Tinkering is an utility skill which can be used to create twenty items if you have the highest rank. This skill can be compared to crafting, but unlike crafting, the created items you create with this skill can be used only once. To use the items, you have to give the items to party members before battle. The resources you need to create item can only be obtained by looting containers in each area. With the scouting skill, you sometimes obtain the items you can create with the skill. The resources used in tinkering, are also used sometimes in quests and random events.
