Crafting enables you to make many items in Arkandian Explorer. There are three categories of crafting: alchemy, tailoring, and blacksmithing. You can unlock almost all of the recipes for each category, several at a time, from repeatable dungeons that are unique to each category and become more difficult (and more rewarding) each time they are cleared.
|Craft||Used for||Dungeon Name|
|Alchemy||Potions||Crazy Alchemist's Dungeon|
|Tailoring||Armor||Lunatic Tailor's Dungeon|
|Blacksmithing||Weapons||Insane Blacksmith's Dungeon|
Items to be createdEdit
Successful uses of Alchemy result in single-use potions, ranging from simple healing potions to tough elixirs with permanent effects. Tailoring gives armor (including heavy ones) and blacksmithing gives weapons (including staves and books). Weapons and armors will never be enchanted but always socketed, allowing you to add jewels to custom-make your items.
Success and failureEdit
The success chance depends on your skill levels and the difficulty of the recipe. Your Alchemy/Tailoring/Blacksmithing skills influence the related crafts, while Artistry influences all crafting. Each time you succeed to make an item, the related crafting skill goes up. Each time you fail to create an item, there is a chance that Artistry increases. In addition, on failure, your Scavenging skill may be levelled up.
Hint and TricksEdit
Use the easiest recipes with the cheapest ingreadients (and the highest chance) to train your Alchemy/Tailoring/Blacksmithing skills before starting to create really good items.
Train up your Artistry and Scavenging by "experimenting", using only one common resource in the matrix. The crafting will fail, but the skills go up quickly at minimal cost.
Gain ingredients from repeatedly looting the crafting dungeons. If you do not pick up the recipe chest on level 2, you can re-enter and re-loot the same dungeon. If you pick up the chest with the last missing recipes, the crafting dungeons disappear.
In addition, use disenchanters to decompose the junk (errr... I mean: items) you find when exploring, to get resources and jewels, as well as Enchanting and Mysticism skills up. Insert useless jewels into weak items to train Enchanting.
