About 3 years ago I created a guide to help with the location of mobs when completing Slayer deeds. Since then I left the game and the guide received a few additions by several others who were kind enough to list more locations.
A short time ago I started playing again and decided to add the deeds that were added to the game since I last worked on the guide. I also decided to redo the guide visually to make it look more updated and to add a bit more information for each deed.
When looking at the guide you will see the name of the deed, the total number of mobs needed to completed both normal and advanced versions of the deed, the traits and titles given out by the deed, and the total amount of TP you can earn by completing both versions of the deed.
Currently some of the deed give x2 of a particular trait. Since this is being changed in a few weeks with the release of ROI I chose to go ahead and list one trait per deed.
Over the next few weeks I will be working on re-linking all the deed, traits, and titles. I will also be making a few tweeks to the visual look of each table to make the guide as easy to read as possible.
Please take some time and let me know what you think of the updated version of the guide and keep in mind that all comments and criticism is appreciated.
I have updated the guide with Dunland Slayer Deeds. The information was taken from Beta info but I believe most of it is all up to date. As I get through the zone I will verify and correct the info if needed. Also the deeds themselves are not linked. The Lorebook has not been updated with RoI info yet and the links will be put in once it is.

I'm doing the deeds right now. Bonevales is excellent for wights (Slayer of the Dead), and just west of Galtrev is a location called "Rook's Hut" (79.6S, 19.0W) that has loads of crebain. Nice thing about the beast slayer deed is that crebain, wargs (another deed), etc., also count towards the beast slayer deed. So do crebain and wargs first (plus whatever animals you have killed while questing) and it should be easy to get the beast slayer deed.
I'm still working on half-orc, orc, uruk and wargs. If anyone has a good spot for them, I'd love to know. I have a few hunches that I'm going to look into, but still...
I do have one piece of information that might be helpful. For those looking to work on their Fidelity trait and are doing the Mirkwood Dead-Slayer deed, there's really not much information in the internet I could find about good farming locations. Lotro-wiki says to either go to SE Taur Morvith or, *gasp* kill respawning wights in SG! Taur Morvith isn't very good, since the shades are pretty spread out and there are plenty of non-dead mobs there to slow down your slaughtering. Going into SG to farm is a great way to get a huge repair bill and no deed progress.
At first, I was farming shades outside the Haunted Inn, but there really aren't that many of them, they respawn pretty slowly and finally, there are often players here facing the same issue trying to do the quests. The best place I found is Agistath, the cave north of the Haunted Inn that you go in for the Cucheron's Bow epic epilogue quest. There are some shades, plus the gaunt-men (that unfortunately don't count themselves). However, the gaunt-men have a pet zombie that does count and, if you wait a couple of seconds, they summon a second wight that also counts, so each gaunt-man counts as two. Got the deed done pretty quick in there.
I haven't done the Mirkwood slayer deeds yet; thanks for the bit about the gaunt-men, Gylve.
I will mention this. Since my above post, I've completed my orc-slayer deed. Strangely, though goblins seem to be marked as "Orc-kind", they do not in fact count towards the orc deed. The best place I found, however, was in the Pit of Iron, just before entering Nan Curunir. It has a fairly large amount of orcs that are fairly close together. It also has some scattering of goblins and worms (and possibly other foes), but a nice concentrated location.
I'll be working on half-orc, uruks and wargs next; I'll be sure to mention some good places if I find them. I know that obviously Nan Curunir has a lot of that sort of mob, but I prefer more concentrated areas to slay in. And there are a few little "villages" of some form of orc (not sure whether orc, half-orc or uruk yet) in Gap of Rohan. I can't remember which race specifically. I'll post here when I figure it out.
I am glad to see people making guides like these. I honestly hope someone steps forward and gets the chance to work on an updated guide. I know I know this thread is old but it still has a bunch of useful information for getting virtues from the base game that you really can't find elsewhere for the most part.
