    Are you on Siege or Mugen, or elsewhere?

    On Siege & Mugen, you'll need gate travel to move around with spells

    On all other shards, if you aren't marking spots with the Blacksmith, you'd be better off without Magery, and have the other 4 skills be a weapon skill, Tactics, Anatomy and either healing or parry. You can use Sacred Journey to travel with pre-marked runes, and a Paladin (especially an archer paladin) can handle most things you'll run into outside dungeons.

    How much are you planning on using Carpentry to make add-ons?

    not sure, im thinking i could go 100 for carp/tinker , just basicly need enough mage skills to recall and kill the small criters, like mongobats and run from the rest

    This is the crafter I run on several shards:

    120 Blacksmithing
    120 Tailoring
    120 Imbuing
    100 Mining
    100 Tinkering
    100 Arms Lore
    60 Magery

    I use gargish chars. I start all as mages so I can earn Queen's soul forge access. Then I train mining, then tinkering. I do smithy and tailor next and finish with imbuing training. On some shards I train carpentry too and have that on a soulstone to swap out with tinkering or mining.
