NPCs have come to towns across Erinn, their packs full of all sorts of raw materials, ready to give everyone a boost to their crafting prowess. Even Fine materials can be obtained through these helpful little entrepreneurs, so get ready to put your life skills to the test!

    Alright, so these NPCs sell materials, right?
    And these materials expire, right?
    Here's something neat.

    When you try to make a product and fail, many production/refining skills will let you keep some of the materials. Like if you try to refine some ore fragments into an ingot but fail, you might keep some fragments. Turns out the game doesn't handle it exactly that way. The way the game handles it, it always takes the materials when you attempt, and if you fail it may refund you. Meaning the game generates more of the base materials upon failure.

    And these generated materials don't have timers on them.

    So both successes (fragment x5 -> ingot x1) and fails (fragment x5 -> fragment x0~4) produce non-timed items. This holds true for all the skills, not just Refining. I used emerald cores from the gift boxes to make some non-expiring Hillwen Alloy for example.

    So even if your skills are already R1, this event can help you stock up on specific materials for use.
