Resource Return Rate
When crafting or refining an item, you may be given back a certain amount of materials used to make that item. The amount of returned resources depends on the Resource Return Rate.
Return Rate in Islands, Cities and Territories
The return rate value depends on whether you are crafting or refining in a City, Territory or on your island. The return rate can be further increased by using Focus Points
Increase your crafting efficiency
With each Mastery level in the crafting or refining line of the Destiny Board of the item you are crafting or refining, your Focus cost will be reduced.
All Royal Cities have specific crafting and refining bonuses.
If you have a Journal in your inventory while crafting you can view the returns of the full journals as a further return rate, but since the Journals act as a bonus they work slightly different. Please see the Laborer and Journal pages for more information.
