LOTRO League of the Axe Quests and Reputation

The League of the Axe faction in the LOTRO Wildwood region is one of two groups keen to take advantage of the wood’s provision. Unlike the the Woodcutter’s Brotherhood, however, the League of the Axe are wanting to settle here. This guide will contain no story spoilers (which was true of my Brotherhood guide too) – it’s important to me that you enjoy the story as it unfolds – and it is a good one! Right, time for you to learn about the league. I hope you’re ready to prove yourself!

Where do I start the League of the Axe Quests?

The League is based at Trader’s Wharf on the East side of the Brandywine River in Evendim. If you’re unsure how to reach it, pop over to my LOTRO Wildwood Guideexlink for instructions. (this will open in a new window or tab, so you don’t lose your place here.)

All your main quest-givers and vendors are in this location.


League of the Axe NPCs

It looks like there are far more quest-givers here than in Trestlebridge. However, some of those marked as “League of the Axe” are part of the story as it develops, rather than having more repeatable quests.

Enid Nettlesting

LOTRO Enid Nettlesting, primary Quest-giver for the Wildwood League of the Axe storyline
Enid is your primary contact with the League of the Axe and it is mostly through her that the story will progress. This happens each time you reach a new level of reputation with the League.

  1. Daily Repeatable Quest Food on the Shores
  2. Daily Repeatable Quest Traps in the Wild

Minda Heathertoes

LOTRO Minda Heathertoes at Trader's Wharf, where she starts her own questline.
The Hobbit Minda Heathertoes has her own story, which begins with her goods being stolen by brigands. This is why the poor girl is crying when you first meet her. The quests in her story do grant League of the Axe reputation. Her questline begins with Tumbled Suppliesexlink (link goes to the Wiki).

Mal Knapweed Daily Repeatable Quest

Quartermaster

The Quartermaster at Trader’s Wharf has various goods available for sale. Here you can trade Marks of the WildMarks of the Wild and League of the Axe TokensLeague of the Axe Token.

Other NPCs

The other standard NPCs around here are:

  • Hobby-Master: there are fishing quests in the Wildwood, so if you have not learned the LOTRO Fishing Hobby, you can do so here. The Hobby-Master is fishing on the jetty.
  • Healer
  • Supplier
  • Provisioner
  • Dock-Master: Boats to Buckland, King’s Crossing, Tinnudir

There is no missions stable here as there’s no missions NPC. All Wildwood Missions are factionless quests but start at Radhril in Trestlebridge in the Woodcutter’s Brotherhood area.


Earning League of the Axe Reputation

Just as a heads-up, the maximum reputation you can achieve with the League is Ally. For the Brotherhood, it is Kindred. I suspect this is an RP thing, as you are not settling with them. You are a dependable ally, but you are not of their people. That’s guesswork, but it’s the best reason I could come up with.
Reputation Sources
As with the Brotherhood, earning League of the Axe reputation is achieved through a combination of things:

  • Progressing the LotA Storyline
  • Completing the 10-Quest wrapper of factionless quests
  • Carrying out League-specific repeatable dailiesDaily Repeatable Quest
  • Completing the only LotA Deed
  • Consuming League of the Axe Tokens League of the Axe Token (please do remember to consume them! Default: Right Click). These give you 1,000 Reputation each, before any acceleration tomes.

Reputation Deeds?

As I mentioned in my Woodcutter’s Brotherhood Guide, most deeds in the Wildwood do not grant reputation. However, the League does have one deed of its own.

This requires you to complete just 15 League Quests.

The only other reputation deeds are the…reputation increase deeds. This is only because they grant bonus League reputation tokensLeague of the Axe Token upon completing each standing level, rather than “direct rep”.

League of the Axe Tokens

Consumable League of the Axe Tokens League of the Axe Token. These are worth 1,000 Reputation each when consumed. This is before any bonuses through reputation acceleration tomes, for example. These tokens are awarded for completing LotA-specific quests as well as actual reputation for completing them.

Completing the LotA deed also grants a bonus 4×League of the Axe Token.

Be aware that rewards at the Quartermaster are available for both Tokens of the Wild Marks of the Wild and League of the Axe Tokens League of the Axe Token.

