Gathering and Production

Gathering and Production edit

Crafting

 

Adventurers commonly acquire powerful weapons, armor and equipment by claiming their just reward for defeating treacherous opponents and completing dangerous quests. However, another completely valid—and at times much less dangerous—method is to simply create them yourself through crafting. Through this process many different kinds of items can be created, many of which are not available for purchase from NPC vendors.

 

Professions

 Alchemy   Armorsmithing

 Cooking   Handicrafting

 Tailoring    Weaponsmithing

 

Crafting Levels

Amateur | Novice | Apprentice | Journeyman | Expert | Master

Gathering

 

Gathering is a crucial part of Aion, as it supports both Crafting and the economies of Atreia. Even humans can gather from lesser nodes with the Collection skill, and following ascension, Daevas can acquire more potent gatherables with the Essencetapping and Aethertapping skills.

Weathered Objects

 

Weathered Objects are ancient objects that have been shaped and altered over the years by sandblasting wind and rushing water.  They may not appear to be much, but a seasoned Daeva knows very well what treasures they can possibly contain.

Morphing

 

Normally in order to obtain resources, elemental stones, and fluxes, you must venture into the world and gather them from nodes or creatures.  Morphing is a way to create these items by using aether, divine power and/or morph catalysts.

Work Order

 

A Work Order is a special type of infinitely repeatable quest given by the crafting masters. Their main purpose is to provide a way of increasing the level of a player’s crafting skill. The player will also be given a random ingredient as a reward for successfully completing the Work Order.
