    1.0 INTRODUCTION AND TERMINOLOGY:
    So, you want to be a crafter. Well, may we welcome you as you start your journey. As a crafter, you will be able to make many useful items, and a few useless one. Though crafting is not required for advancing your character, it can be beneficial in several ways. You can get some beneficial equipments. Plus you will always be able to make friends, as you have items that they will want. Crafting in a kinship can be a great help to your kinship, plus you have access to more recipes. Before you get started you need to decide what type of crafter you want to be. This guild will help you get started.
    Watch the Crafting Developer Diary video on Warcry
    Terminology:
    • Professions: A field of specialization, such as Metalsmithing.
    • Vocations: A bundle of 3 professions, such as an Armorer knows Tailoring, Metalsmithing, and Prospecting (gathering raw materials). Each player can only have one vocation.
    • Critical Success: Crafting something of a different level of quality entirely; crafted items have the chance to be of "similar fashion, but of greater lineage." Critical success is something special; something that only happens for truly dedicated crafters, something worth writing home about.
    • Optional ingredients: Special additions to a recipe that alter the odds of a critical success in their favor.
    • Gathering professions: Collect resources used in crafting, such as Prospecting and collecting ore
    • Production professions: Using the resources and creating an item, such Metalsmithing crafts a shield.
    • Tier: The ranking system for all resources and recipes. The tier determines the difficulty and whether you can advance in the skill by crafting the item.
    • Node: A node is a specific place you can gather a resource. A prospector would harvest from an Ore node.
    2.0 VOCATIONS:
    As a Crafter you will chose a Vocation, which includes three different professions. Most Vocations have a gathering profession, a related production profession, and an unrelated profession. The Vocation system is designed to encourage community interdependence. There is no "best" vocation for any class. Choose the one that interests you the most. It is more important that you enjoy the professions you get with your vocation. Here are the current vocations:
    • Armsman: Prospecting, Weaponsmith, Woodworker
    • Armorer: Prospecting, Metalsmithing, Tailor
    • Explorer: Forester, Prospector, Tailor
    • Historian: Farmer, Scholar, Weaponsmith
    • Tinker: Prospector, Jeweller, Cook
    • Woodsman: Farmer, Forestor, Woodworker
    • Yeoman: Farmer, Cook, Tailor
    For more descriptions on vocations see the LOTRO article: Game Systems: Introduction to Crafting

    3.0 PROFESSIONS:
    Gathering Professions:
    • Prospector: One who gathers ore and stone.
    • Forester: One who gathers resources from the forest, such as collecting wood.
    • Farmer: Collecting items from farms.
    Producing Professions:
    • Cook: A long march can be made all the easier with the promise of a good meal at the end. While it may seem a mundane talent, a good cook is every adventurer's best friend.
    • Jeweller: Simple adornments and objects of beauty are the heart of the jeweller's trade. However, exceptional adornments can go far to increasing the stature and confidence of an adventurer, and a skilled jeweller can produce true works of art.
    • Metalsmith: Metal armors and sturdy shields are the metalsmith's domain. Though their initial products may be of simple make, eventually their skills will allow them to work finer materials and greater designs.
    • Scholar: Perhaps the most mysterious of the professions, the Scholar collects fragments of lost lore, and attempts to interpret their secrets. In doing so, he can produce scrolls that other craftsmen can read to improve their chances of producing a superior product. They can create scrolls that can buff your fellowship. They can also make potions that allow you to heal while in combat.
    • Tailor: A skilled tailor can make simple clothing from common cloth, but with time and practice can create garments of great beauty that provide significant protection to their wearer. The Tailor can also work with tanned hides to produce leather armor – light, tough and suitable for travel.
    • Weaponsmith: As expected, the Weaponsmith is the primary source of melee weapons. Swords, daggers, and axes of all varieties are the Weaponsmith's purview, ranging from bronze training gear to weapons of ancient design and great renown.
    • Woodworker: As any archer will tell you, it takes more than a stick and a string to make a worthy weapon. The woodworker is an expert bowyer, but expands his trade to include staves, spears, and other hafted weapons. A master Woodworker can produce weapons that even an Elven hero would be proud to wield on the battlefield.
    For more descriptions on professions see the LOTRO article: Game Systems: Introduction to Crafting

