I believe that using a tree diagram or Sankey diagram system on the crafting tab (specially for relics) would massively simplify the operation.
Any of these diagrams can also have a special table with the total amount of the level-n components required for an specific item. For example: for “x” relic, you need:
- 10 tainted brain matter
- 7 crystals
- 10 polished esmeralds
