Quest Steps

Step 1

It looks like you want to learn about military engineering. You'll learn about building strong defenses, strong weapons, and siegecraft. Some of what you learn will include other types of engineering but only engineers who have researched military techniques can build the strongest. Learning how to smelt metals will help you make tools and metal parts. You'll want to dig for some ore to get started so gather resources to make a shovel.

• Obtain 4x Sticks (0/4)
• Obtain 2x Timber (0/2)

Step 2

Craft a wooden shovel. You'll need it to gather ore. Wooden shovels can be crafted in your inventory or at a crafting table.

• Craft 1x Wooden Shovel (0/1)

Step 3

You need some clay and small stones to craft a furnace. Clay can be found underground almost everywhere, especially where grass is.

• Obtain 20x Clay (0/20)
• Obtain 10x Small Stone (0/10)

Step 4

You need a furnace to smelt the ore. You can craft a furnace using a crafting table.

• Craft 1x Furnace (0/1)

Step 5

You are prepared for smelting but you don't have any ore. Go to a nearby deposit.

• Find the marked ore vein

Step 6

There is ore in the ground here. Hopefully you still have your shovel with you because it's time to start digging!

• Obtain 5x Ore (0/5)

Step 7

So now you have some metal ore. Good job! Use the furnace to craft your first ingot. Furnaces operate like crafting tables except they require fuel and the fire can be lit and doused. Many different items can be burnt for fuel.

• Craft 1x Metal Ingot (0/1)
