The Artisan Items are Avatar pieces which can be crafted through the Artisans. These are a unique feature because they can be earned instead of simply purchased with Blood or Favor Points. They were first introduced in May 2010. 
In order to Craft an Item the player must collect the required materials and ask the Artisans for help. Once started it takes no longer than 6 days for them to build; 12 hours quicker for each friend that helps upto a maximum of 5 friends per day. Only 1 Item may be crafted at a time, but materials can be requested all the time. Once an Item is built you gain a permanent stat bonus, and the ability to equip or unequip the Item without losing the boost.
Items can be equipped on the Avatar page; most are equipped in the Wings Slot, some are equipped in the Weapons Slot. There are currently 23 sets with 3 Styles per set.
* Marked items are Weapons, the rest are Wings.
