The quality of an item is a measure of how well it was crafted. The higher the quality of an item, the higher the item power. There are 5 quality levels currently in Albion each giving bonus item power. Each of them have a base crafting chance:
|Quality Level||Item Power Modifier||Base Crafting Chance|
|Normal||+ 0 item power||68.8%|
|Good||+ 10 item power||25%|
|Outstanding||+ 20 item power||5%|
|Excellent||+ 50 item power||1%|
|Masterpiece||+ 100 item power||0.1%|

Chance of an item being crafted with quality
Mastering the related branch on the destiny board can increase the chance of producing a higher quality item. Additionally, at repair stations you can pay silver to reroll your item for a chance to get a better item. The official base formula for rolling for quality during crafting is explained by Korn on the forums here.
Ways to increase chances of high quality
- Improve related nodes on the Destiny Board
- Craft with Crafting Focus enabled.
- Consume certain foods before crafting. These buffs last for 2 minutes. Enchanted meals offer larger magnitude bonuses.
- Reroll at a Repair Station. The repair station rolls on the base crafting chance for quality upgrades. If it rolls a quality higher than the current quality of the item, the item will be upgraded to that quality.