The League of the Axe (Deed)

Completing this deed gives you:
League of the Axe Token × 4
Virtue XP × 2,000
Title the Trapper
Reputation +700 with the League of the Axe


Daily 10-Quest Wrapper

Requires: The Wealth in Trust.

Also rather inventively named, The League of the Axe (Daily) requires you to complete 10 × factionless quests in and around the Wildwood.
These can be

Daily Reward

  • Woodcutter’s Brotherhood Reputation: 1,200
  • 4 × League of the Axe Token (consume for +4,000 Reputation, or save to barter.)


League of the Axe Quests

The Wealth in Trust

Not Repeatable
Quest-Giver:
Enid Nettlesting.

Whether or not you can join the League of the Axe is not a decision that Enid makes. If you prove yourself worthy, then you can join it. There are two parts but with four components to the test given to you.


The Wealth in Trust Stages
Scouting | Collect Pelts | Collect Ore Samples | Repairs


Part 1: Scouting
The first part is to scout key locations within the Wildwood of Bree-land, while bringing back some ore samples and skins from creatures within the Wood.

Note: the creatures/enemies in these locations change from time-to-time. It's a dynamic I really love about the Wildwood.


The Wealth in Trust Stages
Scouting | Collect Pelts | Collect Ore Samples | Repairs

Scouting | Collect Pelts | Collect Ore Samples | Repairs



Part 2: Carrying Out Repairs
Knowing the land is only part of the test. The other – and I really like this – is to test “your work ethic”. You need to repair some of the League of the Axe’s tools. All of these can be found around Trader’s Wharf. As items can be behind other objects or people, I suggest you put floaty names on.


Repeatable Dailies

As with the Woodcutter’s Brotherhood, there are four dailies that grant League of the Axe Reputation and Tokens.

League of the Axe Dailies
A Drift of Supplies | Food on the Shores | Sharpening Axes | Traps in the Wild

A Drift of Supplies Daily Repeatable Quest

Quest-Giver: Tegwen Spurrey

The Writhenset mine is a key location in the League’s strategy, though I will not tell you why. However, as with all mines, they need to be safely supported. Tegwen, rightly, doesn’t want to cut down trees for this purpose. Instead, she proposes you utilise driftwood from the banks of the Brandywine.

You may as well clear A Drift of Supplies at the same time as Food on the Shores.

Rewards

  • Reputation +500
  • League of the Axe Token × 4 (worth 4,000Reputation or keep for bartering)


Food on the Shores Daily Repeatable Quest

Quest-Giver: Grun Curldock

It’s all well and good wanting to settle at Trader’s Wharf, but you don’t want to go hungry in the process! Thankfully Grun has already started thinking of one source of food – fish from the Brandywine. There are a lot of nets you can check, but shockingly, if you use your eyes you can see which have fish in them. It’s not random chance!

You will, however, have to check North and South of Trader’s Wharf.

You can complete A Drift of Supplies and Food on the Shores together to save some running around.

Rewards

  • Reputation +500
  • League of the Axe Token × 4 (worth 4,000Reputation or keep for bartering)


Sharpening Axes Daily Repeatable Quest

Quest-Giver: Mal Knappweed

Sharpen Dull Axes × 6
You then just need to head back to Trader’s Wharf and locate 6 Dull Axes and sharpen them.
Rewards

  • Reputation +500
  • League of the Axe Token × 4 (worth 4,000Reputation or keep for bartering)


Traps in the Wild Daily Repeatable Quest

Quest-Giver: Grun Curldock

Trapping creatures (and hunting sustainably) is a key part of the League’s way of life. Traps sat idling around the Wharf are not fulfilling their purpose, so Grun wants you to set them in places through the Wildwood.

To see where the traps can go, especially during the daytime, put floaty names on (default key: N). What you’re looking for are points marked as a Good Trap Location.


Reputation Rewards

I don’t want to duplicate what I have on another post, so you can see the list of League of the Axe rewards on my Wildwood Guide.


TL;DR Help the League of the Axe make the Wildwood Home!

The story that develops for the League of the Axe is really intriguing and it’s taken all my willpower not to say anything about it! Gaining the maximum reputation with the League (which is Ally standing, remember!) is not difficult and there are tons of rewards to be had on top of the stories. I really encourage you to get into LOTRO’s Wildwood of Bree-land for yourself and get stuck in!
