Crafting Guilds main info

Crafting Guilds are new in Mines of Moria and the crafting guilds are independent of character level. As with the other tiers and levels of gear you get more stats on an item than the previous tier, that has not changed. The big change is that a critted piece has a much larger variance in stats than there was before. You can raise your reputation in a guild by turning in items that you make via your chosen profession.
Joining Crafting guilds gives you access to "special" recipes that allows you guaranteed results on crit items - crit also includes results with multiple items.

You need to have opened Tier 3 (expert) to join.
The crafting guilds are a nice touch and as you advance in the guild of your choosen profession you can purchase recipes that guarantee crited product. For instance at Kindred you can purchase an etched Beryl ring recipe and get the etched beryl ring. You will not be able to crank these out in mass quanity though as there are cool down timers of 1 day, 3 days and 5 days according to the recipe. (the etched beryls are 5 days).
There are recipes for making multiple mats and all tiers of crafted items, all are guarantee crits. Each of those recipes will require one of the items that you craft for turn ins to the crafting Guild though so you will have the choice until you reach kindred if you wish to craft that item for guild turn in or use it to craft a particular item. If you are crafting an item for sale or for a friend, the question you will need to ask yourself is, Am I willing to use my every 5 day crafted item in this recipe for this purpose?
Note: If you are Not yet GMed, you might want to wait on GMing, as the items needed to level your rep guild also provides actual crafting XP (up to 70 XP per item!)

For the crafting Guilds you have to choose 1 and only 1 to join, so if you are an Metalsmith you need to choose just one guild to join, metalsmith or Tailor. Then it is just like crafting for the rep places, you gather mats and craft items to turn into your choosed Guild Master to raise your rep within that Guild. With each level of rep reached you can purchase the crit recipes for that completed tier.You can opt to switch Guilds, but you will lose your reputation if you do (similar to how you lose any craft Xp if you switch to a vocation that does not have one you already leveled). The daily limits are per item size so you can for example make 3 small (expert, artisian, master) in one day. Making all possible items per day (not including supreme) you can be done in 22 days. If you use supreme (mats only from moria, but rare) you can be done in 15 days.

Where you can find guilds?

  1. Metalsmith Guild - Thorin's hall (by the Crafting area)
  2. Weaponsmith Guild - Thorin's Hall (by the Crafting area)
  3. Cooking Guild - Michel Delvin (by the Superior Oven area)
  4. Jeweler Guild - Esteldin (at the back, on the second floor of most buildings)
  5. Woodworking Guild - Esteldin (near the front)
  6. Tailoring Guild - Esteldin (above the current Crafting hall)
  7. Scholar Guld - Rivendell (second floor, above the Bank)

When you join you will see three NPCs. One sells recipes used to make crafting guild rep items. These are work just like crafting for rep with other factions, but with an additional restriction that each recipe has a cooldown and can only be executed anywhere from once per day to once per week.
The next NPC is the guild leader, basically just the guy you turn in the crafted rep items for guild rep.
The final NPC is the rewards vendor. This vendor sells special recipes which make guaranteed crit versions of existing recipes, and depending on guild either legendary items themselves or items related to them. The catch with these recipes is that the require rep items as components (which have cooldowns to make), and the recipes themselves have cooldowns as well.

Info about Legendary Crafting Items

At Kindred level you can purchase recipes for and craft legendary items. There are alot of materials used in crafting a legendary weapon or item and they are also random in stats, some will be good and some will be not so good, it's still all random.

  1. The jeweler will be making the rune stones for the Rune keepers, and the legendaries she can make will be the RK runestones.
  2. The scholar will get new potion recipes, new fire oil recipes, new breech finder recipes and a new t6 master journal recipe. (no new dyes) Legendaries will be the minstrel book and Lore Master book.
  3. The Tailor or course has all new gear recipes and can make the legendary Burg tools and RK bags. (the new armour looks amazing)
  4. The farmer has new recipes but no guild to join.
  5. No Guild for Forester, Propector
  6. The Cook has new recipes and the food on all tiers has changes. Many of the foods will now offer bonuses to fear, wound, posion etc removal. The legendary the cook can make is a cup of tea that when you drink it you will get a temporary bonus to the % of xp your legendary gains while hunting.
  7. Woodworker is no longer over looked there are many new bow and melee weapon recipes, as well as the Warden Javelin. The woodowrker will be able to construct all legendaries that correspond with the weapons she is able to currently make.

Every production profession makes at least two Legendary Items, except for Cook which makes the 1 hour bonus Item XP food with the guild recipe.
