Crafting is the way through which players can create weapons, equipments, and other useful items. There are 4 kinds of raw materials that can be gathered and 5 available crafting skills, and every character is able to take on all the skills at the same time up to a maxumim skill level of 500. After reaching a skill level 500 in a crafting skill a player is allowed to take an Artisan test, increasing the cap for that skill to 800.
The crafting system requires production points (PP's). Production points are used for each gathering attempt (10) and also to craft materials (varying cost). Production points are account bound meaning that all characters on an account share them and have a cap of 4,000. Production points regenerate at a rate of about 5 per 5 minutes regardless of whether a character on the account is logged in or not and about 1,440 can be regenerated per day. There are items that can recover production points instantly and can be bought. Crafter's cure restores 1,000 production points while Crafter's cure all restores 4,000 production points.
Crafting is a 4-step process:
Raw Material --> Refined Material --> Finished Item --> Attuned Item
Although certain steps can be skipped (ie. directly obtaining refined materials through extraction or trading instead of converting them from raw materials) or ignored (attuning is optional), this is the general flow.
Note that at level 15, the player can pick up the quest Santia's Workshop in Velika. This is the game's way of introducing the player to the crafting system. This quest provides the first recipe required for Weaponcrafting (Design: Krysteel Ingot) and walks the player through the process of acquiring materials and forging.
There are 4 kinds of raw materials that can be gathered.
- Ores are gathered through the Mining skill
- Fibers are gathered through the Plant Gathering skill
- Essences are gathered through the Energy Harnessing skill
- Hides are gathered as drops from all monsters
Then there are two kinds of materials that don't really count as a type of raw material, but are necessary for crafting and thus deserves special mention and a unique classification of their own:

How to Craft Edit
There are 3 steps to crafting:
- Learning the recipe
- Obtaining the material
- Crafting the item
Most recipes can be bought from NPCs. The rarer ones, however, can only be obtained as drops from mobs or bought from other players. Once the recipe has been obtained, learning it is as simple as right-clicking the recipe from the player's inventory.
There are three ways to get materials:
- Gathering the raw materials yourself
- Extracting refined materials from gear
- Buying from vendors or other players
Then select the item that you want to craft from the list of recipes that you've already learned on the left, then click the 'Create' button at the bottom of the right side.
