Where life has no value, death, sometimes, has its price. That is why the bounty quests appeared.
The Eglain are a bunch of surly misanthropic hermits who have
turned their backs on human and elf society in favor
of simpler lives, scavenging among the many Rhudaurian ruins
of the Lone-lands for valubale trinkets and the like.
Because of their reclusive, anti-social nature, earning
standing with the Eglain can take some work. There are no rep items to
be scavenged from corpses (or purchased in bulk from the auction house)
and traded for rep. Nosir, the Eglain are more exacting than that. They
Fortunately, most quests started in the Lone-lands have Eglain
reputation rewards. The Garth Agarwen instances can earn the hardy
adventurer 3600 reputation a day for completing the daily
challenges, and more for completing the optional quests.
There are a number of repeatable bounty quests for Eglain
standing, available from NPCs at the Forsaken Inn and in Ost
Haer in Harloeg. Tasks from the task billboards at the Forsaken Inn and
Ost Guruth also have reputation rewards, but these are level-limited.
Level-capped characters who raced through the Lone-lands without
bothering with Eglain rep are ineligible for the tasks.
Aside from questing and running Garth Agarwen over and over,
reputation can be earned by fulfilling consignments. Leoflac, the
Factions Rewards vendor NPC in Ost Guruth, sells these consignment
requests for 21s 60c, and they are available to every crafting
profession. The item purchased from Leoflac grants a quest when used,
requiring the deliver of a set amount of crafted goods. For example,
Tailors can purchase the request for Sturdy Leather Bindings,
Weaponsmiths can purchase a request for Lure Traps, etc. These are
redeemed for 300 reputation points each.
This is really not an ideal way to earn reputation, however,
unless you are also working on earning crafting XP. Consider: 6 leather
bindings = 12 Sturdy Leather = 24 Sturdy Hides. That's 24 wargs
(assuming every one of them drops a hide, which isn't always the case)
per turn-in, for a paltry 300 reputation. In order to earn substantial
amounts of reputation through consignment quests, you're looking at
literally thousands of mobs and absurd amounts of money (since the
quests must be purchased each time). You need almost 100 turn-ins to
get from Friend to Ally, for example - 2,400 hides, 2 gold, 160 copper.
Go ahead and convert all those Sturdy Hides you have been hoarding into
Sturdy Leather Bindings for rep, but once you've mastered Expert tier
and still want the rep, just do the repeatables and Garth Agarwen
Earning standing with the Eglain allows for the purchase and
use of the following items, available from Leoflac in Ost Guruth:
Warrior's Symbol (class-specific pocket items)
Sage's Golden Circle
Soldier's Golden Circle (bracelets, set piece)
Sage's Golden Band
Soldier's Golden Band (rings, set piece)
