In Topic: Which of these is cheaper?

25 November 2012 - 01:10 AM

Probably not; At least in the case of the Cloth Armor. If you just had to buy the mats for levelling your craft from 375 to 400 then it probably would be cheaper.
Though, unfortunetly you've then go to go and a buy a second set of mats to craft your own gear, which will add up to more cost than just buying the gear straight out overall.

However, it is a more satisfying feeling wearing gear you've crafted yourself, and for any other sets or alts you have in the future, if you already own the materials, it'll be better to craft it than to buy it. You might not have the materials now, but in the future you could when it comes to making stuff for an alt or an alternate set, so you could see it as as long-term investment.

However, if you've got no concerns for that type of thing right now, I'd probably just buy it. It takes a while to build the stash of Gossamer required and it's rather expensive on TP.

Jeweler however is a different story. The accessories are very expensive to buy and whatever you make with it they'll always be someone who wants it, it seems to be one of the more profitible crafting professions at the higher levels (and there's the odd cases in the lower level).

In this case, I'd probably say it does make more sense to get to 400 yourself (especially if you are so close!) and craft your own gear for it. I actually got a character to level their Jewelcrafting to 400 all the way from 0 because I figured it'd be cheaper than just buying the accessories for my 2 80's who needed them (and it was). The 400 stuff actually doesn't take that much to craft compared to the armor-making professions, yet is still just as expensive at TP (if not more).

Ectos are pretty expensive though, so I'd still recommend farming them yourself instead of buying them.

Engineers ARE good. The player at the keyboard is a different matter though.
THIS.
Engineers are great, I love having one in my party, and I don't think I've ever seen anyone turn them away.
They aren't played as much as some other classes simply because they are a rather funky class that doesn't quite fit in a fantasy world as much as some people would like...but it's a fluff thing rather than an effectiveness thing.

Chances are it's just you that is bad BloodTau, not the class.

In Topic: What size bags do people use?

23 November 2012 - 08:26 PM

Mostly 15 and 12 Slots, though I have the odd 8 or 10 Slot in some places still. My main also has a singular 18 slot (a Safe Box for my 3 Alternate Armorsets). Then of course there's starter 20 Slot on everyone.

Keep my bottom two bag slots Invisible Bags for storing alternate weapons and armorsets, aswell as the odd harvesting tool or consumable. I like Oiled Bags and Crafting Bags, though I plan to ditch my Equipment Bags when I can afford too seems they don't really seem to help with organisation much and just get confusing when I swap from a 1H+OH weapon for a 2H weapon and the game chucks one of my personal weapons that I want to keep in there along with the junk. For this reason an Exotic Bag from FotM would probably be handy simply to catch my own equipment when I swap out, but they are pretty expensive, so.

Anyway, in general 15 Slot bags I feel are the way to go though; Seem to be the best balance between capacity and pricing. 20 Slots quite simply aren't worth it at all when you can get five 18 Slots for the same price. Honestly I could see them halfing the cost of 20 Slot bags in a future update, especially since they decided to unfairly throw free ones out to a small select few of the playerbase that managed to make it to the end of the event weekend. Wasn't really fair on the rest of us who couldn't make it / get the chest for whatever reason.

@KotCR and Minos: Oh, undocumented ones then? Interesting. Any lore from them?
Not really for the one in Frostgorge, it's just an Active Event where he attacks you out of nowhere because you look challenging or something like that, then he goes friendly after the fight, says something like "it was an honour, until next time" and fades away.

There are a total of nine in the game at the moment, to my knowledge. One in Snowden Drifts, one in Brisban Wildlands, three in Mount Maelstrom, one in Straits of Devastation, one in Malchor's Leap, one in the personal story, and one that was temporarily in game as part of The Lost Shores content in Kessex Hills.
There's also one in Frostgorge Sound. Nearby the Dungeon, on the west side of the island underwater. Fought him the other day.
