You will spend a lot of time in Craftopia smacking trees, rocks, and animals with various tools. You don’t want to have to make a new tool every time you break one, so just doing regular repairs will keep them all in good shape, and save your some resources. The downside to repairing items is that it will reduce their maximum durability, so will need to be repaired more often.
To repair an item, you will need a Workbench. You will need 10 Logs and 10 Stone to make a Workbench. You can harvest logs from trees, and Stone from the large grey rocks strewn around the world. If you don’t have any tools, don’t worry, you can just punch the resources you need into existence.
Once the Workbench is built, place it in your hotkey bar and then hit the relevant number of the slot to place it. As long as the Workbench can be place somewhere, it will appear in blue, so just hit the left mouse button to confirm the placement.
Now, to repair items, you will need to stand in front of the workbench and have the item in your hotkey bar. Press the hotkey button for the item you want to repair, then press it again to start the repair process. It won’t take long, but you should only really do it when the item it just about to break to get the most out of the item in question.
You can repair the item the same way, even without a workbench, but from what we can tell doing so at a workbench will reduce the durability less.
