To be honest... I am totally lost here... what is the goal? Character, Crafting, Carving, TSS'ing level infinity? Pick one or more and level it up???
I get the basics:
... A Battler = a character that levels up character level specifically.
... A Crafter / Carver / TSer = a character that levels up those skills ONLY, they do not increase in character level.
... Certain drops can ONLY be found through different skills.
So, my main question is this (these):
1... What level is a good time to invest in buying Gear and when?
2... Would you purchase or make gear in intervals of 25, 50, 75... or 100, 150, 200 etc?
3... I prefer Bow / Quiver, what would be the best mods for a Crafter to build a set for me including some crafting / carving increase?
4... Gems... what are the best sliced gem to use in gear?
5... What level Crafter/Carver would I hire to help make these items?
6... Are there any other things I should take into consideration?
There are so much things to this game it is frustrating, but, the upside is that it is text based and I don't have to continually click...
