The wiki and several interviews and promo pieces I've found say

Quality is measured on a scale from 1 to 100 and ultimately effect all actions that are performed with a usage of that item: crafting, resource gathering and even combat.

That's pretty generic. I haven't found anything listing the actual effect quality has on a given item. Does quality of weapons affect their damage? What is quality of building material used in a house or wall do? Etc.

I think it would be good to make a list of what quality actually affects for the different aspects of the game.

So far, from in-game testing and what I can gather from the wiki, I have:


Food Quality

  • affects the amount of hunger recovered from eating it
  • affects skill multiplier

Tree Quality

  • affects the amount of resources (twigs, sprouts, boards, etc.) that can be harvested from it.
  • affects quality of resources harvested

Tool Quality

  • affects the number of hitpoints a tool has - that is, how many times you can use the tool before it breaks.
  • affects the quality of materials produced by recycling it
  • typically (but not always) affects the quality of good produced while using the tool (ex. Higher quality knife produces higher quality handles - see wiki for exact cases)

Weapon Quality

  • affects the number of hitpoints a weapon has - that is, how many times you can hit someone with it before it breaks
  • affects the quality of materials produced by recycling it
  • affects the damage dealt with a successful attack

Armor Quality

  • affects the number of hitpoints a piece of armor has - that is, how many times it has to be hit before it breaks.
  • affects the quality of materials produced by recycling it

Device Quality

  • affects the quality of final products produced with that device - that is, a higher quality forge will create higher quality tools.
  • affects the hitpoints of the structure (how hard it is to destroy by siege and/or decay)
