Gathering / Extracting

Gathering Hi there! Rumor has it that you want to start one of the new crafting classes! A good crafter will always have an abundance of great materials to make items with. The following guide will give you a brief walkthrough on how to gather resources for you and your friends.

Gathering

First and foremost, we are going to need to find the trainers. They can all be found in the Crafting Studio right next to the fishing hole. You can enter this zone by speaking to any of the Fishing Hole Gatekeepers in one of the starting towns.
Here are the names of all the Gatekeepers and their associated towns:

  • Einhoren : Jude
  • Etton : Bruce
  • Montt : Hanz
  • Kaion : Frederick
  • Paralucca : Henry
  • Revecca : Matthew
  • Vena : Peter


Once inside, go to the crafting studio and look for the NPC by the name of olek?

Colek will offer three different gathering professions. Each of the gathering professions have somewhat of a matching crafting profession. However, you may be contacted by different types of crafters for your materials. Below are the suggested gathering professions for each crafting profession.

  • Weaponsmith : Minerals
  • Armorsmith : Minerals
  • Accessory Producer : Gems
  • Magic Tool Producer : Plants


After you have selected a gathering profession, Colek will ask you to do a small quest. The quest will consist of gathering minerals, gems or plants depending on the profession you chose. All of the quest items can be found just outside of the starting towns. They will look like one of the pictures below. You can interact with these by left clicking on them and waiting for the timer bar to finish. Once gathered, they will appear in your inventory. After you have finished gathering the materials, head back to Colek to receive your crafting tool. The tool "MUST" be equipped to gather materials.

      - Special: Strontium

    Processing Resources

    Now you should have a bundle of resources in your bag. What now? Well now you have to get them processed and ready to use for producing. Head to your nearest processor in the crafting studio.



    Step 1:

    Select which item you want processed. In this case, I will be processing Grade E Artrium.

























    Step 2:

    Here you will see the quantity needed to process the item. It says I need (10) Artrium Minerals and (1) Melting stone to create a Grade E Mineral Ingot. Melting Stones and other supplies can be found at the crafting supplier in the crafting studio. Press the tart Processing?button to create the item.
























    Step 3:

    A progression bar will appear at the bottom of your screen. It will take 10 seconds to complete the process. If all goes well, you will create a new item will be placed into your inventory.

    You can repeat this action as many times as you have the materials to do so. Now your resources should be ready to use for producing.




Processing Resources - Rare and Special


You l notice that the Rare and Special resources will have different options when processing. While you can process them into things like Ingots, you can process the Rare resources into Special resources by following the same steps in the previous page.

Special resources cannot be processed into a Rare resource.


Extracting Aside from gathering, there is another essential part when crafting items. Many crafters will need to extract the magical properties from everyday items like weapons, armor, Option Stones and Skill Enhancement Stones. To do this, you will need to use the Extraction Pulverizer located in the Crafting Studio.
Not everything can be broken down and extracted of its magical properties. Below is a list of items that can be extracted and which items they came from.



Crystals Can be extracted from weapons and armor. Only Unique and Ancients can be extracted.



Extraction Option Stones Can be extracted from weapons and Armor. Only Unique and Ancients can be extracted.



Enhancement Crystal Can be extracted from Skill Enhancement Stones.




Option Stone Crystal Can be extracted from Option Stones and Enhancement Stones.



Step 1:

When you are ready to begin extracting, find an Extraction Pulverizer in the Crafting Studio and right click on it.

Once the window appears, click on The Extracting Item button to continue.




Step 2:

When the Item Extraction Window appears, you will see some cogs. Place an item in the slot and hit the Extract button when you are ready.



**NOTE** Keep in mind that once an item is extracted, you will not be able to get it back. Extracting an item is permanent, so make sure you are willing to part with the item.













Extracting - The Final Product

The wheels will spin, and the time bar will increase. When it finishes, an item will be placed in the boxes below. Sometimes, you will get multiple items and they will all appear in those same boxes.



And there you have it! Quite simple once you get the hang of it.
