Essentially, regardless of your crafting profession, most of the ingredients you need to make an item can be broken up into a few parts, stuff you gather from the environment, stuff you loot from monster kills and stuff you simply purchase from the corresponding profession NPC.
Well if it still sounds confusing, then I guess you can just look for things that glow and sparkle while your running around the game world. And once you hover your mouse over them, your cursor would change to the appropriate tool icon (pickaxe for Blacksmith, seedling for Alchemist and knife with a sack for Artisan and Chef), indicating that they are stuff you would need to gather for your crafting profession.
As for stuff you would need to loot from monster kills, they basically comprise of the following.
|Earthly Trace||Firmament Essence||Monster Fragment|
|Root of Life||Spirit of Ruin|
Since I reckon that stuff you simply purchase from the corresponding profession NPC would require no further explanation, I shall therefore skip it and instead offer up an example to make crafting things clearer.
- Natural Patterned Leather
- Mystical Fragment Crystal
- Dim Crystal
Is obtained from disassembling equipments.
- Bell Collar Ornament
Is looted off the Moonlight Flower, Level 32 Boss of Payon's Secret Forest Tomb Dungeon.
- Golden Yarn
Can be bought from the Artisan Expert.
With the process of crafting out of the way, the final thing you need to know would be the learning of new crafting recipes.
The vending system in RO2 only becomes available to players once their character becomes level 10 and above (regardless of their class and profession). And upon gaining access, you can simply bring up the vending window by pressing "Y" while standing still.
How It Works
To put an item in your inventory up for sale, all you have to do is right click on the item (in your inventory) while your vending window is open and then set your desired price for selling that item. If the item your selling is a stackable, do remember to set your price accordingly as it will be sold as a stack altogether because the buyer cannot choose the quantity he wishes to buy. So if you wish to sell something in smaller quantities, you will have to split them up into individual stacks first (via shift + left click) and then price them separately.
For vending craft skills, it works somewhat in the same way as well. Just click on the "Craft Item" tab, right click on the specific recipe(s) you wish to offer up for crafting and set your desired crafting fee. Sounds simple enough? But here's the problem...
Well, the actual dilemma here isn't in collecting materials that we can easily acquire from hunting monsters or buying off NPC merchants but rather those profession specific ingredients. And since these ingredients are not on us (but on the vendor) and we cannot acquire these ingredients ourselves as its not our profession (and if it is, we wouldn't even need to use their service), so there is no way we can use the crafting service offered as it is now.
So, to circumvent this problem, please remember to put these profession specific ingredients up for sale together with the crafting service your offering. Else no one would be able to use your service easily. But then again...perhaps it might be easier to just craft the darn thing and sell it.
