Elden Ring: How To Craft Items & Get Recipes

Ran out of arrows while playing Elden Ring? You can finally Craft them along with many other items.

The ability to craft in Elden Ring is perhaps the best feature in any souls game. This is a much-needed feature, as you can finally save some time that you spent by going to the merchants for your ammo needs. But while you can craft there are some things you should know about like the crafting Kit and cookbook recipes. So let us quickly take a look at this Crafting guide for Elden Ring to see how these new mechanics exactly work.

You can craft items using the Item Crafting Tab. Although it is important to know that you won’t be able to craft until you get the Crafting Kit. We will get to where you find the crafting kit in a bit. Let us check how to craft items now.

  1. Open the Item Crafting Tab.
  2. On top, you will see icons of the different types of items you can craft e.g consumables, weapon ammo, etc.
  3. Tab over to the type of item you want to craft.
  4. In the menu below it will show you all the items you can craft.
  5. The ones that are greyed out cannot be crafted. This could be due to a lack of resources.
  6. Finally, choose the item that is lit up and craft it.

Remember you will need both the resources and the recipe in order to craft the needed item. So even if you happen to have the resources but don’t have the recipe for it you won’t be able to craft it.
