Equipment crafting and enchanting is a core feature of the Limitless Character Customization found in Realm of Strife. Careful planning and the application of the correct craftings and enchants for the situation can vastly increase the survivability, utility, and/or damage potential of your character.
Crafting refers to the creation and/or manufacturing of weapons, armor, and other items, either by PCs (using associated Secondary Skills) or NPCs (via Shops and Equipment Vendors). In many cases this adds some kind of additional effects, properties, or modifiers to the equipment.
Craftings are represented by a ‘Prefix’ before the item name (i.e. Dwarven Plate Bracers or Angelic Arming Sword). These prefixes can only be added at the time that the equipment is initial crafted.
Crafting is divided into several different categories:
- Primitive or Simple Crafting (Rank 0 Crafting)
- Standard Crafting & Repairing (Rank 1 Crafting)
- Advanced Crafting (Rank 2-4 Crafting)
- Rune Crafting (Rank 2-4 Crafting)
- Dragonscale Crafting (Rank 5 Crafting)
Enchanting refers to the application of magical or supernatural properties to existing weapons, armor, or other items, either by PCs (using associated Secondary Skills) or NPCs (via Shops and Equipment Vendors). Enchanting ALWAYS results in granting additional effects, properties, or modifiers to the equipment
Enchants are represented by a ‘Suffix’ after the item name, which includes an indicator of rank of the enchant (i.e. Plate Bracers of Improved Petrification or Arming Sword of Greater Striking). These suffixes can be added at any time, provided that the equipment does not already possess one.
