Crafting material

(Redirected from Crafting materials)
Jump to: navigation, search

A crafting material is an item used for crafting; they can be acquired through gathering, looting, salvaging, or purchased from vendors. The term also includes certain crafted items, such as refined materials (e.g. Bronze Ingots).

Acquiring crafting materials[edit]

A player attempting to gather from a resource node.

There are several different ways you can obtain crafting materials:

  • Gathering — Resource nodes are found randomly around the world. Ore veins are mined with picks, trees are logged with axes, and other plants are harvested with sickles.
  • Looting — You have a chance of finding appropriate crafting materials such as hides or trophies when you loot slain enemies.
  • Purchasing — Some specialist merchants sell ingredients.
  • Salvaging — Available from merchants, salvage kits allow you to salvage crafting materials out of old or unwanted items.
  • Crafting — Some materials are acquired by crafting them from other raw materials.
  • Other players — You can find other players to trade for materials or buy them from the Trading Post.

Storage[edit]

Most crafting materials can be stored in your account's shared Material Storage using one of three methods:

  • By using the inventory window's "Deposit All Materials" option; this transfers all materials except those located in an invisible bag.
  • By right-clicking the individual item and choosing "Deposit Material."
  • While at a bank or using a crafting station's material storage tab, drag the item from inventory to material storage (or double-click it).

To retrieve the items, you must be at a bank or crafting station.

Some items traditionally considered to be crafting materials cannot be stored in the Material Storage tab, such as Mystic Crystals and other specialty items (e.g. Feldspar Cores). Intermediary crafting items, such as components, also cannot be stored here.

List of crafting materials[edit]

Basic crafting materials[edit]

Basic crafting materials are the items used to create every other item through crafting by being made into components such as Longbow Staves, Axe Blades, Focus Cores, etc.

  • Scraps, ores, leather sections, and logs are the raw materials that are commonly found through looting, salvaging, or harvesting.
  • Bolts, ingots, leather squares, and planks are refined materials that are produced at a crafting station from raw materials.
  • Spools of thread can currently only be acquired by purchase through vendors found at the crafting stations (usually a Master or Apprentice of that crafting discipline) and are used to make Embroidered Insignia and various armor components.
  • Alloying lumps are materials that are also only available through purchase from crafting station vendors. They are used, together with another ore, to make alloys such as Bronze, Steel, and Darksteel that are then used in crafting various weapons, armors, and storage boxes.
  • Miscellaneous items, such as flax seeds, lumps of glass, and dye pigments.

Most tiered advanced crafting materials can be promoted to higher tiers (at a 2:1 ratio) in the Mystic Forge using Dust, Crystals, and either Bottles of Elonian Wine or Mystic Binding Agents.

Mists Essences can be promoted to higher tiers (at a 5:1 ratio) in the Mystic Forge using a Mystic Coin, Glob of Ectoplasm, and Pile of Crystalline Dust. They can also be demoted to lower tiers (at a 1:3 ratio) by substituting a Master's Salvage Kit (with full uses remaining) for the ectoplasm.

Resonating materials can be promoted to higher tiers (at a 3:1 ratio) by Scribes. They may also be demoted to lower tiers (at a 1:3 ratio) via salvaging.

Ascended crafting materials[edit]

Ascended crafting materials (also referred to as tier 7 materials) are crafting materials used for crafting ascended equipment. All ascended materials are of ascended quality. The materials are refined from basic crafting materials, correlating to metal, wood, leather, or cloth. Recipes related to these materials start at crafting level 450 to the maximum of 500.

Ectoplasm Refinement

Basic crafting materials can be refined into ascended crafting materials in two steps to create metal, wood, leather, or cloth required for ascended equipment. The recipes to create the raw ascended material are categorized as ectoplasm refinement, requiring the tier 5 basic crafting material. The name comes from the requirement of Glob of Ectoplasm in the recipe. It's important to note the step 1 related materials are time gated and resets daily. These materials can also be traded on the Trading Post, unlike other ascended materials. The purpose of the time gate and availability on the Trading Post is to create a demand in the economy. The refinement step requires tier 2, 3, and 4 basic crafting materials and the raw material for the related type of material obtained from ectoplasm refinement.
