Curious who our crafters are and what they're gonna be crafting. Also who our gatherers are that will be grabbing everything they find but not actually crafting.

I will be doing Jeweler and Leather working (whatever its really called) mostly focusing on making sure guildies get jewels as they level up (eventually I will have a nice stock pile of stuff) and making bags.

Well the really awesome thing about GW crafting is you can dedicate 1 toon to craft all crafting professions. Granted you can only have 2 active at one time. You can still switch between them, for a fee and not loose your skill level. In fact since you get xp for crafting the devs say you will gain about 10 levels per crafting profession and with 8 professions, that's level 80 on crafting alone. So that is what I'll be doing :)

Cooking + Jeweler on my main character, but I will start working on the others on alts from day one.

Since my main will be a warrior, I think it would be fun to play norn and buy the chef costume for him. We'll see.

I played around with a few different crafting skills in beta and decided leatherworker and huntsman* (gosh, I think that was what it was called...I could make pistols and rifles) are the way to go for my engineer.

By the way, there was an eight slot leather bag that I could make pretty early on. If anyone collects some leather scraps and wants bags I'm up for it...probably throw some in the guild vault too as I can. I think it took ten pieces of the sturdy leather patch or somesuch leathery piece I made.

I tried cooking, but it seemed awfully expensive. However, I did find a potato farm in the sky!!!

See you all at launch :)

alt3 = cook / ?


I would love to see something similar to Friday and Saturday morning crifting on GW2. Please Izzy....?, and all the other early morning crifters? Maybe resource map loop groups. I am willing to help plan areas, times, and even lead if needed. Since crifting usually lasted all day, I think we would be able to move through the entire world over the course of Friday and Saturday. Once we get all the node maps up on the website, we should be able to fine tune this down to covering the world each day. Anyways just a thought. :}



Anyone else like the idea?

I like this idea, though for the sake of NOT making it take all day (and since we would have to buy craft tools), it would be cool to keep it to 1 or 2 zones a day, that way we can do like 1-15/15-x zones on one day, and move higher the next day. I like the base idea, but it would definitely need some tuning, but that could wait til live to see how things work.

Jibbs, I've given a lot of thought to what we can do for a Crifting analogue in GW2. It's tricky. All of the materials are tier-dependent, and come from a certain level range in PVE. So we'd need to choose a tier to focus on.

Next, many of the materials come from killing mobs. Cloth and leather comes mostly from killing humanoid mobs and then salvaging the gear they drop. Humanoids also drop bags with all kinds of different crafting mats (except cooking). "Humanoid runs" are great for large groups since more people means more enemies spawn, and folks get loot from every mob they tag. We'll just have to coach folks to bring salvage kits, and take a bag compression break every so often to let folks salvage and deposit collectibles.

"Critter runs": trophy farming (blood, faws, claws, poison sacs, etc.) from critters. Usually each trophy type drops from specific mob types so critter runs will be more focused that humanoid runs. It can be grindy, but if there's a common need for a particular trophy/tier I can see it. Generally I think humanoids are a better "value". :)

"Cook runs" is another possibility. I found a heart/renown/karma vendor in Gendarran Fields this past BWE that had several different cooking supplies (nutmeg, vanilla, chili peppers, celery), all on one vendor. Rather than doing an entire zone with the raid, why not do a "Gendarran Fields for Cooks" run focused on the key hearts and harvests.

Lastly, nodes. Nearly every node is guarded by mobs (or players in WvW). I think if we have a We-Brake-For-Nodes policy in all of our runs, we'll get plenty of nodes too.


Back on topic: I plan to level every craft, eventually. First up: Jeweller, and Cook.

One brilliant thing about Gaiscioch is the Marketplace: it fuels crafting very nicely so we are sure to have lots of crafters in every profession. As it should be! Crafting is content for everyone, and in GW2 both crafting and harvesting level you up! More is better. :)

Some great ideas Lakshmi, I think if we can discover some dynamic events that produce the type of mats we need we could use those for our runs. Most dynamic events take a fair amount of time complete from start to finish and could easily be scheduled on the events calender.

Dynamic events is a great idea! Honestly, my biggest concern for GW2 "crifting" is how many folks we can pack into a zone before folks start getting sent to overflow.

Seems to be a can of worms. How the mats drop can be worked around, but the overflow system has the potential to muck up the day in a bad way. No way to really plan around it either until we see what the server population is like during those family events.

Gonna have to wait and see.

I plan on crafting and will probably work on all of them eventually. Probably have armorsmith, weaponsmith, leatherworker, and huntsman first to go with my guardian and thief I plan to start with.

As for events for crafting like we came up with crifting in Rift, I like the ideas we have going here. Of course, we definitely have to play around with the ideas to find the ones that work. Of course, that will be half the fun - can't skip the journey to the answer because that is where the craziest things happen. ;) Looking forward to the good, crazy times!

Compulsive gathering, always.

I like the idea of including gathering with the open world events that we'll be doing. In my explorations, I often found good ore nodes to be guarded by veteran mobs, so if you're gonna take the time to clear it, might as well have every take a swing at it.

For crafts, I think I'll coordinate with my son, Drakhor, and prob'ly with Avalonne to try to focus our resources. I found between all my characters in BWEs that I had enough basic ingredients to do one profession when all were combined (i.e. all the characters mine ore, but only one does jewelry, say).

My understanding is the Legendary weapons will require maxed crafting of all types by the character who is earning the weapon.

Bare with me here as I'm no expert, so of course start with a question....

What's the best "guide" for describing all the different crafting types? I ask because I have no idea what I'd want to do and figure I should research each one to make the best decision.

I didn't do any of the BWE (what's that stand for?) so be gentle =)

Odin, a quick note:

You can wait to start crafting in GW2. As best I can tell, you can choose to never craft and not at all be gimped.

But I suggest ASAP begin gathering, by buying and equipping pick, axe, and sickle, and hitting gathering nodes as you go about your activities. It's 'free' xp, contributes to achievements and daily-tasks, and will get you valuable stuff (either to craft or trade).
