Rift Imbued Leather Quest

Rift Imbued Leather Quest

Possibly the most sought after rare recipe in Telara, and the most difficult to acquire, is that of Imbued Leather.  This rare leather is used by outfitters, artificers, weaponsmiths, and armorsmiths to make their highest quality product.  After many weeks of searching, we have finally found this item, and it is our pleasure to share as much information as we can about this rare leather.

Leather Quest Details

As with all leather recipes, this one should drop off any skinnable mob that produces ironhide (or possibly soulbind).  Because only level 50+ animals can produce ironhide, this particular drop is very uncommon.  We received our drop off a rare mob in Stillmoor, as listed above, but there are a significant number of 50th level animals in Stillmoor, Shimmersand, and Iron Pine Peaks.  Any confirmation about these possible other sources would be very welcome.

Imbued Leather is one of three Rare Leather Recipe Quests available for more powerful crafting recipes.  Each of these leathers require you to find a rare sample then complete a quest requiring ten of two different types of leather.  The recipe then requires two leathers and a purchasable item to make the finished product.  The completed product can then be used by several different crafters to make better equipment for players.

These rare leathers are, in rising order of power, Fine Leather, Reinforced Leather, and Imbued Leather, and the information we have on the Rift Quest for each can be found by following each link.

Crafting Requiring Runeguard Faction

It has recently come to our attention that several crafting quests that required Runeguard faction (Friendly), are no longer requiring this as a minimum.  Specifically, we first noticed this on our Cinerium recipe, but looked back at some of our stored crafting recipes (Bronze in particular) and found that the requirement has vanished.  At this time, we are unsure of whether this was intentional or not, but the Guardians are all praying to the Vigil that the requirement does not return…. Defiants are researching the issue and deliberating, or whatever Defiants do.

We here at Lordrcane.com will update this information if it changes, but let us rejoice for the moment and enjoy it!

This has been a public service announcement about Crafting in Rift.  We now return you to your regularly scheduled carnage and mayhem.  Again, at this time, the Runeguard Faction requirements for many if not all crafting recipes has been removed, and we hope it does not return.

Rift Harvesting Minimums

Rift Harvesting Minimums

Greeting Telarans!  From our explorations and crafting exploits we bring you the skills needed to harvest these materials, and a few locations to find them.  As with most of our information, it is decidedly biased toward Guardians, but as much information as we have for our Defiant opponents has also been included.

We hope this harvesting information, along with the upgraded materials recipes we have been finding will help our crafter friends get everything they can from Rift.  With the harvesting skills and level minimums, this should help you plan your Rift crafting plans.
