I am just finally starting crafting (and mainly its because I am learning to repair my own gear). All repairing is straight forward, except that to repair my shoes I need Luaun Planks, which I have to create from Luaun logs. To me these are expensive and it sucked because I failed on everything I did, just kept failing and failing. How do you tell if a recipe is over my skill level? Or was I doing something wrong

1st step: Check the durability on your crafting tool, elemental blowouts can cause a lot of damage to them and low tool durability will almost always cause failures.

2nd step: I don't know how to tell the rank of a recipe, but luckily, apparently the people HERE do. They have Lauan plank listed at rank 0.

Good luck!

If the item is substantially over your skill level you'll get an error when you try to make it ("You decide to wait until you gain more skill before attempting that synth" or something). Apparently level makes a big difference in success or there's a surprisingly large amount of leeway in allowing you to attempt crafts that don't have a chance in **** of being successful.

And I wouldn't necessarily trust the rank levels listed on sites. There are plenty of them that were listed at 0 or 1 and when I tried to make them as Armorer 10 I got the "skill too low" error. Sometimes you can guesstimate the level by looking at the materials involved, but that's a shot in the dark.

When do people use primary/secondary tools?

I haven't been able to find any useful info.

Its kind of diffcult to guess too, example hemp cloth which is used to make low lvl armor need at least lvl8 to make confidently... with syn support. Low lvl armor can be made at lvl 3.
