Barkscratch : Ding 8 outfitter. Ground out some more crafting levels. Well, grind is the wrong word. It’s varied enough that it’s still quite a bit of fun.
That said, there’s some things wrong with crafting. There’s no recipe window; and no way to tell which recipes give you XP and which don’t. I do get messages in the UI when I “master” a recipe, but I’m supposed to just remember that ? The only way to see your recipes is to target a table and act like you’re going to make the item; and there’s no XP indicator that I can decipher.
And a minor advangtageous bug : I believe I got more Dahknarg artisan faction (2) in Halgarard than in Dahknarag (1). If that’s by design I don’t understand why.
I even did crafting “wrong” and managed that level. You see, I was making everything quality level D. The rumor is you get more XP for a higher quality level. When I was trying things out at higher quality, I figured I would be getting paid more, and when I didn’t get extra coins, I gave up on it. The way it works is, you can get XP at item creation, and work order turnin. With quality D, you get no XP at creation.
Got tired of crafting ultimately, and headed back to Derogar’s Outpost for more diplomacy, Ding .60 The skillups take such a long time to come. I’m waiting for 60 before I try any other NPC’s.
