The objective of the game is to build a large empire of buildings and focuses solely on crafting armors and weapons.

In Use

At the onset of the game, a young novice blacksmith is starting to learn how to make a weapon as well as the build-and-sell trade. He begins with a basic sawmill and a weapon workshop. The mills produced twigs, the main ingredients in making basic swords, which can be sold into a small price. Players can determine the prices for their crafted items.

After passing the tutorial stages, players are able to create more weapons and craft more armors and sell them. As the blacksmith continues to earn, he can soon open a steel mill which produces ore. Metals can be mixed with wood to come up with a better and sturdier sword that can be sold for a higher price. Soon, the young blacksmith can create monster-slicers and be able to fight monsters.

However, metals and woods are not the only ingredients to make great weapons especially for magical enemies. Thus, from time-to-time, he needs to visit the adventure’s guild. He will then send heroes to steal advanced materials and items from monsters. Each battle is automatic and the players do not directly fight the monsters. They can intercede through skills application. Players should uncover items that are rare to find in order for the adventure to go further and reach severe quests. They can quest repeatedly and build weapons that are top-tier for guild members.

Whilst the combats are automated, players still need to hit spells at the right time that offers a nice balance for players that are not really into SNRPGs. Furthermore, Master of Craft’s best feature is that its fast-paced compared to other SNRPGs. A quest such as the action-based dungeon is gratifying thus, helps in breaking the usual social sim’s time-gated grind. It is also possible to buy a way through the game quickly with the in-app purchases. As you produce more resources and obtain more equipment, you will also generate experience that will level you up. Gems are also awarded automatically to the town that continuously grows bigger.
