Release 53 - Crafting Changes

Patrick Conners

We are focusing on just the crafting changes, but you can find the full list of all the Release 53 changes at

Crafting Failure Changes

Failure when Enchanting or Masterworking an item will no longer destroy the item, but rather will decrease maximum durability. When the item reaches 30 or less durability, the item will be blocked from further Enchanting and Masterworking.

Player-Crafted Gear as Loot

Weapons and armor crafted by players and sold to NPC merchants now have a chance to be found in supply bundles, which are found as loot on humanoid enemies. Player crafted items found in this way are sorted by power so the more powerful items will appear in supply bundles found on more powerful enemies.

Heraldry (refer to the Heraldry Guide for more information)

The Heraldry system is now open for everyone through the sale of Heraldry Eternal Patterns in the Add-On Store. New versions of plate armor, chain armor, leather armor, cloth armor, and banners are now available and are visually distinct from the Founder versions released in Release 52.  Additionally, a cloak and rectangular heater sheild are now available.

Harvestable Resources Visibility

Garlic, Nightshade, and Mandrake Root are all now easier to see. Garlic also has been made larger, with leaves added. Additionally, Nightshade and Mandrake Root have the whole plant pulsing, instead of just parts of those plants.

Worn Armor

Low-level humanoids will drop worn armor which can be equipped or salvaged for patterns (note no pattern for the cloak). These will come in all armor types and a cloak: Rusty Plate Armor, Rusty Chainmail, Ragged Leather Armor, Dirty Cloth Armor, and Worn Cloak.

Offline Drop Rates

For R53, the drop rates for almost everything has been increased in Offline Mode. This means that resources (ex. ore), artifacts, recipes, gold, and components will now all appear at much greater frequency.

Animal Skin Rugs

Animal skins and heads can now be used to craft Animal Skin rugs.
