For anyone who may want to know a little more about this oddly named ore, or for more proof that it's not a joke:

www.dragonsbreathforge.com/wootzhistory.htm

That has some pretty informative info on this.

I've seen a Wootz Ingot, so there is some purpose to these. A guy had it in his bazaar for 99,999,999 when I stopped by Metalworks one day, but when I asked him where or how he got it, he didn't respond (afk, probably). I'm guessing it'd take 4 of these, like most ingot recipes, and perhaps a high level of goldsmithing or blacksmithing.

If SE is thinking the same thing as Elowan, then there's probably a lot of high-level equipment just waiting to be made from this stuff.

Recipe for ingot:

Crystal: fire

Wootz Ore x1
Steel Ingot x1
Rosewood Lumber x1

Smithing skill level unknown. Presumably veteran (90) or above, since all the other dynamis crafts require it.

It is used to upgrade the Relic Maul to the stage 2 relic hammer, the Battering Maul, by trading the Relic Maul, a Wootz Ingot, a Platinum Ingot, a Rainbow Cloth and 5 Montiont Silverpieces to Switchstix in Castle Zvahl. Come back the next game day and you get the Battering Maul. It is also used to upgrade the Relic Bhuj (Great Axe) in much the same manner.

Most of the items crafted from dynamis drops are used to upgrade dynamis gear, which when it reaches its pinnacle rivals that of the gear dropped by the God Beasts in Tu'Lia.

lol thats a weird recipe. Who was the guy that sat there combining this thing with bizarre combos until he made that ingot. And then, how much gil did he make off of it before anyone else found out? wow.

Heh, people don't just discover recipes by combining random stuff until they get a working recipe. There are NPCs in each of the crafting guilds that give out recipes every time you talk to them. One gives recipes that cap below your skill level, one gives recipes a bit above your level, and one gives recipes several levels above your level. By talking to these NPCs repeatedly, you can get a ton of recipies.

Just to clarify it is in Black smithing cause it is sold in the Black smithing materials section.

This is actually not a joke at all - "wootz" steel is the prepared precursor to creating high quality blades like Damascus swords and Japanese katanas. Here's an excerpt from the Britannica encyclopedia:

Wootz steel, as it was called, was prepared as sponge (porous) iron in a unit not unlike a bloomery. The product was hammered while hot to expel slag, broken up, then sealed with wood chips in clay containers and heated until the pieces of iron absorbed carbon and melted, converting it to steel of homogeneous composition containing 1 to 1.6 percent carbon. The steel pieces could then be heated and forged to bars for later use in fashioning articles, such as the famous Damascus swords made by medieval Arab armourers.

Ive actually seen that method before but I didn't know the steel used was "Wootz" steel. Very informative, thank you.
