At game's beginning I said to myself, "I'm going to just run quests and kill some baddies...level up as fast I can; forget about crafting".
Well, as luck would have it, an early quest led me to a crafting center. While at the crafting center, I couldn't help but be amazed by the number of people in the area doing crafting at the time and how neat it looked to see so many people pounding away at things with hammers, sewing things and cooking. So, having been sucked into the crafting center at that moment, I decided to talk to the master of apprentices to check out the different professions available. The Explorer profession caught my attention.
