LOTRO Crafting Guide:
Everything You Need to Succeed In Crafting

My LOTRO Crafting Guide should help you to be successful at crafting. Crafting can be a very fun aspect of The Lord of the Rings Online... but it can also be frustrating and irritating if you don't know the right strategies! Hopefully I can make you item making life a little more enjoyable ;)

This guide will give you just about everything you need become a great crafter, including:

     • Picking a Profession
     • Picking a Guild
     • Ranking up Proficiencies
     • Gathering Materials and Resources
     • Crafting Quests
     • The Auction House

The hardest, or maybe most annoying, part of crafting is all of the resources needed to rank up your proficiency tier. It can take a loooooong time to gather all of the required ore, hides, wood, or scholar stuff. Knowing the best locations for doing this is critical! Lucky for you I'll share that information with you!

Picking a Profession

The first thing you'll need to do when you get started crafting is to pick a profession. Here are all of the professions and what they can do.

Picking a Guild

Picking a guild doesn't come until tier 3 (expert proficiency), but it's important to know which you'll want early. It will help you avoid wasting a lot of time working the wrong craft profession!

I hope you found my LOTRO Crafting Guide helpful. I plan on continuing to add to it, so check back often! And as always, let me know if you ever want information on any other crafting topics or have other requests!
