Superior Workbench
  • Allows execution of recipes requiring a Superior Workbench.


Coming close enough to a Superior Workbench this effect will be applied to Farmers, Foresters, Jewellers, Tailors and Woodworkers.
  • Note: Since Update 11, no recipe requires a "Superior Workbench," as all workbenches now qualify for all recipes. That is to say, all workbenches are Superior Workbenches.

Crafting Facility

As of Update 11: Treachery of the White Hand, LOTRO adjusted ALL crafting facilities to be used as regular and superior across the world. All non-unique facilities have had the word 'Superior' removed from their names.
A Superior Workbench is required for Foresters, Jewellers, Tailors and Woodworkers who are using recipes from Artisan level and above. It also serves lower level recipes.
To be able to use a Superior Workbench you must complete two quests and be granted Superior Workbench Access.
When you have become proficient, i.e. completed the first tier of the Expert <profession> tier, visit any Novice <profession>.
Notice that nothing hints about this requirement except that no XP is obtained any more, and neither can you begin to use any recipes of the next tier as expected.
See one of Forester, Jeweller, Tailor or Woodworker for quests and NPCs.

Crafting Station

A Gondorian Workbench (Superior Workbench) may be purchased in the in-game Lotro Store for installation at your Personal House or Kin house.
This workbench can be placed in a Small Yard or Large Furniture Hook to allow you to perform Forester, Tailor, Woodworker or Jeweller crafting at your house.
