I have noticed a lot of people being stuck on the marlybone crafting quest and it's not the time. It's not the gold. It's the ingredients. There is one thing people have trouble on and thats the mist wood and scrap iron. 1. Go to marleybone 2. Go to the royal museum 3. Go to Counterweight West 4. Go inside 5. Look around 6. Grab them and if there not there it will be in there next time probably
Trust me I did the same thing and I am almost a Grand Crafter
Mist wood and Scrap iron aren't hard to find it is laziness of the crafters involved. I completed crafting quest before KI cut reagent requirements in half, literally. Though it can be frustrating, it is easy, find your area/route and switch realms, it isn't hard, just a little time consuming. Do it and move on; I've lost count of the number of friends I've shown basic routes and realms switches to, and then they complete quickly. Seriously come on and just do.
