On this page of The Serpent Rogue game guide, you will learn how to use recipes to craft weapons and tools through melting. We've included a complete list of recipes and where to find them.
Here you will learn about the weapons and tools that can be crafted in The Serpent Rogue through melting. You will learn: where to find the recipes / instructions explaining how to craft specific weapons and tools, as well as the properties of said craftables.
Shovel: 2x Metal Scraps + Log. The shovel can be used as a weapon, but its primary function is to unearth treasures hidden beneath mounds of soil.
The recipe can be found on a statue in the Gorgon's Lair. You'll need the help of a toad or some large animal to collect it.
To craft an ax, you'll need: 1x Log + 1x Metal Scrap.
You can find an ax as early as the first stage of the game, once you've reached the second location - the Camp. The ax can be found leaning on the forge right next to the entrance to the location. Like all tools, the ax can be used as a weapon and has a limited durability. That's why you can find another ax nearby.
Go to the right, near the rocks. You will see a traveler sitting here, and two red barrels below them. Destroying them will hurt you. Still, you'll have to do it in order to reach the bag hanging on the branch behind them. That's where you'll find the ax.
The ax recipe can be found in the Wasteland, lying directly on the ground in the upper right corner of the location.
Torch recipe: 1x Textile + 1x Log. The torch emits light, causes Looming Vines to retract, doesn't hurt the main character, and, when used as a weapon, deals 1 point of damage and burns the target. It can be extinguished in water, re-ignited from a fire source, and its durability decreases as you walk around with the torch lit.
Torches can be obtained from random NPCs or by visiting the Wasteland, where they can be found randomly in many locations on wooden handles.
On the right of the Wasteland, in the water below (the second river), you'll find a Sealed Message. By throwing and breaking it, you'll discover the Torch recipe.
Sword recipe: 1x Log + 3x Metal Scrap. This is the game's main weapon and deals 10 damage by default.
To find the recipe, you need to use a Purifying potion to destroy the Corruption mark on the door of the Abandoned House building. Inside, you'll find the recipe lying on the floor.
Broom recipe: 1x Log + 2x Textile. A broom is an unusual weapon because it lowers the target's age. It can be used to weaken adult opponents by reverting them to a younger stage. This will reduce their health points and attack damage. However, this strategy only works against enemies that don't resist aging and have more than one age stage.
The broom recipe can be found in the Abandoned House, after digging up a mound by the fence on the right side of the location.
The broom is connected to the Tools of Defense achievement. You need to use it to block 50 attacks.
Stag recipe: 3x Log + 1x Metal Scrap. Although weak, it has a longer range when compared to other weapons.
You can find this weapon on a boat near the Corrupted Tree in the Wasteland.
The recipe for this weapon is inside the Sealed Message at the end of the river on the left side of the Wasteland. To get the recipe, break the bottle by throwing it on the ground.
Recipe: 2x Metal Scrap. Picklocks are the basic tool for opening most of the chests in the game. You'll get 5 picklocks each time you craft them.
The recipe can be found in the Pier, straight ahead from the entrance. Check the boat on the shore.
Recipe: 2x Textile + 1x Spectral Fuel. When you remove this unusual item from your inventory, it will start moving towards the nearest treasure or secret.
The clew recipe is to the north of the Westland, in the middle area. It is found in a Sealed Message, but to collect it, you'll need to take the form of a Restless or a water-resistant monster.
Recipe: 3x Metal Scrap. The trap has to be placed on the ground (be careful, as you can fall into it, too). It deals 5 points of damage and temporarily immobilizes the target.
The recipe is in the left section of the Pier. You won't be able to collect it the usual way; instead you'll need to morph into a Toad and use its long tongue skill.
Recipe: 2x Log + 1x Metal Scrap. Per each crafting attempt, you will receive 3 traps.
A nail trap can be stepped on 3 times before it breaks. In addition to dealing 1-2 points of damage, it inflicts the Wounded x2 status effect, which deals 5 points of damage each time the afflicted creature moves.
Recipe: Water Bottle + 3x Spectral Fuel. This is a simple amulet that increases maximum health by 10 points.
The recipe can be found on the upper floor of a hut in the swamps, in the south-eastern corner of the map, behind deep water.
Recipe: 1x Log + 1x Textile + 2x Spectral Fuel. A consumable item that passively increases your (or a follower's) attack power.
You can find the recipe in Dobhar-chu's Lair located behind the Swamp. However, first you'll need to defeat the monster, unless you manage to sneak past it.
Recipe: 1x Metal Scrap + 3x Spectral Fuel. This ring protects the wearer from the Soulless status, which is extremely dangerous as it lowers maximum health.
The recipe can be found in the Merchant's location, to the left of their house. You'll need to dig up the mound.
Despite the fact that glass can't be crafted directly, it's a useful enough object to be included in this category. Aside from randomly finding it, glass can be obtained by throwing Empty Bottles / Water Bottles on the ground and breaking them. You can use glass as a weapon, but it loses durability very quickly. Its main use is for cutting ropes, granting you access to a number of secrets and bags hanging in the air. Cutting a rope will use up the piece of glass.
Lab recipe: 2x Log, 1x Textile, 1x Metal Scrap. This is the same lab you get at the beginning of the game. They can be placed in any location and used to brew potions and conduct research.