    Draznar's Crafting Guide and Links (continued)

    4.0 GETTING STARTED:

    Gaining a Vocation: You will need talk to the "Master of Apprentices" or "Mistress of Apprentices" who are located in most crafting areas. You will get a quest option once exiting the newbie area (and entering Little Delving or other starter areas) that will direct you to visit a person near the crafting area who tells you some information about crafting. Below are the locations:
    The Shire
    • Michel Delving: Blossom Proudfoot, Mistress of Apprentices, in the crafting area to the south and west of the Michel Delving post office / bank location (up the hill to the slight north east of the market) (34.6S, 75.5W)

    Bree-land
    • Combe: Jill Brushwood, Mistress of Apprentices, follow the path to the Eastern edge of Town to the Crafting Hall (28.9S, 48.7W)
    • Bree-town Crafting Hall: Old Roger Sorrel, Master of Apprentices, in Bree in the Crafting Hall (30.3S, 51.1W)

    Ered Luin
    • Gondamon: Alfwin, Master of Apprentices (need ;loc)
    • Celondim: Golphedinir, Master of Apprentices, up the cliff from the starting location (need ;loc)
    • Thorin’s Hall: Nási, Master of Apprentices, can be found East of the Main Hall (13.7S, 103.2W)


    Crafting Window: Opened by the "t" key. You will have a tab for each of your professions under your chosen vocation.

    Crafting Item: On the crafting window you can click on the item to be crafted to get the description window for that item.

    Crafting Tools: Each profession requires its own tools. Once you choose a vocation, you receive a set of cheap tools (decreased effectiveness). As soon as you can, you should upgrade and purchase your the bronze tools from the "Provisioner" for ??? (Need New price). Tools have different toughness rating, just like standard equipment.
    Suggestion: Place your tools on the Shift or Control Hot key bars to make it easier to change tools.

    Crafting Locations: The Craft Yard has in it a workbench, a forge, a stove, and a study. These are the locations you must be at to craft. Each profession has a specific location to craft. See next section for more info.

    Harvesting Resources: You will need your respective tool (ie. a prospector needs his pick). Open your skills menu (‘K’) and drag the tracking skill to one of your action bars. You can only have one tracking skill up at a time. Make sure you have this enabled at all times to help you find the nearby veins (Nodes for show up as a little pile of rocks on your mini-map). As you travel the world, you will find nodes. The radar will show a blue arrow when you get within a certain range of a resource node - this arrow will turn into a pile of rocks once the node is in range to be on the radar. A prospector will find nodes of ore sticking out of the ground. At first you will only be able to harvest from lower level nodes. As you progress you will be able to harvest higher level nodes. If you have issues finding nodes, you might want to enable item names. If you do not have the gathering profession needed, you can also purchase your resources at the Auction House.

    Work Order System: NPC will complete Work Orders (WO) for a fee. You can purchase several different types of WOs. When you turn in the WO, you will be told how long it will take to complete. Once you return after the time has been completed, you will be issued a key to a chest. Inside the chest will be your order.
    • Wood location is Combe Lumber camp
    • Ore location is Silverdeep mine in Vale of Thrain
    • Scholar location is Scholar Enclave in Duillond


    Purchased Resources: Many ingredients for recipes are purchased from the provisioner in town. If yu can not find them on the Provisioner, make sure to check the Grocers and Tavern Keeps, they now sell some of the items. You can Shift click on items to buy stacks of 50.

