Crafting in The Division allows players make weapons, masks, armor, backpacks, weapon mods, gear mods and more. Players can craft almost any type of item that can be equipped, with the exception of cosmetic items (jackets, pants, beanies, etc.).
In order to be able to Craft a piece of equipment or a Modification, the player must acquire Blueprints. The only cost involved with crafting is the Crafting Materials required by the Blueprints.
All crafting is done at the Crafting Station in the Base of Operations. At the station, you will find all the Categories of craftable items on the left side of the UI. To the right, will be the available Options under the chosen category.
Material conversion allows you to take a certain amount of materials of a specific rarity and convert them to a single piece of the same material at the next highest rarity. For example: 5 Green Fabric can be converted to 1 Blue Fabric. 5 Blue Fabric can be converted to 1 High End Fabric. By this math, you can convert 25 pieces of Green Fabric into a single piece of High End Fabric.
Recalibration is another activity where you can modify the bonuses and Attributes of your existing Gear in exchange for currency. Recalibration is unlocked in the Tech Wing upgrades, which makes the Stat Switch Perk available. Once unlocked, you may visit the Recalibration Station in the Tech Wing to effectively re-roll a stat in your equipment.
Crafting MaterialsBlueprints will require either: Fabric, Electronics, Weapon Parts or Tools in various quantities and qualities in order to be able to craft certain items. These resources can be found, purchased or obtained from deconstructing gear. The resources come in varying qualities of different rarities that are indicated by their corresponding color:
- Gray (most common)
- High-End (rarest)
Players can convert lower tier resources to higher tier ones by combining them, using Material Conversion Blueprints. For example, combining 3 Gray Fabrics will yield 1 Standard Fabric. To learn more about these resources and where to find them, please see the Crafting Materials page.
there is purple moron
Yeah but there is no purple :P
Your math is wrong, 25 pieces of green will get you 1 purple, not the high-end
