ELDEN RING CRAFTING – WHAT DO WE KNOW?
Elden Ring’s more open-world gameplay focuses brings with it a variety of changes. These include an map for navigation, but, more importantly, an crafting system which allows players to use different resources to prepare to battles.
Although Elden Ring’s creation was not fully described, we were able to see a glimpse of how it works in the 15+ gameplay preview that Bandai Namco Entertainment shared with developer FromSoftware at November’s start.
Elden Ring’s crafting system is built on different resources from the Lands Between. The footage shows that the player could use Thin Animal Bones (which can be obtained from hunting animals) to make throwable Bone Knives. The player could create Bone Arrows by adding Flight Pinions, which can be found in hunting birds.
Trina’s Lilly is an extremely rare plant that transformed the arrows into Sleepbone Arrows. The tip of these arrows are coated with a powerful sedative. By landing a shot, enemies are put to sleep and it makes them easier to execute. This naturally supports different ways of approaching certain encounters in the game.
Elden Ring’s crafting system allows you to create many more materials than the ones above. We haven’t seen much of it yet, but it seems to increase players’ adaptability in the field, which is fitting with its open-world focus.
You can even use special map markers to mark locations for gathering places for crafting materials.
In the weeks leading up to launch, Elden Ring will likely share more details about its crafting system. Here’s more information about the action-RPG: Characters, Release Date.
