Fiesta Online Crafting Guide
After creating your character in Fiesta Online, you have the option of five crafting professions. You may learn two per character.
Stones, Potions or Scrolls
Material Composition or Decomposition
To choose your crafting skills
You can now access your crafting skills any time by going to the Alchemy tab in your skills window, and right-clicking the crafting skill you want to use. You can also place your crafting skills on your hotkey bars for easy access.
Open your crafting window for either of your crafting skills to see:
Example: Crafting window for Scroll Production
Example: A Skill Master’s Alchemy shop window. Mousing over a recipe icon will show you its name and required EXP (Required Skill Level)
TIP: Quick leveling Stone, Potion and Scroll Production skills See my video [“Leveling Alchemy/Production Skills the Easy Way”]
If you prefer, you can read how to level your skills below. After choosing your crafting skills and setting out on your Fiesta adventure, you will find materials as your kill monsters and pick up their loot. You may now be able to craft a small number of items, however only using the materials you find from monsters will be a very slow way to level your crafting skills. You can start seriously upgrading your crafting professions once you get to Elderine, Fiesta’s second town. In Elderine, you can purchase the lowest-tier crafting materials from Item Merchant Nina in bulk, and begin crafting large amounts of Tier 1 items (recipes listed under “1Step” in your crafting window). This is the fastest and cheapest way to level your crafting skills.
Item Merchant Nina at F8 in Elderine will be your best friend for leveling Stone/Potion/Scroll Production. Fill up your inventory with low tier materials (leave one space for produced items), start crafting…and wait. Afk. Have a cup of tea. Or something.
Leveling Material Composition & Decomposition skills
TIP: The most convenient way to level these skills is in tandem – decomposing one item, then composing it again and vice-versa, so if you choose one of these skills on a character, it does make things easier if you also pick the other.
When you begin these skills, you are limited to composing and decomposing Copper Ore. To get started, you will need to mine some ore in Cave of Echo, which can be accessed from Forest of Tides, Sand Beach or Sea of Greed. You will need a Pickaxe (can be bought from Item Merchant NPCs), and some patience.
Once you’re satisfied with the amount of ore you have, you will need to purchase a bunch of Alchemy Stone from Item Merchant Nina. They are required for Tier 1 composition/decomposition. You can now begin leveling your Material Composition/Decomposition.
TIP: To avoid having to buy materials to compose/decompose, save any items that you’re not going to use for crafting other things instead of selling them. You can use these to grind your composition/decomposition.
TIP: Once you get Material Composition to 200 EXP and above, you can start buying low quality materials from Item Merchant Nina in Elderine to compose.
Upon reaching 200 EXP in Material Decomposition, you can start buying medium quality materials to decompose from Item Merchant Vellon in Uruga.
TIP: Compose & decompose the highest tier materials you can – they’ll give the most EXP.
Crafting materials are obtained by
TIP: When gathering from nodes, a moving green bar with a yellow line inside it will appear. Click the yellow line when the moving green bar hits it to instantly gather the items, instead of waiting for your character to finish gathering. Doing this also sometimes yields a larger number of materials.
List of items from gathering nodes
Herbs: Sage, Geranium, Herb Root, Herb Leaf, Herb Stem
Mushrooms: Mushroom (Low Quality), Toadstool (Low Quality)
Wood: Sap (Low Quality), Firewood, Fine Firewood
Ore: Copper Ore (Low Quality), Copper Ore, Copper Ore (High Quality), Topaz
Herbs: Rosemary, Vilolet
Mushrooms: Mushroom, Toadstool
Ore: Silver Ore (Low Quality), Silver Ore, Silver Ore (High Quality), Ruby
Herbs: Basil, Ramsear
Mushrooms: Mushroom (High Quality), Toadstool (High Quality)
Wood: Sap (High Quality)
Ore: Gold Ore (Low Quality), Gold Ore, Gold Ore (High Quality), Sapphire
Herbs: Marigold, Eucalyptus
Mushrooms: Mushroom (Highest Quality), Toadstool (Highest Quality)
Wood: Sap (Highest Quality)
Maps with the best locations to gather each type of material. The locations marked are not the only places you can gather these materials, but they have the highest concentrations of nodes. NOTE: Listed on the maps are the regular drops from gathering nodes. Please note that one tier higher than the regular Tier drop can drop, but it is rare (e.g. tier 1 mushrooms have a chance of dropping tier 2 mushroom items, but it will not happen frequently). NOTE: There is currently no map in which you can specifically gather Tier 4 (Highest Quality) materials from nodes . You can only try the Tier 3 nodes and hope that they drop Tier 4 materials, or gather Tier 3 materials and use Material Composition to turn them into Tier 4 materials.

Tier 1 (Low Quality)
Tier 3 (High Quality)
I have not included maps for mining ore, as each tier of ore can be found all over their respective caves and maps are not required to find good gathering spots – the cave fields are literally full of ore nodes:
Tier 1 – Copper Ore (Low Quality), Copper Ore, Copper Ore (High Quality) and Topaz – Cave of Echo
Tier 2 – Silver Ore (Low Quality), Silver Ore, Silver Ore (High Quality) and Ruby – Cave of Wind
Tier 3 – Gold Ore )Low Quality), Gold Ore, Gold Ore (High Quality) and Sapphire – Gold Cave

Knowing the chat commands is useful for any trader:
“/s” to Shout to everyone in the map
“/p” to talk to your Party
“/w playername” to Whisper a player
“/r” to reply to the last Whisper
“/g” to talk in Guild chat
“/a” to talk in Academy chat
“S> ” – selling
“wts” – want to sell
“B> ” – buying
“wtb” – want to buy
“LF” – looking for
“T>” – trading
“wtt” – want to trade
How to Trade
There are three main ways to buy and sell items/services:
Vendors can be used to sell and purchase items. You can’t play or move your character while you have a vendor open, but you can use the chat.
