    Blacksmithing/Crafting Leveling Guide


    Combining Core Metals and Elemental Metals
    Need to have at least 10% Core Metal except for Rock Metal and Air Ore.  MUST have at least 1 Physical Damage remaining (ex. Start with 9 Physical Damage, the max you can change is to 1 Physical and 8 Elemental.  So you use 80% Elemental Ore vs. Core Metal.  

    If you have 50% of an Elemental Metal it causes a Damage-Over-Time effect, type dependent on which Ore, i.e. Burn, Frost Bite, etc.

    For every 10% Elemental Metal you have, you lose 5% of your Weapon/Armor Rating, making it so the more Elemental Metal you have the more brittle it is and easier to break.

    Combining Different Types of Core Metals Together:
    If you mix two metals together through smelting and create something new: for Armor, you roll a 20 sided die.  
    Rolls equal:

    1-6 you failed to mix it properly and your ratios (blunt, pierce, slash, fire, water, etc.) are closer to the lower level metal: take the difference between the 2 Metals' ratios (all of them) and divide it by 4 (rounded to the nearest whole number) and that is your new ratio number: Example, 15:1 Iridium Blunt ratio... 15 divided by 4 = 3.75 rounded up to 4... your new Blunt ratio is 4:1.

    7-13.  You mixed it evenly and diluted both metals equally.  Take your higher level metal and divide it by 2 rounded to the nearest whole number and that is your new ratio. Example, 15:1 Iridium Blunt ratio... 15 divided by 2 = 7.5 rounded up to 8... your new Blunt ratio is 8:1

    14-19.  You mixed them well and your higher level metal is more potent, slightly overpowering your lower level metal.  Take your higher level metal and times it by 0.75 (or divide it by 4 but times that number by 3) and round to the nearest whole number.  Example Iridium Blunt ratio is 15:1 X 0.75 =  11.25 rounded to 11... your new Blunt ratio is 11:1

    20.  You mixed it to its full potency, now you have the highest ratios of both types of metals (whichever has a higher ratio is the one you get, but if something has an Elemental ratio that the other doesn't, you get that too)


    Adding on/Reinforcing with another Metal:
    Take the highest ratios from both/all metals, and that is what you have, Example: Iridium has high Slash and stuff but you add on a plating of Platinum for the Elemental Ratio bonuses.

    Fixing a break:
    Say you have a really good armor made out of Iridium.  It breaks and is no longer usable.  You need to fix it but don't have anymore Iridium.  So you fix it with Iron because it was the only thing you had.  Now you take your original ratio for all of them (lets go with Blunt for now)... it's a 15:1 ratio, and Iron is 1:1, take the difference between the two (14) and cut that in half rounded to the next whole number (7)... now minus the 7 off of the 15:1.  so 8:1 is now your ratio for blunt.  

    Your armor is severely weakened because you used an inferior metal to fix it up... but the opposite happens if you repair it with a superior metal, take the different and cut it in half and add it to your original ratio.


    Rules

    For Armor, we created a system to increase its defense (physical or magical) so no one could or would wonder what to do when they got better materials or whatnot.  

    First, even if you’re starting with a higher level armor material… make a template with a Basic Iron/Cow leather/Cotton value… you can create it as “Physical Defense: 3 Basic Cow Leather +2 for Wolf and +3 for Torso = 8 X half its weight (2lb=X1) = 8”… if you want, that way you wouldn’t have to make 2 different templates, but you need a starting point so that these numbers can correspond correctly (all the metals and leathers and cloths have a +4, +5, etc. that are over Iron/Cow Leather/Cotton, so if you don’t know what that number is, it makes it hard to improve upon it).  

    Anyways, on to the system – All armors are multiplied by half their weight to get a boost once you make something past Iron/Cow Leather/Cotton.  This way those three materials are pretty crappy… and you should want to improve them quickly, you’d be surprised how much a boost they get once you multiply by half the weight.