    Quick Harvest Process: (Great for hard to reach nodes)
    • Click delete key to target node
    • Type /follow to go right up to it
    • Click U to use your tool


    UI Settings for harvesting
    • Item Names - Item names will show the item name over the item in the world (helpful when resource nodes are in the ground and such).
    • Directional Selection Indicator - Directional Selection Indicator is at the bottom of the UI Settings. What it does is puts a few dots in the direction of the target(in 3d space, so the dots point directly at the object). The color of the dots changes depending on how far you are from the object. It's an alternative to /follow.

    Recipes: Each profession tab has recipes for Apprentice level to start with. You can buy or find other recipes. (The Gathering Professions gain their recipes automatically.) Clicking on the plus sign (+) will expand the list of available recipes. Clicking on a recipe shows you what resources are need to make that item. A recipe will show in green with the quantity you can produce if you have all the needed resources. Click on the "Make" button to produce one. Recipes that are purple are single use, so be careful.
    • Auto-granted: You gain these recipes automatically when you gain access to a tier.
    • Store-bought: Scrolls that you can be purchased from the Novice or Expert Trainer/Vendor of your profession
    • Dropped: These recipes scrolls are random loot drops from the mobs in Middle Earth.
    • One-shot: These are dropped recipes scrolls that can only be used once. Once you have crafted the item, you will forget the recipe. You may relearn the recipe through another scroll. All One shot recipes require special drops from named monsters. See Fizen's Lord of the Rings Online rare crafting component list.

    Advancement: Profession tiers are gained through crafting. Each item you create grants a certain number of skill points. The amount gained for each item is listed on the crafting screen ("F"). To move to the next tier of your profession you need to gain all the skill points for your current Level (i.e., An Apprentice needs to gain 200 skill points, before he can start gaining Journeyman skill points).

    Mastering a Tiers: Once you have have completed a tier you can work on "Mastering" that tier. To master a given tier you have to master the previous. You do not need to gain mastery in any tier to become a Master, but you need to gain Mastery in all tiers to Gain Mastery of the Master tier.

    Profession Levels:
    • Level (Skill needed/Mastery Skill)
    • Apprentice (200/400)
    • Journeyman (280/560)
    • Expert (360/720)
    • Artisan (440/880)
    • Master (520/1040)

    Mastery Option: Mastery Option allows you to increase the chance of a Critical success when crafting an item. It is another tab at the bottom of the crafting screen ("F"). You must have gained Mastery in a Tier to be able to use the Mastery option. Once you have collected all the normal ingredients, you can add the item(s) listed on the Mastery Option tab and click on the check box before crafting (Clicking MAKE).

    Craftsman's Mark: Your name will be on every item you create.

    Naming Items: Upon successful Critical completion of an Artisan recipe a dialog window opens up which allows you to name the item you have made.

    Item Links in Chat: If you have an item in your inventory you can create a link in your chat. This can be done by dragging it from your inventory or Holding down shift and clicking on the item.

    Removing crafting spam: All those lovely items crafted or harvested can be filtered out by removing STANDARD and REGIONAL filters from the GENERAL tab. I recommend adding them to the COMBAT tab or a new tab.

    Applying Dye: Open your Character panel (paper-doll, as some call it). Now open your inventory. Right-click on the dye pot. Move your cursor over the item you wish to dye in your Character panel and left-click. You should see the "dying" progress bar and be done in a second or two.

    Sell-Lock from Inventory: You can lock items in your inventory through mapping a key to Sell-Lock (Options > Keymapping). Then you can Alt-click (select) the item and press the key you mapped to Sell Lock. This works just like click on the lock in the sell window of vendors.

There are two entrances to the troll area. The second from the right is the shorter way to the heartwood. The npc is not a friendly - it a woodtroll related to a an epic quest and it is non - aggro. You must have a group to reach the heartwood. So you want to fight them and work you way back about around 10 trolls and you will see a friendly npc. I believe it's an ent or a tree or maybe even a wood troll that i'm not sure. Well I found the black heartwood right near him. He's actually near the other entrance just south of the one I'm talking about where you fight your way in. If you fought through the other entrance you probably only fight like 5 trolls.

