[Art RPG] Weapon crafting

Weapons crafting blog image

In your travels across the Paperverse, you'll meet many foes and challenges. You can create both custom armor and weapons for each of your characters. Unlike armor, weapons do not have different craftable power levels. Elemental weapons automatically level up in power alongside their wielder.

To craft a weapon you'll need both the needed items and complete a creative challenge.

Weapon Elements

Just like your character has a latent element, weapons can have elemental alignments too! The element you pick will provide an increase in damage aligned with the weapon's element. Each weapon can only be aligned with one element.

To align your weapon with a specific element, add the corresponding Elemental Pearl when crafting.

Elemental Weapon Crafting Recipe

Here are the items you will need in your inventory to craft the weapon.

Weapon Appearance

In order to finalize the crafting of your Elemental Weapon, you must complete a creative challenge. You will be drawing or writing a piece that shows what your character's Elemental Weapon is.

The primary color of your weapon should match the color of Aster you use to construct it. Otherwise, your weapon's appearance is up to you! We would recommend matching any elemental parts of your weapon to the element you are assigning to your weapon. You can choose from the weapon types listed below, or make your own weapon.

  • Sword
  • Dagger
  • Staff
  • Pike
  • Gun
  • Whip
  • Battleaxe
  • Bow or Crossbow
  • Boomerang or Throwing Stars
  • ...or make your own!
