Book 8 Crit Items Changes



Crit Items Changes Book 8

by Hothgaren

  • Optional ingredients for many recipes were previously dropped by specific monsters in specific areas, which often led to difficulty imbalances between obtaining the ingredients for the different crafting professions. Additionally, many of these items merely stated, "This item can be used in crafting." This vagueness did little to help players identify which optional ingredients were useful to which professions (and at what tiers). I am happy to say that those days are behind us!
  • New optional ingredients have been added for the Cooking, Jeweller, Metalsmith, Scholar, Tailor, Weaponsmith, and Woodworker professions. These new optional ingredients replace the old optional ingredients, which can no longer be found in treasure or used in recipes. A new Trophy Broker NPC, located in Michel Delving, will exchange any old optional ingredient you might have for the appropriate new optional ingredient.
  • The new optional ingredients can now be obtained from two different, widespread sources: Humanoid Treasure & Resource Nodes
  • The tier of optional ingredient dropped via treasure is determined by the humanoid creature's level:
    • Apprentice Ingredients: Levels 1-12
    • Journeyman Ingredients: Levels 13-23
    • Expert Ingredients: Levels 24-34
    • Artisan Ingredients: Levels 35-43
    • Master Ingredients: Levels 44-50
    • Supreme Ingredients: Levels 51-60
  • The tier/type of optional ingredient obtained from a resource node is determined by the tier/type of node:
    • Farming Fields: can produce Cooking optional ingredients
    • Forestry Branches: can produce Tailoring and Woodworking optional ingredients
    • Prospecting Deposits: can produce Jeweller, Metalsmith, and Weaponsmith optional ingredients
    • Scholar Artifacts: can produce Scholar optional ingredients
  • The new optional ingredients now clearly state in their tooltips which profession and crafting tier (Apprentice, Journeyman, etc.) the ingredient is used by. Each new optional ingredient is used by only one profession/tier combination.
