Mini Crafts are accessible by Level 1 crafters
Mini Crafts are instant
Treasure Fragments are soulbound
Head over to the Forge to get started on Bridgeworld!
For additional details on Mini Crafting, check out the updated docs here.
Improvements have been made to address various bugs:
The bug resulting in incorrect Treasure Fragments being dropped in incorrect Zones has been fixed.
Smithing & Leatherworking Fragments instead of Enchanting & Brewing Fragments are now granted when questing in Desert Ruins.
Enchanting & Brewing Fragments instead of Smithing & Leatherworking Fragments are now granted when questing in Icy Ascent.
If you were impacted by the above issue and would like to receive the correct Fragments you can swap them via Arbiscan. Read here for directions on how to swap Fragments: https://docs.treasure.lol/bridgeworld/bridgeworld-litepaper/ivory-tower#fragment-swapper

The Community Spotlight highlights builders and community projects in our ecosystem: This week we interviewed Braiker from the $Magic Hour Podcast team to hear how their project came to fruition, what they’re building and what motivated them to get started.
Sambino: How did you and the team find your way into Treasure?
Braiker: Alam, Dionysis and I are all members of The One discord, a free, project agnostic discord. Typically, we would find ourselves minting whatever was popular that day. Of course, when Treasure dropped we all minted a bag. Then, a couple weeks later, End (of the TreasureDAO team) started getting deeper into the ecosystem and encouraged us all to get more involved and start staking our Treasures. Of course we did, and then we started hearing about other projects, like Smols. While I missed out on the Smol Brains mint, Dionysis and Alam successfully got their Smols.
Sambino: Can you share more about what $Magic Hour is and what you are building?
Braiker: At its core, $Magic Hour is a podcast for the MAGIC community. We are building a platform for builders and community members to share their projects, experiences, and passion for this ecosystem. We also understand the network effect cycle, and we want to get the word out about what’s going on in our little corner of Web3.
Sambino: What motivated you to start $Magic Hour?
Braiker: For a long time, I wanted to start a podcast. I often listened to many while I traveled, whether it was on a commute, or on vacation, or even during downtime. With all the excitement and community engagement around MAGIC and the ecosystem, I noticed there was so much going on it was hard for even me to keep up. I also noticed that while there were many Twitter Spaces, there wasn’t a podcast being produced. I realized then that this was my opportunity to make it happen. In The One Discord, I asked if anyone was interested in doing a podcast. While there were a number of members who showed interest, Dionysis and Alam were the only two who seemed committed to embarking on this journey. H/T to Kyle for beginning the pod with us, Digital Strategies Guild for the production support and to Fleet for the name suggestion; originally, I had suggested “Treasure Talk.”
Sambino: What can the community expect to see in the future with this project?
Braiker: When we started this project, we looked to provide news and updates to the community. As we continued to produce content, we found we enjoyed discussing projects that were being built in the ecosystem. After we hit about 10 episodes, community members started to contact us about supporting the pod, wanting to be featured, or suggesting a project for us to highlight. As a result, we’re now focused on providing long-form, engaging content whether that is an interview with a notable community member, or an upcoming project. As we look to the future, we have discussed a couple different ideas, which include: live streaming our recording sessions, providing content about more projects on the Arbitrum network (outside of Treasure and MAGIC). We have tossed around the idea of a POAP or Magic Hour NFT, but I don’t think we’re at any stage yet where that is necessary to be a supporting member of the community. At this point, we just appreciate all the support we have been receiving, and look forward to engaging with you all more as the next era of this ecosystem begins. We love community feedback and input. If you have ideas on how to provide better value or content, please reach out to us on Twitter, Discord, or DM any one of us.
