Craft system redesigned based on craft mastery and craft energy

- Craft Mastery

• Upon successful craft production, your craft mastery will increase by a certain amount. However, if your craft production fails, your craft mastery will only increase by one. In addition, no points will increase if the crafted item’s level is lower than the character’s craft ability.

• Players are able to attempt crafting of all items in the category, regardless of their current craft mastery. (The rate of success for crafting, rate of acquiring 2 slots, rate of acquiring craft mastery points depends on the character’s current craft mastery.)

• Maximum level of craft is 11, and craft level depends on the craft mastery (e.g. 0~999: Level 1 / 4,000~4,999: Level 5)

• If craft mastery becomes full, then the craft level can be upped by paying a certain amount of Alz

• Once a player maxes a rank, they are given the ‘+’ option which will level up the current craft rank

• When you have reached a craft mastery cap, you won’t be able to obtain anymore points unless you choose to level up.

- Craft Energy

• Craft energy is consumed whether a player’s craft is successful or a failure.

• Total craft energy will increase on each craft level up

• Player’s will acquire 5 points of craft energy every minute automatically, regardless whether they are connected to the game or not.

• Crafting is impossible when the energy is insufficient
