Crafting allows players to progress more easily through the game by creating stronger equipment to help them on their journey. This process requires you to gather the basic to rare materials used to craft equipment, reliable healing potions, and empowering elixirs that will benefit you on your journey.
Here are the NPCs that will help you craft the equipment and items you need!
The Blacksmith’s Forge is used to craft equipment for the fierce Berserker and stalwart Crusader.
