Before we do anything, let me give you a warning about crafting within
Despite what the evil denizens of your starting area will imply
when they insist you gather ingredients for their health potions, you
can *not* do any crafting until you complete your ascension and become
a daeva. That’s right. None. Nada. Zilch. Do you have any
idea how much time I spent roaming the land, looking for a crafting
trainer in the early levels of the game? Better me than you though,
Once you've managed to ascend and become the stunning
born to be, you'll need to make your way to the crafting district of
your capital city (Pandaemonium for the Asmodians or Sanctum for the
Elyos). Check the map to find the correct section of the city and make
your way there to begin.
There are six different crafting professions you can learn. To learn a
profession, just talk to the appropriate trainer within the crafting
district. While you can learn all of them, you can only train one to
the highest levels in the game, so keep that in mind for the future.
The current professions available to choose from are:
Create potions, magical weapons (spellbooks for casters), and equipment
upgrade items. The kids will be banging on your door day and night to
see what you've been brewing.
Create all metal armor pieces for the tanks
around the land. They may
not have a lot of brains, but it's your job to give them the means to
protect what little they've got.
Create tasty foods and beverages to buff you and your groupmates, not
to mention your customers. Sure, everyone could survive on gruel and
water if they really had to, but let's face it... nobody wants that.
Make wooden weapons and all the parts that don't fit into any other
profession. You're the one-man (or woman) cleanup crew. If it's needed
in a recipe by someone else, you’re the person to make it.
Tailoring cloth and leather
pieces is your life. It may not be
the most glamorous sounding gig in the game, but creating a powerful
robe will keep your local spell slingers happy. Trust me; you always
want to keep your casters
Thoughts of creating metal weapons consume your every waking moment.
Armorsmithing may be all about protecting a fighter’s noggin,
but you just want to see someone get brained with one of your
creations. If it was designed to be shiny and cause a world of hurt,
you were the hand behind its creation.
