    Lightbulb Hytbold: A Guide to Rebuilding and Armour

    This guide may contain spoilers about how rebuilding Hytbold works. If you'd prefer to figure this out on your own, you should stop reading now.

    Credits: This information in this guide was gathered by many dedicated Riders of Rohan beta testers, supplemented by Hytbold's chief architect at Turbine jwbarry, and made possible with the patient assistance of Turbine's fantastic QA team. As with any aspect of an online game, these details may change over time, so your feedback is greatly appreciated, too!

    Special Note: Lunasa has also compiled most of this information in spreadsheet format. See the post below for a link.

    Galuhad has written a Lua plugin to help you keep track of your progress rebuilding Hytbold on multiple characters. You can find out more about Hytbold Assistant at the LOTRO Interface site.

    Short version:
    1. Reach level 84 and do the quests To Hytbold (in your mailbox) and Welcome to Hytbold.
    2. Do the quest Aiding the Eastemnet and five of its related quests every day to earn [Tokens of Hytbold] and raise your reputation standing.
    3. Start rebuilding Hytbold and barter for your class's armour sets with the [Tokens of Hytbold] you earned (see the summaries below).
    4. (Optional) Do the crafting resource instances.
    5. (Optional) Complete deeds and barter for housing decorations.
    6. (Optional) Finish rebuilding Hytbold (a minimum of 44 days), experience the end of the Eastemnet's story, and barter for class armour sets for your alts.
    7. (Optional) If you're still doing dailies at this point, you can exchange your extra [Tokens of Hytbold] for [Silver Tokens of the Riddermark] on a 1 : 1 basis at any Eastemnet Miscellany Quartermaster.

    Post Introduction: Welcome to Hytbold

    Hytbold is a new kind of max-level activity introduced with the Riders of Rohan expansion. Your character's goal is to help rebuild the town of Hytbold through your efforts in the rest of Eastern Rohan.

    You can visit Hytbold at any time. It's located in the northeastern part of the Sutcrofts. If you go there before you begin rebuilding, you'll find the town completely deserted and destroyed. This is a good time to point out that Hytbold will look different to every player rebuilding it. You may see other players interacting with objects or NPCs that aren't visible to you yet.

    Shortly after reaching level 84, your character will receive a letter in the mail from Fastred to enlist your efforts. An attached item will bestow the quest To Hytbold, in which you're sent to Edgal. When you get there, Edgal will bestow another quest, Welcome to Hytbold, that has you visit the town's four districts (named after the four ridings of the Eastemnet) and some of its major buildings. You'll be rewarded [25 Tokens of Hytbold] after this brief tour.

    At this point, Edgal will ask all players to continue with the quest The Mead Hall: Rebuild, which conveniently requires [25 Tokens of Hytbold] to complete. This will be your first taste of how phasing works in the town. You'll notice that the appearance of Mead Hall has improved dramatically, at least on the outside.

    A few new NPCs will be visible to you now, too. If you take a walk around the Mead Hall, you should find 3 barter vendors with your class's icon overhead. Each of them sells a set of 6 pieces of armour intended to work well with one of your class's trait lines. You'll see that helms and jackets each cost [35 Tokens of Hytbold] while the remaining pieces cost [15 Tokens of Hytbold] each.

    Barter vendors for other classes will only become visible only after you completely rebuild Hytbold. The class armour sets bind to account, so you can use shared storage to give them to your alts.

    However, before you can barter for an item, you must first rebuild a specific part of Hytbold. Completing the quests to rebuild Hytbold also uses additional [Tokens of Hytbold]. If you select an item in the barter panel, then hover your mouse over the Barter button at the bottom, a tooltip will tell you which quest you need to complete. Most of these quests won't be available to you until you reach a specific (unmentioned) level of reputation and complete other (unmentioned) prerequisite quests. This guide will help you figure that part out.

    If you're only interested in armour sets for your own class, you can find a summary of which factions to focus on and which rebuilding quests to complete further down in this guide.

    In order to earn [Tokens of Hytbold], you'll have to do a lot of daily quests. Those are explained following the map in the next post.

    Post Aiding the Eastemnet for Tokens of Hytbold

    In order to rebuild Hytbold, you'll need to earn many [Tokens of Hytbold] by completing daily quests elsewhere in Eastern Rohan. These tokens are bound to your character, so when you earn them, spend them wisely.

