We have a good variety of metals in this game, we have almost all the common names of common metals.
Iron, copper, silver, gold and the legendary mythril ore for normal smithing. There's the new ores from Hillwen Tin, Nickel, Zinc and Hillwen ore.
There is also the unknown ore that is popular in alchemy.
But I feel that mining on all ends has not reached its full potential and the smithing/crafting talents and skills can be a whole lot more if there were new metals that can be made and new uses for the natural resources.
For one, in reality, copper and tin can be mixed to make bronze. So as a starter, bronze items can be useful. In history, bronze was not only used for tools and weaponry, but also used in art like sculptures.
(Speaking of sculptures, Bangor trade goods has marble, but yet there are no marble quarries that exist or any use for it. I think quarrying for stone and its uses need updates as well).
Steelmaking should also be made possible. Steel is made by various molecular bonding when iron is heated with carbon material like coal (and there is the Bangor coal in commerce). In the real world, during the time of Tuatha de Dannon steel had been created in Asia and its knowledge slowly spread. In the Middle Ages, people sought the famed Damascus steel, so if steel can be perhaps some rare metal that can be made it can bring smithing to new areas.
And not to forget about another legendary (fictional) metal. Orichalculm. Which is said by some to rival mythril and/or also has uses in alchemy.
And while we're at it with earthen raw materials, why not glassblowing. There is glass in Erinn after all. And how about gathering clay and making pottery?
And also looking at Bangor's commerce products, does anyone wonder what we can do with Highland Ore if it was a player accessible material?
- So I ask the community, do you want new metals to revive the Erinn mining/smithing/crafting industry23 votes
