Last chance to buy soon-to-be vintaged crafting materials!
Tomorrow, on May 17, store-bought blueprints will be refunded, and General Stores will no longer stock these vintage crafting materials.
Store-bought Blueprints Sunset
With the recent Shops Infrastructure Overhaul, Trapsmiths have become adept at constructing traps which once needed to be hand-crafted by MouseHunters!
As a result of this mass production of traps, the associated blueprints will soon vanish from hunters' inventories as the knowledge is passed on to Trapsmiths. Hunters looking to acquire one of these previously-crafted traps moving forward should seek out the appropriate Trapsmith to construct it.
Tomorrow (Tuesday, May 17) at 3:00 PM (UTC) blueprint refunds will begin to be processed.
