"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."

Woodworking is the art of carving and whittling weapons from wood. A Woodworker can produce stout clubs, hammers, staves, and spears for melee use, as well as ranged weapons such as bows, crossbows, and javelins and Instruments for the Minstrel, such as clarinets, drums, harps, flutes, lutes, and theorbos. When he has honed his skills enough, the Woodworker can even produce Legendary Items that any hero would be proud to wield.

In his spare time, a woodworker may also whittle horns for use by the Champion, banner crests to inspire the Captain's herald, and intricate shield carvings to empower the Warden, or he can carve Warden battle-hymns and inscribe Rune-keeper parchments. The woodworker can also craft furniture for the home and fishing poles.

A Woodworker primarily crafts with treated wood produced by a Forester and Crafting Rare Components.

Critical Success

To critically succeed while crafting item, a Woodworker must have achieved proficiency in the crafting tier for that item. After gaining proficiency, the base chance to achieve critical success is 5%.

  • Using player-crafted Woodworking Tools increases that base chance.
    • Click through to the tools index to view the percentage for any given tool.
  • Scrolls of crafting lore (produced by a Scholar) give a 1-minute buff, further increasing the chance of a critical success.
    • These scrolls provide tiered increases to the crit chance, but they are tiered by player level, not crafting level. Thus, a level 7 Supreme Master Woodworker can only use the Minor Woodworking Lore that gives a 1% crit chance increase, but a level 65 Master Apprentice Woodworker can use a Scroll of Supreme Woodworking Lore that gives a 12.5% increase.
  • Certain recipes have an optional ingredient, resin; the type of resin used is based on the crafting level of any given recipe, but using resins gives a flat (not tiered) increase of 45% to the crit chance.

Crafting Guild

Crafting Guilds are Reputation factions that grant advantages in recipe execution. Reputation is increased by bartering special crafted items. Membership in a Crafting Guild used to be exclusive - you can be a member of 2 crafting guilds at a time (as of Update 25).[1]

Woodworkers of all levels are eligible to join the Woodworker's Guild, but the guild recipes require Expert tier and above. To join a crafting guild one must first speak to a Master of Crafting Guilds, and they are always found in the vicinity of a guild hall and at many other locations. NOTE: since Update 27, players may find the guild NPCs located in the House of Craft in Minas Tirith (Midsummer) [23.2N, 54.9W] to be preferable to Esteldín, particularly for characters with the Armsman vocation, since their second guildable profession -- Weaponsmith -- can also be guilded in the same location in Minas Tirith (Midsummer), thus obviating a separate trip. Minas Tirith (Midsummer) is available to characters of all levels. At Minas Tirith (Midsummer), the carving (Reputation Item) recipes are purchased from the Guild-leader; there is no separate NPC for guild-reputation-item recipes, as there is in other locations. The only downside of Minas Tirith (Midsummer) is that the "Introduction" quests for each guilded profession cannot be turned into the Guild-leader, since those quests require a specific named NPC, who does not reside there.