    – For armor pieces that go onto the Hand, Foot, Head, or Neck, you do not get a ‘Body Part Bonus’, so it is the Base Resistance + anything for a higher material X half its weight

    -For armor pieces that go onto the Forearm, Upper Arm, and Calf, you get a ‘Body Part Bonus’ of +1, so add that and any higher materials bonus points to your base defense and X that by half its weight

    - For armor pieces that go onto the Thigh, you get a ‘Body Part Bonus’ of + 2, so add that and any higher material bonus points to your base defense and X that by half its weight

    - For armor that covers a majority of lower body (pants/shorts) or any part or all of your torso (full shirts, robes, dresses, etc.), you get a ‘Body Part Bonus’ of +3, so add that and any higher material bonus points to your base Defense and X that by half its weight

    Ex. Wolf Leather – in the Common Uncommon Animal Class, Numbers correspond to Physical Resistance
    - hand armor = 1(original template)+2(wolf) =3 X half of 1lb (.5 rounded back up to 1) = 3
    - forearm = 4(original template)+2(wolf)=6 +1(body part bonus) =7 X half of 4lb (making it 2) = 14
    - Thigh = 7(original template)+2(wolf) = 9 + 2(body part bonus) = 11 X half of 7lb (making it 3.5 rounded up to 4)= 44
    - pants = 10(original template)+2(wolf)=12 +3(body part bonus) = 15 X half of 14lb (making it 7)= 105

    For weapons, you add in the bonus points for the better material, but: if it is 1lb or less, that's the only points you add, and for every additional lb your weapon is, you increase 1 point of damage.


    Iron will only give you training points up until level 35, after than all materials will only give you points for working them for 15 points, so make sure you use newer materials when you get them.


    For weapons and armor doing 1-10 Damage or Resistance:  For every 10% of Elemental Metal, you take 1 point of damage or resistance away from physical and move it to an Elemental.  

    For weapons and armor doing 11-20 Damage or Resistance:  For every 10% of Elemental Metal, you take 2 points of damage or resistance away from physical and move it to an Elemental.
    Etc. Etc.


    Core Metal
    These ores do not have a special characteristic in them and have no magical resistances.  With these, a Blacksmith can create weapons and armor.  Additional Elemental Ore can be added to create a special effect.  Elemental Metals need to be alloyed with a Core Metal to become worth using in armors and weapons.  The higher the ratio of Elemental Metal vs. Core Metal, you get high magic damage or resistance but it becomes more brittle.

    Iron – Most basic metal found about everywhere.  It sells for 25 gold a pound.  Gear made from this is common.  Can be alloyed with other things to make stronger weapons and armor for low ranks.

    Material: Iron
    Upgrade Uses: Can be used for increasing mass/durability to weapons and armor

    Blunt  1:1
    Pierce 2:1
    Slash 3:1


    Common Ore – Gold, Silver, and Hematite – Metals stronger then iron.  Normally not in high demand.  They sell for 50 gold per pound.  Gold absorbs more blunt kinetic damage than cutting damage and is used in jewelry.  

    Material: Gold
    Upgrade Uses: Used to increase a weapon's mass; it is very dense and adds to weapons blunt damage.  When used with armors with Ward abilities, Gold increases Ward abilities by 50%.  Softens impact in armors, adds to blunt resistance.
    armor-
    per pound durability: +1
    blunt res: +4
    slash res: +1
    pierce res: +1
    Ward (X armor's required level): 5 per level when made out of pure gold, upgrading another armor with gold = +50% of it's original Ward.  No true Ward to lightning, for lightning Ward you would need to put with a naturally lightning resistant armor

    weapons-
    per pound durability: +1
    per pound blunt damage: +4
    Sharpening: pierce damage gain/durability lost per pound: will dull on first strike, first strike has +1/-4, after that, 0/-4

    Classes of Animals and Monsters that determine when you can get the metal:

    Common Animal:
    Mostly herbivore creatures you would commonly know. Fish and small sea critters, deer, common horse. Most common creatures will not be put in the beatisarty unless they are high level ones to keep the clutter and the list down.

    Uncommon Animal:
    Normal (not magical) carnivors like wolfs and bears, foxes would be under this as well.

    Rare Animal:
    Giant spiders, non-magical creatures you wouldn’t normally see unless you're in an area that could house them.

    Unique Animal:
    Albino animals and Rare creatures with often minor magical abilities.  Often will be localized around specific areas

    Rare Unique Creature:
    Low level monsters and Magical Creatures that are localized by continents. Unicorns and alicorns for example.

