on the various "patterns" produced from Guild-only recipes.
- Membership in the Tailor's Guild is obtained by speaking with a "Master of Crafting Guilds" found in Crafting halls throughout Middle-earth and joining the Tailor's Guild. You can only be a member of one guild at a time, and you can only be a member of a guild related to your vocation.
- These Guild benefits are also available from Representatives of the Tailor's Guild found in the Craftguilder's Hall at the rear of the Craft-hall of Galtrev in Dunland and in the Craft Hall of Snowbourn in the Sutcrofts in East Rohan.
- Certain Lothlórien recipes are available only from Maenasdir in The Vineyards of Lórien. These recipes require both Guild status and Lothlorien reputation.

In addition to the locations already mentioned, representatives of the Tailor's Guild (named only with generic titles) are found in:
- Maenasdir in The Vineyards of Lórien (Unique recipes only)
- Craftguilder's Hall in Galtrev
- Craft Hall of Snowbourn , in the Sutcrofts, East Rohan
- Aldburg Crafting Hall in the Eastfold
- Library of Saphadzîr in Dol Amroth
- The House of Craft in Minas Tirith (before battle)
- Estolad Lân in the Morgul Vale
In order to gain reputation in your chosen guild, you must:
- Purchase guild recipes from Jarmárr, the Tailor's Guild Pattern Recipes vendor
- Craft any or all of the recipes to make "patterns"; they do not share a mutually exclusive cooldown
- Right-click on the patterns 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 pattern 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.
Membership in the Tailor's Guild rewards its fellow members with Improved Recipes beginning at the Expert tier.
These "Improved, Guild-only Recipes" are for the multiple creation of components (typically 5 at a time) or are "auto-crit" recipes which require various combinations of Patterns in addition to other components for crafting.
The "auto-crit" recipes have as their only output the Critical Success component of an armour piece (typically) from a "standard recipe." In addition to the cool-down timers on these Recipes, there are also cool-down timers on the Patterns involved. Unlike the "standard recipe, which is usually a Single Use recipe, these Guild recipes can be used multiple times, but with a cool-down timer.
Additionally, the Tailor's Guild offers "Legendary Recipes" which, upon obtaining the appropriate level of Crafting expertiese and Guild Reputation, allow the Tailor to craft certain Relics and Third, Second and First Age Legendary Items.
See the Appropriate Guild NPCs to purchase these Guild recipes when you gain the required crafting expertise reputation level:
- Any pattern will increase your guild reputation at any level. (As with all reputation items, simply double click on them to turn them in.)
- By crafting lower tier patterns and storing them in your vault as their cool-down timers expire, you can quickly advance to your next Guild level as needed.
- Large Westfold and Eastemenet Patterns are on the same cool-down period (6 days 18 hours) as the Auto-Crit recipes for T7 and T8 Light and Medium armour.
- Each full set requires you to craft five armour pieces. Each piece requires one Large Pattern in addition to other components.
- T7 (Westfold) lvl 75 Light Armour - Light Armour (Guild) is the "Auto-Crit" version of the Single Use Recipes: Light Armour (Théodred's Riders) or Light Armour (Riders of Stangard) (Great River)
- Note that the Riders of Stangard recipes require Gold Tokens as well as reputation to acquire -- the Guild Recipes are a clear winner!
- T7 (Westfold) lvl 75 Cloak Guild -
- T7 (Westfold) lvl 75 Medium Armour - Medium Armour (Guild) is the "Auto-Crit" version of the Single Use Recipes: Medium Armour (Théodred's Riders) or Medium Armour (Riders of Stangard) (Great River)
- T8 ( Eastemnet) lvl 85 - Light Armour (Guild) is the "Auto-Crit" version of Light Armour 85
