Gathering items and crafting is a main component of the game. You'll spend most of your gametime trying to aquire resources and manufacturing the items you will need to survive. So it is essential that you are able to quickly find what you are looking for.
How to craft
Many items can be crafted from your inventory with opening the (C)rafting Page by pressing the Key C or the icon. By pressing C again will open your class specific crafting. You can see what items you need in your inventory by hovering your mouse over the icon. Furthermore the abilities and and restrictions are shown in the tooltip too. Read them carefully to see if you can use this item before crafting it. But not everything can be crafted in your inventory, especially higher tier items need rare components and have to be crafted in specific buildings.
The items can be devided into resources (natural and animal), crafted and special (quest) items.
For a list of items go to Items.
These resources are needed for basic craftings, like most buildings and lower level items.

These items CANNOT be crafted and can only be acquired by special circumstances or from the merchant at the center of the map.
Not everything what you need for suvival can be crafted in your troll's inventory. Of course a simple weapon, a bit of armor here and some fire to cook there can keep you alive for some time, but this way you 'll never master the wild. And don't forget, there are other tribes trying to claim this forest as their home too!
So improving your equipment, your tribes settlement and developing a strategy how to overcome your enemies should become the objective after you have secured your basic survival.
But for this you need buildings, where you can create the items and tools you need.
Each building is specialized in a certain field of production. But this does not mean that the items are only useful for the class it benefits most!
Buildings are created by crafting a building kit first and then by left clicking and placing the kit at the desired position. To craft items, put the resources in the inventory of the building and press the item you want to craft.
For a list of buildings go to Buildings.
