ExclamationFAQ: Crafting and disassembling items, recipes and patterns

FAQ: Crafting and disassembling items, recipes and patterns

In TSW, crafting (“tradeskilling”) is at the same time very simple and very sophisticated, but it is also very unusual.

The principles
Items are made from various components / materials that have to be combined to form specific patterns (symbolic shapes). The same pattern with different components / materials will give different results, or no result at all.

A tool “Assembling kit“, of different types, is required for a lot of crafting operations but not all.

Components / materials drop from mobs, or as mission rewards, or can be bought from other players

Items can be destroyed to get components / materials back but with a loss in quality

Items quality goes from 0 to 10 (Quality level: “QL”) and for each quality (except 0 and 1 it seems) they can be
- white (very ordinary, starting items in general)
- green (very decent quality)
- blue (high quality: a blue at QL “N” is usually as good as a green QL N+2 and sometimes better; for example a blue QL 3 is often comparable to a green QL5)
- purple (exceptional)
Components / materials quality follows a 5 quality steps scale, dropping from start zones to high end zones.
- Base (mostly Kingsmouth)
- Imperfect
- Normal
- Sacred
- Pure (mostly Transylvania)
Components / materials can be upgraded by combining 5 lower quality materials to make one of the quality just above

Making items (”Assembling” in TSW vocabulary) in TSW is entirely done in the Assembling window that is opened with the “y” key

The Assembling window is used to make items (“assemble”) or to return them to basic components (“disassemble”)

The Assembling window presents:
- a 5x4 grid (horizontal x vertical): components / materials will be placed there
- a “tool” slot: a tool (an “assembling kit”) will place there when necessary (not always)
- a result / item slot: the result will be pre-visualized there and then created there / items to disassemble will be placed there too
- a button to assemble or disassemble

Disassembling items
- y key to open the crafting interface

- in the slot "item", put the item you want to disassemble

- if it can be disassembled, the button "assemble" will turn into "disassemble and will light up

- the elements you can get back by disassembling will be shown in the assemble grid

- check if the elements are really what you want to get

- press the button

- in the grid area you'll get materials / components

- NOTE DOWN the shape / pattern they form: you'll be able to create an item of the same kind by reproducing this pattern. (This FAQ provides the known patterns in a section below.)

- Green, Blue, and Purple items of the same type give the same elements. There is no bonus attached to the color (rarity)

- White (starting) items can't be disassembled

- IMPORTANT: when you disassemble an item, the elements you get back are one quality level below the ones that were used to create the item. For example, if you disassemble an item made with “Pure” quality elements, you'll get “Sacred” quality elements only.

- EVEN MORE IMPORTANT: pay a lot of attention to thz elements shown in the grid because disassembling does NOT give you ALL the elements used to make an item!
For example, if you disassemble a weapon with a glyph, you will only get metal from the weapon, and nothing that was used to make the glyph.

- There is no way to remove a glyph or signet from a weapon.

Materials and components & Upgrading them
You have 4 types of materials, and 9 components (Runes)

Materials:
Metal: to make all weapons and Barrier potions
Water: related to health
Dust: related to healing
Fire: related to attack and damage
Runes, divided in offensive and defensive runes:
Offensive Runes
Denkyem Rune: gives critical damage
Lu Rune: gives critical rating
Trinity Rune: gives penetration rating
Wheel Rune: gives hit rating

Defensive Runes
Earth Rune: gives block rating
Koru Rune: gives physical protection
Pentagram Rune: gives magical protection
Wedjat Rune: gives defense rating
Yggdrasil Rune: gives evade rating
Material and Runes follow a 5 quality steps scale:
Base (mostly from Kingsmouth)
Imperfect
Normal (the adjective “normal” doesn't appear in the name)
Sacred
Pure (mostly from Transylvania)
So, for example you have Base water, Imperfect water, Water (no adjective for normal), Sacred water, and Pure water.

