many times have you
right-clicked an iron or titanium node? 
Countless!  I'm sure you have hundreds upon hundreds banked
and you're
just chomping at the bit to get out there and hammer it into a fine set
of mail that actually makes your character look good.  A noble
but let me tell you this--you don't have enough.

Don't have enough what?  Guts.  Materials. 
Fluxes.  This will destroy
your soul, your wallet, and your inventory to level up.  If
you want to
run around in a full blue/orange quality set, you are going to spend
multiple millions and in the case of some 40+ gear, multiple millions
per ingredient.  It's an RMT dream, and your nightmare.

But the road there isn't so bad.  Your armorsmithing career
will begin
with nothing
more than Iron, which when harvested, yields....
Hell yes, simplicity.  You will cherish it oh so much as you
Load up on about 500-600 iron ore and a few hundred thousand
We've got some noble steel to craft.


I didn't tell you to bring your wallet for nothing.  Purchase
a massive
stack of Charcoal Briquettes and bring that iron ore to bear against
your hammer.  Ingots, ingots, ingots.  You will be
using them to craft
this entire tier so it's beneficial on your end to create your supply
base while it gives you experience points for crafting and
Don't feel bad if this takes over an hour, I think my top crafting time
was 3 and a half hours for a Create All with materials to create 850


Materials, part deux.   This time you need more of a
focus though. 
Scan the broker to see if it's worth adding to your flux count for
Minor and Lesser Armor and decide how much of each Steel Plate and Wire
you'll need when you get around to making them.  Crafting
extra will
just clutter your bank or you can try to broker them (but very few
people buy crafted materials).  You can scan the design tab to
help you
make the calculations since you don't have what it takes to make them
yet.  Once you think you've got enough, make a few more of
each and if
you have to, do a work order or two to hit 50.


I haven't told you to buy any recipes for a reason.  You're
going to
earn them now.  Do work orders for this range, making
things such as bathtubs and lockers.  Once you hit skill 60,
if you're
planning on making any of the level 13 Minor Armor sets, do
them.  Same
theory remains--if you can get XP from crafting it, do it. 
This time
though you have profit or practicality in mind, rather than
stockpiling.  In the event you don't get a specific recipe
from the
shop by 90, go ahead and buy them up.  You might be able to
catch a
deal on them at the Broker.


Craft everything we can for Durable equipment.  Scan the
broker and see
what we can craft that will sell, or if you're leveling a class right
now that could use these pieces, give it everything you've got and
create all of the level 18 set one piece at a time until you get a high
quality proc on each piece.  This can crush your soul to
watch.  I
highly recommend hitting Create and alt-tabbing.  Not only
equipment take a lot of time, but this might be the only time a success
isn't good enough for you.  You need a Noble proc to really
cheer now. 
There is one thing though, and do not immediately sell your entire
inventory of non-HQ gear.  Sell it slowly so you don't flood
the market
or make it look like you could go cheaper since you made 10 of the damn

Ta-da.  With that down, you can move on to bigger and better
Titanium is up next and covers the level 20 range of armor. 
your crafting ability in the same range as your character is a daunting
task but oh so worth it.  You'll be rolling around in a set of
armor with big stats.  You can level that much faster when you
have to rest as much, and kill faster.  Don't pull any
punches, and
don't pull out any loans for Kinah at this point.  You've got
a long,
expensive road ahead of you and we'll see you on the next stop of the
Armorsmithing Tour, 100-200!
