Short version:
Reach level 84 and do the quests To Hytbold (in your mailbox) and Welcome to Hytbold.
Do the quest Aiding the Eastemnet and five of its related quests every day to earn [Tokens of Hytbold] and raise your reputation standing.
Start rebuilding Hytbold and barter for your class's armour sets with the [Tokens of Hytbold] you earned (see the summaries below).
(Optional) Do the crafting resource instances.
(Optional) Complete deeds and barter for housing decorations.
(Optional) Finish rebuilding Hytbold (a minimum of 44 days), experience the end of the Eastemnet's story, and barter for class armour sets for your alts.
(Optional) If you're still doing dailies at this point, you can exchange your extra [Tokens of Hytbold] for [Silver Tokens of the Riddermark] on a 1 : 1 basis at any Eastemnet Miscellany Quartermaster.

In order to rebuild Hytbold, you'll need to earn many [Tokens of Hytbold] by completing daily quests elsewhere in Eastern Rohan. These tokens are bound to your character, so when you earn them, spend them wisely.

Once a day, you can get the quest Aiding the Eastemnet from Rinwald outside the Mead Hall in Hytbold. This allows you to complete five daily quests in Eastern Rohan, each of which rewards [5 Tokens of Hytbold], for a total of [25 Tokens of Hytbold] each day.

Be sure to finish your five chosen daily quests before 3:00 AM /servertime (U.S. Eastern Time), or you won't be able to pick the quest up again the following day when you finish it.

You can choose your five daily quests from sixteen quests randomly available each day. There are four quests each in the main settlements of the four areas: Harwick, Cliving, Eaworth, and Snowbourn. Completing a daily quest will also reward you with 1200 reputation for that area's faction.

Beginning with Update 10, players can reset the cooldown on the quest Aiding the Eastemnet at a cost of [5 Mithril Coins] which can be purchased from the LOTRO Store. However, the cooldowns on the sixteen quests randomly available each day cannot be reset. By repeatedly resetting the cooldown on Aiding the Eastemnet, it is possible for a player to complete as many as 16 quests each day, earning [80 Tokens of Hytbold] total (although for practical purposes, most players will only want to complete 15 quests).

If you finished every quest in Eastern Rohan while leveling up, you should have already reached the following reputation standings:
Men of the Wold: Friend at 18,100 / 25,000 toward Ally.
Men of the Norcrofts: Friend at 18,700 / 25,000 toward Ally.
Note: The quest [80] Speaking the Truth rewards no reputation, while its alternative [80] Inhild's Wish rewards 900 reputation. It may also be possible to get a little more reputation if you complete the quest [80] Leader of the Nink-hai or its alternative [80] The Prisoner Returns. I'm not sure if they both reward the same reputation.
Men of the Entwash Vale: Friend at 18,800 / 25,000 toward Ally.
Men of the Sutcrofts: Friend at 19,700 / 25,000 toward Ally.
This means to reach Kindred standing with every faction, you'll need a total of 144,700 reputation. It will take a minimum of 25 days to do this, assuming you do five quests for Aiding the Eastemnet each day and don't "waste" any reputation on factions that are already at Kindred standing.

If you complete all of an area's daily quests at least once, you'll finish a deed that rewards an extra [25 Tokens of Hytbold]. Completing all four areas' deeds will earn you an additional [25 Tokens of Hytbold]. So even if you find a particular quest challenging, try to complete it at least once for these 125 bonus tokens.

Although these are all solo quests, you can do them all while in a fellowship. There are three different types of daily quests:

Mounted combat instances:
These are walled-off sections of Eastern Rohan where you will only face level 85 mounted opponents. The same quest is available in each area every day. You can enter them by talking to the quest bestower, and leave via a special return horse (shown on the map) or by right-clicking your portrait and choosing Leave Instance. Enemies respawn very quickly in the mounted combat instances, so be careful where you're riding.

Landscape quests:
These are quests you actually perform in or near the settlement. One landscape quest is randomly available in each settlement daily. The quests in Harwick are playful, those in Cliving involve your war-steed, in Eaworth you'll be running and jumping, and in Snowbourn all the landscape quests involve fishing. If you don't yet have the fishing hobby, you can train it directly from the quest bestower in Snowbourn.

Public instance quests:
Each area has one random public instance with two quests daily. One of the quests will involve defeating 10 enemies, and the other has you perform some related duties in the instance. If you intend to do both, be sure to get both quests from the bestower before you start. You must enter the instance directly from the quest bestower, and leave through an exit or by right-clicking your portrait. The opponents in these public instances are sometimes more challenging than they appear, so feel free to take a friend. You can use your war-steed in a few of these instances too, so experiment with what works best. In the defence and siege quests, if an NPC guard hits an opponent, you will not get quest credit for it, despite the enemies being indicated for open-tapping.

You can stay in the mounted combat and public quest instances as long as you don't leave and complete their quests. Some of them are especially good for completing slayer deeds.

Here's an overview of all 49 daily quests, in case you'd like to check them off:
