LOTRO Reputation Mounts List
24 Horses and Goats You Can Earn In-Game

LOTRO Reputation Mounts List - from the Shire to Pelagir, here are your reputation Horses and Goats!

One of the things that surprised me when I first started playing The Lord of the Rings Online was the sheer volume of mounts you can acquire by playing the game. The primary way outside of Festivals is through acquiring Reputation Mounts from the various factions across Middle-Earth. So, as well as the Mithril Coins Mounts, I thought I’d collect together as many reputation horses and goats as possible. It turned out that, apart from one, I had acquired all of them up to Helm’s Deep in LOTRO!

How to Acquire Reputation Mounts

There are two requirements for being able to buy a reputation horse from a faction:

  1. Kindred Standing: people won’t sell their prized animals to just anyone. You must earn their trust first.
  2. The Right Currency: While many of the early reputation steeds require a large chunk of Coin (gold, silver and copper) that’s not true of many places. Often you’ll need to have some of the local currency. These are usually earnable through quests but may also be awarded for completing deeds in the region.

Reputation Mounts List

Most reputation mounts have the word “Prized” at the start. But that would make for awfully repetative reading! So, I’ve left that word off the steed name. Here are 24 Reputation Mounts you can earn in-game:

Special Reputation Mounts

Not all horses related to your standing with LOTRO factions are simply a case of “getting Kindred” with one faction. So far I have encountered two “special reputation mounts”. These are:

Elf-Ambassador’s Horse

You will be automatically granted the Elf Ambassador’s Horse/Pony, once you reach Kindred standing with:

  • Elves of Rivendell (the Trollshaws)
  • The Galladhrim (Lothlórien)
  • The Malledhrim (Mirkwood)

When you have completed these three factions, you will also complete the Ambassador to the Elves Deed. This grants:

  • LOTRO Points: 20
  • Title: Ambassador to the Elves
  • Mount Item: Steed of the Elf-Lords

Steed of Eriador

The Steed of Eriador is granted once you reach Kindred with all 11 Eriador factions. This includes the Grey Company.

Completing these factions completes the World Renowned Deed . This also grants:

  • LOTRO Points: 50
  • Title: World Renowned

A Note to F2P/Premium Players

If you are Free-to-Play or Premium, your ability to buy the reputation steeds that require coin will be restricted. I believe even Premium players have a 5 Gold cap. If you are Premium, you can obtain:

But it will leave you with no coin!

How to Remove the LOTRO Gold Cap

To lift the Gold cap, you will need to acquire the Currency Cap item from the LOTRO Store. While this costs 395LP, all it takes is for you to complete some deeds:

And you’ll have points left over!

Also, as faction-specific deeds also grant repuation, you can earn additional LOTRO Points when you’re questing and deeding in those regions.

TL;DR Collect All the Reputation Mounts!

For me, the main motivation behind hitting Kindred with factions is to acquire the Reputation Mounts. This includes even my characters that have War-Steeds. You cannot acquire these horses and goats any other way, so they are a reward for just playing LOTRO. So go forth, make friends and fill those stables with more horses – and goats!
