Honestly, you need to do one thing before you start this
need to identify why you're doing this. Are you doing it to
get to the
expert level and craft some obnoxious looking orange pieces?
doing this to collect all of the recipes and be THE BEST ARMORSMITH ON
THE SERVER?! Or are you just doing it to stay ahead of the
be able to take hits with the best of them with the latest in crafted
goods for yourself?
Based off that, there's three ways to your glory in Armorsmithing.
Hammer the latest and greatest work orders to plow through the levels
as fast as humanly possible, not caring about experience or recipe
rewards. All they do is clutter your inventory anyway.
2, Slowly work your way through the lowest work order possible
until you have your full sets of normal AND worthy titanium, and then
normal AND worthy durable titanium. Did I mention you
will be wanting both mail and plate? You'll grind the 110s
work orders until your eyes bleed. Create all will not save
3. Work with what you've got. Skill up when you can while

Nothing I say!
The Create All button is your lord and savior. So is the
shift + click
method of purchasing. Pick up about 600 titanium ore and the
respective charcoal. Press a button and walk away.
Go watch a good
movie, but you don't have time for Watchmen unless you're lagging
pretty bad. Come back to a skill level in the high 130's and
stack of much more workable material.
Push create all, but you'll have to buy some Acid first.
Wires and Chains should be your primary creations here, WIres taking
precedence for the first level or three. Once you have a good
what you're making for yourself when you get to the respective skill
levels, make the titanium plates needed as well. Keep in mind
probably be making both normal AND durable titanium versions, and the
durable titanium take the exact same wires, chains, and
up while you can. Make even more if you plan on trying
to get the coveted Worthy Durable.
This all depends on your patience. A combination of broker
and hard work clicking will tell you what level work order you want to
do. If either the recipes or the results are cheap for the
pieces you want, then you can grind the highest level work order
available and get on with it. If that's not an option, you
can run a
low class work order to have a shot at getting those recipes.
personally have a lot of trouble running more than 100 work orders
consecutively, so I end up buying one or two pieces per tier.
mileage may vary according to luck and effort put into it.
Craft the standard Titanium Set now that you have the skill, materials,
and recipes. All you'll be missing at this point is a handful
and aether crystals. Both of those may bankrupt you further
on the server economy, but it's worth it. You don't want to
depend on a terrible world drop rate ever. By now
seen or heard some of the horror stories about places such as the Fire
Temple that have been run 100+ times in a row without a meaningful drop
from the boss of the instance. Once that's done, start from
work order and run it until you feel satisifed with the recipes you've
received before switching to the highest available and getting it over

Armorsmithing is no more, and it's onto bigger and better things, or at
least tougher armor. Remember to keep scanning the Armor Flux
for bargains. If you ever plan on crafting anything without
Kinah from the scourge of RMTs, you will need some wisdom and luck at
the broker. Be patient and amass materials in advance when
opportunities to buy at a reduced rate. Unfortunately for us,
armorsmith is only as good as his flux inventory! Buy low, so
sell those armor sets high!
