Eldevin has 14 professions which can be divided into two categories. The first category is Gathering:
|Fishing||Catching fish. The fish can be used in the Cooking profession.|
|Skinning||Skinning creatures you have killed. The produced meat can be used in the Cooking profession and the skin and hides are turned into leather that can be used in the Leatherworking profession.|
|Farming||Growing various crops on designated farming plots. The harvested materials can be used in Cooking and Tailoring.|
|Foraging||Picking fruits and other parts of plants, that can be consumed directly for health and energy or used in the Alchemy and Cooking professions.|
|Forestry||Cutting down trees and making them into planks which can be used in Weaponsmithing.|
|Prospecting||Mining ore and turning it into metal bars and ingots. The bars can be used in Weapon-smithing and Armor-smithing, and ingots can be used in Jewelry.|
|Crystal Cutting||Mining quartz from deposits and turning it into gemstones that can be used in Jewelry.|
Early on, it's quite easy to simultaneously level up your gathering professions and your character's own level. You'll gain a little bit of XP every time you use a gathering skill, so you can level your character quite fast if you're taking advantage of foraging apple trees while you're in the forest killing and skinning pigs, for instance.
(There's something so satisfying about skinning pigs)
The second category of professions is Crafting. You'll use the items you gain from Gathering to make rare, unique items that can't be found anywhere else.
For example, foods you cook can give you increased health and mana regeneration, as well as temporary stat boosts.
|Cooking||Cooking different food items that can be consumed for faster health and mana regeneration and various temporary stat boosts.|
|Leatherworking||Turning leather into leather armor (medium armor).|
|Tailoring||Turning cloth into cloth armor (light armor).|
|Alchemy||Mixing potions that grant instant health and energy and other stat boosts.|
|Weaponsmithing||Using metal bars and sometimes timber to create various weapons and shields.|
|Armorsmithing||Turning metal bars into metal armor (heavy armor).|
|Jewelry||Using metal ingots and gemstones to create amulets, charms, and rings, that all boost various stats when equipped.|
