Aion has different crafting skills, not unlike other MMORPGs such as World of Warcraft and Age of Conan. These crafting skills are Alchemy, Armorsmithing, Cooking, Handicrafting, Sewing and Weaponsmithing. Each player can learn all six crafting skills but can only master one.

Crafting Skills
  • Alchemy – this crafting skill allows you to create potions, mana stones, orbs and other alchemical items. Recommended for mages.
  • Armorsmithing – create your own armor, helms, shields and other metal equipment. A good skill for warriors and clerics.
  • Cooking – with cooking, you can make useful food and drink items that can give you beneficial buffs and other effects.
  • Handicrafting – this craft focuses on different items and trinkets like bows, glasses, necklaces, rings and earrings. This skill is ideal for rangers and chanters.
  • Sewing – those who specialize in sewing can make cloth and leather armor. Best for mages and scouts.
  • Weaponsmithing – create swords, daggers, polearms and other metal weapons. Great for assassins and warriors.

To learn a crafting skill, you need to visit the corresponding trainer for your race and pay an amount of Aion Kinah. Learning a crafting skill costs 3,500 Aion Kinah for the first level. Each skill level has an experience bar. After you reach maximum experience in that skill level, you can go back to your trainer to increase your crafting skill level, provided that you have the Aion Kinah for it.

Gathering Skills:

Aside from crafting skills, Aion also has two gathering skills. These skills are used to obtain the raw materials for your chosen crafting skill. Just like crafting, gathering also has a chance to fail, depending on your skill level and item level.

Gathering Skills

Crafting Skill

Description

Extract Vitality

Used to gather natural resources like berries, herbs, fish, metals, etc.

Extract Aether

Used to gather aether and aether crystals.


Gathering can sometimes take a lot of time and it might be more efficient to buy materials with Aion Kinah.

  • Extracting Aether:
Gathering aether can be challenging at times because aethers can only be found in the sky, inside riftways. It's always good to keep flight potions ready so that you won't fall to your death in case you run out of flight time while gathering aethers.

Aether crystals can be extracted up to 5 times, unlike other resources that only give 3. There are only a few crystals for skill level 25 and below and you might have a hard time gathering if there are a lot of other players in the area.

Aion crafting is not as complicated as other MMOs like WoW, but it's nice that it doesn't require too much effort to reach the higher levels.

Gathering Tips:
- Keep all the refining stones that drop off monsters, you'll need them when creating equipment

- Sell refining stones that you don't need to other players on the auction house for a good sum of Aion Kinah. Some go for 1,000 Kinah and more.

- Try to get every gatherable item that you can, this will increase your skill level faster and reduce the chances of failure. You can also sell the stuff you don't need.

Now that you know the basics in Aion crafting and gathering, you can effectively level up your skills and make useful items for your adventures in Atreia. You can even make some Aion Kinah on the auction house. If you need a bit more Kinah for materials, visit EpicToon.com for the best Aion Kinah around!
