Is it simple or quite complicated.

It's not too complicated, just takes some practice and paying attention to the details.

There are many types of crafting - check this link out: http://ddowiki.com/page/Crafting

Basically there are 4 steps in all crafting:

1. Find a recipe or an online crafting tool to help you plan your crafting (see DDO Helpful Links for links to some crafting planners).
2. Acquire the item and/or ingredients you need (some items/ingredients are sold on the AH, some are bound and can't be sold/traded).
3. Gain access to the appropriate device (altar/forge/stone of change/workstation etc.). Some are in quests that require flagging.
4. Use the selected device to craft your item (either building it from scratch or upgrading an existing item).

Have fun!

P.S. I'd recommend talking to someone who's done it before - that can be reassuring before you start.

You bet - it certainly can be scary - but that's part of the fun of it.

Especially when you're crunching large devil scales on the forge that are very rare and sell for 500K pp on the AH.

Green steel items may require ingredients worth a total of 10M pp (not to mention your time spent gathering them).

That's why when you craft, triple check your work before pushing the forge button - once the forge's jaws close, it's final.

The two go hand in hand.

Funny how people get braver after they earn the ingredients to craft something awesome. Wink

Oh, and like chefs burning the bacon, we all have made a mistake or two while crafting.

Just don't make a mistake on a tier 3 double-shard green steel item/weapon (24 large ingredients) - that hurts - bad. Laughing

Tier 2 green steel is still very useful and much less risky to craft (if you screw up, not as big a deal as tier 3).

If you know for sure you want a tier 3 item, then go for it.

My favorite green steel planner:

http://www.iro.umontreal.ca/~delallea/ddo/shroud/index.php

You first create your green steel item/weapon in Meridia at the Altar of Fecundity from ingredients you have collected while exploring the Vale of Twilight (you must have done the 5 flagging quests in the Vale).

Then you upgrade your green steel item/weapon at the Shroud raid altars:
Tier 1 = Altar of Invasion (part #1 of the Shroud) [small ingredients and Shard of Power]
Tier 2 = Altar of Subjugation (part #3 of the Shroud) [medium ingredients and Shard of Great Power]
Tier 3 = Altar of Devastation (part #5 of the Shroud) [large ingredients and Shard(s) of Supreme Power]

You can also ask a Helper's Guild member to let you on their airship (they have all 3 Shroud Altars).

Nice new explanation of crafting for the new p2p quests in Lordmarch Plaza:

http://ddowiki.com/page/Cauldron_of_Sora_Katra

And here's the link to the new p2p quests themselves:

http://ddowiki.com/page/Attack_on_Stormreach

*Note that you need to have done all 3 previous ftp Lordsmarch Plaza quests at least once:

Feeling the need for an epic weapon, I have decided to go for a Lit II Greataxe.... this is what I'm planning:

This is my next little project Very Happy

http://www.iro.umontreal.ca/~delallea/ddo/shroud/cgi-bin/shroud.cgi?forced=mineral_1_&altar=3&weapon=falchion&item=item&craft=1&effects=mineral2_weap_,healing_amp_20,exc_con_2,acid

A Min II Falchion, with +2 exception CON and +20% Healing Amp. That should make Gilders more hardy in Shroud/ToD. The extra Acid damage is just there because it was about the only thing I could add that was useful after the Min II, healing amp and +2 Con were chosen. I still get holy damage and extra damage to evil outsiders as I'm a KotC Pally Smile

I don't know why, I just find this one easier to use :s

It says in each box what is being added at each altar. In this case it's Holy damage, good burst and good blast. It also has greater disruption and a raise dead clicky Smile

It's basically a cheap item to make because I didn't want to waste mats on a battleaxe.