    Mini Boss:
    Mini bosses are often tough creatures know to be aggressive. But are likely to chase you down.  Typically monsters between levels 7-45

    Common Boss:
    Just short of being a real boss these creatures are large in population sizes meaning running in to one you might stumble upon a whole pack or village of them.  Most will often follow you.  Typically monsters between levels 10-50

    Boss:
    Boss creatures aren't always the strongest in health or raw strength but some are classified as this for most of them have one hit killing attacks. Boss creatures are also sly and will often run from battles they don't feel they can win making hunting them down a tricky job, as some will run off and heal themselves. Typically monsters between levels 15-60

    Epic Boss:
    These creatures or people are often a plot changing creature or in some cases so powerful they take a very long time to kill. They will often run after a certain amount of damage is dealt to them making people have to track them down again.  Typically monsters between levels 25-100


    Dragon Bone – A very interesting metal.  Looks a lot like bone but it’s not.  It’s a metal that made a blade able to cut dragon scale rather easily.  Any blacksmith would gladly make a fine weapon edges with this stuff if you allow them to keep the left over.  It’s durable and is for higher ranking weapons.  It sells for 2500 a pound. Mostly found in the land of dragons, but anywhere else most of the mines it’s found in require a rite of passage to get in.

    Iridium – Very hard and dense metal, yellowish hue over silver color.  The most sought after metal found in The 8th Continent due to it's high level.  Sells for 10000 per pound.  Very hard to find this ore, it is scattered around in small amounts and some animals eat it.  Can be found on some Monsters and would count as Iridium instead of Monster Metal.

    Rare Space Ore – This is not mined, but found.  Find just a scrap of this metal and you become the talk of the area.  The durability of weapons or armor made these metals is unheard of.  It’s a Blacksmith’s dream to even tinker with a pound.  Sells for a whopping 10,000 gold a pound.  Admins control where this Ore is found.

    Elemental Metals
    There are cases of metals taking on the element of the land.  They are lesser versions of the metals of legend.  The natives of each of the lands where the ore can be found often guard it because most weapons will get a magical damage base.  Any armor made from these metals will get a bit of resistance to a specific magic damage.  These metals need to be alloyed with a core metal to become worth using in armors and weapons.  The higher the ratio of Elemental Metal vs. Core Metal, you get high magic damage or resistance but it is rather brittle.  

    The Blunt, Pierce, and Slash ratios are Blank because the creation will take those ratios from the Core Metal it is created with... except Rock which is the only Elemental Metal that can be made of 100%... that ratio will be shown further down

    Fire Metals – Fire metal is always hot.  Armor made from it needs to be alloyed with other metals to keep from burning the wearer.  Weapons that use this get burning/fire damage. Sells for 1000g per pound.  

    If you have 50% Fire Metal vs. Core Metal, you do a Burn Damage-Over-Time.  Your Percent of Element is how many posts of duration it is (10% core, 90% Elemental = 9 post duration).  The damage is dependent on original weapon damage (1-10 damage = 1 point, 11-20 damage = 2 points, etc., etc.)  

    Your Fire Metal armor will cancel out Frost Bite effect dependent on percentages.  If your armor is 50% Fire metal, and their weapon is 60% Water Ore, their Frost Bite will only last 1 post.  For every 10% more Water Ore they have, it will last 1 post more.

    Rock Metals – Used mostly for armors because the metal is very heavy yet resistant to damage.  The weapons/armor made from this get a massive Weapon/Armor Rating boost but also cost more stamina.  This metal is often combined with Air Ore in order to make it less heavy.  Sells for 1000g per pound.  

    For every 10% of Rock Metal vs. Core Metal, your weapon/armor's Weapon/Armor Rating increases by 15% (but you lose 5% Weapon/Armor rating for every 10% Elemental vs Core so it equals out to 10%), but it increases weight by 10 pounds and costs an additional 1 Energy to use (weapon).  You can have a weapon/armor 100% Rock Metal, but it will weigh 100 pounds more than original.

    At 50% Rock Metal your weapons get a change of Stunning your target.  At 50% it is a 10% Stun, 60% is a 20% Stun, 70% is a 40% Stun, 80% is a 60% Stun, 90% is a 80% Stun, 100% is a 100% Stun.  Stun lasts 1 post.

