A late stage game mechanic, the crafting of trinkets is a long and tedious process that is reserved for higher level players.
Don’t get me wrong, the rewards are fantastic: elevating one’s base stats well into the 6K range and beyond for players sporting decent base stats. But just to farm for and store the ingredients alone would take a whole lot of patience, time and…not forgetting, money.
But if you’re a free player, how far can you actually go with trinket crafting?
One of the first (and major) concerns would be stash inventory space (not to be confused with the regular inventory space) as lacking that would simply prevent a player from storing up much-needed ingredients, and ultimately put a halt to your endeavor in attaining the trinkets.
In this post, let’s examine how much stash space you’ll actually need for your top-tier (T5) trinket.
Certain things to take note:
*This is assuming that you’re crafting ONLY one elemental trinket.
*All crafting materials (ToE/Mission obtainable) are capped at 99x per slot.
*Trinkets are capped at 1x per slot.
*Stash space below takes into assumption that you’ve already finished your previous trinket and moving on to the next one.
For a T1 trinket = 2 stash slots
[1 feather, 7 mushrooms]
For a T2 trinket = 6 stash slots
(assuming you’ll be making a T1 trinket at the same time)
[11 feathers, 108 flowers, 52 mushrooms, 1x T1 trinket]
For a T3 trinket = 17 stash slots
(assuming you’ll be making T2 trinkets at the same time)
[25 ores, 158 flowers, 306 dusts, 5x T2 trinkets]
For a T4 trinket = 31 stash slots
(assuming you’ll be making T3 trinkets at the same time)
[37 ores, 219 dusts, 195 other element liquid, 8x T3 trinkets]
For a T5 trinket = 50 stash slots
(assuming you’ll be making T4 trinkets at the same time)
[40 spirits , 167 liquid, 361 other element quartz, 12x T4 trinkets]
That means to craft one T5 trinket from scratch, you’ll need:
644 x Ores (from missions)
40 x Spirits (from missions)
60 x feathers (from missions)
167 x Liquids (ToE)
1804 x Flowers (ToE)
267 x Mushrooms (ToE)
5076(?!) x Dusts (ToE)
195 x Other element liquid (T4, ToE)
361 x Other element Quartz (T5, ToE)
In conclusion, it’s clear that the starting stash space is insufficient and it’s necessary to prepare your stash inventory space to get ready for those 50++ stash slots. Also, note that this is based on ONLY one elemental trinket so you’ll need to buy much more if you’re preparing for the other elements.
Furthermore, it’ll be best to think twice about throwing away any crafting ingredients for space. Getting those 5076 dusts will take a while.
Good luck and have fun!
