Crafting Materials tarot

Crafting Materials tarot card

Crafting in Dragon Age: Inquisition allows the player to create unique weapons, armor, and runes as well as potions, tonics and grenades.

A crafting station is required for crafting and can be found in Haven, the Undercroft, and any Keeps that have been captured.

In order to craft weapons or armor, crafting materials and schematics are needed. These items can be found randomly or bought from merchants. The materials used in crafting affect the specific stats of a resulting item, while schematics determine item appearance and potential power. To craft runes, the player must read glyphs by veilfire.

Weapon and Armor Material Slots

Schematics allow the placement of a set number of leather, metal, or cloth into a recipe and will determine the outcome of the item.