Upgrading material and Runes:
You can “refine” lower quality elements to create higher ones.

Place 5 elements of the same kind and quality stacked in the assembly grid of the assembling window, and click the assemble button. (They have to be stacked.)

So with 5 elements of rank "N", you make one element of rank "N+1"
For example: 5 'Base Koru Rune' will make 1 Imperfect 'Koru Rune'

You can place more than 5 stacked elements in the assemble grid: each time you press the assemble button, 5 will be used to make one element of the next quality. When you are done, you can get the remaining elements back to your inventory.

Assembling kits
Assembling kits are the only tool necessary to create items. They are not always required. (For example, adding a glyph to a weapon requires not tool, as we'll see later in this FAQ.)

Assembling kits come in QL's from QL 1 to QL 10 and in rarity (color) from green to purple
- green (very decent quality)
- blue (high quality: a blue at QL “N” is usually as good as a green QL N+2 and sometimes better; for example a blue QL 3 is often comparable to a green QL5)
- purple (exceptional)
The QL and the color of the Assembling kit determines the QL and (when applicable) the color of the item created.
For example a QL 5 Green Weapon Assembling kit will make a QL 5 green weapon, and a QL3 Blue Weapon Assembling kit will make a QL3 blue weapon.
The Assembling kit also indicates what quality of components must be used:
QL 1 kits: Base materials
QL 2-3 kits: Imperfect materials
QL 4-6 kits: Normal materials
QL 7-8 kits: Sacred materials
QL 9-10 kits: Pure materials
Assembling kits are:
- Weapons Assembling kits, QL 1-10, green to purple: to make any weapon; usually drops form mobs
- Talismans Assembling kits, QL 1-10, green to (?) purple: to make any kind of talisman
- Consumable Assembling kits, QL 1-10, green: to make “potions” of various kinds; sold by some Council of Venice NPC's, drops from mobs
- Glyph Assembling kits, no QL, no color: to make any glyph

Weapons making
All weapons use only metal.

All weapons use 7 metal clumps

The quality and color of the weapon is determined only by the Weapon Assembling kit (see Assembling kits section above)

The quality of the metal to use is determined by the Weapon Assembling kit (see Assembling kits section above):
QL 1 kits: Base materials
QL 2-3 kits: Imperfect materials
QL 4-6 kits: Normal materials
QL 7-8 kits: Sacred materials
QL 9-10 kits: Pure materials
To make a weapon:
- Place the 7 pieces of metal of the right quality in the grid of the Assemble window
- Form the pattern (shape) corresponding to the weapon you want (see just below)
- When the pattern is right, the Tool slot lights up
- Place the Weapon Assembling kit in the Tool slot
- The result is previewed in the result slot, move your mouse above it to see the characteristics
- If all if OK, press the assemble button

Talismans making
Talismans use Fire, Dust, or Water

Talismans use different numbers of elements to be made:
12 for Head talismans
10 for Neck and Belt
8 for all others
The quality and color of the Talisman is determined only by the Talisman Assembling kit (see Assembling kits section above)

The quality of the elements to use is determined by the Talisman Assembling kit (see Assembling kits section above)
QL 1 kits: Base materials
QL 2-3 kits: Imperfect materials
QL 4-6 kits: Normal materials
QL 7-8 kits: Sacred materials
QL 9-10 kits: Pure materials
The role of the Talisman is determined by the material used
- Fire: makes “Offensive/DPS” Talismans (damage/attack focused + small lifepoints)
- Dust: makes “Healing” Talismans (healing bonus focused + small lifepoints)
- Water: makes “Tanking” Talismans (protection focused + high lifepoints)

To make a talisman:
- Place the 8 or 10/ or 12 elements of the right type and quality in the grid of the Assemble window
- Form the pattern (shape) corresponding to the talisman you want (see just below)
- When the pattern is right, the Tool slot lights up
- Place the Talisman Assembling kit in the Tool slot
- The result is previewed in the result slot, move your mouse above it to see the characteristics
- If all if OK, press the assemble button

