    A while back I created a new character on a server I’d never been to before so I had no friends on it. I wanted to see how self-sufficient I could be. I also wanted to take my time and not worry about leveling quickly, but try to explore places I’d not seen on other alts and stuff like that. I also decided I’d focus on crafting with this toon. I had other crafters, but with the level increase from 80 to 90 with Sentinel’s Fate, I hadn’t bothered to craft beyond that on my 1 crafter that actually was 80, and I’d never even bothered to get the Earring of the Solstice for that toon either.

    So anyway. . . this “solo” character is now in its mid-50’s as an adventurer, and is a 90 sage (with Earring), 450 Transmuter, and 450 Tinkerer to boot. tinkering is surprisingly quick to level — I’d guess I got from 0 to 450 in less than 6 hours all told — but with the caveat that this assumes you have a nice full crafting depot in your guild’s hall that they don’t expect you to necessarily keep restocking. So long as you have mats it’s fast, but without a ready supply, it takes much longer.

    I admit, it’s very fun to have a wizard that can Feign Death and has a 50% chance of being able to rez the priest that forgot to give out feathers when the group started. Crafting has definitely been very rewarding to work through on this character.

    When I eventually get back to EQ2, I plan on getting him his flying mount via crafting ASAP. Sounds like way too much fun to miss out on.

    Stargrace, your posts on crafting and housing made me nostalgic for EQ2. I just started up in the game again (and it’s an unfortunate time, as in a week I’m going to have family over as house guests for two months — very limited playtime!), this time on AB. I don’t remember how to do anything, but it’s fun trying to figure stuff out.
