My extreme crafter - in the making

    I have been attracted to the concept of an extreme crafter, and I wanted to run my character past you all for critique or suggestions.

    Tailor 120
    Blacksmith 120
    Mining 100
    Arms Lore 100
    Magery 100 (110 with jewelry)
    Tactics 100
    Chiv 70

    I have a very nice mage weapon bow for handling ore elementals, and I would be using magery as my generic utility skill. Chiv, of course, is to give me a damage boost against ore elementals (I think it would be better than say, anatomy or bushido, considering I only have 70 points)

    I am human, so I have 20 in focus / med / spellweaving / tinker / anatomy.

    Thanks!

    I am not shure about copper and valorite elementals. Those have a very nasty damage reflect and it could take you some time to take one down. (Since your abilitys to heal are not that exciting.)
    Aside from that, shadow and valorite elementals are immun to pets and player cast magic. That would leave the valorite ele as a trouble maker for you. (You could get 'help' from a blade spirit/casted elemental with the copper elemental.)

    Using a bow should be relatively safe against the valorites, and if the mage weapon bow is Spell channeling, you can use greater heal to heal any damage (if it's not SC, then you'll have to stick to close wounds when in combat).

    Be sure and do the spellweaving quest. if you can get some non-spellweavers onto a circle to cast arcane circle, the effects are greatly enhanced, and you can cast Gift of Renewal with a level 3 or 4 circle that even at 0 real skill, will give you about 8-9 HP every 2 seconds.

    And, while pets & summons can't damage the Shadow and val elementals, they CAN slow it down by tanking it for you, until they drop.

    I know that for a long time those elementals used to reflect only 1 point of damage when hit with a bow. Last time my archer nearly one-hitted himself by the reflect of a copper elemental.

    Hmm, well, the best I can do is try. It's going to be hard with only three skill slots to work with though. I figured that magery would be superior to a weapon skill in this situation, considering that I only have three to choose from. I guess I could go archery instead of magery, but it feels like magery would give me more versatility for when I find myself fighting non ore elementals. Having just archery would give me a broader choice in weapons and jewelry though.

    Archery/tactics/chiv sounds like it would be enough to take out most things i come across. Though, I really do love magery and I've already eaten my scroll for it, so it's a tough call.

    Update: I decided to make a more substantial warrior and soulstoned my crafting skills onto a new mule.

    Now I have:

    Mining
    Fencing
    Tactics
    Chiv
    Anatomy
    Healing
    Parry

    Should be much more solid!
