Default Arakion - Involved Crafting

May 9th, 2018, 15:16
Arakion will have crafting that is quite involved.



Unlike many other dungeon crawlers, you canít go to spot X and grab the Hammer of Destiny to crush all foes. Instead, most equipment must be crafted. There are two aspects to crafting: developing new ideas and putting them together.

Developing An Idea

The first thing to do before crafting is to develop an idea for an object. Ideas are primarily developed by taking a picture of a relevant object, such as this spear. However, ideas can also be developed by gaining traits, learning lore, reading storybooks and much more.

Taking A Photo

In order to develop an idea with your camera, you first have to find a promising object. These are often accompanied by a rare species of blue butterfly. Looking at the object with your camera will highlight it, and taking a picture will grant you the new idea.

Crafting The Object

Crafting the object itself is pretty straightforward. Head to the forge. Once there, you can either talk to the Forgemaster or simply open the crafting panel directly while you're near the forge. Click on the object, and, if you have enough resources, click 'craft' to craft it.

Crafting Is Additive

A Wooden Spear isn't very exciting on its own - the next part of crafting is where Arakion gets unique. Nearly every craftable object can be upgraded in different ways.

The spear has a number of unique upgrades. These include a Brass Spear, a Pitchfork, and a Javelin. In turn, each one of those items has their own set of upgrades - and so on.

Thanks For Reading!

There you have it - the basics of crafting! Crafting is core to your heroes' performance, and selecting which objects to craft is nearly as critical as crafting them at all! Crafting is something that I love in Arakion and just another way to customize your heroes. Arakion launches Early Access on May 15th, be sure to dive in and tell me what you think about crafting!

Have a wonderful day!

Thanks Farflame!

This is another game that I wondered if we'd ever actually see it released, and it appears that day will be coming soon. One thing that really does intrigue me is how crafting in the game became much more than I ever anticipated, and I mean that in a very good way.

Got my steam key for backing.

I have to say it was pretty sweet getting an email with my key listed right in said email. No signing up for other sites, no hoops to jump through, no transferring my pledge somewhere else. Just my key right there. Thanks devs

Same, the key delivery was pain free and easy, and I wonder why on earth this isn't done exactly this way for all supported products. If people give money to a cause/project, receiving the product shouldn't be the hassle it turns out to be ninety percent of the time.
