simply put I need to know how to tell what items I can make?
Uhmmm, as far as crafting goes most of it is just guessing/reading online recipe books and going off of what your current crafting level and mats are. along with what guilds you belong to.
I use the wiki a lot to look up crafting recipes. Also, you can talk to people in the guild and they will give you recipes that they think are level appropriate, but most of those have ingredients that are a pain to get.
thanks I just got the game and im loving it, that was the only thing I really needed to know, wish they did it diffrently but oh well
oh one last question are you able to join all the crafting guilds?
Yep, you can join all the guilds, I recomend you do actually because I think you need to join them in order to turn in the test items.
You can only contract with one though, meaning you can only turn in items to one to get the special synth abilities/items.
You can switch guilds after you get the item/ability you want tho. I was contracted with the woodworking guild so I could get the lumberjack ability, then I switched to alchemy so I can get everything from there. The bummer thing is you loose any points you have with that guild when you switch, so make sure you spend your points before you leave.
You can only take one craft to 100, the rest to 60 (with the exception of fishing, you can take fishing to 100 also). You need to remember to turn in test items to the guilds when you get to crafting level 8-10 (18-20, 28-30, etc) or you won't be able to level over the 10 (20, 30, etc).
You will also want to use the online auction calculator and/or your own calculations to calculate different recipes once you get to the mid-level ranges and on. Failure to do so can lead to a lot of lost currency.