Potions making

All Potions use 8 elements and the same pattern (a bottle shape)

The quality of the elements to use is determined by the Consumable Assembling kit (see Assembling kits section above)
QL 1 kits: Base materials
QL 2-3 kits: Imperfect materials
QL 4-6 kits: Normal materials
QL 7-8 kits: Sacred materials
QL 9-10 kits: Pure materials
Consumable Assembling kits are sold by some Council of Venice vendors; they can also drop from mobs

Potions use different elements depending on the potion wanted:
Elements can't be combined and must all be of the same kind (you can't make a potion giving evades + leech, for example)
- Fire: Energy Drink Leech
- Metal: Energy Drink Barrier
- Trinity: Anima Penetration Rating
- Yggdarsil Rune: Anima Evade Rating
- Water: Energy Drink HOT
- Wheel: Anima Hit Rating
(There might be other combinations but they are not known yet)

To make a potion:
- Place the 8 elements of the right type and quality in the grid of the Assemble window
- Form the bottle pattern (shape)
- When the pattern is formed, the Tool slot lights up
- Place the Consumable Assembling kit in the Tool slot
- The result is previewed in the result slot, move your mouse above it to see the characteristics
- If all if OK, press the assemble button

Glyphs making
Glyphs form the "Prefix" of an item (for example “Resilient ring”) and add a bonus to the item

Glyphs come in QL up to 10 and in green, blue, and purple colors (rarity), and can be added to items of any QL with a glyph slot.

The bonus given to the item depends on the QL of the glyph. If you use a glyph QL 10 in weapon, it will do more than a glyph QL 4 in the same weapon.

Glyphs can only be added to items that have a glyph slot open or items that already have a glyph installed. In this case the new glyph will destroy the old one.

There is no way to remove a glyph or signet from a weapon.

If a item with glyph is disassembled, you don't get back the elements used for the glyph.


All glyphs use 4 runes in a same “cross” pattern

The color (rarity) of the glyph is determined only by the Glyph Assembling kit (see Assembling kits section above)

The quality of the runes to use is determined by the Glyph Assembling kit (see Assembling kits section above)
QL 1 kits: Base materials
QL 2-3 kits: Imperfect materials
QL 4-6 kits: Normal materials
QL 7-8 kits: Sacred materials
QL 9-10 kits: Pure materials

Runes are divided in offensive and defensive runes.
Offensive Runes
- Denkyem Rune: gives critical damage
- Lu Rune: gives critical rating
- Trinity Rune: gives penetration rating
- Wheel Rune: gives hit rating
Defensive Runes
- Earth Rune: gives block rating
- Koru Rune: gives physical protection
- Pentagram Rune: gives magical protection
- Wedjat Rune: gives defense rating
- Yggdrasil Rune: gives evade rating
Runes can be combined to make glyphs BUT offensive and defensive runes can't be combined in the same glyph.
For example, you can combine Lu and Trinity (offensive), or Earth and Pentagram (defensive) but NOT Earth and Trinity (defensive and offensive)

If you use a 2+2 runes combination (for example 2 Lu and 2 Denkyem), it will create a glyph giving roughly balanced statistics for the effect of each rune (at least what the game considers balanced).

If you use a 3+1 combination, the effect provided by the 3 runes will be the major one.

The name of the glyph seems to be only based on the two kinds of runes used and NOT on the proportions used.
So a 2+2 combination will hve the same named as a 3+1 combination of the same kinds of rules.
But the tooltip of the Glyph will mention “moderate” additions for the two statistics added in the first case, and respectively “major” and “minor” additions in the second case.


