Crafting Topics: Professions, 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 Crafting 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

Resources are generally "Nodes" found across the lands of Middle-earth, which provide crafting materials in Crafting Recipes.

Artifacts can only be harvested by characters with the Scholar profession. The character must have the proficiency for the previous tier of the artifact, for example in order to harvest Broken Urn the character should be Apprentice Scholar. Scholars are granted the ability to Track Artifacts, study the artifact using Crafting Tools, and process the ore into ingots at a Forge.


Artifact node
Each artifact node yields a small number of texts and trinkets and a small chance of other crafting materials such as rare components and mastery components.


The following Professions can use these texts and materials in their own crafting recipes:
  • Scholar
    • Note: The scholar is the only profession that can use these materials for crafting.

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

Resources are generally "Nodes" found across the lands of Middle-earth, which provide crafting materials in Crafting Recipes.

Ore Deposits can only be harvested by characters with the Prospector profession. The character should have achieved proficiency for the previous tier of the ore, for example in order to harvest Barrow-iron Deposit (which is journeyman tier) the character should have obtained the title Apprentice Prospector. Prospectors are granted the ability to Track Mines, harvest the ore deposit using Crafting Tools, and process the ore into ingots at a Forge.


Ore deposit node
Normal yields 1 to 3 ore and a small chance of other crafting materials such as dye materials, Gems, rare components and mastery components.
These ore nodes also have a chance to spawn a Rich / Bountiful deposit which can yield 4 to 6 ore and have a higher chance to yield these crafting materials.

Resource Nodes or Resource Spawns

For all Tiers there is a small change that you will obtain rare crafting components from Resource Spawns or Farmer Fields.

See the list above for links to the Tier specific Resource Spawns.

  • Further Information on Nodes.

There is no inherent 'refresh content timer' built into any resource Node. Once a Node has spawned into the Game World it will remain there until a Player comes and gathers from that Node. All the contents of any Node are randomly generated from a small Database Table of Contents. Random numbers between 1 and 2 and 3 for base materials and (mostly) single instances for additional materials gained, such as Gems or rare drops such as Shards. The interaction of a Player is the only time the contents of any Node is generated.

Mass Resource Node Maps

There are some mass resource nodes areas.

See this list of Crafting Instances for instances where ore/wood/artifacts can be farmed.

Drops

To find Tier 2 (Journeyman) through Tier 6 (Supreme) 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.

Barter

Barter from one of these folks or see the list above for links to the Barterer

Quests

Some Tiers have repeatable quests that reward a rare crafting component. See the list above for links to the quests.

Opening the  Rare Crafting Component selection box allows the user to choose one of the Rare crafting components. This item is a selectable reward for the weekly quest On a Mission (Weekly).
