So, once you’ve gathered the materials with tools, what do you do then? You take them to a crafting station. Generally speaking, these are what allow players to turn their raw materials into actual goods. There are four different basic types to get started with, but there are also advanced stations that are helpful later on.
Crafting stations are an important part in crafting when playing Everquest Next Landmark. Mining, harvesting, and creating props could do with a little help from crafting stations.
Using the Crafting Stations
To start, you need to put a claim on the first station. This can be located at the Forge next to the starting point. When you have successfully claimed it, you then start crafting.
Place a claim on the crafting station by right clicking on it and placing it on your claim. Using it will rquire you hovering your mouse over it, waiting until the cursor becomes a pair of pliers, and left clicking on it. Alternatively, you can also right click, a menu will appear and you then click on the craft.
The crafting station will then show you the crafting interface together with a number of recipes, which are already categorized. Click a category to open. Click on an item and it will show you the requirements needed to craft it.
At the moment, crafting stations are publicly available. This means you can get to use other gamers’ crafting stations in the same way that they can also use yours.
This station will allow players to turn their ore into ingots and forge items such as better tools. The making of ingots out of raw metals are usually done in Forges. Other items created include mining and harvesting tools, building tools , reinforced saws, props for claims and other accessories.
Forges are further categorized into:
- Stone Forge – most basic forge, can be found at the starting point of each map.
- Marble Forge – the second tier forge, allows you to craft more advanced items.
- Amaranthine Forge – the best forge you can craft at the moment.
- Alabaster Forge – requires Mithril in order to be crafted (Mithril is not available in game yet.)
The Alchemy Station will let players turn their gathered wood and plants into things such as potions and elixirs for personal use or even infuse them with stronger properties to be used as sub-components at other stations.
This station allows for the creation of clothing, accessories, and woven cloth.
There are many things to do at the workshop, such as building other types of crafting stations or refining raw material to be used in prop building. In addition to that, the Tinkerer’s Workshop is also where players will build claim flags to expand their territory and the station will even allow certain tools to be made, such as grappling hooks.
Any of these crafting stations are very easy to use, simply mouse over them and left click to bring up the different categories and recipes. If the player has enough raw materials to craft a certain item, the user interface will show how many they’ll be able to make.
In addition to these basic types of crafting stations, there are also advanced ones to use once you start getting a bunch of material coming in. These are called Refining stations and will be more efficient at refining gathered materials into different crafting components and sub-components, but they do not actually replace the basic crafting tables. They’re only meant to become more efficient.
Refining stations allow for the mass production of sub-components all at once while also giving bigger yields, which makes it a great way to save time while crafting and even while out gathering raw materials. The trade off for using these more advanced stations is that they’ll use much larger quantities of a certain type of material. As an example: making a copper ingot at a Stone Forge requires 100 copper ores. At a Superior Smelter, you’ll need 1,000 copper ores, but it’ll grant 11 ingots rather than just 10.
Each Refining Table will be marked with a prefix that’ll let the player know just how much more efficient they are. Superior is +10%, Exceptional is +20%, and Legendary is +30%.
There are five types of Refining Stations:
These are similar to Alchemy Stations and deals with wood and plants.
A loom is similar to an Outfitter Table and is used for making cloth textiles.
This type of Refining Station is similar to Tinkerer’s Workshops and will turn logs into planks much more efficiently. Wood logs are turned into wood planks with the use of saws. They are used to process wood, craft sifters and workbenches, and other props for your claim.
The types of saws are as follows:
- Copper Reinforced Saw Table – first reinforced saw available to craft, allows you to turn wood logs into wood planks.
- Tungsten Reinforced Saw Table – second reinforced saw, allows you to craft better work benches needed in processing marble.
- Cobalt Reinforced Saw Table – allows you to craft even more advanced work benches needed in processes higher-level stone.
These are similar to Stone or Tech Forges. They deal with turning ores to ingots.
This Refining Station will allow sand, stone, or dirt to be turned into minerals and ore. Sifters are useful in dumping surplus stone, sand or dirt that are collecting in your bag. They don’t have much use in addition to that, as they are not also needed in crafting.
2 types of sifters are as follows:
- Roughwork Sifter – basic sifter, for 3000 sand, stone or dirt you get 4 or 5 tier 1 gems or ore.
- Tradesman’s Sifter – more advanced sifter, for 5000 sand, stone or dirt you can get 4 or 5 tier 1 or tier 2 gems or ore.
