Failure when creating an item will always give "You could not seem to put the item together properly", even when there is no chance of creating the item with the Tinker's skill. It can therefore be difficult to discover at which skill level one is able to create a certain item.

At minimum skill level it may take many tries to create an item, as skill increases so will % chance of success. For example: while it is possible to create a shovel with 41 skill, it is much easier to make shovels at 51 skill. At the minimum skill level displayed on this page the item was actually crafted, the actual minimum skill needed might be slightly lower.

  • Use Carpentry tools to make box/chest--the game will automatically check to see if you have a sufficient Tinkering Ability to create the box/chest as being lockable. A character has a chance to produce lockable box/chests even with the lowest Tinkering ability, however, the higher the skill, the higher the rate of success, at 55 skill there is 3% chance, at 65 skill there is 40% chance. It seems to be so that easier to make containers have a higher chance of being made as lockable.

Dart Trap 1 ingot, 1 Crossbow Bolt 34.1
Explosion Trap 1 ingot, 1 Purple Potion 57.1
Poison Trap 1 ingot, 1 Green Potion 51.0

The exact damage that a trap will inflict is dependent upon both the item used to produce the trap and the Tinker's skill. Base damage and effect of Armor upon the delivered damage is determined by the item used. Tinkering skill may modify the damage from as much as -50% to +50%.

An explosion trap made by a GM tinker using a lesser explosion will almost always suffice for a kill. A poison trap made by a GM tinker with a lesser poison results in a level five poisoning, which is difficult (but not impossible) to cure and saps life quite quickly. A kill with a tinker trap results in the possibility of a murder count for the tinker only if the tinker trapped the box while it was in his backpack.
