|Skill Type||Crafting / Lore|
Arms Lore is a skill used in conjunction with other Crafting Skills. Arms Lore can be used during the crafting of certain items to increase exceptional chance rate, as well as to identify the condition of a weapon.
Usage[edit | edit source]
To use the Arms Lore skill, a player must examine a weapon or armor piece using a Magnifying Glass. Upon use, the Arms Lore skill will determine the following item properties:
- Metal/Leather Type (the type of ingot / leather used to create the weapon/armor)
- Quality (Exceptional or otherwise)
- Slayer Type
At the Grandmaster level, Arms Lore provides a 10% increase in the chance to craft an 'exceptional' item. Exceptional items provide more damage (if a weapon) or protection (if armor), as well as durability bonuses. Further, a Grandmaster in Arms Lore has an increased chance of crafting a Slayer item.
Upon activation of the Arms Lore skill to examine a piece of equipment, there are two possible outcomes:
- Failure: A system message states 'You are not certain'
- Success: A small menu containing details of the item statistics is presented
Durability and Effects[edit | edit source]
Durability will soon impact weapon and armor performance, at which point, a penalty is incurred at each step. Arms Lore can be used on an item to get information on the item's durability status.
Notes[edit | edit source]
In the future, it is planned to have the Arms Lore skill influence damage dealt through the use of various Combat Skills, such as Wrestling, similar to how Evaluating Intelligence contributes to the overall spell damage of spells cast using Magery.
