Differences between production and refining

It is important to pay attention to the differences between craftsmanship and refinement as there are some benefits that will only affect craftsmanship and others to refinement. For example, reducing crafting taxes will not reduce crafting costs, even if you are using what looks like a crafting station to crafting materials.

 

The best way to think about these two sets of trading skills is that crafting is usually used to craft items that players will directly use; such as equipment, weapons and consumables. Then, refining involves taking raw materials / harvested materials and converting the resource into material that can then be used in crafting. Masonry is a bit of an outsider as you can upgrade Tuning Orbs for Expeditions.

 

Crafting Stations and Refinement Stations can be displayed in each settlement by clicking on a given settlement. On the right, you can also see the crafting tax and refining tax. (the third inheritance is craftsmanship, and the last, fourth is the processing tax). For some reason, all the refinement station visuals show a level 1 level lower than they actually are when looking at them on the map, while the crafting stations show the correct level.

 

 

 

Both refining and crafting have a filter that you can use to help you find the items. At the top of the crafting list, you can filter by name, have items, level, your skills, and crafting abilities at your station. In addition to this filter, you can sort items by name, level, level, equipment score and amount of crafting experience.

 

 

How crafts work

Crafts are divided into 5 levels which are divided every 50 levels for easy tracking. Each level is also assigned an initial equipment rating.

  • Level 1 GS 100 Recipe Level 0
  • Level 2 GS 200 Recipe levels 1-49
  • Level 3 GS 300 Recipe levels 50-99
  • Level 4 [GS 400] Recipe levels 100-149
  • Level 5 [GS 500] Recipe Levels 150-200

These levels are the levels of the item and the required level of the station needed to craft it. So if you want to craft a level 5 item, you have to craft it at the appropriate level 5 station.

 

There are 3 main types of crafts; the first type are recipes that have a specific list of items you must use to craft, the second is artifact crafting which requires you to have a specific item in your bag to view the crafting, the last recipe types are the ones that have a set of items that you can use to craft creatures. Items that require specific items are those that have values ​​set for them. Things like named weapons, potions, and ammo. Items that are more dynamic and have lots of options usually have lots of different crafting options:

The effect on the equipping score of the second item will depend on the level you create. When you craft a rank 5 item and use all tier 5 materials, your equipment score should default to 500, however if you use lower tier materials for secondary items, your base equipment value will drop. The same is true of the other direction; if you craft a level 2 item and use a level 5 material, your equipment score will increase.

 

Division:

  • For each drop in the level with recyclable materials, the minimum equipment rating will drop by 5
  • With each increase in the level with additional materials, the minimum equipment rating will increase by 5
  • Using rare resources will increase your min / max equipment score by 5
  • Using rare refined materials will increase your min / max equipment score by 15
  • The above rules may overlap; which means that rare material 1 tier lower will give you 0 min / 5 max gear value, and 1 tier higher will give you 10 min / 5 max gear value

 

General Item Rules:

  • Uncommon (green) items reduce the level requirement by 2
  • Rare (blue) items reduce the level requirement by 3
  • Epic (purple) items reduce the level requirement by 4
  • Legendary (orange) items reduce the level requirement by 5

 

In addition, your minimum / maximum equipment value for each level gradually increases as you increase the level of the corresponding trading skill. (See table below for exact breakdown) The reason all this matters is that you can either craft items with really high gear value or some low level gear to use. For example, star metal tools are designed for items level 40 for their level, however you have the option of lowering the required level to 32, lowering the equipment score and making it less frequent; however, you can only do this between Engineering levels 100-140.

 

Pumping Mercury

Mercury is a blue resource that can be used in crafting or fast travel. When you use this in crafting, it basically guarantees that the item will cast possible attributes / attachments / gem slots on the item when possible. When adding Mercury, you can't go beyond what it takes to maximize it all, so you don't have to worry about over-spending.

When you use a crafting mod with Mercury, the maximum azoth max required will decrease as you will guarantee a perk slot when using the mod. This is helpful in fine-tuning any craft, and saves you azoth when trying to craft a specific item with a set of benefits.

 

This option is only available for items that have dynamics / deviations from possible crafting outcomes. Static items do not have this option as you are always guaranteed to get the same from these crafts.

 

How yield chances work

Odds of Profit are the likelihood of an item being duplicated when crafting / upgrading. The odds of profit mainly affect the ability to trade refining, but the effects can also be seen in crafting stations. This is very similar to crafting because if you use an item with a higher level, you will get a better chance than the default one.

 

If you are producing a steel bar (Tier 3) and want to increase your refining efficiency, you can choose a 4/5 refining material to increase your chances. This also means there is no material that can be used to increase the efficiency of refining Orichalcum Ingots as it is level 5 and there is no level 6 material.

 

Refiners only exist at levels 3, 4 and 5. The amount of increase / decrease when using an uneven level varies depending on what you produce. There is no "simple chart" as the game breaks it down over each item. Things like Steel Ingots can get a 50% increase for chances of getting; while food will get a 10% increase. When crafting / upgrading items that have an increased drop chance, you can see anywhere from a 10% to 100% drop chance increase.

 

Your trading skill level in the appropriate skill also affects your profit chances. [Trade Skill Level / 10 =% Yield Chance] This means if you have a Meltdown Level of 200, the default yield chance is 20%. You will see this when upgrading a level 2 item in a crafting station. When above level 2 there is a decrease in the yield per level.

 

Level drop:

  • Level 2: 0% reduced profit chance
  • Level 3: 2% reduced profit chance
  • Level 4: 5% Reduced Profit Chance
  • Level 5: 7% reduced profit chance
  • Special Items: 100% Reduced Profit Chance

 

Special items include tuning orbs, refining material swap, T5.1 items, and a few more.

 

Gems do not benefit from the level system and the chance of profit is only related to your gem cut level. This includes dips from a higher tier, meaning you will have a 20% chance of producing an additional level 5 gem when cutting.

The user interface likes to round your chances. By looking at the screenshot above, you can see that the stone processing level is 86 and the chance to craft an additional item is 9%. Using the formula mentioned earlier, the chance of getting increased performance in this example is 8.6% chance.

 

Create a GS level chart

Below is the minimum / maximum addition to your equipment score based on your trading skill level for this profession.

For example, if you have level 14 armor, you will need to add +15 to your maximum gear value for level 2 crafting.

level | Min T2 | Max. T2 | Min T3 | Max. T3 | Min T4 | Max T4 | Min T5 | Max T5 | -------------------------------------------------- ------------------------------ 1 | 0 | 5 | 0 | 0 | 0 | 0 | 0 | 0 | 2 | 0 | 5 | 0 | 0 | 0 | 0 | 0 | 0 | 3 | 0
