the controls and movement are smooth as butter tight and so satisfying. this game goes right up there with 64 sunshine and galaxy taking the super fun 3d mario mechanics and refining them and then going all in on the level design and exploration elements.
these instructors also sell the recipes you need for refining your materials. there you may take the quest(s) to raise each gathering skill past 20. each quest requires you to gather 20 of the most basic material of that particular skill in its unrefined form: ash wood zinc ore or mountain demon grass.
salt flour polishing powder legien ore and water (though this is free) should always be in plentiful supply. you don't have much money as yet but when you do make sure to stock up on the cheaper items as you will use them for many recipes. as soon as you make one item there will be a tutorial on properties.
in refining copper the metal is melted down in a reverberatory furnace in a more or less oxidizing atmosphere and then further subjected to an oxidizing smelting in order to eliminate the common impurities most of which have a stronger affinity for oxygen than has copper.in these operations some of the copper is oxidized to cuprous oxide and dissolved by the metal bath.
refining improves the conductivity of copper by lowering the electrical resistance.resistance is like friction to electricity and it causes energy to be lost as heat in poorly conducting wires. improved conductivity means more energy is delivered to the desired destination when you flip that switch or turn that dial.
copper ore that is rich in sulfides is processed via pyrometallurgy while copper ore that is rich in oxides is refined through hydrometallurgy. read on to learn more about copper-refining processes.
