Crafting Materials tarot

Crafting Materials tarot card

Crafting in Dragon Age: Inquisition allows the player to create unique weapons, armor, runes, and potions. A crafting station is required for crafting and can be found in Haven, the Undercroft, and any Keeps that have been captured.

Weapon and Armor Crafting

To craft new armor or weapons, you need a schematic and enough materials.
The schematic determines the appearance and potential power of the crafted item.
The materials determine the specific stats and powers that will be added to the new item.

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

Crafting/Material Slots

There are five different types of crafting slots: utility, offense, defense, damage, and armor.
The type of slot determines the stat that will be generated from the material placed in it.
For example, placing iron in a defense slot gives a bonus to melee defense, while putting it in the utility slot gives a bonus to Strength.
Experiment with different combinations of materials and slots to create unique items that fit your needs.