    Draznar's Crafting Guide and Links (continued)

    8.0 ECONOMICS:

    8.1 Currency: The basic unit of currency is the silver coin. Copper and gold are used as well, but silver is the baseline.
    100 copper = 1 silver
    1000 silver = 1 gold
    8.2 Auction House: You can access the global Action House through the Solicitor/Notary (Auctioneer). Solicitors or Motaries can be found in the following locations:
    • Bree inside Town hall (need ;loc)
    • Michel Delving behind the hunter trainer in the merchants area (just to the south and west of the milestone, bank & post office) 34.2S, 74.8W
    • Thorin’s Hall (need ;loc)
    • Rivendell (need ;loc)
    8.3 Mail System: Mailboxes are in most of the cities. They show up on your mini map and big map as an envelope.

    8.4 Banking/Storage: There will be a system that allows additional storage beyond what you carry on your back - the exact form it will take is still being worked on. As a couple people have mentioned, crafters (and packrats, and the obsessive-compulsive) do appreciate having the extra space.

    9.0 FAQ:
    Please help add your questions
    Does a character's level limit how far they can advance their crafting skills? While there are no level restrictions. Some of the required resources are in high level areas and many of the quest are not doable, by a solo low level character. If you are in a kinship, consider getting some help with the higher level quests.
    Can I un-train a craft so that I can learn a new one? You can change your vocation at any time, which will change your professions. You will retain skills in any profession that is in the new and old vocation. But you will lose all other skills and recipes on professions that are not in both vocations.
    Do skills atrophy over time through non-use? No. though they will not increase with out use.
    How much demand is there for crafted items? A crafter will always find that some of their items are in demand. Profiting from this is something you will have to learn for yourself.
    Are there rare ingredients that need to be collected for some recipes? Single use recipes require rare dropped items to be used when crafted. See Rare Crafting Component List by Fizen Dirtnap for a complete list of the recipes and drops.
    How can I tell if a loot item can be used in a recipe? Look at the description and it will mention crafting. Please give to a crafter, or sell it on the Action House.

    Looking for corrections and suggestions on the rewrite....
    Just a few suggestions:

    7.1 - Rollo's last name is Boffin, I think. Also, he no longer just asks for 1 superior mushroom pie. Instead, he sends you to a series of quests for his friends in the shire who all have different cooking requests. Once you complete all of them (including the infamous Esmerelda Burrows) then you get Superior Oven access.

    9.0 - change to remove scholar items. Right now, everything listed is either a drop that helps enhance critical success, or a drop required for a special one-time use recipe. The exceptions to this rule are the scholar items, of which you've got about half a dozen who don't come from named units, but rather from scholar nodes, chests, mobs, etc.

    10.0 - all links need to be updated to reflect new forum addresses.

    I hope that's helpful. Thanks again for your exceptional start to this guide.

    Asht tooth is from a warg in Minas Eriol, the ruins that you go down into, instead of going up the path into the goblin area, pretty sure.

    I am removing that list soon, since a friend has created a much better one...

    Work Order System: NPC (NEED names & locations) will complete Work Orders (WO) for a fee. You can purchase several different types of WOs. When you turn in the WO, you will be told how long it will take to complete. Once you return after the time has been completed, you will be issued a key to a chest. Inside the chest will be your order.


    Wood location is Combe Lumber camp
    Ore location is Silverdeep mine in Vale of Thrain
    Scholar location is Scholar Enclave in Duillond

    7.7 Woodworker Quests

    Expert: ??? Part 2
    • Receive from any Novice Woodworker.
    • Talk to Sarabeth Lowbanks in the gazebo in center of Staddle (Need ;loc).
    • Need details on making staff, requires killing a dourhand signature in lone lands. Level 20 signature Dourhand wanders the camped ruins below Menegrost (sic?) south of road in lone lands.
    The third woodworker quest is similar to the tailoring quest - requiring you to go to Thornley's worksite and Trestlebridge; collect driftwood from the river below and repair the Trestlebridge span.



