General Information

Resource return rate is the percentage of resources you will get back when refining and crafting

Base return is determined by the City you are in and whether the action you are performing is enhanced in that city

Crafting Focus enhances resource return rates further

Black Zone Types also provide a base resource return similar to that of a city

Return Bonuses

Some zones provide an increased base RRR when crafting. For example, crafting cloth in a Royal City will provide you with a base RRR of 15.2%, but crafting it in Lymhurst will give you a base RRR of 36.7%. With a base RRR of 36.7%, if you were to use 100 cotton to craft simple cloth, then you would receive 100 simple cloth and around 37 cotton, whereas if you had a base RRR of 15.2%, you will only receive around 15 cotton. This incentivizes crafters to craft items in cities with increased RRR and to craft with focus in order to save on material costs, thus allowing them to craft the item for much less and make more profit. Crafting in Outlands hideouts also provide increasing RRR bonuses depending on how close the zone is to the center.

Crafting at the black zone gives 48% resource return rate with focus.

Refining and Crafting Bonuses: these bonuses apply to materials refined and items crafted in the Royal Cities. Here are the items that have crafting bonuses in each Royal City and zone type:
