Crafting in Builders allows the player to create unique items, furniture, armor, weapons, and many other items needed throughout the game. Crafting is the main focus and mechanic for DQB. A crafting station is required and they can be found naturally or made by the player.
To craft an item the player first needs to receive a recipes. The hero/[[Heroine (Dragon Quest Builders)|heroine] will either invent these recipes on their own, or a secondary character will give the hero/heroine the idea for a new recipe. The player can not create something without a recipe, even if the player knows the materials required to make the item.
Each recipe requires a certain number of materials. The player will receive various materials by either; killing enemies, breaking objects, opening chests, growing them, or receive them from NPCs.
There are various different crafting stations in Dragon Quest Builders. The first one the player encounters is a Tree Stump and soon after a Mason's Workstation. The first crafting stations are given to the player without needing to make them.
- Tree Stump