    Air Ore – Oddly named metal because it’s extremely light and sharp but is very easy to dull quickly.  Most heavy armors use this metal to rivet pieces together to make it lighter.  Sells for 1000g per pound.

    Every 10% lightens armor and weapons by 5 pounds, minimum weight of 1 pound.
    At 50% Air Ore vs Core Metal, you get a Bleeding Damage-Over-Time.  Your Percent of Element is how many posts of duration it is (10% core, 90% Elemental = 9 post duration).  The damage is dependent on original weapon damage (1-10 damage = 1 point, 11-20 damage = 2 points, etc., etc.).  If you slash the Throat or thrust into heart, it does Triple Bleeding Damage.  Hitting the armpit, groin, and Back-of-the-Knee areas are Double Bleeding Damage.

    At 50% Air Ore vs. Core Metal, for every 10% (starting at 50%), you get a 2 point increase in Agility.  50% gives you 2 points, 60% gives you 4 points, 70% gives you 6 points, 80% gives you 8 points, 90% gives you 10 points.

    Water Ore – Much like Air Ore it is light but it’s known for its clear watery blue look.  Even though it’s called water, it boosts ice and water resistance for armors and frost bite for weapons.  Sells for 1000g per pound.  

    If you have 50% Water Ore vs. Core Metal, you do a Frostbite Damage-Over-Time.  Your Percent of Element is how many posts of duration it is (10% core, 90% Elemental = 9 post duration).  The damage is dependent on original weapon damage (1-10 damage = 1 point, 11-20 damage = 2 points, etc., etc.)

    Your Water Ore armor will cancel out Burn effect dependent on percentages.  If your armor is 50% Water Ore, and their weapon is 60% Fire Metal, their Burn will only last 1 post.  For every 10% more Fire Metal they have compared to your Water Ore, it will last 1 post more.

    Black Steel – This Ore is black as night and very beautiful.  It is known best as a metal that inflicts silence on people.  But it’s also been known to even boost magic damage of other Element Ores in weapons and boost resistance of armor from magic.  Sells for 1000g per pound.  

    If you have 50% Black Steel vs. Core Metal, you have a 10% chance to cast Silence on your opponent.  For every additional 10% Black Steel above that, you get another 10% chance to Silence.  Silence is a 3 post duration of inability to cast magic.  

    For every 10% Black Steel in addition to another Elemental Ore, it boosts the other Elemental Ore’s power, making it seem 20% higher (Rock is at 20%, but add 10% Black and it makes Rock 40%, Rock is at 50% but add 20% Black and it makes Rock 90% power), both for armor and weapons

    Light Ore – This isn’t a metal but crystal.  It actually heals much like healing magic, but getting your hands on its like meeting a dragon in person on a nice day.  When used in weapons reduces your Stamina usage making it feel like you can fight all day but in armors it will heal a small amount of health over time.  This ore is rarely used in armor as it’s very brittle to even the most skilled blacksmith.  Sells for 1000g per pound.   Need to have at least 30% Core Metal or other Elemental Metals (no more than 70% Light Ore) for armor and weapons.  For every 10% Light Ore, your Weapon Rating is decreased by 5% (10% if you include the already -5% for it being an Elemental Ore)

    In weapons, once you reach 50% Light Ore, you get 2 points of Stamina usage reduction only for that weapon.  For ever additional 10% Light Ore you get an additional 2 points of Stamina reduction.

    In armor, once you reach 50% Light Ore, you gain a Minor Health Regeneration of 5 points per post.  For every 10% more you get another 5 points regeneration per post.

    Lightning Crystal – This is Lightning actually crystalized.   Its uses are so wide ranged it’s not often used in weapons or armor. This is the most common mining mineral to see growing naturally but is extremely hard to mine.  Sells for 1000g per pound.

    When you reach 50% Lightning Crystal vs. Core Metals  your weapons get a change of Stunning your target.  At 50% it is a 10% Stun, 60% is a 20% Stun, 70% is a 40% Stun, 80% is a 60% Stun, 90% is a 80% Stun.  Stun lasts 2 post.
    At 50% Lightning Crystal vs. Core Metal, you get a boost of 5 points to Agility.  For every 10% after that, you get 2 more points of Agility.
