To make it easier for us to understand what goes into crafting an item, I'm proposing the following system as a forum standard for describing crafted items. Please note - if you don't know how crafting works, you won't find any useful info here - this is a shorthand for people who know how it works already.
For each upgrade (in order - Invasion, Subjugation, Devastation), list the 3 components, abbreviated to one character as follows:
Focus of Positive Energy: +
Focus of Negative Energy: -
Focus of Air: A
Focus of Fire: F
Focus of Earth: E
Focus of Water: W
Gem of Escilation: E
Gem of Opposition: O
Gem of Dominion: D
Etheral Essence: E
Material Essence: M
Other ingredients (Energy Cells, Shards of Power) are always the same, so can be left out.
To name an item, list the ingredients used at the altar of Invasion (Focus, then Gem, then Essence), then, if it was upgraded at Subjugation, put a double slash (//) then list the Subjugation ingredients, then // then Devastation if appropriate.
A +5 acid green steel longsword produced by an Inferior Focus of Earth, a Cloudy Gem of Dominion and a Diluted Material Essence is an EDM longsword. If it's further upgraded at the Subjugation altar with a Focus of Positive Energy, a Gem of Opposition and a Material Essence, it becomes an EDM//+OM longsword.
And, if you are feeling particularly juvenile, you can make a WEE//WEE//WEE item.
This system is simple, uniquely defining and I propose it as a forum standard.
