Crafting Facilities

From Lotro-Wiki.com

Crafting facilities are objects which people of Middle-earth can utilize for crafting. Each profession uses a unique facility for their trade, for example, a Metalsmith uses a Forge and a Woodworker uses a Workbench. Facilities may be found in Craft Halls of major cities such as Bree and Galtrev, or inside Housing Areas if players have purchased and allowed public use of their Crafting Stations.

Each crafting facility comes in two varieties: "Normal" and "Superior." While Recipes up to Expert Tier (Tier 3) require normal crafting facilities (of course, superior ones can be used), Recipes from Artisan Tier upwards require superior crafting facilities. But with Riders of Rohan, all crafting facilities were promoted to superior crafting facilities.

When approaching a facility, an icon under your portrait shows the type of the facility. Superior quality is shown only to professions that can make use of the superior facility. In that case the facility shows both icons. An Oven shows also the Campfire Icon to a cook.

See: Category: Crafting Facilities for details on many Crafting Locations throughout Middle-earth.

A Campfire is used by a Cook to prepare trail foods and other items. They should NOT be confused with a "Camp Site Fire" used by Hunters for Wayfaring (Return to Camp).

An Oven and Superior Oven are used by a Cook to prepare cooked food and other items. Beginning with Update 10, Ovens can also be used by a Cook to prepare trail foods. Superior ovens are necessary for Artisan level tier and above.
