Tools and Weapons
This page is intended to elaborate on how to craft tools and weapons in more detail. It's recommended that you read the starter guide first.
Tools and weapons don't come easy in Vintage Story and they shouldn't! In real life, these things aren't easy to make so it's very challenging yet rewarding to obtain these in Vintage Story.
Making tools and weapons is a multi-step process that involves crafting, smelting and smithing. Below we'll go over all the steps needed to make that awesome sword you always wanted!
Note: I use the term "Tools" throughout this article to denote "Tools and Weapons" since a weapon is really a tool of death! No really I just don't want to type that much. :-)
Tools can be made from several different raw materials. The raw material you choose determines the process which is required to create your tool. In general, tools that are more useful are harder to make and also harder to find the raw materials.
Stone tools are made by knapping. Stone is simple and weak, but it is your only option in the early game. Flint is the best stone for most tools.
