New Crafting Tool Key Items
New key items are available for purchase with Guild Points at all the crafting (and fishing) guilds. All the ones from crafting guilds are required in order to make some brand new recipes that were added.
What do these things do, anyway?
Having one of these key items lets you craft recipes that wouldn't be otherwise available. There are new recipes available from the Sept 13 patch that require having one of these keyitems to craft them. Once you have a Guild Point keyitem you can use it to make as many recipes as you like; it is a tool that unlocks new recipes, not an ingredient. Once you have the tool you can keep it and make as many of the recipes as you wish. You can get as many different Guild Point keyitems as you like, if you acquire enough Guild Points. Of course, you can only be commissioned with one guild at a time to gain and spend points, so this will take a while.
New recipes? Like what?
The cooking guild has a bundle of new sushi recipes that all require Raw Fish Handling. Alchemy has a lot of new anima-related recipes that require Anima Synthesis. Fishing has Frog Fishing for some of the newer amphibians, and Woodworking crafters with the Lumberjack keyitem can do new higher level recipes that create more lumber per log synth'd. The rest of the recipes require the Purification and Ensorcellment keyitems, which are used to make certain special crafting materials that are then utilized to make all that new Enchantment equipment and weapons. These new crafting materials are listed below, near the bottom. Recipes that utilize these new crafting tools are listed below; you can also use the recipe search to pull up recipes that require a specific crafting tool.
How do I get these tools?
You purchase them with Guild Points, which are obtained by turning in specific crafted items to the Guildworker's Union Representative at the respective guilds. Look for the NPC at your guild with the funky apron on, and they'll explain it all.
