I'm a human elementalist and for me the obvious choice was tailoring.
But i'm having a bit of a hard time leveling it. :-)
It seems to me, that the amount of jute that is dropped in this game, isn't enough compared to other materials. I'm lvl 22 now, and i'm still spending my time running around in the starting zones of different races because i need that jute for leveling my tailoring.
Tailoring is skill level 52 right now. And as you know, a minimum of skill level 75 is needed, to use the materials of the second zone, which is wool etc., as far as i remember.
To set things in contrast, in all that time i have used to farm and search the starter zones, i have managed to level jewelcrafting AND articificing to skill lvl 90+ with the ressources that i picked up while searching for jute! :-)
What i'm doing:
-I specifically go after quests/events with humanoids in it, to increase my chance to get jute. (Can't even count how many centaurs and thiefs i've killed at this point). :-)
-I'm salvaging every piece of armor i cant use, to get jute that way. I of course open all bags and containers dropped by mobs to look for jute scraps.
-The way i level tailoring, is by refining everything of course, and then discovering as much as possible to get the bonus xp from new discoveries. So im really trying to get the most xp out of every piece of jute. :-)
Anyone else having this problem with tailoring, or is it just me? And if so, can you give me some tips or point me to areas where a lot of jute drops?
TL:DR - Can't find enough jute for tailoring, even though i specifically search for humanoid mobs to kill at this point. Have excessive amounts of all other ressources. Are you experiencing the same?
