As our Guildhouse is still closed (all thanks to one player who does not show in the game ( wonder if he would be back this year) - crafting saga continues.

Once again - running to chop Massive Yew trees, fill silos with logs, prepare boards...and then switching to Carpenter. This time I made some 10.000 yew boards and immediately switched to my lvl.36 Carpenter. After recycling all the boards I was lvl.46 Carpenter, able to buy Journeyman level construction formulas.

For Carpenters in istaria can help with buildings. Masons can add some keystones and construction blocks from stone; Carpenters can add wooden construction braces and timbers. It was my chance to be of any use to the community...and of course, to gain some free xp. So I just went, initially to our plot in Bristugo, wrote down how many resources were needed...and began crafting. It was not too easy: 1 construction brace is made from 15 elm boards and 1 elm board is made from 2 elm logs. Therefore - 30 logs for 1 brace, and I needed some 22 braces and 80 timbers. But finally, after long runs, I made it - contributed to our Guild structures, gained xp for that. Next step would be contributing to other plot in Bristugo, it does need many braces and timbers. I am usefull as crafter, once again.

Of course, I was thinking about other schools too. Need to advance Miner (lvl.75), then - Mason (lvl.57), finally - finish Gatherer (lvl;.96). It is going harder with Gatherer, since I need 2 full silos to advance by one level.

I think it is fair crafting: yes, I do grind, sometimes getting no xp for what I am doing, but I am doing it to benefit the community. Yes, getting xp for that is cool, but I would do it even if I gain zero xp. It is even more fun to be a kind of  "invisible helper" - gather resources, help everyone in sight with building...and disappear so that no one would know who helped.

Crafting day was great. Today I will calculate resources needed for help and continue growing up Carpenter. Well, and if our Guildhouse owner shows up - will take up all trophies to my vault...
