    A carry on from this thread. Yeah I just can't help myself, but I'm actually interested to know what the broader figures are.

    Edit: Quest earnt runics are the same as BOD earnt, AFAIC.

    Shall I derail your thread by pointing out all the options you Didn't include in the list?

    I play a crafter and get my gear by Enhancing monster drops.
    I play a crafter and run around in GM exceptional non-runic.

    (the first one is actually valid, the other is just to be funny)

    You know, someone is going to HAVE to point out that your poll doesn't cover every single possability in existance, so I thought I'd get it out of the way early. :p

    If you're still making a crafter, then it's doubtful you're making decent weapons/armor. ;)

    actually i made a kick are set of sleeves on my tailor who isnt 110 yet and is still gaining arms lore (yeah i dont play her much)
     
  7. I like to do as much myself as I can..I gather wheat and bag it, I pick my fruit and veg to cook it I slay my monsters for meat and leather when needed I even spin wool for cloth. And today I found out I can milk cows so I am bonding one to my chef.

    For my repairs I usually use hubby's crafter who has tailoring and blacksmithy in the 120's

    What if I have crafters, and I repair my own gear and craft some items. I don't buy weapons/armor, I buy house deco and kegs?

    So enhancing stuff adds the properties of the material you enhance it with.
    But does enhancing stuff with a runic tool add additional properties?

    That option was missing entirely. Having a crafter and playing a crafter are almost entirely different.

    No. This is why I tend to forget about enhancing, you can't really make "decent" gear out of it. You can make some servicable items, yes, but let's face it - a character only needs one hat, gorget, sheild, etc so you might as well get the best available.
