Icon WIP Work in Progress
This article is currently being created or worked on, and should be finished within the next few days. Please do not add any sections or make any major edits. You may fix small errors if you encounter them, but always expect the finished article to be at least a little different from the one you're looking at. Thank you for your patience.

Crafting denotes the process of creating Magical Items with the Icon Arcane.pngArcane spells Icon Arcane.pngEnchant Item and Icon Arcane.pngCreate Artifact. Items include Weapons (Sword, Mace, Axe, Bow, Wand, Staff), Armor (Platemail, Chainmail, Shield), and Jewelry.

Magical Items increase the attributes of Heroes - sometimes even granting new Powers. With any Item Crafting, you may only select up to 4 bonuses for a single item.

Item Slots Edit

A Hero can carry no more than three items at once, and these have to correspond with the slots available on that hero:

Each Hero can carry at least one Weapon and at least one Jewelry. If the hero can equip a Sword, then he or she will have an Armor slot - otherwise a second Jewelry slot.

"Jewelry" is a blanket for the more cumbersome term "Miscellaneous Accessory." While Miscellaneous items can take various forms— battle helmets, rings, cloaks, amulets, mystical orbs, gauntlets— the differences between these items are purely aesthetic.

Base Costs of Artifacts Edit

Artifact Cost Bonus Effect
Sword, Mace, Axe, Bow Icon Mana.png 100
Shield Icon Mana.png 100 Large Shield
Chain Mail Icon Mana.png 100 Icon Defense.png +1
Wand Icon Mana.png 200
Staff Icon Mana.png 300
Plate Mail Icon Mana.png 300 Icon Defense.png +2
Jewelry Icon Mana.png 50 Double Non-Spell Costs

Note that the initial defense bonus of Chainmails and Platemails is only available through Item Crafting; they are not applied to pregenerated items. This is probably a bug, as the cost modifier still applies.

Non Spell Maximums Edit

Cost for Non Spell Effects Edit

Note that effects cost double for Jewelry and have stricter limits. You can also reduce the cost by 50% from Artificer and 25% from Runemaster (These stack additively for a 75% reduction in cost).

Only effects that cost Icon Mana.png 200 or less can be used with Icon Arcane.pngEnchant Item. This restriction is also true for the following Spell Effects (Item Powers).

Spell Effects and Costs Edit

Note that only 12 Spell Effects will fit in the normal sized selection area before causing graphical errors. This will almost never be a problem, but if you manage to get more than 12 effects avaliable due to a mix of careful planning and acquisition of additional book retorts, only 15 total will be selectable. Quite a few spell effects are only avaliable in the catagory of Jewelry, so you're not likely to have any issues besides in Jewelry if this happens.