To make a glyph:
- Place the 4 runes (4, 2+2, 3+1) of the right type(s) and quality in the grid of the Assemble window
- Form the cross pattern (shape)
- When the pattern is formed, the Tool slot lights up
- Place the Glyph Assembling kit in the Tool slot
- The result is previewed in the result slot, move your mouse above it to see the characteristics
- If all if OK, press the assemble button

Adding a glyph to an item

Glyphs can only be added to items that have a glyph slot open or items that already have a glyph installed. In this case the new glyph will destroy the old one.

There is no way to remove a glyph or signet from a weapon.

If a item with glyph is disassembled, you don't get back the elements used for the glyph.


To add a glyph to an item
- open the Assemble window with the “y” key
- put both the item and the glyph in the assemble grid
- no tools is required
- The result is previewed in the result slot, move your mouse above it to see the characteristics
- If all if OK, press the assemble button

Signets making (?)
Signets are the “suffix” of an item. They drop from hard mobs in specific areas.
So far it doesn't seem signets can be crafted.
They can be added to items if items have a signet slot.
They are added the same way as glyphs are.

Refining Signets:

Signets drop at the Green (uncommon) level from QL10+ mobs (mainly found in lairs, Transylvania and elite/nightmare dungeons) and can be refined via the crafting assembly to the Blue (superior) level and theoretically (haven't farmed enough yet to test) into Purple (epic) level. In order to refine ANY signet you must use the same type of signet.

Green x 10 = Blue x1 (tested)
Blue x 10(?) = Purple x 1 (theorized from current build functionality)
Blue x 5(?) = Purple x 1 (theorized from forum posts regarding signet behavior in beta)




Temporary addition (thanks to SoSerious22):

"Gadgets" (Timed Powerups) making
Gadgets are Timed Powerups or "Trinkets" changing one of your stats for a short duration (like 20 seconds)

Gadgets seem to use the same elements as the "potions" + a gadget toolkit.

Gadget toolkits drops from mobs.

The pattern to make Gadgets is:

Code:

SoSerious22 reports he could make:

Stimulant Health: using 7 "Normal" Water= +250 HP for 20 Seconds, 2 minutes cooldown.

Stimulant Attack Rating: using 7 "Normal" Fire= +45 Attack Rating for 20 Seconds. 2 minute cooldown

Fantastic write up mate! I quite liked it

Chrisax

*blush* Thanks.

Actually I was quite annoyed to see so many people saying the "crafting sucks" mostly because they have not yet understood it.

Of course, crafting could be designed in a totally different way but this one is original and, mainly, very open, especially with the possibility of upgrading material.

Also, and from a selfish point of view, with this FAQ and the six others I posted so far, I tried to answer a lot of questions my orgmates (oooops cabalmates... we're not in Anarchy Online) and other people were asking in-game so I don't get killed anymore by stupidly typing a reply in the middle of mobs.

That said, additional information, corrections, and even proof-reading are VERY welcome!

So far, I have experimented with basic elements and uncovered:

"Normal" Water= +250 HP for 20 Seconds, 2minute cooldown. [Stimulant- Health]
"Normal" Fire= +45 Attack Rating for 20 Seconds. 2 minute cooldown [Stimulant-Attack]

-More to come?-
Hope this helps! great FAQ guide!

I've not been able to test it thus far due to lack of runes but there's been another gadget pattern found out that was mentioned in Raithwood's topic.

Apparently makes a proc-based gadget. Replace T with runes that have the effect you wish to use as the trigger(say critical hits) and E with the effect you wish to be buffed by(say penetration). This will give you a 20 second buff where every critical will give a 4 second pen buff. Said to work with runes and untested with elements. I can state that Fire as trigger and Water as an effect does nothing however. Whenever I get enough runes to have four pure of the same type, I'll see if a Crit = ATK buff one is possible.
They only want you to shout something they feel appropriate when you feel like shouting. They don't care about the package, just the gift wrap. They don't advocate peace. They don't care if you speak with hate. They want only to change the exact words as if the WORDS are what makes discourse hateful or distasteful. They think the avoidance of certain words is gonna signal an education. ~ Penn Jillette
