The setting of The Two Towers is unmistakably in the middle of
the War of the Ring, so combat is crucial. However, not all lands
are yet war-torn, and there are still places of comfort where
the people can enjoy the simple trades and crafts. These crafts
are known as tradeskills, and civilians can master more tradeskills
than any other profession.
Mastery of a tradeskill can provide a good source of income
selling the results of your trade, whether selling to a shop
or custom-made clothing to another player.
Tradeskills must be learned from a non-player character that
provides instruction in the trade, so to get started you will
first have to find your teacher.
