Bound By Flame Crafting Guide:

Components:

In Bound by Flame, there are several opportunities to collect loot. Whatever you do in the game will grant you loot, whether it be killing monsters, looting chests you can collect the following items that have different quality levels/

The items that can be collected are:

  • Gemstone
  • Bones
  • Metal
  • Steel
  • Leather
  • Blood
  • Hearth dust

You will find have a lot of low quality materials but finding high quality material is tough and you will need a massive amount of that to craft weapons and armours. But lower quality materials can be used to craft higher quality ones. You can also gain crafting materials from recycling unwanted materials. When you get new armor or weapon, you can destroy the old one to gain crafting items.

Talents:

Crafting not only has an effect on armor and equipment, but it also affects your talents. If you are a master in craftsmanship you will consume less materials and will also find more loot.  But remember, you won’t be able to carry unlimited equipment but certain skills will allow the player to increase the limit.

Utility:

The player can also craft utilities like explosive traps, crossbows, ammunition and potions. These consume less items and are fairly easy to craft.

Armor and Weapon:

Bound By Flame features an indepth customization system for Armor and Weapon, the system allows upgrading to the metal. You can upgrade chest, gloves, boots and helmets. Each of them can be optimized and the players can also add bonuses to them. The player can also increase resistance to magic, fire and ice. Furthermore you can even change thee guard and handles of blades, hammers, axes and swords.

How To Become A Demon:

The player is accompanied by a demon throughout the game and depending on your actions and choices, you may turn into a complete demon. This not only changes the way you look but also affects your equipment. For example, you may grow horns so in that case the player won’t be able to wear a helmet. The story will give you choices and you have to selectbetween using the demonic powers or a more heroic path.

Blacksmith Guide:

Whenever you visit villages or a settlement, you will find a lot of Blacksmiths. But you need a lot of gold to upgrade your weapons. So the best way is to craft the items you need, as good is going to be hard to come by.

Earning more gold and Levelling Up faster::

There is no faster way to level up in Bound by Flame. The game requires a lot of grinding and facing enemies head on. I personally found combining combat and completing quests the best way to level up. You can earn more gold and level up faster by:

  • Completing quests: Side and main quests.
  • Unlocking exploration feats.
  • Looting everything.
  • Selling off unwanted items.
