    Stone Crafting - Renaissance Style

    March 28th, 2013


    Implemented in Patch 34 was Renaissance's version of the stone crafting system from OSI. Around the time this was added to the original servers origin had been sold to EA and the quality of patches was steadily declining. Rather than take this as a chance to improve crafting, they simply mailed it in. This is how stone crafting should have been implemented.

    To pursue the trade of stone crafting a player will need a variety of skills.
    • 100 Carpentry- To craft the items.
    • 50-100 Mining - To harvest the ores.
    • Mallet and Chisel - to craft the items.
    • Gargoyles Pickaxe - To harvest the ores.

    In order to craft stone, sandstone and marble items you will first need to purchase a mallet and chisel from the stone crafter. These vendors can be found in the mining guilds in various towns. The one pictured here is in magincia.

    The next step is to collect some marble, sandstone and stone ore. To do this we will need a gargoyles pickaxe and a cave or dungeon location.
    Note: In a future patch mining gloves will give you a bonus chance to find elementals.

    While using the gargoyle pickaxe to mine you will have a 20% chance to find an ore elemental. Depending on the colored ore normally found in that location you have a chance to find a marble, sandstone or stone elemental.
    Note:Gargoyle pickaxes can be found on gargoyles and as a reward from low level blacksmithing bulk order deeds.

    • Marble Elementals are found where you find Valorite and Verite ore.
    • Sandstone Elementals are found where you find Agapite and Gold ore.
    • Stone Elementals are found where you find Shadow, Copper and Bronze ore.

    Once you find and dispatch the ore elemental you can search its corpse to find the raw stone needed to craft stone items. (1-4 ingots per elemental) However it must be smelted first.

    Next we need to smelt our raw stone into ingots. To do this find your nearest forge. Marble, Sandstone and Stone ore require 50 mining in order to smelt effectively. However more skill is required depending on the size of the stack you are smelting.

    Once we have created enough ingots we can now use our mallet and chisel to being crafting. In order to craft effectively you will need 100 carpentry.
    Mining is not required to craft these items

    First make sure you select the type of ingots you want to use to craft the selected items. If you want to make a sandstone bench, make sure to select sandstone ingots.

    So with 100 carpentry is the success rate 100%?

    Yes. Once you can begin crafting these items, there is no failure rate.

    Not that it matters to me because I have both on the same character but do you need mining once you are actually crafting the stone or will a character with GM carpentry and the mallet and chisel do the trick?

    I think a good addition to stone crafting would be stone and sandstone pillars
    Also, square pillars
    Pillars with different capitals
    I will stop before getting too trammy ;)

    Unfortunately, my GM Mage/Miner can only affect the dull copper elemental.

    No room for fighting skills. This is also my poisoner.

    I tried a summoned daemon, but it was instantly dispelled. I'll try the bs/ev. thanks!

    Yeah, you'll need to get a few of them up as fast as you can, to keep it going.

    If that doesn't work, it's time for a character revamp. Ore elemental hunting is not really designed to be solo'd by a crafter.

    For example, my battle miner:

    I can't bring up that much info on my own character. (Ragnarok)

    Odd, I can for some of my characters.

    Do a [profile command in game. Make sure you have a check in the Public Character box.

    You don't have to. A bard with magery will do fine but I'm sure an elemental ban device would help.

    A solid dexxer build can handle them all fairly easy, an elemental ban or earth shatter weapon makes it by far easier
