So the other day I was trying to figure out a good placement order to have Elle, my favorite NPC, early, but also to have ready the Workshops to navigate the world with a decent weapon.
I made it, and accidentally in Polpota Harbor I discovered how amazing the JuddHemp is. Is almost as good as the AltenaFelt (the Sultan' Silk is there, though not as good as the hemp or the felt) I had no idea. The result is that I can have early a Spear or a Bow with +400 attack with little tempering, nothing fancy, enough to not to craft another weapon in the whole run, saving a lot of time of hunting for materials and forging.
Even more, I did a bit of a research about the Hemp, and in our Earth, Hemp is used not only as a fabric to make clothing but also to make wood, in fact, the wood made with Hemp is stronger than most woods, like the oak. No kidding.
So my character is traveling with a 450 Spear, a bokken, or a bow made of a strong wood, instead with a powerful piece of fabric like the AltenaFelt, which was a bit strange. (And yeah, at first I thought it was a joke)
This is my placement and the missions I completed before reaching this point, after this I had all the missable events and the demi humans appear aswell.
