Masterwork items are extraordinarily well made mundane items. While more expensive to purchase or craft than their regular counterpart, the quality provides an added benefit. Masterwork weapons, armor and shields are not magic items and can be purchased from the marketplace. An item cannot be both magical and masterwork as the magical properties overwrite the masterwork bonus. When purchasing or crafting a masterwork version of a mundane item, you add the masterwork item's gold cost below with the original price of the non-masterwork item. Masterwork weapons can be silvered.Example: A Cutlass costs 20 GP and a masterwork weapon costs 450 GP bringing the total to 470 GP.
Masterwork WeaponsCost: 450 GP
Masterwork weapons have a +1 bonus to damage. On a critical hit, the weapon's damage counts as magical for the purpose of overcoming resistance and immunity to nonmagical attacks and damage. Ammo cannot be made masterwork, but weapons that use ammunition can.
Masterwork Light ArmorCost: 350 GP
Masterwork light armor feels as if it propels you forward. Gain 5 feet of movement speed. You can don or doff your armor in half the time.
Masterwork Medium ArmorCost: 350 GP
Masterwork medium armor increases the maximum Dexterity modifier by 1, allowing you to be more agile in combat. You can don or doff your armor in half the time.
Masterwork Heavy ArmorCost: 350 GP
Masterwork heavy armor reduces the maximum strength requirement by 1. You can don or doff your armor in half the time.
Masterwork ShieldCost: 150 GP
You can quickly don or doff your shield as a bonus action.
Masterwork Spellcasting FocusCost: 250 GP
Masterwork spellcasting focuses allow the spellcaster to ignore half cover when making a spell attack.
Add Gem SocketCost: 150 GP
Masterwork weapons, light armor, medium armor, and heavy armor are so exceptional, they can be enhanced further with the addition of an open socket. This allows players to socket a magical gem, as discussed in the Living Erenel: Downtime's Gem Socketing section. Only 1 gem can be added to an item. Gems cannot be placed in shields or spellcasting focuses at this time, but new gem types and rarities are coming soon.
