Processing Guide

Processing is an easy life skill to get into and every player will process materials at some point. It is an afk activity. You simply set up the processing and it will automatically continue until you run out of materials, or go overweight.

To begin, open the processing window by pressing L. You will have several processing options to choose from along the top.

I highly recommend checking bdocodex to search for any items that you aren’t sure about. You can also check the crafting notes in-game by presssing F2.

Icon Processing Use
Shaking Used to shake two materials together to combine a new ingredient
Example: Corn Flour + Mineral Water = Corn Dough
Grinding Grind up to 2 materials to make a new ingredient.
Example: Corn > Corn Flour
Example: Rough Diamond > Diamond
Chopping Used to chop any type of wood to create higher tier materials
Example: Birch Plank > Birch Plywood
Drying Used to dry fish to preserve them for cooking
Used to create higher tier hide/fur or other materials such as cheese
Example: Lizard Hide > Hard Hide
Filtering Used to create higher tier feather/plumes
Used to create Purified Water
Example: Bottle of River Water > Purified Water
Heating Used to create higher tier metals
Used with many other materials to create new materials
Example: Iron Ore > IMelted Iron Shard
Example: Lobster > Glue
Repair Used to repair item durability
(NOT USED)

without needing an alchemy tool
Example: Giant’s Draught
Simple Cooking Used to cook certain ingredients
without needing a cooking utensil
Example: Exquisite Cron Meal
Imperial Cooking Used to package meals for imperial delivery
Imperial Alchemy Used to package alchemy items for imperial delivery
Guild Processing Can only be used by certain guild members to
create items required for Guild Crafting
Manufacture Used to create various items such as:
Furniture, Manos gear, Trina Axe, etc.

Material Tiers and Knowledge

Some materials such as timber, ores and hides, can be processed multiple times. Each time they are processed they go up to the next tier.

The higher your processing life skill, the more materials you can obtain.

For example:

  • Birch Timber x5 > Birch Plank x1 – 4
  • Birch Plank x10 > Birch Plywood x1 – 4
  • Birch Plywood x10 + Plywood Hardener x3 > Sturdy Birch Plywood x1 – 2

Different tiers also have different processing speeds:

  • Tier 1 and Tier 2 wood: lowest processing time = 6 seconds
  • Zinc Ore and Tier 2 metals: lowest processing time = 6 seconds
  • Other Tier 1 ores: lowest processing time = 9 seconds
Tier 1 Tier 2 Tier 3 Tier 4
iconTimber iconPlank iconPlywood iconSturdy Plywood
iconOre iconMelted Shard iconIngot iconPure Crystal
iconHide iconSoft/Tough/Hard Hide iconFine Soft/Tough/Hard Hide iconSupreme Soft/Tough/Hard Hide

To process higher tiers you need to gain specific knowledge first.

  • Tier 1 > Tier 2 can be processed without any knowledge
  • Tier 2 > Tier 3 requires Beginner knowledge for that type of processing
  • Tier 3 > Tier 4 requires Skilled knowledge for that type of processing

For example:

  • If you want to process Birch Plank (T2) > Birch Plywood (T3) you need Beginner Chopping Knowledge
  • If you want to process Iron Ingot (T3) > Pure Iron Crystal (T4) you need Skilled Heating Knowledge

You can check if you have the knowledge by going to the Knowledge window (H) > Life Skill > Certificates

You can also find the questline in your Quest window (O) > Suggested > [Certificate] Training Paradigm (beginner knowledge) and [Certificate] Skilled Paradigm (skilled knowledge)

How to Mass Process (Processing Mastery)

I recommend taking a look at our Life Skill Mastery guide for a full breakdown of the mastery gear, how to obtain it and how many points each piece gives.

Processing Mastery allows you to process a larger amount of materials at once and takes around 60 to 90 seconds. The Mass Process button will not be displayed when a Processing Stone is not equipped. You will need a Processing Stone for the type of processing you are doing. For example, if you are chopping wood, you will need a Processing Stone – Energy equipped in your life skill tool slot.