    Once a day, you can get the quest Aiding the Eastemnet from Rinwald outside the Mead Hall in Hytbold. This allows you to complete five daily quests in Eastern Rohan, each of which rewards [5 Tokens of Hytbold], for a total of [25 Tokens of Hytbold] each day.

    Be sure to finish your five chosen daily quests before 3:00 AM /servertime (U.S. Eastern Time), or you won't be able to pick the quest up again the following day when you finish it.

    You can choose your five daily quests from sixteen quests randomly available each day. There are four quests each in the main settlements of the four areas: Harwick, Cliving, Eaworth, and Snowbourn. Completing a daily quest will also reward you with 1200 reputation for that area's faction.

    Beginning with Update 10, players can reset the cooldown on the quest Aiding the Eastemnet at a cost of [5 Mithril Coins] which can be purchased from the LOTRO Store. However, the cooldowns on the sixteen quests randomly available each day cannot be reset. By repeatedly resetting the cooldown on Aiding the Eastemnet, it is possible for a player to complete as many as 16 quests each day, earning [80 Tokens of Hytbold] total (although for practical purposes, most players will only want to complete 15 quests).

    If you finished every quest in Eastern Rohan while leveling up, you should have already reached the following reputation standings:
    • Men of the Wold: Friend at 18,100 / 25,000 toward Ally.
    • Men of the Norcrofts: Friend at 18,700 / 25,000 toward Ally.
      Note: The quest [80] Speaking the Truth rewards no reputation, while its alternative [80] Inhild's Wish rewards 900 reputation. It may also be possible to get a little more reputation if you complete the quest [80] Leader of the Nink-hai or its alternative [80] The Prisoner Returns. I'm not sure if they both reward the same reputation.
    • Men of the Entwash Vale: Friend at 18,800 / 25,000 toward Ally.
    • Men of the Sutcrofts: Friend at 19,700 / 25,000 toward Ally.
    This means to reach Kindred standing with every faction, you'll need a total of 144,700 reputation. It will take a minimum of 25 days to do this, assuming you do five quests for Aiding the Eastemnet each day and don't "waste" any reputation on factions that are already at Kindred standing.

    If you complete all of an area's daily quests at least once, you'll finish a deed that rewards an extra [25 Tokens of Hytbold]. Completing all four areas' deeds will earn you an additional [25 Tokens of Hytbold]. So even if you find a particular quest challenging, try to complete it at least once for these 125 bonus tokens.

    Although these are all solo quests, you can do them all while in a fellowship. There are three different types of daily quests:

    Mounted combat instances:
    These are walled-off sections of Eastern Rohan where you will only face level 85 mounted opponents. The same quest is available in each area every day. You can enter them by talking to the quest bestower, and leave via a special return horse (shown on the map) or by right-clicking your portrait and choosing Leave Instance. Enemies respawn very quickly in the mounted combat instances, so be careful where you're riding.

    Landscape quests:
    These are quests you actually perform in or near the settlement. One landscape quest is randomly available in each settlement daily. The quests in Harwick are playful, those in Cliving involve your war-steed, in Eaworth you'll be running and jumping, and in Snowbourn all the landscape quests involve fishing. If you don't yet have the fishing hobby, you can train it directly from the quest bestower in Snowbourn.

    Public instance quests:
    Each area has one random public instance with two quests daily. One of the quests will involve defeating 10 enemies, and the other has you perform some related duties in the instance. If you intend to do both, be sure to get both quests from the bestower before you start. You must enter the instance directly from the quest bestower, and leave through an exit or by right-clicking your portrait. The opponents in these public instances are sometimes more challenging than they appear, so feel free to take a friend. You can use your war-steed in a few of these instances too, so experiment with what works best. In the defence and siege quests, if an NPC guard hits an opponent, you will not get quest credit for it, despite the enemies being indicated for open-tapping.

    You can stay in the mounted combat and public quest instances as long as you don't leave and complete their quests. Some of them are especially good for completing slayer deeds.

    Here's an overview of all 49 daily quests, in case you'd like to check them off:

    Post Rebuilding the Town of Hytbold

    Once you've earned some [Tokens of Hytbold], you'll want to begin rebuilding portions of the town.

    There are a total of 162 quests to rebuild Hytbold. That's a lot of quests, but you don't have to do them all. Quests to rebuild Hytbold are linked together through a complex chain of prerequisites. For example, you won't see Interior Enhancements quests for the Mead Hall until after you've completed the corresponding Outdoor Enhancements quests.

