RLCraft Guide and Tips – OP Items (Part 2)
by Lynqoid on Fri Dec 20 2019.
RLCraft is known for its challenging gameplay, and thanks to the addition of the Lycanites Mod, its fierce mobs. However, it’s not all doom and gloom, RLCraft and the Lycanites Mobs mod offers the ability for players to build OP Items such as weapons and mining equipment that makes the game a bit more rewarding, and a lot more fun.
The journey to craft these tools is quite simple, but there are a few things you need to do. First, you need the builder skill at a minimum of level 6, any less than that, and you won’t be able to use any of the equipment.
When starting making OP items in RLCraft, the first thing you need is the equipment forge, beginning with the Lesser Equipment Forge (level one), the Greater Equipment Forge (level two) or, if you are hoping to make the most OP item in all of RLCraft, the Master Equipment Forge (level three). Recipes are shown below, although they are relatively easy to make, and from our playtests, and in the video below, you can clearly see how easy it is to find lots of veins of the required Iron and Diamond needed to upgrade your Equipment Forge with little to no work. The higher the level of parts you plan to use to craft (more on that below!) then the higher tiered Equipment Forge you would need.
OP RLCraft Mob Parts
Lycanite mobs drop body parts that range from level one to level three. The higher the level of the parts, the higher the level Equipment Forge you will need to use.
OP Item Crafting in RLCraft
Following the tutorial in the video, you can see that making a level one tool is very easy. All you need is one Wooden Rod (Level 1), one Wooden Hilt (Level 1). Upgrade them both to Iron with a total of 4 Iron Ingots. Adding a Geonach Spear (Level 1) which can easily be found by killing Geonach’s which spawn in dark, unlit areas underground. You can put this all together in the Lesser Equipment Forge to create a Pickaxe that breaks a total of 3 blocks wide, two blocks high and five blocks deep in one go, although it only breaks the same vein of resources.
Possibly one of the coolest looking and functioning additions is the Weapons, you can create very powerful weapons using Cinder Blades that shoot infinite fire, and provide a whole host of other benefits to you. By killing mobs from the Lycanites Mobs Mod, you will be able to craft custom weapons with unique stats and custom traits that can make your RL Craft experience much more bearable.
How to Build Tools?
When you open the Equipment Forge for the first time, it can be quite confusing, but its actually really simple with a little time and understanding. Use the forge like any crafting table, you have a basic slot that has an outline and other slots that you can put parts in only after you fill the basic slot.
The basic slot (with the outline) is for the “base components” which are the Rod or Iron Rod (covered above). After that, you can put a head and a pommel on it, although pommels are not required!
Similar to the base components, the head can be crafted. This then allows you to place the corresponding weapon part in the forge. The current part types are:
If you are unsure which part you have, you can hover over the part. It will tell you which type it is, and you can build a corresponding head.
Some fun combinations we recommend:
We had a bit of fun playing around with these tools, and have some fun combinations that you should try. Obviously, all of these combinations are better at level 3, but even the level 1 version is just as awesome!
Try combining an Iron Rod, Djin Cloud Pommel, Darkling Head and Cinder Blade. As a result, you will create a weapon that makes attacked mobs levitate, Leech health from the mobs. The best bit, it will also set the mob on fire!
If you use a higher tier of the Cinder Blade, then it will also have a flamethrower type effect.
Do you have any recommended combinations? Let us know in the comments!
