Weaponsmithing

Leveling up weaponsmithing is a great way to ensure that you have the best gear to face the various dangers on Aeternum. Exploring the world, you will no doubt find a lot of resources, which can be utilized at a forge to craft gear.

  • Rapier
  • Hatchet
  • Great Axe

  • Round Shield
  • Longsword

Benefits of Leveling up Weaponsmithing

The way it works is, the more gear you craft, the higher your weaponsmithing skill will rise. And with new levels, you’ll be able to craft better equipment.

Each of your crafted items has a chance to have additional perks or attributes to it. The higher your weaponsmithing skill is, the better perks and attribute points you’ll get for your weapon.

How to Power Level Weaponsmithing

Using normal methods to slowly progress your skills, can take a lot of time and be tiresome. Do you need good skills, and want to craft new and improved weapons for yourself as soon as possible?

If so, then we have to rely on power leveling our skill. This is done by, making a lot of the same type of items over and over again. All of this ultimately helps us with Town Projects as well through the ‘Weaponsmith’s Temperament’ crafting buff.

It should come as no surprise then that we would be requiring a lot of resources and money.
