Obtaining Dream Weaving

Dream Weaving is a new Craft Profession that arrived with Patch 2.6 associated with VFX dimension items, dimension keys and dream orb stat augments.

Rift - Dream Weaving Reva Song Trainer

There are three trainers for Dream Weaving:

  • Tempest Bay – Trainer Reva Song <Grandmaster Dream Weaver> is found next to the Dimension Key vendor in Tempest Bay at (12777, 11602).
  • Sanctum - Trainer Halucinacio <Grandmaster Dream Weaver> is found in the crafting area in Sanctum at (7452, 2986).
  • Meridian - Trainer Imagi Song <Grandmaster Dream Weaver> is found in The Manufactory (craft area) in the left-most room of Meridian at (5961, 5251).

At present there does not seem to be any other trainers. That said, all characters are able to get to Tempest Bay (although those lower than Level 48 may require assistance via a summon or guild banner).

Requirements:

  • You need an empty Trade Skill slot.
  • Every character gets 3 free Trade Skill slots + Fishing + Survival. To obtain more, hit up the Rift Store -> Services section for a Trade Skill Extension.
  • You can have a total of 10 Trade Skills (+ Fishing + Survival), so a single character is able to obtain all trade skills.

Reva Song will provide you with a quest to craft a Dream Focus (which is the craft station used to craft Dream Weaving items – just like the one behind the NPC). You can place and use this Dream Focus as a crafting station in your own dimension.

Dream Ribbons

Dream Ribbons are obtained from using the Salvage Artifacts ability that you gain after you become a Dream Weaver. You can find this ability in your Abilities Window (default key “p“)  in the General tab. As with all abilities, you can drag this onto your action bar for ease of access/use.

Each Artifact gives a different number of Dream Ribbons, depending on your Dream Weaving level.

As a Novice Dream Weaver you will obtain:

  • Common (White) Artifacts = 1 Dream Ribbon
  • Uncommon (Green) Artifacts = 2 Dream Ribbons
  • Rare (Blue) Artifacts = 5 Dream Ribbons
  • Epic (Purple) Artifacts = 20 Dream Ribbons
  • Relic (Orange) Artifacts = 50 Dream Ribbons

By the time you hit full Grandmaster Dream Weaver (Level 375):

  • Common (White) Artifacts = 3 Dream Ribbon
  • Uncommon (Green) Artifacts = 4 Dream Ribbons
  • Rare (Blue) Artifacts = 9 Dream Ribbons
  • Epic (Purple) Artifacts = 28 Dream Ribbons
  • Relic (Orange) Artifacts = 75 Dream Ribbons

As you can see, White Artifacts tend to scale extremely well (from 1 to 3) whereas on the other end of the spectrum, Orange Artifacts scale poorly (from 50 to 75). If you are leveling Dream Weaving, it might be better to use the Orange Artifacts in the lower levels and hold onto your White Artifacts for when you are higher level.

Stacking

Worried about filling your inventory with Dream Ribbon stacks? No problem!

Dream Bolt

You can convert a 99 stack of Dream Ribbons into 1 Dream Bolt. Simply right-click a 99-stack Dream Ribbon to turn it into 1 Dream Bolt.

You can also convert the Dream Bolts back into 99-stack Dream Ribbons by right-clicking on the Dream Bolt.

Thanks to Ivnedar@Laethys for discovering this!

Leveling up Dream Weaving

Dream Weaving recipes require a variety of lumber, plants, cloth, leather, metal bars and fish to create as well as Dream Ribbons. This also means you will require these for leveling up.

Note: You can use Skill Spheres bought from the Rift Store -> Boosts section to increase your skill point gain per craft. The Guild Perk “Journeyman” also gives you a 5-15% chance per craft to gain an additional skill point.

Total Recipes Cost (when going cheapest route) = 10 plat 65 gold
Total Training Cost = 13 plat 59 gold
Total Plat Cost = 24 plat 24 gold

Dream Weaving Recipes List

dreamweaverrecipelist_buttonBelow is a link to a Google Spreadsheet with all the Dream Weaving Recipes including material costs, recipe costs and recipe levels.

Leveling without Skill Spheres

Below is a breakdown of the total materials required to level from 0 to 375 without Skill Spheres or any other bonuses.

10 Moorleaper Stillmoor Shallow Water
5 Diving Ouzel Brevane Continent Shallow Water

This list is based on the cheapest route, thus excluding Rift Store-bought recipes, Dimension Key recipes and Dream Orb recipes. This also assumes that you get 1 Skill Point per Recipe craft for every 10 levels. Does not take into account the Guild Perk: Journeyman. You may want a slight buffer just to be sure.

