Aetherforge questions

Recommended Posts

Hey so I'm just figuring out bout the aetherforging skill and was wondering if there is a place online where I can see a gallery of the crafted items.  And mounts.  I would like to see the appearance differences in the two ironfang mounts as well as the looks of the different armors...  All the armor stats suck compared to the even armor we get for free so I'm assuming these armors are for cosmetics but have no clue what they look like...  Please assist me.

Aetherforging shows EVERY SINGLE recipe available, even the ones that require a recipe bought from an NPC. Just select the recipe desired in-game, in the Aetheforging window, and if it is a piece of armour, you can preview it on your character by doing Ctrl + Left Click. Keep in mind most armour with a "greater output" have their own look, so you can preview those as well the same way.

As for the mounts: Sonicspeed Ironfang - Lightspeed Ironfang

having  the 'category' column like at the broker is a GOOD IDEA

in the 'proficient' column, ☑ please add the checks ☑ like in the lower level system, scrolling thru is ugh after making partial mats ☑

showing partial mats ➡️  , extended designs, is a GOOD IDEA

in the 'status' column when it says 'not obtainable' i wasted time by not knowing that a design was available at the npc. to me, not obtainable means i can never get it. a better word might be: purchasable 

difficult to advance with no levelling designs, stuck at proficient120 atm, not wanting to craft useless armor/weapon/accessories

having to hover mouse over most columns, to read the long phrases, is frustrating & time consuming. expandable columns would be good.

costs so much! very broke! levelling takes so long! buying partial mats at the mercy of broker is bad, always has been bad, mainly because mob drops are so rare.

There is a list of the most "proficient" way to level aetherforging. I think @Bryos-DN made it and posted it somewhere, so maybe he'll repost it for you. There are certain things you must craft that are mostly useless, yes, but there are a lot of things that can be useful to you or at least you can sell them on the broker. That said, yes, leveling aetherforging is time-consuming and costly, but it's not as bad as it was pre-5.8 since they nerfed it. Just use a 500% crafting amulet and you will see the points rise much faster.

We can Aetherforge the same recipe up to 40 levels. 20 is best.

Its actually quite straight forward to level up Aetherforging. Just spam recipes that dont require a lot of materials, materials that you have easy access to and such. Keep in mind Edible Fruit, Edible Meat, Natural Essence and Vitality Essence can be bought from NPCs in bundles of 100 for few kinah in Norvold/Iluma, and Spirit Stones of Eternity from a special NPC in a level 6 Landing in Upper Reshanta. It takes quite some time and crafts, but it is a lot easier if you get the crafting boosts, which increase the XP gain of crafting by 500%, and lasts 5 hours.

You are basically intended to spam a single recipe for 20 levels, and move to higher recipes as you unlock them (except for the first few levels). Here is what I consider the most effective route.

  • 1-10p: Spirit Stone of Eternity Stamina
  • 10-30p: Processed Ordine Paper
  • 30-50p: Any processed scrolls (material scrolls or consumable scrolls)
  • 50-70p: Pet-safe Jerky Ingredient
  • 70-90p: Processed Elegue Reagent Paper
  • 90-110p: Upgraded Recovery Potion or Upgraded Secret Elixir (same materials, up to personal preference)
  • 110-130p: Pet-safe Cookie Ingredient
  • 130-150p: Greater Enchanting Supplement (Mythic) or Refined Magic Fluid (both are viable, the former one especially if you run low tier Archdaeva instances and lack greater supplements)
  • 150-170p: Processed scrolls
  • 170-190p: Pet-safe Ribs Ingredient
  • 190-210p: Processed Medicus Reagent Paper or Processed Terapeia Reagent Paper (I would prefer the former since it will be a materials for the following recipe)
  • 210-230p: Upgraded Healing Potion
  • 230-250p: Pet-safe Roasted Meat Ingredient
  • 250-270p: Processed Kera Crystal
  • 270-290p: Processed scrolls
  • 290-300p: ...Not sure really. Maybe the previous recipe will carry you to 300p. Maybe Cut Aurorium Crystal too, but the base crystal seems really expensive.

210 -230: Upgraded Healing Potion needs way too many Ancient Crafting Stones; instead, run 190: Processed Medicus Reagent Paper up to 230. [This will raise Aetherforging 40 levels]. Skip Upgraded Healing Potion all together or maybe use it from 220/5 to 230 (just the last few levels).

250-270: Processed Kera Crystal needs way too many Spirit Stone of Eternity; instead, run 230: Pet-safe Roasted Meat Ingredient up to 270.  [This will raise Aetherforging 40 levels]. Skip Processed Kera Crystal all together or maybe use it from 220/5 to 270 (just the last few levels).

Aetherforge 270: Processed scrolls for the last 30 Levels all the way up to max 300.

I do not believe reaching 300 is possible without the crafting boost charms. (It would take a year and cost billions.)

Most likely the craftable gear is gona be worse than the items you get through dungeons/pvp or i might be wrong. But hey better to level up aetherforging than spending your time and kinah on items rn thats going to be useless later

It is. I think the idea is to have some sort of "starter" gear while you grind out the dungeon/pvp gear.
