Yet another weapons question

#1WitchBaby4200Posted 10/4/2013 11:08:35 AM
I'm seriously missing something when crafting tools and weapons. The forging machine keeps giving me the same recipes for tools and weapons I already have. If I make something that I already have do I just sell it? What am I supposed to do? And I can't see to upgrade. I can't eat anymore bread because it just keeps telling me that I gave to forge weapons. Help please. Thanks.

Make tools, make weapons, raise your skill.

So make the same tools and weapons I already have and then upgrade them?

You need to keep forging (same stuff over and over again is fine)to raise your skill level high enough to learn new recipes.

Ohhh it's you Witchbaby.

Your problem is probably something like this:

Your forging is 51
The highest Short Sword I can make is: Grantale 59
The highest Spear I can make is: Safety Lance 13
The highest Twin Swords I can make is: 57

So you're like, "Mina! Why can't I make a higher spear than 13!? I know there's more spears out there."

And I say this:

"Well what's your skill level with the weapon in question?"

and you say:

Short Sword 30
Spear 8
Dual Blades 68

So funnily enough it seems like you have to breach a certain level of skill with the weapon before you can forge higher level weapons. This means actually fighting with the weapons in question. I've tested this. I was at 1 skill with Spear, tried to eat a Weapon Recipe bread, nada... went outside, fought some enemies to get to Spear skill 8, ate a Weapon Recipe bread, voila, I learned Spears. These are my actual figures at the moment so this is pretty accurate. :)

Hey Mina! Thank you so much! This is a HUGE help! :D Totally explains my problem. I was like "There has to be SOMETHING I'm missing." Thanks for the thorough explanation! :D
