Upgrading a crafted Item[]

An Item crafted from Blueprints can (often) be upgraded, excluded are stacking (Building) Items and other mass-crafts like Cannon.

  • The item has to be placed in the correct crafting location (e.g. Smithy).
  • Gold Coin are added to the required materials (quality as same as for the craft, so 1-6x, not quantity tho).
  • Each consecutive upgrade becomes more expensive.
  • Only one parameter can be chosen per upgrade.
  • The maximal number of upgrades is displayed on the Blueprint and the crafted item itself, on the item it also says the number of already applied updates.
  • The increase is a percentage (3-10%), which differ for Item type and parameter (like Durability, %damage etc., see Upgrade percentages below.
  • This percentage is then applied to the value of the parameter (displayed - base).
  • Due to this percentage, a portion of the Crafting Bonus is also applied each Upgrade.

Upgrade percentages[]

For Cloth Gloves and the Intelligence parameter, it will be 5%. So a Mythical Cloth Gloves with 16,7% Intelligence as parameter after the craft, each upgrade would add 0,84 additional percent to this parameter.
