Fidelity

Deed
Value
Where to Go

Fortitude

Deed
Value
Where to Go
A little extra Might goes a long way, and pairing it with Resistance rating makes it handy for tanks. Loads of non-combat morale regeneration makes for less waiting to recharge between fights. These are mostly slayer deeds, except for the ones in late-game areas. (Top) Bree-land: Neekerbreeker-slayer

Honesty

Deed Value Where to Go

Honour

Deed Value Where to Go
A purely defensive virtue for goin up against caster-type enemies, Honour helps resist attacks and long-term effects, and mitigates some damage caused by tactical attacks, plus adds a bit of Vitality. At first, you earn Honour by slaying bugs and critters, but as you wind your way through Middle-earth, more is expected of Honourable men, and the mobs get bigger and tougher. (Top)

Once you turn in "Dark and Lonely Forest," Andreg unsummons and you can't complete the deed if you haven't finished the other quests already.

Idealism

Deed
Value
Where to go
Lots of Fate means more in-combat power regeneration and more critical hits, plus it has extra resistance rating and a small boost to Will. Idealism comes from a lot of lore-based deeds and a little bit of killing. (Top) Bree: the History of the Dunedain

Justice

Deed
Value
Where to Go
Dispensing frontier justice to the villains of Middle-earth is a real morale-booster, and so is the Virtue. A good chunk of morale, and both in-combat and non-combat morale regeneration are your reward. Justice deeds are mostly of the slayer type. (Top) Bree: Brigand-slayer

Loyalty

Deed
Value
Where to Go
This one is good for any class because of the big boost to Vitality. The extra power and increased armor value help also. Loyalty is largely earned by doing lots of quests and exploring, but there are a few slayer-type deeds as well. (Top) Bree-land: Bree-land Adventurer (Final)

Deed Value Where to Go

Patience

Deed Value Where to Go
This one is easy to overlook, but the boost to ICPR, resistance rating and physical mitigation makes it worth considering for a lot of different classes, particularly when one expects long, drawn-out battles. As one might expect from the name, the way to earn Patience is to grit your teeth and buckle down - do all the deliveries in the Shire, find out-of-the-way Points of Interest and power through loads of quests, no matter how aggravating they may be.

Valour

Deed
Value
Where to Go
There's simply no arguing against the big chunk of morale that this virtue adds. Extra non-combat morale regeneration means less downtime between fights, and there's a sniff of Might thrown in for flavor. Be ready to kill a lot of orcs, goblins, trolls and worms. (Top) Bree-land: Orc-slayer

Wisdom

Deed
Value
Where to Go
A big boost to Will and in-combat power regeneration will help overcome power issues, plus it has a dash of resistance rating. Wisdom comes from expansion of the mind - lore and exploration deeds - and also senseless violence. (Top) Bree: the Old Forest
