Crafter Career Guide
Crafter is classified as an Intermediate career, because it depends on raw materials from Explorers and Warriors. It provides Reagents to Tailors; Equipment for Warriors; and mini-pets and Keepsakes for collection. They are also instrumental in some events!
Your villager starts with an empty screen. Crafters need to learn Recipes in order to work. A villager can learn any recipe from any village or source.
Costume related Blueprints for your village can be found in your village's shop . You have to dip into User Stalls or the Item Sales forum to pick up outside Blueprints. All Blueprints cost 75-125 FC in their respective village shops.
There are some unaffiliated costume parts whose Blueprints are found in all of the villages' crafter shops or at The Fair Exchange.
Mechanical pet related Blueprints are split between Warrior Loot and the Quest Shop.
The Fair Exchange, Recycling Shop, Tourney Shop, Cottage Shop, and dropped as Loot.
Crystal Templates are found in the Recycling Shop.
Socket-o-Matic Order Forms are found in The Fair Exchange.
Keepsake Recipes are available in the Recycling Shop, Ye Olde Makeables (OFB's crafter shop), and the Quest Shop.
Once you have your desired recipes, head into your Inventory to teach them to your villager.
Crafting a recipe is as simple as clicking on it and waiting for the allotted time.
Applying one of five costumes decreases crafting time by 30%. Eating a Dragonsmaw Pie can apply a random costume buff.
Outfits and Keepsakes can also decrease crafting time if they are Buffed for this career. Each villager can equip up to 6 of each.
Crafters can use a recipe as many times as they'd like once they have learned it. If you would like your villager to forget a recipe, the Unlearn option is available in the bottom left corner of every recipe window.
Each time your villager crafts a recipe, they gain one Skill point. Skill level affects crafted Equipment. Every time they earn an achievement trophy, your villager will have an increased chance to produce Equipment of better Potency, as well as increased chances for Sockets.
These finished pieces from your Crafter are required by Tailors (and Cooks) to make Costumes.