Processing Processing Stone
Chopping iconProcessiong Stone – Energy
Heating iconProcessiong Stone – Lava
Grinding iconProcessiong Stone – Vitality
Filtering iconProcessiong Stone – Wind
Drying iconProcessiong Stone – Sun
Shaking iconProcessiong Stone – Lake

The processing stone must be full durability to use. Durability is not used when using a processing stone, this simply means you must fully repair the max durability after enhancing to be able to use the stone.

I recommend buying a cheap Loggia Processing stone (costs 1 million silver) from Camellia Loggia or Zaaira. Even with low processing mastery it is quicker to mass process if you can.

Below is a full table of how your Processing mastery effects the amount of items you can mass process:






For example, an adventurer with Processing Mastery 2 will be able to do 10 Chopping with one Mass Process, while an adventurer with Processing Mastery 400 will be able to do 30 Chopping with one Mass Process, resulting in more items within the same time. Items consumed for 1 Mass Process equals (Items consumed for 1 General Processing) x (No. of Processing done for Mass Processing according to Processing Mastery).

Processing Gear/Buffs

Using processing success rate buffs, you can increase the speed that you process materials.

The base rate of success is 67%.

To increase your success rate you can use a +3 or +4 Silver Embroidered Craftsman’s Clothing, a Sharp Alchemy Stone and the either the Pearl costume or a Couscous if you don’t have the costume. With these combined you should reach 100% success rate.

If you are using mastery clothing for mass proccessing, then you can use the pearl costume, verdure draught, seafood cron and a Sharp Alchemy Stone instead.

The Karki/Venecil costume also has a unique effect which allows you to process materials straight from your storage into your inventory.

FAQ

Should I use mass processing or regular processing?

Share this

You should always use mass processing if possible. It is faster than regular processing even if you have very low processing mastery. Loggia processing stones only cost 1 million silver to buy.

Should I use Mastery Clothes or Silver Embroidered Clothes?

Share this

You should use Mastery Clothing.

Silver Embroidered Clothes can be better for EXP but not always. Check out this image. This shows which is best to use for processing EXP only.

  • Green cells = Mastery Clothes are better
  • White cells =Silver Embroidered Clothes are better

How long does it take to process wood/ore?

Share this
  • Tier 1 and Tier 2 wood: lowest processing time = 6 seconds
  • Zinc Ore and Tier 2 metals: lowest processing time = 6 seconds
  • Other Tier 1 ores: lowest processing time = 9 seconds

What processing level do I need for maximum proc rates?

Share this

The higher your processing life skill, the more materials you can obtain.

For example:

  • Birch Timber x5 > Birch Plank x1 – 4
  • Birch Plank x10 > Birch Plywood x1 – 4
  • Birch Plywood x10 + Plywood Hardener x3 > Sturdy Birch Plywood x1 – 2

To gain the most amount of materials when you process, you will need Artisan 6 for wood and Master 1 for metals.

Does Mass processing affect the processing proc rates?

Share this

No!

  • You will still get around the same amount of procs whether you are using regular or mass processing.
  • Most recipes will proc between 1-4 materials (2.5 materials average).
  • Processing mastery doesn’t affect how many procs you get or the proc rate

What is the base processing success rate?

Share this

The base rate of success is 67%.

To increase your success rate you can use a +3 or +4 Silver Embroidered Craftsman’s Clothing, a Sharp Alchemy Stone and the either the Pearl costume or a Couscous if you don’t have the costume. With these combined you should reach 100% success rate.

If you are using mastery clothing for mass proccessing, then you can use the pearl costume, verdure draught, seafood cron and a Sharp Alchemy Stone instead.

How do I use the processing costume to process from my storage?

Share this

First make sure your costume is equipped, then go to a storage keeper and select the “Process” option from your warehouse. The processing window will then pop up and you can select the material(s) you would like to process.

The processed materials will go into your inventory so you will stop processing when you go overweight.