Leveling with Transcendent Skill Spheres

Many Patrons would have Transcendent Skill Spheres left over from the 7x Transcendent Boost Packs that were given to Patrons a few months ago by Trion. Below is a breakdown of the total materials required to level from 0 to 375 using a Transcendent Skill Sphere.

No.  Material Name Other Info
2716 Dream Ribbon Salvage Artifact
Cloth (Humanoid Mob Loot; Outfitter)
17 Bolt of Burlap Silverwood/Freemarch
10 Bolt of Cotton Silverwood/Freemarch
5 Bolt of Wool Scarlet Gorge
5 Bolt of Composite Cloth Shimmersand
15 Bolt of Empyrean Silk Ashora/Steppes/Dendrome

5 Smooth Minnow Silverwood/Freemarch Shallow Water
3 Electric Dragonfish Scarlet Gorge Deep Water
10 Desert Greenling Droughtlands Shallow Water
5 Moorleaper Stillmoor Shallow Water
3 Diving Ouzel Brevane Continent Shallow Water

This list is based on the cheapest route, thus excluding Rift Store-bought recipes, Dimension Key recipes and Dream Orb recipes. This also assumes that you get at least 2 Skill Points per Recipe craft. Does not take into account the Guild Perk: Journeyman. You may want a slight buffer just to be sure, although with a Transcendent Skill Sphere you usually only need 5 crafts or less per 10 levels.

VFX Dimension Item Previews

There will not be Craftman Mark-based Recipes nor will there be Dream Weaving dailies. You can obtain recipes via the Trainer, Cash Shop and through other methods not yet mentioned (probably open world/dungeon drops). [r]

Dimension Key Previews

One of the biggest perks of the Dream Weaving Craft Profession are the new Dimension Keys, all tradeable!

newdimenionskeys1

They range from small dimensions all the way to large ones listed below. All tradeable when you craft them.

Note: the “Key to Dimension: Anywhere” is a plain location with no doodads.

The following Dimension Key Recipes are obtained from the Rift Store; or else from trainer:

  • Daazez Wastes
  • Faering Woods
  • Pus Swamp
  • Edgstone Ridge
  • Malluma Track
  • Azcu’azg Oasis

These can be accessed from Rift Store -> Crafting -> Dream Weaving with a platinum or Credits option.

Screenshots – New Dimensions

Below is an image album with screenshots from all the dimensions created by the Dream Weaving profession:

IMGUR ALBUM: New Dimensions – Dreamweaving

Once again, these are tradeable!

Dream Orbs

Rift Dream Orbs

What Are They?

Dream Orbs are Stat enchants like Runes, but stacks with them that Dream Weavers can create. They go into the Helmet, Neck, Shoulders and Cape slots and have different level requirements dependent on the type of Dream Orb.

They are tradeable and require a whole bunch of Dream Ribbons and Coruscating Ethereal Shards.

Warning: They do NOT carry over when upgrading the underlying gear.

Type No. of Orbs Item Level Skill Level Materials
Lesser 12 38 265 36x Dream Ribbons;
1x Coruscating Shard
Median 8 48 315 96x Dream Ribbons;
1x Coruscating Shard
Greater 4 58 365 192x Dream Ribbons;
1x Coruscating Shard

Note: Skill Level = Dream Weaving Skill Level required to craft the Dream Orbs.
Coruscating Shard = Coruscating Ethereal Shard obtained with 1,500 Empyreal Slayer’s Marks from Rift Store -> Crafting.

How Do They Work?

You apply a Dream Orb to your gear in the same way as you apply Runes. They stack with Runes.

Dream Orbs have a unique feature that distinguishes them from Runes in that they are not static stats – they are RNG. Each time you apply a Dream Orb you will receive one of 20 different combinations of stats which differs depending on gear slot, gear level/tier and type of Dream Orb used.

Stat Range

Each time you apply a Dream Orb you will receive one of the following stats:

  • Main Stat-only.
  • Main Stat + AP/SP.
  • Main Stat + END.
  • Endurance-only.

Of these, there are 5 combinations of stats for each of the above. As such, there’s a total of 20 different possible stats you can receive when you apply a Dream Orb. The actual amount of these stats depends on gear slot, gear level/tier and the type of Dream Orb used.

Higher-grade Dream Orbs provide better stats with a tighter stat range.

Dream Orb Stat Sheet

Dream Orbs Stat SheetBelow is a spreadsheet detailing every possible combination on commonly used gear for each gear slot and Dream Orb type:

All combinations are listed so that you can hopefully make better-informed decisions about whether to risk losing your second-BiS stat in order to attempt to get the BiS stat, which may only be a +1 main stat difference.

