The tools you need


Tools are a type of equipment that give you bonuses when executing actions from a certain skill - for example, chopping oak trees is a forestry action and you can use tools such an axe, chainsaw, shears or a range meter to decrease timers, increase random drops, etc.


Yesterday I finished the initial list of available tools for all skills and the "ingredients" required to make each of them. Some tools will be available to make permanently, while others will only be available during certain events.


In the same way as weapons and armor, each instance of a tool that is created is unique, with its own level, quality and modifiers. The higher your toolmaking level, the higher (in average) level your created tools will be. Then luck and the random number generator take their turn. Many of them will be trash to be sold to NPCs, some of them you'll use yourself or sell to other players. A few of them will have very high quality and good modifier distribution and be *very* valuable, either for your own use or to be sold to a richer player.

Good tools for your favorite skills will be the difference between long and short timers, low and high XP gained per hour, low and high resource gathering rate or production. Whether you want to buy some tools and get into the skill of your choice already equipped or make your own tools, become a master toolmaker and sell some of your greatest creations for profit, the tool market should be interesting.


As usual, I'd love to hear your comments and suggestions - here, on our Facebook, e-mail or the new Discord server for Razor Trail Survivors. Thanks again and have a nice weekend!

There will be some IAPs, but absolutely none that will give you a direct advantage over other players - weapons, tools, armor, locations and any content will be achievable to all players in the same time-frame, whether they decide to contribute financially or not.

So the player market will be essential as you won't be able to use IAPs to get good gear ;)

Grear, that's a good point. I only hope that there will not be IAP that helps in game, cause this will ruin the player market.

Welcome Valerio and thanks for the feedback! That is a valid point that we'll have to take into account. We'll try to make those limited items good, but not too good. Some balance is going to be required and we'll count on the players to help us with that.

Also, as there will be a player market for equipment, you can always try to buy anything that you missed. In the same way, if you happen to get more special gear than you believe you'll use, you can try to make a profit out of it.

Will the limited item be game changing? If so, there may be a problem with people missing some event. What do you think about?
