Crafting Tier

Jump to navigation Jump to search
This page is about the tier system associated with crafting. For the tier system in instances, see Tier (Instances)

While less explicit than other MMOs, tiers are an important mechanic in Lotro and an understanding of how they work is helpful when explaining other game concepts. You will notice that while tiers do not correspond to regions, they may correspond to areas. While there is not a significant difficulty gap between tiers, you will notice a difference in the rewards gained by completing tasks - your bags will fill quickly if you move between tiers without clearing them first. Crafters will be aware that the components they require can be found in certain areas but not others, and should also realise that dropped recipes will only be found in areas with a matched difficulty level.
