One question repeatedly asked with Rohan’s launch is “Where did the Guild Halls go?!”
Thankfully, they didn’t disappear from those areas accessible by your lower level crafting alts. They were relocated nearby to make things more convenient.
Now, these doors have been moved to be in the same room as the forges.
It makes crafting for these guilds a bit more convenient, if a little bit more difficult to find. The sign post directly behind the Forge and Relic-Masters points to the two new doors (with clarification as to which is where if you hover over the signs with your cursor). The doors are also indicated on the mini-map by the blue markers on either side of the forge area.
Also worth mentioning is the new Vault-keeper in the forge area. No more running back to the other side of Thorin’s Hall for that one forgotten crafting material left in storage! This new NPC is off to the right as you enter the room, just before you get to the second set of forges.
The Cook’s Guild is right where you left it last time you visited. That is to say, it is still in Michel Delving’s crafting area, near the Superior Oven.
Vault-keepers seem to be sprouting up all over the place, and this area is no different. The new NPC is to the left of the Cook’s Guild door, hanging out with the Scholar vendor.
The Scholar’s Guild has not moved from the second floor of the Last Homely House. It is still located directly below Elrond’s Library.
However, this location has a couple new additions. There is now a vault-keeper here as well as a Superior Study. Now you will no longer need to run upstairs to craft or downstairs to visit the vault while you’re working on your Scholar’s Guild rep!
The three guild halls once scattered about Esteldin have now had their doors moved to the crafting hall in this town. The Tailor, Jeweller, and Woodworker guild halls are now all within easy reach of the Superior Workbenches and Vault-keeper already in this area.
No changes to the set up in this location. All can be found as they were pre-Rohan.
Crafting Guild Reputation Item Change
There has also been a change to Crafting Guild Reputation items. This was part of an update a while back to the use of reputation items in general, but many of you may have already been at maximum reputation with your chosen crafting guild(s) at the time, and so the change may have gone unnoticed for you.
Now you no longer need to take the Symbol or Emblem or Scroll or whatever it is that your guild crafts and give it to the guild leader. Instead, you simply right-click on the item in your inventory and your reputation automatically increases.
These items will also work with Reputation accelerators bought from the Store or bartered from the Skirmish camp Curiosities vendor. With doubled reputation gain from using an accelerator, you’ll need less than a full set of reputation items from the Expert-Eastemnet crafting tiers to progress from Master of the Guild to Grand Master of the Guild.
