Crafting Topics: Professions, Vocations, Resources

Resources are items that can be harvested throughout the world for use in crafting. The four types of trackable resources that can be harvested are Artifacts, Crops, Ore, and Wood. There is a fifth type of resource, Hides, which drop as loot from beasts.

Resources are harvested from different tiers, so that tier-1 resources are available in Starter Areas and higher tiers follows character progression fairly well. See the crafting section of each region for details about available resource tiers, or see summary tables below.

Artifacts

Artifacts are found across the lands of Middle-earth. Scholars have the ability to Track Artifacts and study them using a Scholar's Glass. Each Artifact can produce a small number of texts and trinkets during examination. Some Artifacts may also contain a candle or lamp that will assist the Scholar in studying, leading to a critical success during crafting. Only a scholar may use these materials in order to craft scrolls, books, and other items.

Crops

These items may be cultivated by Farmers, using a Vegetable field crafting area. They are used by Cooks in crafting food. Cultivating a well-tended field of vegetables(a Critical success result) may also produce special by-products that can be used by Cooks to create special or improved food recipes, or by Scholars to create dyes. Note that locations in the following table are where the crops are commonly found; all wild crops may be found, at times, in all areas of Middle Earth. Critical result crops used for dyes may be seen in the Dyes table.

Spices are special, rare crop ingredients that can be used by a cook to improve the flavor of food, producing critical results. They are infrequently produced in fields of other crops from the same tier (e.g. a Tier 1 Sprig of Allspice can be harvested from any of the other Tier 1 fields, such as carrot and mushroom fields). They can also be rewarded as loot from foes; the spice received is determined by the level of the foe that was defeated.

Ore

Ore deposits are found across the lands of Middle-earth. Prospectors have the ability to Track Mines, and process the ore using Prospector's Tools. Normal ore deposits yield 1 to 3 ore, while Rich/Bountiful ore deposits yield 4 to 6 ore and are more likely to also yield crafting materials such as Dyes material, gems, Crafting Rare Components and mastery components. Prospectors have the skill to smelt ore into ingots for other professions. Metalsmiths, Weaponsmiths, and Jewellers can use these ingots to craft items.

Strange Ore sightings

In some places, strange looking ore deposits might be spotted.

These deposits can't be interacted with nor do they appear on radar.

These are for quests, where the NPC sends you out to find N chunks of Y-ore. They can be found in all areas of Middle Earth.

Unknown ore
Unkown Ore 1.png
The deposit appears to look similar to a gold deposit in structure and shape, but with yellow base rock as if sulfur.

Known Locations: North of Gondamon in Ered Luin, Low Lands 19.2 S, 96.7W

A typical quest: Ore for the Forge in Forochel

Wood

Wood can be found across the lands of Middle-earth. Foresters have the ability to Track Wood and harvest it using their Forester's Axe. Normal branches typically yield 1 to 3 branches, while heavy branches can yield up to 6 branches and occasionally kindling materials. Both types of branches can sometimes yield 1+ mastery components used by Tailors and Woodworkers. Foresters have the skill to treat wood for other professions. Other professions, such as Woodworker, can then create items from the treated wood.

To find Journeyman Tiers 2 thru Supreme Tier 6 rare crafting components each Region has a list of rare Named Creatures that drop shards or flakes. For Westfold Tier 7 thru Westemnet Tier 9 Dungeon or Instances Bosses drop chests that contain these rare crafting components instead.

See the list above for links to the rare components which also list the regions.
