Work Bench: How To Upgrade Them And Materials Required?

Moreover, The Upgrade Bench comes in three tiers like all other crafting stations, and below are the materials you will require:

To craft ‘The Simple Workbench’ you will require:

  1. Ingot x2
  2. Lumber x4
  3. Twine x3

  1. Lumber x4
  2. Mechanical Gears x1
  3. Carved Wood x1

Finally, to craft an ‘Excellent Workbench’ you will require:

  1. Carved Wood x8
  2. Mechanical Gears x2

However, crafting these workbenches comes down to story progression and working through Nightingale’s main storyline or quests.

Work Bench Upgrades: How To Craft Materials?

All the materials you require to craft and build the workbenches are found in the game’s world.

Some examples of how you can get those materials are:

1. Ingots

You must refine Gems and Ores into Glass and Ingots if you have built a Simple Smelter.

Simple Smelter can be built using a blueprint that can be found with Essence Traders and the materials you will require are:

  • Stone Block x4
  • Rocks x6

2. Lumber

After you craft a Simple Saw Table you can refine the Wood Bundles you have gathered from chopping down trees.

Remember, Wood Bundles are gathered by chopping down trees in the surrounding areas whereas Lumbers are crafted.

You can also craft Carved Wood with a Simple Saw Table after you have upgraded your table and you will require a couple of more Lumbers.

3. Twine

Crafting Twine is one of the easiest crafting mechanisms of the game, you will only need a Simple Spinning Wheel and two chunks of Fibre.

Plant Fibres work just fine but if you want your twine to be a high quality one, you will need to use Refined Fibre.

Work Bench Upgrades: Where Are The Blueprints Found?

Having materials is not enough, you will also require Blueprints to craft these work benches.

The blueprint can be found with the Essence Traders in different realms.

Since realms in Nightingale are procedurally generated, Essence Traders are rarely found in the same location

Upgrade Bench Nightingale
Players can find Essence Traders in different locations across all realms.

However, a ticket icon marks them on your map.

These Essence Traders are generally not in the same position – they switch positions based on the game’s progression.

In the Abeyance Realm, you can typically find them next to the Antiquarian Site Of Power but this may not always be the case.

Hence, refer to your map to find the Essence Traders.
