Fine pewter can be made using one of the following recipes:
- 3 Tin bars + 1 Copper bar = 4 Fine pewter bars
- 3 Cassiterite + 1 Native copper, Malachite, or Tetrahedrite = 16 Fine pewter bars
Fine pewter has a material value of 5. This represents a significant increase over its component parts (which all have a value of 2), making fine pewter suitable for creating mid-value furniture and items. If you have an abundance of tin, this is the best form of pewter to make.
Note that bronze uses the same ingredients (though in different proportions), has the same material value, and is also useful as a mid-grade weapons material, while bismuth bronze is more valuable. However, you can produce 16 bars of fine pewter with a single unit of fuel (when smelting from ores), giving fine pewter a slight advantage over bronze if fuel is constrained.
