Bestiary crafting is a part of the Bestiary league mechanic, specific beasts you capture can be used to help craft your end-game items with powerful crafting effects you wouldn’t normally be able to use, these beasts are usually rare, expensive to buy and can be difficult to come across in SSF.
What is Bestiary Crafting?
Splitting Items Bestiary allows us to split an item into two different items putting half the mods on each, this is useful because it allows us to make an exact copy of a base, keeping sockets & socket colours exactly the same. A lot of people use this craft to make copies of 6 linked chests with off colours. This craft cannot be used on influenced, fractured, synthesised or items with enchantments.The unique beast required for this craft is called “Fenumal Plagued Arachnid” and requires 3 other rare beasts.

Creating an Imprint Thanks to Bestiary it is possible to create an imprint of a magical item, this means when we have an item with a extremely rare mod (i.e tier 1 increased physical damage), we can use Bestiary to create an imprinted version of that item, if we were to Regal Orb it and hit a terrible mod, we can safely try to annul it without any fear of hitting our physical damage modifier, if we hit the physical damage we can then use the imprint to restore the item to how it was when we initially imprinted it.
