Are there special cloths to wear for crafting? Like the + to control or + to craftsmanship, are those for crafting?
Yes. If you'll look at your crafting tool, you'll see it has stats for Craftmanship, Magical Craftmanship and Control, and these scale up as you get a higher level tool. Craftsmanship and Magical Craftsmanship improve your synth results; I'm not really sure what the difference between them is, though. It may be that which one applies depends on what you're crafting. Control is your control over the crystal during crafting. The higher it is, the more good crystal states you'll get. Wearing other gear that improves these stats further improves your crafting. Output, Gathering and Perception (which I believe gets called "Scanning" on the tools) improves your gathering abilities. Gathering influences your success rate, output improves the harvest of a successful gather. I'm not entirely sure what "perception" does. It may improve the range of your resource detection abilities. Edited, Oct 14th 2010 7:25pm by ChrisMattern
