In case you missed it in the Release 44 instructions, here is the text: Recipes as Loot: Many recipes that involve working with rarer materials and/or components have been moved off of merchants and are now found as loot on mid-level enemies. Crafting: Recipes Locations: We have adjusted the locations of where many recipes can be found so that not all recipes are on all merchants. Recipes are now distributed through crafting merchants, decorations merchants and loot drops. The biggest changes are that the global recipe merchants have been removed from the game, recipe inventories differ per region for some merchants, and larger cities house more skilled craftsmen that sell more recipes. This means for example that decoration recipes are now only sold on decorations merchants and there is no decoration merchant in the Grunvald region. In addition equipment, consumables and simple component recipes are now sold exclusively on crafting merchants. It also means that market stall shopkeepers no longer sell recipes. In practical terms this refers to some recipes are now drops only, such as special wooden sub-components (like a rock maple bowstave) as an example. On the other hand, all the generic crafting vendors, such as the trio from Owl's Head have now retired and their sales are now divided across the lands. This means that home decoration items are now sold by Decoration vendors in regional NPC cities. An example of this would be all wooden crafting signs are now found on the Decoration vendor in Resolute, while fireplace recipes are now sold by the Decoration vendor in Owl's Head. Each region now has a subset of these deco recipes and the Decoration vendor is usually found in a bank building. Butcher specialty recipes can at least be found in a cooking shop in Aerie. Seeds are a different subject, but the same philosophies apply when hunting seeds for planting. Cotton seeds can be found on vendors labeled 'Textiler' and one is found in a booth across from the bank in Central Brittany. POT Decoration vendors sell the craftable road recipes. On a final note, light recipes are spread across two regions, Brittany and Norgard.
