Crafting Skill and What it Does in ARK: Survival Evolved

The Crafting Skill is one of your character’s stats that you upgrade with allocation points after every level gain. The higher the stat level, the higher your Crafting speed is. Moreover, as you level it, food, weapon, and armor crafted from blueprints in your inventory also improve. Though it doesn’t work with basic engrams.

Crafting Skill Levels in ARK: Survival Evolved

Every point you allocate to your Crafting Skill adds 0.5% to the maximum damage or armor of the item you decide to craft. This means that every level has a higher chance of creating better weapons and tools. 

Is It Worth Spending Level Up Points on Crafting Skill? 

There are six levels of gear quality;

  • Primitive
  • Ramshackle
  • Apprentice
  • Journeyman
  • Mastercraft
  • Ascendant

This has created a strain between players and the Crafting Skill. Many avoid adding points to Crafting Skill and focus on more important stats, such as Weight, Food, Health, and others.

Nevertheless, the Crafting Skill is still an important asset. Maybe not in the very beginning of the game as the levels are low, but as you progress, it will add more percentage to the items’ stats, increasing them by a significant amount.
