Skill Gain Guide: Carpentry Text Version: From Vendor Trained Skill to 47.3, I made Medium Crates. I used 3,750 boards. From 47.3 to 71.7 skill, I made Ballot Box Deeds. I used 10,000 boards. From 71.7 to 75.0 skill, I made Fishing Poles. I used 2,000 boards. From 75.0 to 87.0 skill, I made Quarter Staves. I used 6,000 boards. From 87.0 to GM skill, I made Gnarled Staves. I used 25,000 boards. Total Boards Used: 46,750 Note 1: I simply ran macros till boards ran out on this and did not attempt to do it as efficiently as possible. There is probably more efficiency to be had than this. I sparred up a separate Lumberjacker to 65.0 to supply my Carpenter. By the time the Carpenter reached GM, the Lumberjacker had only made it into the mid 90's skill-wise from chopping trees. Note 2: When doing any crafting skill gain, always give the Success Chance a look when determining what to make. If your Success Chance is 100.0%, you will not be gaining. This goes for any Difficulty-Based skill, but with crafting menus its really easy to see.
