Assassin’s Creed 3: Crafting Recipes Guide

Crafting in Assassin’s Creed 3 can be a nice way to make extra money, and to get some nice weapons and upgrades.

In order to craft items though, you need to level up your artisans, which require you to do Homestead missions. This can be fairly time consuming, but it will pay off in the long run.

These recipes typically require raw materials that you can collect from hunting and skinning, from other artisans, from other crafted materials, and a few require a more rare material which is the Special Iron Ingots. These can be obtained by completing Miner missions, and there are also some in a locked chest behind your manor house.

Keep in mind that obtaining certain levels in an artisan is sequence specific, so check out my artisan leveling guide if you want to know when you can create a specific item.

  1. Some Guy says

    Is this a glitch? : I was using one of the cheats, and I opened the special iron ingots box, (And im aware stuff doesnt save when you use cheats). And now I cant re open it and I dont have the material anymore.Do I need to re do campaign, or can I fix this?

  2. Russell says

    You have the ingredients for the Washington and Lincoln Sword listed as the same things. The recipe for Lincoln’s sword actual recipe is level 4 blacksmith + special iron ingot + dyes. Washington’s is already correct.
