How to Get the Crucible in 7 Days to Die

Posted on by justin
The Crucible in 7 Days to Die is one of the three tools for the Forge, accompanying the Anvil and Advanced Bellows. With this tool attached, you can unlock and make additional items from the Forge, including a material used to craft powerful arrows and bolts. With that, here's everything the Crucible offers and how to get it in 7 Days to Die.

How to Get the Crucible in 7 Days to Die

7 Days to Die Crucible At the time of writing, there are two main methods of acquiring the Crucible in this zombie-survival title – crafting and buying. Remember, each method has its unique pros and cons.

Crafting the Crucible

Craft the Crucible from the Workbench using the following ingredients:
  • 100x Forged Iron
  • 20x Mechanical Parts
  • 1,200x Small Stone
  • 20x Oil
  • 900x Clay Soil
Additionally, you must find and read the Forge Ahead crafting skill magazine 75 times to unlock the Crucible recipe. Note that this mechanic comes with the Alpha 21 update. Gathering the ingredients to craft the Crucible can be time-consuming. Thankfully, these materials aren’t significantly rare. But you may still have to go through points-of-interests heavily populated with undead hordes to collect these items.

Buying the Crucible

You can purchase a Crucible from a trader upon reaching Level 3 for the Better Barter Influence Perk. It also costs about 7,000 Dukes to buy. However, traders are more difficult to find in Alpha 21 than before. In particular, you’ll typically find a trader outside of every city or town. Now, trader stops are located all over Navezgane. Additionally, it’s not a guarantee that a Crucible will show up as one of the Trader’s wares.

Crucible Crafting Recipes

Note that the following items can be crafted from the Forge with a connected Crucible.
  • Bulletproof Glass: 137x Crushed Sand, 12x Small Stone, 50x Lead, 25x Iron, and 25x Clay
  • Forged Steel: 31x Iron and 15x Soil
  • Steel Arrowhead: 5x Iron and 1x Soil (requires the Advanced Engineering Craftsmanship Perk)
