We're not done with 9Dragons yet today. In a special double-feature, Ken Johnson also runs us through the game's crafting system. While we will have a Clan Feature every week for six weeks, the bi-weekly developer journals will also continue as scheduled.
| Enhancing a weapon is a nine-stage process, and in each step, raw materials need to be sourced. These materials can be purchased from shops, earned on quests, or found while hunting. Blood Essence is often a main component and this is attained through either the killing of monsters, or other players (PvP areas are a great place for this).
Having acquired the necessary Blood Essence and other materials, the master craftswoman will tell you how much gold she wants for her work. Obviously, this is dependent upon the level of refinement required. This is a health warning - the greater the amount of refinement required, the lower the success rate will be. If the refining is successful you will get back your weapon with more attacking power. However, if the refinement fails your weapon will be destroyed. Don’t go crying to a GM if that happens!
