why aren't there crafting services

Just a thought: why don't high lvl crafters not sell their skills? It could still be less expensive than buying things like that on AH:

Someone gets the items, brings them to the crafter (for example to the appropriate guild), gives him some money (say like 100 to 500) for his work and takes the risk of items being lost if the attempt fails. I mean not just for the power bow but in general.
For the power bow that would look like this:

Coeurl whisker: 500 gil
elm lumber x2: can be found (as elm logs)
wool cloth: don't know the price but it's far below 10k
scorpion claw 500 gil
wind crystal: not much

That would be much less expensive, a high level crafter would get some easy money and we could get our power bows. :-)
Any crafters to volunteer?

ok first u can get all these items from finding them in the areas
Elm Lumber-ok u may need to spend some money and time finding hachects and harvesting points but it will cost u half the gold
Wool Cloth-Find off goblin weavers/buy from the weaving guilds
Scorpion Claw-fight scorps and its free
Curel wisker-fight probly
it will be alot cheeper if u do this AH is my last resort right now

Farming/camping/harvesting does not make the product cheaper to make. You still have to count the gil that you lose by not selling the raw materials on the AH. Buying the parts or farming them is a trade-off. You either spend the time gathering the parts (and forego the money gained from selling on AH) or you spend the gil (and save the time it would have taken to gather the parts). Either way you are down 10-12k gil.

For myself, there is no way that a lvl 20thf/10mnk is going to farm coeurl whiskers, as the lowest level coeurl is lvl 30. Granted, the whiskers only sell for about 300gil each, but the point is that farming is not always an option.

Ok I'm really confused now. There are those saying that you need 28 Woodworking/8 bonecrafting and then there are others that say you need 26 in both skills... which is it?

First off, yes, this bow is hard to make b/c: 1) it requires lvl30 (to ensure that you won't fail) in both Bone and Wood. 2) It requires several materials, 2 of which are expensive.

These are the costs (on Asura AH's, paying guild prices is quite higher):
2x Elm Lumber = 4000 gil
1x Wool Cloth = 5000
1x Scorpion Claw = 500
1x Coeurl Whisker = 500

So that's 10k, plus the crystal. So getting 12-14k for the bow is not making too much profit, we're not ripping you off. Also, that profit doesn't come close to covering the cost of a failure. That said, ~15k for 10 additional slots is worth it, IMHO.

PS: I read this whole thread, but forgive me if any/all of this is repeating. I'm just telling what I know.

14,000 gil is too expensive because after playing for a week I don't have the money. I am earning it slowly but it is not easy. Working on skillz.

This is a joke, right? "Because after playing for a week I don't have (14,000 gil)."

Well, get used to it. At 56, I'm happy when I can manage to have that much.
