I started the crafting quest in Regents Square.(the one after Wul Yham) When i started it, I realized it would take me forever. Even with all of the reagents. CAN YOU MAKE THEM EASIER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It isn't your log on time that is used, but 'real time'. Just start a crafting just before you log off, and when you re-log the next day, the crafting is done. With two slots, you should do each quest while you sleep.
They have made them easier. Now, instead of 5 of each you only have to make 2 of each recipe. As well as now you have the regeant transmutation recipes to help you make the regeants needed for those quests.
And for the regeant hunting, change realms in a good drop location. You can change to a new realm every 60 seconds, and there's 27 realms. So in 27 minutes, by making a 60 second run between realms, you can pick up a fair amount of those regeants.
Crafting gets progressively harder through each world. You have to learn to be patient and strategic as to when you craft. Personally, I craft either first thing when I log on, or just before I log off. I gather reagents constantly, changing realms every now and then helps. Crafting is a SIDE JOB. You don't gain a lot of experience from it, but you can make a lot of gold once you can craft the gear from the higher worlds and sell it at the Bazaar.