The Party Matching Registration can be used to create an ad in a window which every player in your server can access and read. Your ad will last for 30 minutes, or until you log out. You can increase the time your ad stays on the Party Matching window by “ReRegistering” – re-typing your ad then hitting the “ReRegister” button. This will reset your ad’s timer.
NOTE: If you want to sell consumables through Party Matching, you will probably need to sell them at a discounted price and/or in bulk – otherwise it is more convenient for players to just get them from a vendor in town.
You can Shout by typing “/s” in the chatbox, then your message.
From level 10 to 60, if you are in an Academy you can receive rewards each time you level, often a combination of silver/gold and items. Go to a Guild Manager in any town (shown on the map as a blue flag), choose “Academy”, then “Check Ranking” and join one of the highest ranked academies. They will most often have the best rewards.
Joining an academy will give you a nice base amount of money that you can use to fund leveling your production skills, or buying and reselling ventures.
Once you have found an academy to join, open the Community window by pressing “F”. Click the green Guild Academy tab, click the “Enroll Academy” button and type the name of the guild whose academy you wish to join exactly as it appeared on the academy list.
To check your academy’s reward settings, click “Academy” at a Guild Manager, then “Reward Setting” or “Item Reward Setting”. You can only check these after joining an academy.
First, and with the least risk, on the list of moneymaking options is crafting items with your Production Skills. Not only will it save you money as you won’t have to buy consumables from other players, you can be one of the players selling them, often at quite a good price.
Now, you can only have 2 production skills per character. To get the most out of all your loot drops, I suggest making 3 characters. One for Material Composition & Material Decomposition, and two more for whichever combination of Stone, Scroll and Potion production you prefer.
You will want to level up your Stone Production skill to Tier 2 (or 3 if you prefer as you will need to get there eventually), and your Scroll and Potion Production to Tier 3 as soon as possible, as these are the most profitable item tiers.
It’s also a good idea to level up your Material Decomposition so you can gather higher-tier materials and decompose them into lower-tier materials, and one high tier item will yield several of the lower tier items (e.g. 1 High Quality Leather will yield 5 Normal Quality Leather). This way you can spend less time gathering, and utilize any high tier items you find instead of saving them for later and taking up storage space.
Once you have leveled your production skills sufficiently, here are ways you can go about getting the items you need to created consumables to sell. Listed below are the most profitable items to sell, and how you can find the items to make them.
These items are the most profitable because they have the easiest to find materials, and they are in the highest demand as mid-level players use them.
Item Merchant NPCs
Medium Quality materials (except Beast Tails) can be bought from the Item Merchant in Uruga. High Quality materials can be bought from the Item Merchant in Alberstol Ruins.
Vending for Materials
You can set up a vendor to purchase materials from other players. All you need is one or more of the item you want to purchase already in your inventory.
See the [Farming] section of this guide for where to farm your crafting materials.
Kingdom Quest Rewards
There are two ways to go about this:
1. Checking out stores when you feel like it, and purchasing any items you think you can sell for more. The best items to do this with are consumables like potions, stones and scrolls that are being sold for less than market price.
You can also do this with equipment, but it is more risky as equipment is a harder sell; people will always need consumables, but it may take a while to find buyers for specific pieces of equipment.
2. Purchase Vendors
You can set up purchase vendors to buy certain items from other players at a low price, then set up a selling vendor later to resell these items.
This is often done with town return scrolls (namely Uruga and Alberstol Ruins), and stones.
Farming for Equipment
Players often farm dungeon bosses for the equipment that only drops from them – boss weapons, blue armor and boss rings. This can be a frustrating way to make money as you will often get no drops, or drops with bad stats which you can’t sell for much at all. However, with patience, you may get drops that have amazing stats and will sell for a lot.
To farm bosses, you will need to spend a bit of money to get started, on items such as:
Farming for Materials
As mentioned before, some players like to set up purchase stores to get materials they need for production skills. You can farm items to sell to these stores, or set up your own sale store to sell these items.
These items include items gathered from nodes (most often herbs and toadstools), and the harder to find materials (summoned beast leather and beast tails etc.).
TIP: Abyss and Dungeon maps also have chances of dropping
both of which can be sold for good prices.
The maps listed below have a good drop rate for most materials you will need for crafting. Abyss and Dungeon maps have a higher drop rate than normal maps. They will also drop Ore and precious stones (Topaz, Ruby, and Sapphire) needed for Stone Production. This will save you having to mine for those materials.
These materials are somewhat harder to find than most, so you many need to farm in specific locations to get more of them.
Summoned Beast Leather
Here are a few short videos showing my favorite quick & easy ways to make money.
First up, joining an Academy! It’s a great way to build up some money, and all you need to do is level up!
Second, Tier 3 (T3) HP Potions – they’re always in demand by players, so they’re really easy to sell. Not only that, but they’re easy to make, too! The only ingredient you need to find yourself are the herbs – the rest, you can buy from an NPC!
Third, buying & reselling Return Scrolls! Like the T3 HP Potions, they’re always in demand and an easy sell, as long as your price is right.
Production skills take time to level, but are worth it in the end as they both save you money and make you money.
Farming bosses is a decent way to make money once you can afford the equipment to do so, but you are not guaranteed to get good loot.
Farming materials in Abyss and Dungeon maps is pretty easy, but will not yield a high profit as players are looking to pay the very least they can for materials, in order to make the highest profit they can.
Buying and reselling is the most risky of moneymaking choices, as you are not guaranteed to get back the money you spend. However, if you pick your purchase and sale prices well, you can make great money.
