Crafting is an important mechanic in Babylon’s Fall, but it requires a lot of materials, some of which might take a while to gather. To make this process a little less difficult, the developers included a mechanic called Recycling.
How Recycling Works in Babylon’s Fall
In short, Recycling allows you to disassemble items you no longer need into crafting materials. You do this in Ishmur’s forge, so you’ll have to get to the point in the story when this location becomes available.
The amount of materials this process will yield mostly depends on the items chosen, but you can get better results with one more trick.
Although Recycling doesn’t cost anything, you can use special items called Catalyst Stones for better results.
These come in three rarities – Lesser, Regular and Greater. Obviously, the better Catalyst Stone you use, the more you’re going to get out of it. Additionally, Greater Stones can also give you unique materials from recycling, not available by using weaker recycling options.
Getting Catalyst Stones
Catalyst Stones are pretty rare. Sometimes, you receive them for doing missions, but you can also buy them at Pygmelion’s shop. However, there is a daily limit, determining how much you can purchase, so if you can afford it, you should be buying them every day to get the most out of this mechanic.
