Crafting while you level?Follow

I come from WoW, where the only smart thing to do is wait till end game to craft due to the fact that you outlevel your gathering and crafting while leveling at around level 20(from my experience, unless you spend more time farming than leveling).


I have yet to craft in this game although I'm interested.


With this game is there gathering? And is it something you should do while you level your main fighting class?

Is crafting it's own entity where a crafter needs to put focused time into it and its not really a side project?


I'm kind of clueless as to how this games crafting works. Suppose I'll do some research too.

Yes there are gathering classes also. I'll probably level my gathering/ crafting ahead of my main class. I'll probably jump back and forth, but I like to have good gear. Crafting is something that takes time, though in my limited experience most of that is from gathering mats. If you want to focus on fighting first, I had enough gear from quests to keep me going in beta, so I wouldn't say crafting is absolutely necessary.

Gathering is pretty essential for crafting. For instance: Mining supports armorer, blacksmith, goldsmith, and some alchemy. You can buy most of the mats, but if you just level mining normally you will come across most of them, plus you can dig up HQ materials which give you a much higher chance at making an HQ crafted item, which offer better stats. It's pretty considerable; some +1 jewelry I made offered +3 CP over the NQ kind, which is significant.
