Salt and Sacrifice: How to Craft, Get More Crafting Options, and Farm Materials

The popularity of eSports among video game players has led to an increasing demand for gaming expertise and opportunities. The preferred league is the League of Legends Championship Series, where teams from around the world compete in a best-of-three format using their own unique race.

In Salt and Sacrifice, we explored on-the-go making for basic ranged munitions, but the heart of the crafting system comes after you’ve fought Mages. Every Mage, as well as the creatures they generate, drops crafting resources specific to the Mage’s element.

In our guide on upgrading weapons and armor, we touched on the subject briefly. Much of that knowledge is applicable to this issue. In Salt and Sacrifice, here’s how you make all of the different elemental gear.

How to Sacrifice and Craft in Salt

Kill at least one named Mage to begin creating. The Pyromancer is likely to be your first, and each zone has four to six Mage varieties. In one region, you’ll find enough crafting ingredients to make three or four pieces of gear.

When you have everything you need, return to Pardoner’s Vale, level up, and then turn right until you reach the red campfire. The prompt “Craft Equipment” will appear. To proceed, choose it.

When you hover over objects in this menu, you’ll see the items you need (as well as those you currently have), much like in most other games’ crafting systems. When you have all of the resources you need, choose the appropriate option from the menu at the bottom (X on PlayStation, A on Xbox, etc.).

How to Expand Your Crafting Possibilities

There won’t be many choices when you initially access the crafting menu. Only two weapons, an armor set, rings, ornamental trinkets, and talismans will be available to you.

Every Mage you kill raises your gear type choices by one, and by the second zone, you’ll be swimming in alternatives. As you go through Salt and Sacrifice, you’ll gain better tier armor from the tougher Mages you’ll meet. For survival, you’ll want to enhance the lower-tier gear, although even substantially upgraded early-game gear becomes obsolete if you go far enough.

If you want everything from a Mage, you’ll have to farm them as world bosses or during Fated Hunts, or you’ll have to be really fortunate during their first hunt.

How to Grow Crafting Supplies

World mages are less difficult to handle with, but they are more difficult to target farm. They’re also more difficult to follow since they don’t leave a trail. Once you deliver enough damage to trigger a teleport, they don’t likely to travel far from their previous position, but you’ll have to spend some time seeking for the Mage you’re looking for, since they appear randomly across the zone.

World Mages are never given a meaningful health bar, despite having no fewer HP. Your gear and level are the key differences between their first combat and the farm. When you start farming bosses, you’ll be more prepared and more strong, thus they’ll surely get easier to deal with.

Fated Hunts are a simpler way to focus farming the commodities you desire, albeit there will be fewer Mages on the battlefield to attract your target’s wrath. You’ll be responsible for the majority of the job. Fated Hunts are still the best option if you just need a few specific items and don’t want to deal with the unpredictability of a regular zone.
