Thanks to @DKPuncherello 's idea, @whitelet and I started to forge titanium AOE tools (with dmg) to help new players. We found a way to control the cost, and therefore we can provide cheap AOE tools (around +200 rank) as low as 1000c while still covering the cost.
This method only uses gums, fate paste 2, decons resin 3, boon removal solvent 1, and drain 1 + pure 3. And we want to share the method here so that we can more easily help new players !
Since tools (hammers, axes, shovels) are being used the most, I made and post them first (and I’m still making the one for grapples and slingbows).
The first video shows two regular forging steps:
Since accidents always happen lol, this second video (long) shows the process of forging 6 batches of tools while tricking the odds :
I’m happy to answer any questions! And any suggestions/comments (on the method not the videos I know my video editing sucks lol) would be great!
ps: Notice that we use pure 3 to avoid getting bad quirks, but one can definitely use drain 1 only to further shrink the cost.
ps2: Lvl8 dmg can one hit T1 without any power bonus, tool mastery, dmg epic, and tool epic
ps3: All BGM played by @whitelet
