PSO2 Crafting System Mini Guide

This guide is just to get you up to speed on the crafting system and is not completely exhaustive.

The point of the Crafting System is to make your low rarity items almost as strong as a top of the line item. Crafting ★10 and higher items will drop their stats, however you can increase their strength by extending them further.
Be careful as top of the line ★10 and higher items may end up weaker than expected.

 

Important Information

January 17th, 2014 – Sakai updated his blog today to explain some of the “hidden” mechanics behind the crafting system. In summary, there is a damage variance in PSO2 along the minimum and maximum values. The maximum damage values are shown in the Item Details window as S-ATK/R-ATK/T-ATK. In general, ★7 and higher weapons have a damage variance that falls between 90% (Minimum) ~ 100% (Maximum) damage. 

When you craft an item, its base stats are standardized. the damage values are overwritten, and special parameters are lost. Thus, ★7 and higher crafted items will end up having a wider damage variance than before. Sakai received lots of questions as to whether or not this was a bug. (In fact, the PSO2 wiki dedicated an entire section for it, but wanted an official statement before determining it as such.) However, Sakai revealed that this is working as intended. And in order to compensate for this loss, you will need to increase the DEX values on your weapons, mag, and skill trees. Another suggestion is to level up skills that affect the “Critical” rates and values. This will help to improve the average damage for crafted items.

Crafting Lines

Craft Lines

You get 9 crafting slots to choose from:

  • Slot 1 is available first.
  • Slot 2 is unlocked at crafting level 5.
  • Slot 3 is unlocked at crafting level 15.
  • Slot 4 ~ 6 require Premium Set.
  • Slot 7 ~ 9 can be purchased with 300 AC each.
  • A cooldown timer will appear after crafting an item from a particular slot. This deactivates that slot until the time expires. If you wish to speed up this process you need an item called Liliparium.
  • Once crafted, the item gets bound to its owner.

 

Liliparium

Lilipariums are crafting items used to reduce the cooldown time of a crafting line. They can be obtained through [Mining Base Defense] Emergency Quests, Daily Craft rewards, Title rewards, and the AC Store.

Item Desynthesis

Item Desynthesis

As you may have noticed, you won’t be able to craft an item unless you have the proper materials on hand. Access the Item Desynthesis Menu to disassemble items and acquire the materials used for crafting.

※Please note that the item is destroyed in the process and converted into materials.

 

Item Desynthesis has two outcomes. you can either “Succeed (成功) or “Greatly Succeed (大成功).” If you achieve the latter, you can acquire rare materials like Rubiard needed for some of the higher level crafting recipes.
