 Crafting Guide
Crafting, introduced with Module 6, is a way to create and upgrade items through increasingly powerful tiers of item attributes added at each stage through to the final finished stage (in most cases an extra special effect.)
In all cases you begin crafting by using ingredients gathered in quests, raids (and their end rewards) or wilderness rare chests.
The exception to this rule is Cannith Crafting - the only crafting type with which you can contribute your character skills, feats, or level-ups towards in your characters build. Simplified you begin by collecting/looting/creating a base item and then begin upgrading it with ingredients which are (dependant on the crafting type) crafted themselves. Eg: Alchemical ingredients are crafted by you, shroud ingredients are not so you simply loot them from chests.
|Stone of Change altars. The first is located in the Marketplace to the right of the entrance to Lordsmarch Bank, the second is located just to the right of the front of the tower in The Twelve, the third possible location for a Stone of Change altar is on a Guild Airship that has reached Guild Level 32 or more typically at Guild Level 40 through the acquisition of renown. The Stone of Change is used to upgrade existing items (non-"named", randomly-generated items). The Stone of Change is also used for binding the Guild Augment Crystals used in Guild Crafting (see below).
Introduction: Update 9
This crafting system allows players to construct completely customized weapons, shields, armor, jewelry, and clothing, using various Essences obtained from treasure chests throughout the game or by Deconstructing other randomly generated treasures.
This is a fairly complex system, and recipes require you to have certain crafting levels in Arcane/Divine/Elemental crafting schools, which you can see on your character sheet.
Introduction: Update 17
Augment Slot can now be found at all levels. This is a revamp of the old Epic Augments and Guild Crafting allowing a slot-at-will type of item modification. Items with Guild Augment Slot ceased to drop, however Guild Augmentation vendors and its mechanic remain unchanged.
Introduction: Update 7
Detailed information can be found at the Trapmaking Feat page.
From time to time through each year Turbine presents us with special events on the servers within the game. Each type of event is a reward based crafting system in its own right with some items that you might class as essential for your character such as Eternal Flask of Rum from Crystal Cove or a +5 Ability Tome from the Mabar Festival
 Item Upgrading
There are many named items from various Adventure Packs which can be upgraded or have their initial enchantments restored by using ingredients gathered in the same quest module or later in the story-line. Players often call this type of mechanic "Unlocking" or "Upgrading". Some of them can further be upgraded to their Epic crafted versions.
