    Crafting uses different items to create a new one with half-predetermined
    stats. A crafted item is always orange. There are four types of crafting:
    Blood, Caster, Safety and Hit Power. There are different recipes for
    every type of items (Headgear, Armor, etc). Recipes can be done on
    normal, exceptional or elite items but must be done on the right
    item.
