Or is it not even worth doing?
All you need is GM armslore and a 100% chance to craft an item exceptional. Otherwise you could waste a charge from your runic kit.
arms lore? for tailoring?
I think I understand your question because I think u have the same issue as me in that it's hard to get "mid-grade" equipment these days. I have GM Tailor (created because of this issue) with GM Arms Lore and make myself horned/barbed leather suits (without runics) and the end result is a suit with about 57 resist across the board. With some mediocre jewelry I can get 70 resist in categories I need most (i.e. fire, energy, maybe physical depending on char). I use that to limp along until I hit the BOD lotto and get some runic kits. I would love to just buy a decent suit but I'm with you paying millions to get it is just not in my budget.
Arms lore adds a bonus to exceptionally crafted items:
- 5% more di on except weapons
- 5% more randomly distributed resist on every except armour piece
If you dont have arms lore but are a human crafter, you get 1% di and 1%reists on armours from JOAT (human racial bonus).
If you canc raft an item with 100% chance beeing exceptional, your tailoring is high enough to possible get the best results out. BUT ... tailoring with runic kits is always a lotto. You can get one or another really good pice but usually you end up with nothing.
That someone in luna tries to sell an armour piece for 7 million, doenst mean that someone else will buy it. It just could be that much overpriced that it will stay forever on that vendor.
Getting tailor runics (or better: the bods for them) just needs a lot of time:
You can get a tailor bod everyhour, if your skill is low (0.1 is enough). At 0.1 you are only getting small plain cloth bods, that can be filled very cheaply. If you turn them in on you main tailor (100+) you have a good chance to upgrade them. After each turned in bod you can get a fresh one. On top of that, you are getting 100 coloured cloth from turning in those small bods. For most of them you need less than 100 cloth to fill. As long as you can supply yourself with those small 'junk'-bods you can fill them with very little (gold) investment. With 6-7 chars on every account, you can collect many small bods, if you spare a single skillpoint (0.1) for tailoring on each of them.
