Rewards for Completing the LOTRO Shire Deeds

I have listed each invidual deed reward below – and have totalled together those rewards where they are grouped. I.e. Farms & Sights of the Shire have rewards for both added together.

However when you complete Deeds of the Shire you gain the following additional rewards:

  • Marks: 100
  • Mathom Society Reputation: 1,200
  • Other Rewards: 1 × Bronze-Bound Lootbox, 1 × Solid Steel Key

I have not put in LOTRO Points (LP) earned for reputation changes with the Mathom Society, as the Points earned will totally depend on what reputation you start at when you begin deeding in The Shire.

No Place for Spoilt Pies – 5 LOTRO Points

LOTRO No Place for Spoilt Pies DeedPoor Holly Hornblower has got herself into a right pickle. Or she would if she made pickle, but she doesn’t, she makes pies. But something has gone horribly wrong with her latest batch. It’s a scramble to save her business’ reputation – by retrieving all her Spoilt Pies from her customers.

But it’s not that simple of course! You cannot simply toss the bad pies into the Brandywine, so they have to be safely returned to Holly Hornblower intact. And you must ensure that Hungry Hobbits don’t get a sniff either – clearly some Hobbits can’t tell a bad pie by its smell!

No Place for Spoilt Pies Deed Rewards

  • LOTRO Points: 5
  • Mathom Society Reputation: 700
  • Virtues Increased: Patience
  • Title: Pie-Runner (You’ll need to speak to Holly Hornblower again to get this title. The Deed does not automatically grant it to you)
  • Other Rewards: 30 Marks, Hornblower’s Pie Recipe (Cook Crafting Recipe)