    Every quest improves the appearance of Hytbold, but a few of them phase in objects or NPCs with special functionality. Those functional upgrades are indicated in gold below.

    Each rebuilding quest also unlocks a specific piece of gear from the class armour set barter vendors. Those items are marked in teal. (If you are only interested in quests for your own class, see the summaries below.)

    Some quests require more [Tokens of Hytbold] than others to complete. The number of tokens required to complete a quest is noted in (parentheses) after its name.

    Completing these rebuilding quests will also advance deeds for your character. The deeds help you keep track of your rebuilding efforts, and completing them also unlocks some Rohan housing decorations sold by Rinwald outside the Mead Hall. Deeds are colored green in this list.

    Edgal outside the Mead Hall offers 18 quests that require no reputation. NPCs from each of the four ridings of Eastern Rohan offer an additional 18 quests each at Ally and Kindred standing with their factions. You won't see these other quest bestowers until your standing is high enough with their respective factions.

    If you complete all 162 rebuilding quests (which will take a minimum of 44 days), you'll have the opportunity to experience the culmination of Eastern Rohan's story. After completing an instance, you'll earn two titles: "Thane of Hytbold" and "Thane of the Eastemnet". If you continue on to solve a puzzling mystery, you will notice that barter vendors for all the other classes phase in around the Mead Hall. You can now barter for armour for your alts (it's bound to your account) and place it in shared storage.

    Be careful when bartering for armour. The items are not unique, so clicking the barter button twice will give you two of the same item.

    Post Hytbold's Crafting Resource Instances

    As you rebuild Hytbold, you'll notice that three of the buildings come with a special bonus. They phase in crafting resource instances. These are special solo-only quest areas where players with a gathering profession can collect a large amount of resources. Even if you don't have a gathering profession, you can still do the quests in each instance.
    • Rebuilding the Lumber-mill and its Superior Workbench unlocks the forester resource instance, Imping.
    • Rebuilding the Library and its Superior Study unlocks the scholar resource instance, Parphád.
    • Rebuilding the Smithy and its Superior Forge unlocks the prospector resource instance, Iserngraf.
    The quest bestowers and the entrance to the instances are at the top of the hill behind the Mead Hall in Hytbold, on the east end of town.

    Each resource instance has three daily quests: a quest to defeat a signature enemy (the leader) in the instance, a quest to defeat 20 invaders in the instance, and a quest to collect 8 items from the instance (which may be dropped from enemies or found on the ground). Completing each quest gives you a [Token of Effort]. The quest for the leader also gives a choice of rewards related to Legendary Items.

    When you accept the first quest to defeat the leader, a one-hour timer will begin. The remaining two quests will automatically bestow when you enter the instance via the nearby horse, Gangfinda. If you don't finish these quests within an hour, they will fail.

    The type of foes you'll find in each instance changes every day. This can be very helpful in completing slayer deeds.

    The resource nodes in each instance also respawn daily.

    Your [Tokens of Effort] can be exchanged for additional crates of crafting resources, IXP runes, relics, or trade them for [Silver Tokens of the Riddermark] on a 3 : 1 basis.

    Imping (forester resource instance)
    Ethelbryt bestows the quest for Imping, a lumber mill and processing facility that has been overrun.
    Leader The Miller's Foe: defeat the leader of the invaders in Imping
    Rewards a specific tier 5 relic or an IXP rune.
    Invaders Cut Against the Grain: defeat 20 invaders in Imping
    Collection Awls Forgotten: collect 8 heirloom tools in Imping
    Parphád (scholar resource instance)
    Ascbert bestows the quest for Parphád, an underground archive filled with enemies.
    Leader Order of Magnitude: defeat the leader of the invaders in Parphád
    Rewards a legendary weapon title or a fused tier 5 relic.
    Invaders Closed Course: defeat 20 invaders in Parphád
    Collection Good Standing: collect 8 weathered parchments in Parphád
    Iserngraf (prospector resource instance)
    Frithnoth bestows the quest for Iserngraf, a dark and dangerous mine.
    Leader Severance: defeat the leader of the invaders in Iserngraf
    Rewards [Compendium of Middle Earth: Volume IV], a specific tier 5 relic, or an IXP rune.
    Invaders Base Mettle: defeat 20 invaders in Iserngraf
    Collection Extraction: collect 8 uncommon ore in Iserngraf

    The Garsfeld Guppy: catch 4 guppies from moving pools

    I think the names are backwards. On my screen (last time I checked anyway), Healac gives the Landscape Quests and Daggaric gives the Mounted Combat Instance. Unless that was fixed in a recent update (I haven't actually done their quests for a little over a week or so).

