I wanna craft my first greensteel weapon and i have some doubts about it.

I am currently crafting using this planner:
http://perfectweb.org/ddo/crafting/base_crafting.php

And i'd like to know if it' s reliable or not, do you suggest another one maybe?

I am sure that i will create a dwarven axe cause i am a kensei and i 've come up with this effects.

Tier 1: Holy
Tier 2 : Good burst
Tier 2 bonus effect : true resurrection

I think the first two stacks just like an holy + pure good weapon (i got one already) and that s good against shroud monsters. I also lke to add metalline but i couldn' t locate it. Is Greensteel capable to bypass any DR automatically? Or i need to add in it on another tier?

Also, i am confused about the "bonus effect", cause the planner offers only one option, not a bad one, but i don 't get why it lets me select it if i have no real choice.

Last question, can i make my weapon until tier 2 bonus and use it until i decide what effects to add for tier 3?

Thanks a lot in advance for all those who will assist me in doing this :)

It used to have issues; its legit now.

I am sure that i will create a dwarven axe cause i am a kensei and i 've come up with this effects.

Tier 1: Holy
Tier 2 : Good burst
Tier 2 bonus effect : true resurrection

Metalline is a Tier III Effect that is part of "Mineral II". The weapon you've created is not capable of Mineral II. More to come on this.

Also, i am confused about the "bonus effect", cause the planner offers only one option, not a bad one, but i don 't get why it lets me select it if i have no real choice.

The Bonus Effect is based on whatever base properties you put on the weapon, based on your Foci. For example, your Focus of Positive Energy, for the Holy + Good Burst, makes it to where a Res Clickie is your option. There are many options.

Last question, can i make my weapon until tier 2 bonus and use it until i decide what effects to add for tier 3?

Yes, you can craft to Tier 2 at one date, and to Tier 3 at another point down the road.

Thanks a lot in advance for all those who will assist me in doing this :)

If you're looking for DR-Busting of Metalline + Good, you want a Mineral II.

You can get this by (By Tier 1, 2, and 3)
Holy, Acid Burst, Acid Blast (Tier 3 is Dual-Shard)
Acid, Good Burst, Acid Blast (Tier 3 is Dual-Shard)

Or a variety of other abilities, as long as the order is Earth/Positive/Dual Shard, or Positive/Earth/Dual Shard.

Using this planner, the quickest way to get the instructions you need to make this happen are:


Refresh/clear out any selections you have made.
Select your base weapons.
Without selecting anything else, scroll down to Tier III Bonus Effect - Select Aspect of Mineral II.


Notice when you do that, it'll automatically set the Tier II Bonus Effect to Aspect of Mineral I. Basically, you tell the planner "I want this type of weapon", and it'll give you all available options to make that possible, while removing options that would make it an invalid item.

Here's a link. (http://perfectweb.org/ddo/crafting/base_crafting.php?base=39&tier1=8&tier2=84&tier3=188&tier4=192&bonus1=11&bonus2=37&altC=0) I set it up as an example of a GS Min II Falchion with Acid/Good Burst/Acid Blast.

Hope this helps.

Im not the best with greensteel advice so I wont give any :D Someone will be along shortly to answer your questions.

One thing I will add.... I dont use that planner, Im sure it works fine but personally I prefered

http://www.iro.umontreal.ca/~delallea/ddo/shroud/index.php

That one. Give it a go, Ive found it infaliable. Im not saying the other one is bad... I cant compare it as I have no experiance of it but Ive been using the other one and never had any problems.

I'd just like to second the recommendation of going holy + acidburst + acidblast for a 'metalline of pure good'-like weapon. (Also known as Mineral II)

(You get slicing (1D4 dmg) and metalline, which together with holy penetrates devil and demon DR)

If you want a cheap nice weapon to get you started, I suggest to stop that one at tier 2 (http://www.iro.umontreal.ca/~delallea/ddo/shroud/cgi-bin/shroud.cgi?item=item&weapon=dwarven_axe&effects=holy,__good&altar=2), as it's already a good all-around weapon with raise dead clicky, and you won't spend any large on it.
Then you can save your larges for a Mineral II (http://www.iro.umontreal.ca/~delallea/ddo/shroud/cgi-bin/shroud.cgi?item=item&weapon=dwarven_axe&effects=mineral2_weap_,holy&groups=elemental_blast,elemental_burst&altar=3) or lightning strike (http://www.iro.umontreal.ca/~delallea/ddo/shroud/cgi-bin/shroud.cgi?item=item&weapon=dwarven_axe&effects=holy,lightning_strike_&groups=elemental_blast,elemental_burst&altar=3) one.

First of all, thanks for everyone who replied to my help request, especially to TheDearLeader and Doop, i really appreciated your posts. :)

I' d never imagined a system so deeply complex for items crafting, i guess it' s nearly impossible to craft withou the help of the "planners"...


Metalline is a Tier III Effect that is part of "Mineral II". The weapon you've created is not capable of Mineral II. More to come on this.

I' m just curious, what do you mean by "More to come on this"?


Go positive, earth, positive, earth.

+5 Green Steel Khopesh (1d10), Holy, Acid Burst, Acid Blast
Stoneskin (2/day)
Metalline, Keen/Impact, Slicing (+1d4 damage vs. targets that can bleed), Mineral (+8 Hardness, +80 Durability)

And the winner is: :D

I think this thread will help more people wanting to understand the GS crafting :)

The "More to come" was the part of my post that was outside of the quotation box, explaining exactly what a Min II was. So... it came, it went. :D Glad you got your knowledge on.
