Aion Weaponsmithing 100-199

By -

You've done well to come this far, young one.  You've slaved over that anvil for hours on end now.  You know what it's like to experience loss, or at least loss in your wallet.  Now it's time to experience the joy of crafting something that can make you rich beyond your wildest dreams!  Oh, it's so good to be a weaponsmith!

If it procs.
If it sells.

One is luck and one is your abillity to set the proper price to both ensure it sells, and get what you should get for the item rather than just blindly undercutting everyone out there.  It's brutal.  There's a harsh reality out there awaiting you.  There can be a million weaponsmiths, and only so many flux to go around between them.  This will come into play more and more as the average level of the player rises in level and next thing you know, you can't find any fluxes for the 20-25 range of weapons.  You're not making these weapons to level up the craft.  You're making them to make a profit or hand them off for use to a comrade in your legion or your alt.

We'll be working with titanium primarily for this run of items.  If you're planning on making a weapon or five, at least bring 1000 ore.  This unfortunately means you need 1000 charcoal as well.  So set aside at least 500,000 for this tier if you're going to work at it for the purposes of making something useful.  If you don't care about the recipes for this tier and you just want to blitz on by to get the Expert the fastest, you are more than welcome to just hammer work orders.

Did you know that the Double XP weekends affect crafting as well?  This can lead to some amazing leveling of alts, and allow them to skip otherwise tedious levels.  If you've ever leveled a ranger, you know how bad it is in the teens.  Channeling your inner blacksmith can cause you to skip an entire block of levels, or any other trade for that matter.  Keep that in mind.


Rip into that titanium.  Crack open the bag of Charcoal.  Press create all, and come back in an hour.  Normally that would be an exaggeration, but if you brought 500+ titanium for this, that's.... really not all that far off.  Really, we could do without the progress bar on some of these.  There is no suspense for high quality bars here!  100 will get you to 120ish, so if you want to just get the most out of the actual skill experience and move onto work orders from there, you can do that. 


Slamming on Titanium Nails and Rods.  Same idea as the Steel ones you did to get this far back when you worked with Iron.  Again, only make what you need here or plan to use.  These are not a profitable venture, trust me!


Run the 140 work order for this set.  It'll get tedious in the 160s, but it will ensure you get all of the recipes available for this level range.    Once you near the end of the 160s, go ahead and craft any of the level 25 weapons you've been saving up materials for.  If you get a Noble version, be sure to go for the Worthy Noble version.  High quality just isn't enough these days, you need high quality of high quality!  Oh, it's so beautiful when it happens though...


Buy full stacks of the 170 work order and run it through the end.  This will ensure you get all of the durable recipes and make your life a lot easier when it comes to switching materials every work order.  You might balk at how slow it is to run a less than bright yellow/gold work order.  People will also balk at you when you only have the worthy recipe for a weapon, and not the durable, or vice versa.  Save yourself the grief and embarrassment.  Do this right the first time.

The illustrious 30's of weapons awaits you!   Signs of weapons resembling legendary weapons from a certain other popular game will be coming!  Weapons that are in the same level range as your expert weapons!   Weapons that will throw you into poverty with how much kinah you'll need to buy to get enough attempts to high quality one!   No really, it's good to be a weaponsmith, I promise!   Stick with it and I'll see you in the Greater Weaponsmithing, 200-299 class!
