Mathom House is a museum housing trinkets and heirlooms that, according
to JRR Tolkein, "Hobbits have no immediate use for but (are) unwilling
to throw away." Kinda like all the stuff in my vault.
The Mathom Society, located in Michel Delving at the Mathom
House, is one of the very easiest factions to gain reputation with.
Mathoms and Well-kept Mathoms often drop from mobs that drop other rep
items for other areas (in Evendim, Angmar and other high-level places
in Eriador), and can usually be purchased cheaply on the
auction house. Gift mathoms are rewarded for completing quests in the
Shire, and are bound on acquire. Greylond Bottomley accepts Mathoms and
Gift Mathoms, and Eustoma Muddybanks accepts Well-kept Mathoms.
- Gift Mathom - turn in 1 for 700 reputation
- Mathom - turn in 10 for 300 reputation
- Well-kept Mathom - turn in 1 for 700 reputation
Cooks can craft reputation items in the form of
food. These are also bartered at the Mathom House with
Baldwin Foxtail, who also sells the recipes.
- Honey-roasted Chicken - turn in 1 for 700 reputation
- Seasoned Beef with Cauliflower - turn in 5 for 300
- Strawberry Dessert-wine - turn in 5 for 500 reputation
