Is there a guide somewhere that explains the crafting talked about in the game and how to do it or is that still under works? Also not sure if this is a bug or not but I seem to not get any life essence from dismantling stuff.
I don't know of a guide, but the crafting is done by the weaponsmiths and armourers that travel with the band of characters. On random days you get a message that one of them improved another character's equipment. The healer works the same way.
Dismantling gives you essence (I think half) if used on a mutator. Normal equipment just gets dropped, and you get nothing.
Okay so if I understand you correctly then "crafting" is just an RNG based "plus 1" on weapons/armor pretty much? So does having lots of the "crafters" increase the rate at which they get enhanced? Is there a finite limit to upgrades as well?
Also so only dismantling mutators matters? Why not drop trillium from equipment then if that's the case. I get the game is sorta new but no guide explaining anything at all in or out of the game? More explanation would greatly help in the game. Like for example do the "smiths" skills upgrade from level 1 or do they stay that level permanently? I could spend hours of time testing to see if they do or not but since little in the game even gets explanations I figured it would be quicker to simply ask rather than spending days at a fruitless attempt to upgrade the ability if the possibility is not there.
Don't get me wrong the game is great and I enjoy it so far. The graphics (which I never really harp on since games like Project Zomboid show that that should never be a make or break selling point), the kills (love the overdramatic blood sprays), and varies units (some better than others like all games) is all good and for 15 bucks I don't think I wasted money but I do like to understand more about the game I play not to min max but to goof around with random builds. BTW kudos to the person that did the art for the mace wielding guys as they are just creepy and remind me of Pennywise.
Yes the 'crafting' is just improving the quality of items, from +1 up to +5. Yes, having more weapon/armour-smiths in party increases the rate/quality of items.
Good idea with dismantling items, will give it a shot.
The smiths levelup when they improve the quality of item. And if an item is +1, it can be further improved to +2..
With the helping - I agree, we need to put more guides/help to game, thanks.
Thank you for replying. Also is the level of the "crafters" skill just flavor text or can it increase. Would be interesting if you had to use them in battle somehow to upgrade the skill the level 5 to have the max equipment upgrade. However that would also change how they already work so I don't think others would like that.
By level you mean over all character level I assume? The level I'm referring to is the skills level which reads as level 1 and as of yet I can't find a way to increase it. I'm gonna assume that skill can't be leveled yet correct?
Side Note......Is there any plans to recruit the Halador units (sure I'm messing the name up) as I love the design and would love to get them (Pokemon/Final Fantasy?Dragon Quest in me can't help it but want them lol).
