I've neglected crafting a lot over the years - the highest I ever got on my main character has been 51 goldsmithing, and I've got 79 cooking on a mule.
I've decided to try to get my numbers up. That's all this is, purely a blue numbers vanity exercise.
I don't care about profit - I've got millions of cruor I'll gladly turn into gil - and I'm willing to literally just dump everything into it.
All the guides are for careful people who want to maximize profits, or at the very least, minimize losses. As such, their recipes tend to call for hand crafted ingredients which aren't always on the AH, such as the brass sheets I'm currently having to make myself on my goldsmithing mule.
Has anyone ever developed a power leveler's guide? A guide for "@#%^ profit, I just want to get the numbers up NOW!" crafters?
