You can pretty much buy any recipe for 1k-3k gold ...theyre not really a dam that cant be overcome by new players. Since then xp was doubled for crafting stuff and there are methods of gaining xp these days which are just as beneficial if not more ... That doesnt have much to do with leveling crafting ... Why not ..if theyre dedicated players its possible - 100-200 mil craft xp/ month totally douable . On the other hand if you log in once a week play for 10 mins and wonder why you cant reach the highest level on server...well Obviously ..else we d just have every new player start the game at adv lvl 141 where Mac is atm. Of course ..for many players its the journey that matters ...the getting there part ....and i dont believe in saying never...with enough dedication anything is possible . I have a few players id like to catch up with, who have few hundred mil more craft xp then i do ...it may or may not happen doesnt mean ill stop trying or that ill quit over it .
