    Is crafting worth it?

    As a Marauder is there any value to doing crafting? At the moment I just buy what I want. Don't want to spend lots of time doing crafting missions if I can better spend that time in a punch up with something. Just want to know if not doing it will eventually hold me back?

    Crafting is useful if you want to make your own stuff, it's not particularly good at making money, you can make as much running dungeons.

    Depends what you enjoy,

    My internet is not that good so i tend to craft a lot rather then run dungeons due to lag. but lately been doing both.

    But my character is always broke more or less from the crafting side. Appart form my lvl 50 blacksmith which can make money - not much but enough to fund my other crafting larks.

    You won't miss anything content wise.

    Good choice on Maurader btw, it's a fun class (lvl 50 here) but it depends who you run with as a lot of people only want to run with paladins as they are the more popular choice of tank apparently (i prefer warrior)

    Right now there isnt a big need for money but when houses drop for indivudual players you may want some. I played the market for 2 months and have saved 5 mill gil for my own house. Haven't played in ages but should get back into it.

    Thanks both! Sounds like I don't need to do much crafting for now at least. Which is good as I much prefer running around making lots of noise and swinging my axe.

    I'm really enjoying this class. Makes a change as I usually pick a fireball wielding, lots of flashy spells kind of class. Loving the Marauder though and am looking to choose Warrior job later.

    Crafting is useful for sure. My buddy crafted me some kick ass armor for my character.

    When they first came out we could not afford one. and lately we have not talked about it.

    not many of us left either that play regularly.

    A small fc is around 2mill at the moment with around 7 of us playing regularly soooooo about 290k each would do it.

    Yeah i am saving up as we speak - got about 150k at the moment. Just trying to see what i can make that actually sells.

    HQ goods are always a good shout.

    Not sure how much the mediums are but if we buy a small then we can upgrade to a medium (minus the price of the small) when we need to. Would be good to have a perminant base of operations.

    yeah definitely agree, also i think it might be more than 290k being that someone else left the FC yesterday.

    I think we have about 300k in the FC coffers.

    Crafting is more for fun. The developers have said time and again that it will never be at the forefront of the game.
    But you can still make money with it.

    I crafted when the game came out and got up to 1.7 million then down to 100k then back up to 700k in the last few days.

    I'm a 50 carpenter, does that help?

    Does everyone want a house? I'm not buying a house if people haven't contributed or only come back because we get a house.

    I am up to around 200k, working to get as much as possible - thinking we could all donate and then do a clear out of the guild.

    If we agree to get a house, i will donate what i got to the FC chest.

    If we decide before friday then we can all donate for friday.

    Edit - i am a lvl 50 blacksmith if that helps.

    I joined the blacksmiths guild last evening. I equipped my hammer and suddenly I was stood there in my bra and pants. Quite a shock I can tell you. Being of low intelligence (but high vitality) I stood somewhat bemused for a few moments before equipping my trusty greataxe again and donning my clothes.

    Think I'll leave he smithing until I've built up my gladiator class.
