Default

Concentrate - Boost rate of not using mana at a certain percentage.
Like the skill says. You will need to must this at Lv5 for a prerequisite. Though it may seem pointless, it's actually helpful. Allm made this so you can help with mana costs.
Battle/Hybrid Builds - 5
Craft Builds - 0
Pros : This at least helps mana at some point.
Cons : Low percentage.


.......
concentrations the best skill for pure craft builds
its only 2sec cd.. regen does nothing, 1k mp is almost useless
concentration is 20% NO mp cost

unless of course ur rich and just supply ur arta with ZS gear, having 14k mp is more than enough





Refining Section

*No Pure Battle Arta should be getting any of the Refining skills.
**Some Craft Arta Builds may not use all of the Refining skills or Workmanship skills. Invest any other points into battling because the reagents are obtained by Stage/Myth. Due to the points needed for battling, you may not get all of the Refining skills.
***You can grab all of these reagents through spamming Rodesia boxes from Episode 7. Tantalunite, Ruthenium and Adamantium can be obtained through the same way or from the fishing bead quests.



Zephyr Stone Transmutation - Create materials through refining the Stone of West Wind.
Basic explanation, you need the Stone of West Wind to either make regular Fortification Stones, or 1 or 2 Zircons. Useless, unless you need the Zircons. Zircons are actually needed for some armor/weapon/item crafts.
At Levels 1-6, you will create Zircon x2, Zircon x1 or Fortification Stone x10. Each level will reduce the % to make Fortification Stones, while raising Zircon x1. At Lv7 it will stop making Fortification Stones and make Zircon x1 at 99%. At Lv8-9 will reduce Zircon x1 chances and raise Zircon x2 chances. At max Level 10 you will create Zircon x2 at 95% or Zircon x3 at 5%.
So with that said, do not max unless you need the Zircons, which is unlikely. You can invest 1 point as a Craft Arta to get a few Fortification Stones, but would you really need the item just to make x10 Fort. Stones when you can simply get it from stage?
All Builds - 0, 1, or Max



Eye of the Seas Transmutation - Create materials through refining the Eye of the Ocean.
Same % chances applies as the Stone of the West Wind, only you use the Eye of the Ocean and you will create Blue Sapphires or Fortification Stones. As a Craft Arta, max only if you need the Blue Sapphires, used for some crafts in the game. 1 point if you feel lazy to get Fortification Stones from stage.
All Builds - 0, 1, or Max



Poison Crystal Transmutation - Create materials through refining the Essence of Deadly Poison.
Same refining stuff applies, only you use Essence of Deadly Poison and create Ambers or Fort. Stones. 1 point again, if you feel lazy to hunt Fortification Stones in Shabby Bags that come by monster drops so easily.
All Builds - 0, 1, or Max



Light of Holy Spirit Transmutation - Create materials through refining the Light of Holy Spirit.
Same stuff, only you use Light of Holy Spirit and make Rubies or Fort. Stones. Rubies are used to make Unbinds, so it'd be a fine profit.
Craft Builds - Max



Thunder Stone Transmutation - Create materials through refining the Thunder Stone.
Same stuff...using Thunder Stone and make Black Crystals/Fort stones instead...and you should know how many point choices...
Craft Builds - 0, 1, Max



Rich Soil Transmutation - Create materials through refining the Dirt of Prosperity.
More same stuff...except you make Sapphires. Sapphires are used to make Unbinds.
Craft Builds - Max



Cryolite Transmutation - Create materials through refining the One Hundred Year Cryolite.
Make Toddmarines.
Craft Builds - 0, 1, Max - Max only if you want to make small amounts of gold bit by bit, but there are plenty other ways to make gold.



Lava Stone Refinement - Create materials through refining the Lava Stone.
Make Emeralds. Emeralds can sell for about 1 Gold, so you might make some money out of this. 2 Emeralds per 1 Lava Stone at max...you can make 2G. Emeralds are also used for a few crafts.
Craft Builds - 0, 1, Max - Max if you want to make small amounts of gold bit by bit, but there are plenty other useful ways to make gold.



Cursed Stone Refinement - Create materials through refining the Cursed Stone.
Make Diamonds. Diamonds also can sell near for 1 Gold. Diamonds are also used to make Unbinds.
Craft Builds - Max


that part is just -_-
learn which jewels are best money before suggesting ppl to max diamonds