    Are you sure about this reward, becouse last night I've completed this quest and did not receive any [Token of Hytbold] as reward ...

    You probably missed it, since the next quest you get is to rebuild Mead Hall, and that will remove your 25 tokens right away

    Are you sure about this (44 days)? 44 days to rebuild Hytbold or to rebuild plus get armor? Does this estimate include the bonus from completing deeds? Thank you.

    44 days, with all the deed bonuses, without the armour set.

    If you bartered for the armour set, add 5 more days.
    If you are missing one quest and can't complete a faction deed (and subsequently the meta deed), add 2 more days.

    Thanks, was just curious if there was a miscalculation because someone on my server says they only had 2 days left. I was thinking how is this possible.

    If they hit 85 on October 15 using task resets (there was one such person on Eldar) and did the quests every day, we'll see them finish this Tuesday. I guess that makes 3 days.

    I'm not on Eldar anymore, back on my original server after 2 years of not being able to transfer due to technical issues.. yay they are resolved. Back to topic, this person said he turned 84 on the 18th. I think his calculations must be wrong or these are wrong, no idea but I guess we'll see soon. :-) Thanks again! :-)

    44 is without getting armour. My main actually does not need it since she uses pvp armour, but it will be nice to be able to get them for my alts.

    Informations en français, par JeuxOnline

    Short link to this guide (in case you want to refer players in-game): tinyurl.com/hytbold

    Credits: This information in this guide was gathered by many dedicated Riders of Rohan beta testers, supplemented by Hytbold's chief architect at Turbine jwbarry, and made possible with the patient assistance of Turbine's fantastic QA team. As with any aspect of an online game, these details may change over time, so your feedback is greatly appreciated, too!

    Special Note: Lunasa has also compiled most of this information in spreadsheet format. See the post below for a link.

    Galuhad has written a Lua plugin to help you keep track of your progress rebuilding Hytbold on multiple characters. You can find out more about Hytbold Assistant at the LOTRO Interface site.

    It would be wonderful if Turbine could reward the creator(s) for devoting an enormous amount of time to a project that has helped so many others. My heartfelt thanks to all who contributed to this amazing guide.

    That's very kind of you to say. Speaking only for myself, I would reply that the challenge of deciphering how Hytbold worked was reward enough.

    Although I'm not the type of player who finds the visual rebuilding of Hytbold very fun, I very much enjoyed being part of the group of testers who helped to untangle the puzzle.

    Thank you for the fantastic guide! I've been doing the Hytbold work for about 5 days now, and I finally understand what I'm doing now that I've read the majority of the guide! LOL...reading am hard!

    I would like to add something for the newbies on this:

    Save your tokens. I kinda started rebuilding willy-nilly, and did some random things that don't directly improve my ability to get the armour (not the biggest deal since I'm 84 still). I kind of wish I'd saved my tokens until I had enough faction/tokens to max out the things I needed more quickly. Though building the stable first did feel smartish...

    I will say I did start without fully reading...terrible personal problem! As for the grind, at first I was a little put off by how little I change things a day. I though "man, this is going to take me forever to finish!" (which is very well may as I'm a completionist!), but then I thought back to Moria, Mirkwood, and trying to do the Solo Dragon pieces (I never got one! Too lazy!). Those took HOURS literally to get one coin/barter item. With this, I can do the quests in under an hour (still working on my speed), and then do something else (usually go to bed!). I really love this, and I hope that in future expansions I have the ability to get good stuff through this because while I love raiding, I really lack the time having a young kid.

    So hey, I'm pleased! Thank you for the excellent guide and the incredibly hard work you've put into it! And cheers for a good system to get me some better equipement! =P

    Hello,

    Awesome guide. My character is just lvl 57 at the moment, but I was wondering how the new expansion and the lvl cap rise will affect this part of the game? Will there be new Hytbold armor sets or will there be something to replace Hytbold altogether?

    It's unclear what will (if anything) happen to Hytbold once the Helm's Deep expansion is released.

    It seems unlikely any new rewards would be added. However, I imagine it will remain an interesting diversion for completionists and players interested in the housing decorations it has to offer.
