Salutations. Hope everyone is doing well and skirmishing responsibly. I have noticed a few areas like Bree, Michel Delving, Thorin’s Gate, and Ost Guruth that have reputation maps that you can barter for. Are there any others to obtain this way? Some of my hunterless alts could really use more travel skills. Enjoy the show and thanks a bunch ahead of time.

Now have the Idealism virtue to 26, though only 19 levels count in the game.


Do you know if there is a limit on virtues that you can earn, or does it go on for ever?
