Refining in Albion Online is the process of converting raw resources into refined materials that can be used for crafting equipment like weapons or armor, constructing buildings or selling them on the market.
The refined resources that you can make are:
Mastery reduces the amount of focus used when refining, each level gives +30 focus cost efficiency when refining each resources under the node [fiber, ore, hide, wood, or stone] and +250 focus cost efficiency when refining the current nodes tier
example: +30 focus cost efficiency when refining fiber, +250 focus cost efficiency when refining skyflower
Focus returns an amount of resources to your inventory when refining based on the city or zone you are in when refining. 15%/44% of the resources returned with focus is the base value in Caerleon, but other return rates are listed below allowing you to save materials and/or save focus if you are willing to travel to the Royal cities listed below.
