From Crea Wiki
In Crea the majority of items are obtained through crafting them. Crafting is a simple process but in order to craft an item you first must obtain that item’s recipe. There are several means to acquiring recipes: monster loot; treasure chests; quests; and, most importantly, the Researcher NPC. There is a limit on the recipes you can research based off of your craft level.
After obtaining an item recipe, you must obtain the materials needed to craft the item. Additionally, many items will require you to be near “ crafting surfaces” such as an Workstation or Forge. To make the process of crafting easier, materials in nearby containers will be accessible during crafting. This means you can stash all of your ingots in a treasure chest next to your Forge. As long as the item is in a storage container nearby, the required item does not have to be in your inventory.
On the crafting tab in your talent page (default 'T') is a list of skills used in crafting. These can be used to influence the Chaos process and mitigate condition or triggers. Using your skills in response to the changing conditions and quality progress is the art/science part of crafting. Luck plays a role in the ultimate quality of your crafted item. Your crafting experience, level of recipe, and skills affects the initial quality of the item you're crafting.
- Expertise: Increases a crafted item’s potential maximum quality.
- Innovate: Increase s ability to research higher level recipes.
- Scrap Master: Research has an increased chance to yield an additional scrap piece.
- Catalyst Research: Adds additional catalysts count during crafting.
- Material Master: Gain an additional % to craft’s initial quality.
Chaos crafting is a mini-game that gives you a chance to roll armor and weapons with extra stats. The object of the game is to use various crafting talents to maximize the quality and keep the chaos as low as possible.
- Polish- ???
- Delay- ???
- Convert Chaos- ???
- Combat Chaos- ???
- Magnify- ???
- Modify Catalyst- ???
- Sharpen- ???
- Refine- ???
- Postpone- ???
- Recourse- ???
- Attach as many tools to your crafting stations as you can find. Pick the right tools on the workstation before beginning your crafting session.
- Use catalysts for higher level items to help in reducing the bad luck factor in getting back to back bad trigger effects. Don’t forget to craft some catalysts from your way crystals before starting to craft an important item.
- Use the crafting of ingots to test the various skills and timing vs. the trigger effects. Learn the combos that avoid or minimize bad effects and maximize good ones.
- Use ‘chaos’ button for ores and gems, ore will return 1-3 extra ingots and you can get double the gems for your efforts.
- Use ‘chaos’ button for wood will produce better quality lumber.
- Take your time and look at the 'Next Trigger' value to see what's coming and plan to counter act or take advantage of the new condition.
- Put some large chests near each of your crafting stations and put those items most used for that station in them. Then you won't have to carry all the items in your inventory to craft.
- Fill these chests full with items, then you can use the Deposit button and it will only put in things that are already there, leaving your adventure supplies in your inventory. There is a Stack button and this only puts items in the chest that's already there, however, it will put all of the stacks in your bag if there's room.
- Balance mitigation of bad conditions with advancing quality. The more triggers that have passed increase the Chaos per step penalty for each subsequent skill used.
Crafting surfaces have upgrades that can be found in loot chests and there is a limit of 5 per station.
