Book 10 Crafting Summary

  • Changes to One-shot Recipe Scrolls
    • New one-shot recipes are identical to the existing one-shot recipes in every way, except use different rare required ingredients than the old recipes.
    • Old one-shot recipes continue to exist, however they can no longer be found in treasure. Every one of the old rare required ingredients used in these old recipes can still be found on the creatures that have always dropped them.
    • The new rare ingredients needed for the new one-shot recipes can be found on a variety of unique creatures (as opposed to just one named creature). The new rare ingredients have a 100% drop rate.
    • Changed the display names for all pre-existing one-shot recipe scrolls to include the word "(Old)," to help differentiate between existing and new one-shot recipe scrolls.
  • Increased 'Effective Level' of Crafted Weapons, Armor, Jewellery
    • Increased the effective level (or power level) of most tier 2 - tier 5 crafted armor, weapons, and jewellery pieces.
    • Minimum level requirements remain the same, effectively providing a boost to the stats of crafted gear
