The Inn League (Reputation)

From Lotro-Wiki.com
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Description

Originally founded by spirit-loving Hobbits, The Inn League has since opened its membership to any who enjoy the pleasures of strong drink.

Location

The Inn League is headquartered in the Bird and Baby Inn in Michel Delving in the Shire, though there are Inn League members throughout Eriador. The Inn League rooms are only available to those of Friend reputation or better.

Gaining Reputation

Reputation quests are only available during Festivals.

Introductory Quest

To achieve Acquaintance status with The Inn League, players must complete the Inn League Initiation quest-series at the Party Tree, in the Shire.

  1. [...] Inn League Initiation -- Party Tree
  2. [...] Inn League Initiation -- Plough and Stars
  3. [...] Inn League Initiation -- Golden Perch
  4. [...] Inn League Initiation -- Floating Log
  5. [...] Inn League Initiation -- Green Dragon
  6. [...] Inn League Initiation -- Ivy Bush
  7. [...] Inn League Initiation -- Bird and Baby

Inn League Trial (repeatable once a day)

  1. [5] Inn League -- Party Tree Trial at the Hill
  2. [5] Inn League -- Plough and Stars Trial at Brockenborings
  3. [5] Inn League -- Golden Perch Trial at Stock
  4. [5] Inn League -- Floating Log Trial at Frogmorton
  5. [5] Inn League -- Green Dragon Trial at Bywater
  6. [5] Inn League -- Ivy Bush Trial at Hobbiton
  7. [5] Inn League -- Bird and Baby Trial at Michel Delving

General Quests

The final quest, Inn League Initiation -- Bird and Baby, gives 10,000 reputation thus reaching Acquaintance.

After completing the Initiation quests and becoming an Inn League Member, players can repeatedly do the Inn League Initiation quest series since it is repeatable once a day and grants 1200 reputation with the Inn League each time the series is completed.

Each beverage needs a different time for drinking. At every station, your hero needs 3, 5, 7, or 9 sips for a beverage. Since time is limited, you will run in time trouble if choosing the slowest beverage. The following table shows this:

Location Station 3 sips 5 sips 7 sips 9 sips
The Hill Party Tree Gunderic's Ale Fern Beer Rootknot’s Cider Perry's Porter
Greenfields Plough and Stars Rootknot’s Cider Gunderic's Ale Perry's Porter Fern Beer
Stock Golden Perch Fern Beer Perry's Porter Gunderic's Ale Rootknot's Cider
Frogmorton Floating Log Perry's Porter Rootknot's Cider Fern Beer Gunderic's Ale
Bywater Green Dragon Gunderic's Ale Fern Beer Rootknot's Cider Perry's Porter
Hobbiton Ivy Bush Rootknot’s Cider Gunderic's Ale Perry's Porter Fern Beer
Michel Delving Bird and Baby Perry's Porter Rootknot's Cider Fern Beer Gunderic's Ale

Also, after finishing the first initiation quest series, several other single quests become available from Inn League Member NPCs throughout Eriador. These repeatable (once a day) single quests are timed quests that require the player to get the NPC in question a certain kind of beer, wine, or ale within an hour.

Delivery Quests

There are several quests that ask you to fetch an Inn League member a drink from far away within a time limit. It is possible to pick up the drink first, travel to the delivery location, acquire the quest, and complete it immediately. It also goes well with The Inn League Challenge. Quests can be repeated daily; after finishing a quest, selecting the Inn League member again will tell you how many hours you must wait. Each completion gives +900 reputation for the Inn League, -500 reputation for the Ale Association, and a Badge of Taste.

You can also take all 11 quests from one of the Inn League Tavern Keeps.
