    Crafting in RIFT seems a LOT easier than most games, for example AION. It has a system much like WoW (for those who've played that), but afaik, correct me if I'm wrong, you can choose up to three professions. Much like the planned classes people are testing, it would be cool to see if there are people that are sure they will for example level Outfitting (so we know who to bother, send our cloth and pest for bags), Armorsmithing, etc.

    So far there are these professions in the game:
    Mining
    Butcher
    Artificer
    Bowyer
    Runecrafter
    Outfitter
    Forager
    Alchemist
    Armorsmith
    Weaponsmith

    Yeh, what you put above seems right. At the moment most creation professions require you to have access to at least 2 gathering professions.

    Armorsmith requires Butchery and Mining for example, but Butchery also yields bones and teeth that can then be used by Artificers and so on.

    The only profession that I can see so far that only requires only 1 gathering profession is Alchemist - but I haven't leveled it up that far so could be wrong.

    Im gonna be going with:

    Mining
    Butchering
    Armorsmithing

    Im really enjoying the crafting system in this game though im uncertain why, anyways, i'll be able to make chain and plate armor for people if they need it. (Unless I don't have the materials, then you'll have to supply me)

    Do we know if crafted armor/weapons are actually any good ?

    Just seems a waste of time to level up crafts that produce nothing but "level up items". Unless you can craft viable endgame PvE or PvP items, is there any point ?

    It always is, but how does it compare to ranked PvP gear, endgame instance loot, world boss loot etc. etc.

    In LOTRO, crafted was THE BEST gear you could get no matter if you downed the hardest boss or whatever. However, you needed things from bosses to do the crafts, so you still had to clear content, but the best gear was crafted.

    Just wondering if RIFT will be similar, as if endgame crafted weapons/bows/armor is not as good as instance/drops/worldboss/PvP gear, then those crafts are pointless as you only really care about the endgame crafting potential.

    I'm going hardcore Runecrafting for sure. Don't know aobut the other two proffesions but considering Butchering and Outfitting (for bags and runebreaking craftables).

    Meh, oh well so yeh you need 2 gathering profs for each craft.

    Easy enough though to team up, over the weekend 2 of us had between us Alchemy, Artificer, Armorsmith and the 3 gathering professions to support them.

    Outfitter is for cloth and leather armor, and also bags. Epic 22 slot bags at the very end game, omnomnom.

    Well I decided to go Runebreaker/Outfiter/Butcher. Chose outfiter coz its the easiest to support my Runebreaker which is a pain in the ass to lvl.

    I've done equivalent of Runecrafting in other games, used to the mechanics. Still professions in this game are cakewalk compared to other games.

    If it turns out to be crap at top level I can always respec to something more useful but from what i've seen it'll be okay.

    If the Artisians mark quests only require you to craft items and not actually go out and kill stuff I think it would be pretty darn good if most people pulled Butchering/Foraging/Mining on their mains and then have crafter alts to craft. One runebreaker is required in every party though for the BOP stuff, but that's about it. Gathering professions are hell if they aren't on your main.
