To begin your search, type the amount that you are trying to make in the "Make" textbox, the start typing in the name of the item you are making in the second textbox. A dropdown box should come up with a list of possible items. Select the item that you want and hit Go!
Golden triangles next to the ingredients mean that the item has to be crafted. Click on the name or the triangle to see what is required to craft that item.
You can also click on the golden arrows pointing down to hide the sub-items that make one of the crafted ingredients for your recipe.
By clicking this checkbox, the golden triangles next to the ingredients which require sub-ingredients of their own because they are made by a crafter disappear.
Selecting this option will only show you items which can be found as drops off of mobs, farmed as a resource, or bought off of a vendor NPC.
Selecting this option will hide any critical success optional items that a player would be able to use in the recipe.
If you hover your mouse over any icon, the tooltip that you are able to see in game when you do the same appears. This will give you information on its vendor price, any reputation requirements it has, the stats, and so on.
You can also hover your mouse over icons not found in game and they will explain their meaining.
To add an Item click on the Add Item link on the navigation bar. Once the page loads you will be presented with a few boxes to fill in.
Item Name - This is where the item name will go. I would recommend having the lorebook page for the item open so you can copy and paste the details in to avoid spelling mistakes. In this example I will use Apprentice's Ale as an Item to add. So in the Item Name box I would paste in: Apprentice's Ale
If the item is a guild item, then add (Guild) after the item name. That way when searching through the items it will be easy to determine which one is made by the guild recipe.
Eg. Red Dye is an item which can be crafted by a guild recipe. So I would add 2 items. One would be named Red Dye, and the other would be named Red Dye (Guild).
Item Price - This value will always be in copper, so if something costs 5 Silver and 53 copper then the amount to enter would be 553 likewise if something costs 5 gold and 43 copper then the amount to enter in would be 5043. If the item is a crafted item, in our case if we are using Apprentice's Ale as the example... I would have to enter the price as 0, as this item is not bought from a vendor.
Icon Link - In this box you will need to copy and paste the image link for the image of the item from the lorebook. If you are using a modern browser such as Opera, Firefox, IE9, Chrome then getting the image address is fairly straight forward. All you need to do is right click on the image of the item on the lorebook page, once the menu comes up - select "Copy Image Address" or something similar depending on your browser. Paste the copied link into the Icon Link box, the link for our example would look like this http://content.turbine.com/sites/lorebook.lotro.com/images/icons/item/food/it_drink_ale_1a.png
Lorebook Link - This is similar to the Icon Link, but a lot easier to aquire. Once you have the item lorebook page open simply copy and paste the lorebook URL into this box. For our example it would be http://lorebook.lotro.com/wiki/Item:Apprentice's_Ale
Crafted? - Select this Checkbox if the item is a crafted item. Remeber: Make the price of the item 0 if it is a crafted item.
Start typing the name of the item you wish to edit. A drop down list of all known items will appear. If your item does not appear in the list chances are it has not been added yet. Please go ahead and add the item :)
This is probably one of the more tricky bits of the editing sections. Before you add the recipe to the database you must add all the items required for the recipe to the database. Most of the base ingredients should already be added but as the game evolves new ingredients will constantly need adding. To find out if an item exists in the database start typing its name in the Ingredients text box, this will drop down a list of items which already exist in the database. Again as with the item addition I would recommend you have the lorebook page of the recipe open to copy and paste information.
Recipe Name - Copy and paste the recipe name from the lorebook page. In our example it will be Apprentice's Ale Recipe
Profession - Select the profession the recipe belongs to
Tier - Which tier is the recipe
Recipe Image Link - Similar to the Item image you will need to copy the image link of the recipe and paste it into the text box. If you are using a modern browser such as Opera, Firefox, IE9, Chrome then getting the image address is fairly straight forward. All you need to do is right click on the image of the item on the lorebook page, once the menu comes up - select "Copy Image Address" or something similar depending on your browser. Paste the copied link into the Recipe Image Link box, the link for our example would look like this http://content.turbine.com/sites/lorebook.lotro.com/images/icons/item/scroll_cook/it_rcp_c_t1_ale_1a.png
Recipe Lorebook Link - Copy and paste the recipe lorebook link into this textbox. Please note: The recipe link will look similar to http://lorebook.lotro.com/wiki/Item:Apprentice's_Ale_Recipe_(Store). Notice that the portion after /wiki/ is Item: and not Recipe: this is important as the Item: will show stats about the recipe whereas Recipe: will show ingredients of the recipe on the tooltips. So please make sure you get the Item: URL of the recipe.
Is this a Guild recipe? - Select Yes or No
Points Earned for this recipe - This information is not provided on the lorebook, so you may have to ask your friend or if you have a toon that has the recipe then you may have to look it up.
As mentioned before you will need to add the items of the recipe before adding the recipe. Fill in all the ingredients of the recipe, if there is more than one ingredient click on the "Add Another Item" button to get more text fields. Clicking on the Select checkbox and click "Delete Selected Item(s)" will remove the items from the recipe. Once all the information is entered in, hit submit.
- Fairly straight forward, edit the required fields and hit submit.
