Crafting Recipes

Now, to be able to craft in the first place, you need certain recipes. There are recipes for practically everything in the game such as building materials, food, armor, tools, weapons, and more.

It’s important to note that you can learn recipes that are too high-level for you at your current level, however, you can’t craft those recipes until you meet the recipe level.

You can purchases recipes from the following NPCs:

  • Kurt the Merchant
  • Pilgrim’s Rock Herbalist
  • Meggy
  • Armoursmith
  • Weaponsmith
  • Glory Quartermaster
  • Harlan the Tailor
  • Rodrig the Leatherworker

  • Capital City Merchant
  • Quartermaster of Lordly Haven
  • Quartermaster of Hordun Temple
  • Quartermaster of Lord’s Wrath Abbey
  • Midlander Glory Vendors
  • Sangmar Glory Vendors

You can also obtain recipes by looting chests and enemies, as well as through rewards for completing certain quests. Additionally, you can grab recipes from The Market too!

Mass Production

There are also special recipes called Mass Production Recipes – they create 10x the amount of a normal recipe. You can purchase this type of recipe from the Glory Quartermaster for a total of 3K Contribution Points (you also need to have Glory level 5!)

  • Mass Production Flour
  • Mass Production Canvas
  • Mass Production Threads
  • Mass Production Charcoal

Crafting Workshops

Each recipe has its own preferred crafting workshop. By using the preferred workshop, you can yield a considerable amount of items and EXP. You can craft items without a specific workshop, or you can use the wrong one, but it certainly hinders your overall yield. Here are the crafting workshops:

  • Engineering – Lumber Mills
  • Weapon Forging
  • Armoursmithing
  • Tailor and Leatherworking
  • Cooking and Alchemy – Inside inns
  • Villager’s Workshop – Farms

Crafting Workstations

Workstations are used to craft specific items! You can leave your materials to process at a workstation while you keep yourself busy doing something else in the game. If you place a workstation in a Crafting District or a loot zone, you can receive a bonus!

Keep in mind that all workstations need oil, bait, or fuel to function. Additionally, you need the correct amount of materials to craft your desired item. Here are the available workstations:

  • Metallurgic Furnace – Steel, bulat, dwizer
  • Bloomery – Lumps and steel
