Crafting Method[edit | edit source]

One easy method to create massive amounts of gunpowder is to chop a large quantity of wood, place the wood in a campfire/forge (not a standing torch as they burn wood much slower), and use an Ankylo to mine flint and stone needed for the sparkpowder ingredient. Once full of flint and stone, the wood should have finished burning and produced charcoal, giving the second ingredient needed to make the gunpowder. Another method to acquire vast amounts of charcoal is to chop down burnt trees on the burnt islands of The Center and around volcano area of Ragnarok, as they drop it as a resource as well.

Notes[edit | edit source]

Since Charcoal is acquired at such a low level, it is advised to store it, if you have the means, to save having to waste burning wood later on without cooking anything.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Gunpowder blueprints can no longer be spawned. If the "cheat giveitemnum 108 1 0 1" command is used there will only spawn one item of gunpowder. You MUST learn the engram prior to be able to make gunpowder.