    Artisan:


    The black heartwood is found on the ground in the giant valley just south of Rivendell. This area is full of elite drakes, worms, and trolls levels 38-44. When you enter the giant valley just stay on the right and you will come to a friendly giant (Arifael (sic?) just go south past him and you will see some woodtrolls.


    There are two entrances to the troll area. The second from the right is the shorter way to the heartwood. The npc is not a friendly - it a woodtroll related to a an epic quest and it is non - aggro. You must have a group to reach the heartwood.



    So you want to fight them and work you way back about around 10 Elite trolls (mix of woodtrolls and Curologs) and you will see a friendly npc. I believe it's an ent or a tree or maybe even a wood troll that i'm not sure. Well I found the black heartwood right near him. He's actually near the other entrance just south of the one I'm talking about where you fight your way in. If you fought through the other entrance you probably only fight like 5 trolls.

    Weaponsmith Master: Involves going to Ered Luin and talking to a dwarven weaponsmith master, at which point you will have to build a "special" hammer

    The Hammer is called the fist of the dwarves

    After talking to the expert weaponsmith you are sent to a dwarf (Hammerfist?) at the North Barricade in Raith Teraig near Gondamon.

    After getting instructions you must find Deep Ore ingots (the critical component). These are located below Pinnaith Fenaig (sic memory not too sharp on spelling ) in the Misty Mountains. Specifically the ore is a ground item on the shore of the west Caldwell Pool directly below the goblin camps that line the road to Pinnaith. The area is populated by level 40-43 wargs and goblins. (This area is just below the pass through the Misty Mountains which is not open yet.)

    After crafting the item return to the dwarf at the barricade to have it inspected.

    Great Guide - much appreciated.

    Some of the links don't seem to point to the posts with the information, but directly to the home page of the forums. Is anyone else having this issue?

    Thanks again!

    Re: Draznar's Crafting Links, Guide, and FAQ

    Correction:

    Scholar: Perhaps the most mysterious of the professions, the Scholar collects fragments of lost lore, and attempts to interpret their secrets. In doing so, he can produce scrolls that other craftsmen can read to improve their chances of producing a superior product. Other practical applications include lore by which specific enemies (orcs, trolls, the dead) might be best combated, or cures for various maladies. They can also make potions that allow you to heal while in combat.
    They removed scrolls that increase damage to specific enemies, such as Orcs, Trolls, etc, in Beta 2. The scrolls now increase Offense or Defense to all types of mobs.

    We do not craft Scrolls or potions that cure diseases, etc. We only craft potions for Moral and Power.

    Re: Draznar's Crafting Links, Guide, and FAQ

    This looks to be a good resource and reference with very useful information. I appreciate the time and effort that went into it. But I feel it could do better in many areas. Here are a couple that I strongly feel need to be improved upon right away:

    The title indicates an FAQ is included. Yet there is no questions and answers section contained within the document. I can think of several items that would be useful here. How many vocations can I learn? What vocations are most useful, and to whom? Is crafting particularly useful besides providing an alternative way of spending my time in game? How much time does it take to advance through the various ranks? Does a character's level limit how far they can advance their crafting skills? Can I untrain a craft so that I can learn a new one? Do skills atrophy over time through non-use? Will training a crafting vocation reduce how much training I can put into combat abilities? How much demand is there for crafted items? Is there any system in place that drives players to want to continue purchasing more crafted goods? How likely is it to find a crafted good your looking for in the auction house? What is the best way to seek out a skilled crafter to create a special item you desire? Are there timers on reusing certain recipes? Are there rare ingredients that need to be collected for some recipes? How can I tell if a loot item can be used in a recipe? How much pack space do various vocations tie up? I could go on and on, but I think you get the idea.

    I also feel that the introduction needs to do a better job of introducing new players to the crafting system. They specifically will need to have a good enough grasp of crafting to determine if it's something they'll want to do, and have a good enough overview to help them make a determination of what crafts would be suitable for their character to begin narrowing down their selection.

    I hope this feedback helps
