The Darktide crafting system is likely one of the extra anticipated options for the upcoming Warhammer 40K game, letting gamers tinker with their weapons and curios, but additionally do a little bit of a buildcrafting for his or her character. Update 1.0.8 provides the Shrine of the Omnissiah, which successfully capabilities just like the forge from Vermintide 2. When all of the options are in place, you’ll improve and reroll your tools.

In the event you’ve simply began taking part in the pre-order beta, you is likely to be on the lookout for some suggestions, which Darktide class to decide on, how cosmetics work, or what these little weapon symbols in your tools truly imply. Both method, here is how Warhammer 40K: Darktide crafting works, in addition to where to seek out the supplies you will want, equivalent to Plasteel and Diamantine.

Fatshark has added the primary parts of the Darktide crafting system, letting you improve your weapons and curios with the techpriest on the Shrine of the Omnissiah. This unlocks at belief stage 4 for all Rejects and you may get there by heading right from the Mourningstar spawn level and working down the hall. 

For the time being, the one factor you are able to do is ‘Consecrate’, a course of that prices Plasteel and Diamantine, and allows you to improve the rarity and energy of a weapon/curio, including requisite perks and blessings. The upper the rarity you wish to attain, the extra it can price. The max rarity is at present orange. This is the worth for every improve soar for each weapons and curios: 

  • White – Green: 150 Plasteel
  • Green – Blue: 50 Diamantine, 200 Plasteel
  • Blue – Purple: 150 Diamantine, 400 Plasteel
  • Purple – Orange: 350 Diamantine, 900 Plasteel

And here is what every rarity stage offers you by way of stat boosts and blessings for weapons, that are like traits from Vermintide:

  • White: Nothing
  • Green: One stat increase
  • Blue: One stat increase, one blessing
  • Purple: Two stat boosts, one blessing
  • Orange: Two stat boosts, two blessings

Curios do not have blessings straight away—they simply have that total quantity in stat boosts, i.e orange rarity curios have 4. You possibly can usually purchase the whole lot as much as rarity blue on the Requisitorium, and get rarity purple from Sire Melk’s Requisitorium, or as a uncommon reward for finishing missions. With that in thoughts, it most likely is not value it to improve something beneath blue rarity. When you improve, your weapon will purchase a brand new random stat and random blessing, relying on what stage you’re boosting it to. 

Where to seek out Plasteel and Diamantine

To consecrate your weapons, you first want Diamantine and Plasteel. Each could be present in missions, both in containers or simply mendacity round marked with a crafting image. The excellent news is that any crafting supplies which might be picked up rely for everybody within the squad, so that you need not try to squirrel them away for your self. It looks as if the upper the problem stage, the extra crafting supplies you’re prone to discover, and so far as I can inform, you’ll be able to’t discover any Diamantine on Sedition difficulty missions.

It’d seem to be numerous crafting supplies to farm with the intention to consecrate, however to place it in perspective, I upgraded my chainsword from blue to orange in a single night by taking part in Malice difficulty missions and retaining a watch out for Diamantine and Plasteel stashes. In the event you’re actively looking for scriptures or grimoires, you are prone to come throughout a number of crafting supplies as properly.
