- Armoring is a Crafting Profession
- Maximum Level 200
- With Armorsmithing you make armor from cloth, leather (at the Outfitting Station) and metal (at the Forge)
- You can craft bags for more bag space.
- With the help of Azoth and Special Resources you determine the value of the items
- Buildings: Outfitting Station Tier 2-5, Forge Tier 2-5
Leveling Armoring from 1-200
For each item you craft you get experience. For items that are available from Skill Level 0, you’ll get significantly fewer experience points compared to an item that is unlocked at Level 150. Theoretically you can increase your Skill Level with every item. But beware: The cheapest material is not always the cheapest solution!
You can start crafting various armor sets made of metal, cloth and leather right from the beginning at Level 0. All metal armor is made at the Forge. For cloth and leather you need the Outfitting Station as a building.
Since you can get these materials very easily by farming or buying them at the trading post, you can level up your profession quite quick. Even if you can make better armor with a higher level, it usually makes more sense to stay on the Tier 2 Armor because the required materials are much cheaper.
You should try to sell some of the weapons and salvage the rest (here you can see how!), as this will give you materials to build more items.
For all three sets, you’ll need the fewest materials when crafting gloves. Of the three armor types, cloth is usually the cheapest option. However, if you have a lot of leather and ores through farming, it makes sense to craft leather or plate gloves.
Perks and Special Resources
Effects are random in low chance crafting unless you add a special raw material.
By default, you always have a small chance of an effect, this chance can be increased by Azoth. With an effect the quality of the item changes.
With these special resources you can determine attributes like strength, dexterity, buffs against NPCs, etc. You can buy these effects from other players at the trading post or collect them yourself from enemies or chests.
If you have Azoth, I recommend you use it for crafting, because the higher the quality level (Common, Untypical, Rare, etc.) the more valuable the armor is at the trading post.
Increase chances for Perks with Azoth
Azoth is a special resource on Aeternum because it can be obtained and used in many ways. You will be rewarded with Azoth for certain tasks or you can mine it from nature with the right effect.
It is used for fast travel through Aeternum but also for crafting items.
By default, most items have only a low chance of gaining attributes, effects, and gem slots. With the addition of Azoth, they have a high chance.
You should therefore always use Azoth when crafting if possible, as your item will become much more valuable and efficient with effects and sockets.
When you use better materials to craft items, the armor value increases and you can use more Azoth.
The more effects you have on your item, the higher its quality level (Common, Untypical, Rare, etc.) will be.
Gear Score – Primary and Secondary Materials
There is also the possibility to use more expensive materials for the production. For example, if you don’t have rough leather, but coarse leather, you can click on the leather and remove the checkmark from the “Owned Items” box.
Now you can see which materials you can use.
The rank and rarity of the primary material determines the rank as well as the armor value of the manufactured item. For example, if you use an atypical material instead of a common one, the item becomes at least atypical.
The rank and rarity of the secondary materials affect the Gear Score of the crafted item. As mentioned above, a higher value allows you to use more Azoth.
