Assassin’s Creed 3 Crafting Recipes Guide – How To Craft Items

By   /   Oct 30, 2012


Crafting items through recipes has become an integral element for adventure and RPG games lately, and the simple enjoyment and goodies obtained from the art is extremely rewarding.

Crafting in Assassin’s Creed 3 holds an equally robust stature, with criteria and requirements similar to conventions. It expands the bomb-crafting art found in Assassin’s Creed Revelations, and applies that successful formula to a much large range of items.

For more help on Assassin’s Creed 3, read our Outfits, Naval Missions and Almanac Pages Guide.

Homestead and Crafting

The crafting is handled through the accounting book menu, which can be accessed in the study room of your homestead manor. However, this isn’t the only place – thankfully, the homestead is easily accessible to you from just about any general store.

Crafting greatly contributes to your Homestead community, which in turn allows you to get more recipes, more material, and hence more crafting options.

Assassin’s Creed 3 Crafting Recipes

Crafting recipes are found either lying around the map, or can be discovered by hit and trial (randomly mixing different ingredients/items together).

The former is an extremely tedious process for finding desired recipes for specific items, while the latter is easier, but can be costly as the ingredients are lost completely after a failed attempt.

If you’re too lazy to find all the recipes, or don’t want to risk discovering them yourself, then feel free to use this list of craft-able items and their recipes.

  • Farmers: Hides, Wool
  • Hunting: Bear Grease
  • Huntress/Hunting Materials: Pelts
  • Lumberer: Lumbers, Barks, Kindling, Charcoal
  • Miners: Ores, Limestone

While the above general materials are easy to farm, following special materials will require you to complete a mission or help people around Homestead.

Special Iron Ingots – Complete the mission for the Miners in the Homestead to get it. If you need more Ingots for your crafting needs, look for a chest behind your Manor.
