Crafting in Eternal Return is how players can create more advanced weapons, armors, or items from various materials. All craftable items require two other items to be made, where the items could either be equipped or be inside the inventory. When a character starts crafting, they visibly channel a crafting animation and make sound effects. The total time of channeling depends on the rarity of the item being crafted. Once the crafting is completed, the item appears on a free available empty equipment slot, onto a stack if the item is stackable and exists in the inventory, or the first available empty inventory slot. If a character is damaged during the crafting channel, the channel is canceled and must be restarted.
