This is to serve as a bit of a warning to new players. Not that crafting is a bad thing, but people might have some kind of illusions on the dedication and cost to do with crafting in game. Many of the crafting professions take quite some dedication and effort to level, and not many actually paying for themselves unless you are actively trading or crafting for others. To explain further, I played a merchant and crafter in DFO, I was typically spending 4-8 hours a day crafting, trading and travelling around the world. I never really struck it rich, but along the way I met a lot of interesting people, made some really awesome friends and overall, I had fun. (I also got killed by the fire dragon at least once a week) Raw materials, especially in the early stages of the game will be in short supply, and high demand, as guild crafters push for the higher tiers. Usually these people have others feeding them materials so they can focus on crafting as efficiently as possible. For a solo player, this isn't that efficient. For these styles of players you probably want to focus on killing mobs, and other people, not spending your life at a crafting bench banging away crafting low tier items just to get to the next tier to do it all again. I will post this here for those who need it: That is the crafting spreadsheet for RoA, based on the old darkfall online spreadsheet, but I will correct anything that is not right asap. As people may notice is that the costs for things is quite high, and you aren't guaranteed to skill up by crafting something. Quite often you are gaining 0.2 or less, and the costs are quite high. For that I recommend making friends, or finding out who are merchants who are operating in RoA such as myself. Someone who you can sell to who are reliable and can provide what you need, there's also a crafting clan BURN, who function the same. I don't want anyone to get frustrated so thought I would put this out there. As well accompanying video with a short Q&A by my SG, to hopefully be better. For those who are willing to put in the dedication, good luck. It's quite the tedious thing, but for those who want to focus on the other aspect of the game (the economic side) and give up pvping, it can all be worth it.
