Crafting is the ability for your character to create items that can be used or re-sold. There are 3 crafting professions:
- Garment or Tailor
- Foundry or Blacksmith
Your character chooses a craft after completing The Apprentice quest from Mastoo, Materials Supplier in the Town of Silence at level 8. The quest has you gather raw materials then as a reward gives you a letter of introduction to a crafting trainer. That crafting trainer then gives you your first Primary which activates your skill.
A character can only have one profession at a time. To change professions, find a Materials Supplier and purchase the Potion of Forgetting for 60 gold. This will reset all of your business skills and reset your business points. Next you buy the primary for the skill that you do want. Once the primary is in your bag, click on it to activate it. Primary's can be purchased from Materials Suppliers and also from Trainers. Both NPCs can be found through out the world, but most notably in Greenmont and Silence.
A Materials Supplier will give you those items you need to craft which you can not gather on your own. a Trainer will teach you more advanced skills. That is, you purchase Handbooks that have different projects. To purchase a Handbook, you need to have the pre-requisite skill level.
Skill level or your Rank is developed by producing crafts. Basics are:
- Have the Handbook
- Gather the Materials
- Produce the Item
To produce an item, go into your 'spells' menu and select your specialty. Within that menu, you will see all of the items that you are able to produce. Once you have the necessary materials in your bag, you can produce the items for use or sale.
|Profession Rank||Minimum||Skill Level|
Handbooks for the primary rank can be bought from the profession trainers in Silence.
Recipes are "instructions" to creating new pieces of equipment using crafting. Recipes come with the crafting skill you choose and they can be looted. So far they seem to be rare drops from treasure chests and monsters, but they create items that are usually more powerful than the basic recipes the crafting skill comes with. what about the items made
Leveling up in a craft is satisfying.... Up to a point. But spending time or gold on materials to craft items in order to level up a few points can be frustrating if you can't make a fair return on your investment. It is tempting to sell all of the identical pieces you just made all at once on the auction. DON'T!!!! Even if you need room in your bag and chest for all those materials you're farming, it makes absolutely no sense to drive down the auction value of every piece of armor of its class being auctioned when it cost you, on the average, 2 gold for every piece of Light Sliver or Mage Cloth, or Normal Armor Scrap in its recipe. Sell it for at least what it cost you to make. Sell the majority of what you make to vendors for a little cash, and then keep one or two of its kind in reserve to sell at auction. This practice will increase the rarity and value of the crafted armor You and other players make.
- Main article: Tailoring
Tailoring involves making clothing from cloth materials. Cloth items are useful for mages and monks . At early levels, Grenadine and Normal Quality Armour Scraps are used with Normal Yarn to make low level boots, gloves and similar items. These materials can be found by killing humanoids (goblins, bandits, etc.).
- Main article: Leatherworking
Leatherworking is all about processing skin materials to make Leather equipment. Leather items are mostly useful for rangers. At early levels, Poor Fur is the main material needed to produce garments. One of the best sources for Poor Fur are the Small Black Bears, who live in the mountains (but close to the road) between Greenmont and Windmill Farm. Another great source of Poor Fur are the boar west of the town Silence, since there are quite a few of them, they respawn quickly, and the chance of Poor Fur dropping is high.
