Tinted Ingredients and their Skill Requirements
Tinted Metal Weapons and Armour
There are 6 types of metal (other than iron) that can be crafted into weapons and armour. The following table outlines the extra skill required to craft tinted metal items:

Tinted Wooden Weapons and Shields
There are 5 types of wood (other than plain wood) that can be crafted into weapons and armour. The following table outlines the extra skill required to craft tinted wooden items:
|Wood tint||Extra skill required||Weapons||Armour|
Eg: to craft a plain staff requires 4% skill in woodcrafting; to craft an ash staff requires 14% skill; an Ebony staff requires 19% skill, and so on.
NB: venomous wood armours and ebony wood weapons cannot be crafted.

Magic Weapons and Armour
As with tints, crafted magic items require more skill than non-magic. To craft a magic item, you need the corresponding magic raw material - eg to craft a shortsword+1 you need an ingot of attack+1. This is further illustrated in the following table:
|longsword + 1||ingot of attack + 1|
|staff + 2||log of attack + 2|
|chain coif + 1||ingot of defense + 1|
|copper heater + 3||copper ingot of defense + 3|
|blackrock full helm of strength + 15||blackrock ingot of strength + 15|
Obtaining the Raw Materials - the Wand of Deconstruction
While non-magical logs and ore (ie they do not have a + on them) may be harvested in the wild, magic raw materials can only be retrieved from existing magic items by use of a Wand of Deconstruction.
The following table shows the premiums for magic weapons:
|Weapon +||Extra skill required|
Eg: to craft a plain staff require 4% skill in woodcrafting. To craft a staff+1 requires 12%, and to craft a staff+5 requires 44% in woodcrafting.
The following table shows the premiums for items that add a +defense:
|Defense +||Extra skill required|
Eg: to craft a plain full helm requires 6% in armourer. To craft full helm + 3 requires 36% in armourer, and so on.
Stat bonus items
The following table shows the premiums for items that add a + to a stat (ie dexterity, strength and intelligence):
|Stat+||Extra skill required|
Eg: to craft a plain platemail requires 29% in armourer. To craft platemail of strength + 10 requires 79% in armourer, and so on.
Tinted Magic Items
Magic items that have a tint may be crafted too. The minimum skill is the minimum skill required to craft the plain item PLUS the requirement for the tint PLUS the requirement for the enchantment.
|Item||Minimum skill required||Ingredients|
|silver platemail||44% (+15%)||12 silver ingots|
|platemail of dexterity + 10||79% (+50%)||12 ingots of dexterity + 10|
|silver platemail of dexterity + 10||94% (+50% + 15%)||12 silver ingots of dexterity + 10|
Supertints / Mythic Item Crafting
It's possible to add yet another extra tint layer to weapons and armor, to enhance it even further. It can be applied to both normal items and artifacts, regardless of existing enhancements, but requires top expertise in many skills, as well as rare materials.
These additional enhancements are called "mythic supertints", and the process to apply them to items is described in Mythic_Item_Crafting page.
