Magical Craftables were introduced with the Mondain's Legacy expansion. They require special Resources and Recipes in addition to the usual components required to craft the base item. However, they always come with at least one extra Item Property, which stacks with any other bonuses the item might receive at the time of creation. In this case, the bonus is:
- Bovine Slayer
- Hide Processing
The primary reason to carry the war cleaver is that when it is used on a leather-bearing corpse, it skins the hides, converts them into leather, and automatically places them directly into your backpack, thus skipping the steps of opening the corpse, moving the hides, and using scissors. A character must be standing close to, or on, the corpse, or the leather will remain on the corpse. The item will function while in a character's backpack as well as when equipped.
Due to a change in 2009 or early 2010, the Butcher's War Cleaver will continue to auto-loot leather until you are overloaded. Previously it would stop the auto-loot function when approximately 100 stones was left in the character's carrying capacity. While not wanting to sound like a RONCO product, it also shears sheep!
These functions are similar to the Skinning Knife, a somewhat lighter and easier item to obtain, but alas an item that must be equipped to work.
