The Scrap Heap

Recipes have been added to convert scraps into items. Hours required for each batch are between 6 and 12. All of these will be found under the "Components" section of the workshops.

Blacksmiths can make:
- 1 piece of Gold (Requires: 111 scraps of gold and 100% in the Intermediate Forging university class)
- 1 pound of Iron (Requires: 111 scraps of iron and 100% in the Intermediate Forging university class)

Carpenters can make:
- 1 bushel of wood (Requires: 111 scraps of wood and 100% in the Advanced Wood Working university class)

Weavers can make:
- 1 hide Requires: 111 scraps of hide and 100% in the Advanced Weaving university class)
- 1 ball of wool (Requires: 111 scraps of wool and 100% in the Advanced Weaving university class)

Immediate thoughts:

At 6 hours per batch at level 3, this means that one can make 4 bushels of wood per day, 2 at level 1... after accounting for the cost of scraps.

I see no situation in which you aren't better off just harvesting new wood unless you are using this to farm workshop skill.

I don't know about other workshops, but I'd imagine they have the same problem if we are looking at similar time scales.

When you click on a scrap item in the market for information, it still says: "Item Does not exist or is not yet available."

These recipes were added as players had scraps from recycling that they wanted to turn back into items. If you have a suggestion on how you want to see it improved please feel free to put one in. I think the logic is that they don't want to go back out and get the original items. Of course, it will always be easier to get new items than to recycle.

I mean I'd have the items be used in repair shops. I had thought that was the entire idea.

They will be able to be used in that manner once repair shops are rolled out. Until then, this is an alternative that was requested.