Hope this guide has helped you out with your Dream Weaving queries! Look forward to seeing what dimensioneers come up with using the new VFX dimension items and Dimension Keys.

If you have any questions, please feel free to leave a comment below and I’ll get back to you as soon as possible.

    The spreadsheet about matewrial costs for the orbs seem to be wrong
    The lesser orbs will not cost the highest amount of materials and vice versa
    Please review

    • February 9, 2014 at 11:02 pm #

      Thanks for the correction Coy! Fixed that up! :D

      i would like to know the 4 best stats lets say im a rogue

      Main Stat-only.
      Main Stat + AP/SP.
      Main Stat + END.
      Endurance-only.

    • June 12, 2014 at 5:17 pm #

      The best stats depends on the Gear Slot (Helm, Shoulders, Cape or Neck) as well as what Tier and rarity your gear is (i.e. Tier 1 Relic Helm has different stat combinations to the Tier 2 Epic Helm). You can refer to the Dream Orb Stat Sheet to look up which stats are best for your Rogue.

      If you are DPS, you want the highest Main Stat + AP/SP for your character. If you are Tank you want the best Endurance-only.

    You got the numbers wrong for the orbs you are getting from dream weaving. Sadly you only get 4 greater orbs for 192 dream ribbons and 1 coruscating shard.

    • February 10, 2014 at 1:25 am #

      Thanks for the correction Genji! Yea, for some reason I accidentally switched the Greater and Lesser Orbs for that particular table.

    thanks for the leg work, just wanted to point out i think u have the number of dream orbs and the cost of making them upside-down :)

    • February 10, 2014 at 3:04 am #

      Thanks Faradai. Yep, I did end up mixing up the two for the cost table, but I’ve since corrected it. I think you may need to refresh the spreadsheet to see the corrections.

      dam i was hoping I was wrong and we got 12 of the greaters

    Hey on the mats do you need them from each profession to lvl or just from 1

    • February 11, 2014 at 9:50 pm #

      For leveling, each recipe costs Dream Ribbons + some other mat/s. The other mats are Fish, Lumber, Metal Bars, Plants and Leather that are gained from Fishing, Foraging, Mining, Foraging and Butchering respectively.

      So you will either need those other professions, or purchase the mats from somebody else off the Auction House (though chances are they’ll be overpriced with the initial rush for mats).

      For leveling itself – you’ll need to craft Dream Weaving-based recipes that are at least green to you (better chance of skill-up from recipes that are yellow or orange-colored) to level up.

      gotcha i was just working on buying the mats just didnt know if 1 profession would work or if i need the mats from all.

    Any stats known for the relic pvp Rank 90 gear?

    • February 21, 2014 at 4:40 pm #

      Not yet. Don’t think there’s many people with any Relic PvP gear yet – it costs quite a bit of Warlord Cells and a Radiant Infinity Cell. That said, as soon as I get my hands on a Radiant Infinity Cell and enough Warlord Cells – I can head over to PTS and fill out the stats for each.

      February 24, 2014 at 12:03 pm #

      I went on PTS and did it for Rogue Relic Helm + Shoulders using greater orbs. i can give you the stats if you want. ill do necklace + shoulders when i get more radiant infinity cells.

    • February 24, 2014 at 2:47 pm #

      That would be excellent! Would you be able to send the stats through the contact form or via PMing Jonus on the Rift Forums? That would be greatly appreciated! :D

    I was wondering, at what level do we start getting 3 ribbons out of the white artifacts?

    • April 24, 2014 at 6:25 pm #

      Should be when you become a Grandmaster (which you can do at Level 295 at your trainer).

  7. Veldan
    July 3, 2014 at 12:07 pm #

    false info, at 300 dreamweaver (with grandmaster purchased) I get 2 ribbons per white artifact always, not 3

    • July 3, 2014 at 4:53 pm #

      Thanks for the correction Veldan – it should be at 375 Dreamweaver.

    Thank you for all the work you put into this, perfect guide and I love the dimension screenshots. :)

    Noticed a comment on the stat sheet for :

    Note: Currently Greater Dream Orbs seem to work on Level 61+ gear, although this may be unintended since they seem to give the same stats.

    Savant Dream Orbs state that they give the best possible stat combination or endurance only, and will not give the main stat + endurance combo, whereas greater orbs will give the range of stats combinations – ie savant orbs are default BiS (unless you really want main+end), and greaters are the range – hence why they work on 61+.

    Unconfirmed but that’s what I suspect.
