What Skill to Train to 120

    I'm finishing off my crafter and have 20 skill points left. What in people's experience is the most useful way to go:

    120 Tailoring OR
    120 Blacksmithy OR
    110 Tailoring and 110 Blacksmithy
     
  2. i would say tailoring, because if you want to enhance or craft good smithitems, you can use an ash+X.

    tailoiring you can only increase "passive" by using a talisam.

    What's ash+X?

    EDIT: Don't worry, Ancient Smithy Hammer - Doh!

    ASH +10, +15, +30 or +60

    Personally, I'd go for the 110 in each, because at 110 and 120 real skill, the number of iron armor BODs decrease for a smith. (from 25% to 15% at 110, to 5% at 120).

    With a tailor, a good talisman will put you at or near 100% exceptional chance to craft all the leather armor pieces at 110 skill (you'll almost never be crafting hide, studded or bone armor), and the enchance bonus difference between 110 & 120 is a whopping 1%. The only down-side would be 20% chance less success crafting the mittens, mantle & breeches, if you even have the recipes for them.

    I have +25% talismans for Tailor and Smith for both normal skill and exceptional chance so 110 sounds like the way to go.
