The ability to smith armour is negatively affected by darkness therefore lighting fixtures should be present throughout the whole crafting process in order to prevent quality deterioration. The skill also deteriorates if the character has body parts which aren't at full health (lower skill below <80-85%). The best way to start learn the skills from a low level is by making Armour Plating, Chainmail or Leather until at least level 40 is reached. From that point on, the skill can be trained by making Bandanas, which should provide a decent profit at standard quality.
Materials needed for crafting can be made with fabric looms (hemp or cotton), a Leather Tanning Bench, a Chainmail Sheet Fabrication Bench, and a Plate Beating Station. Alternatively, characters can buy or steal these materials from shops.

Armour Grades Edit
Critical Success Chance Edit
Upon crafting a piece of armour there is a chance that the armour crafted will be one quality grade higher than normal. This 'critical success chance' is dependent on how much higher the crafter's skill is compared to the armour quality he is crafting. The chance of a critical success can be viewed by selecting the corresponding station for the piece of armour, selecting "Queue...", and rolling the cursor over the piece of armour currently being crafted.
