    Crafting - How?

    How does one gather low level mats (leather) when you go to low level areas and the gear is based on your level? For example, I am level 73 and when I go to a starting zone, it gives me level 70ish armor.

    it doesnt always do and afaik you get the small bags appropriate to the level you fighting and they contain lots of diffrent mats

    You don't always get level-appropriate armour when you're in low-level zones. So just salvage everything that you don't need and loot the bags you get.

    You can buy low level armour from vendors to I think?

    Anyway, if you don't already see where I'm going with this, allow me to spell it out: the only meaningful MMORPG "endgame" -- i.e., something novel to do after the progression process is over -- is that of the sandbox.

    Leather and cloth in particular seem difficult to acquire. Im sure there is an easier way to go about it but I havent really found one yet. Mostly I salvage everything that drops and get a fair amount that way and dont forget to salvage again anything you make to get your mats back to make more. You dont get everything I dont think but enough to make it less painful to do.

    Armor venders sell your current level items. I went to a level vendor in a level 1-15 zone and they were trying to sell me level 70 armor lol

    Try the heart vendors, they should still be selling low-level items.
    To declare that a personal, inner experience gives certainty about the workings of the universe is to assign far too much value to one’s subjective sense of conviction.
    I’m not that arrogant.

    The brain, marvelous instrument though it is, isn’t infallible. It can misfire, seize or hallucinate, and it can do so in a way that’s utterly indistinguishable from reality to the person experiencing it.

    AFAIK the Sacs, Claws, Vials etc. don't change. Like you may get 70 armor but a spider in a 1-15 zone may still drop a tiny venom sac. Still don't know how the armor/weapons work...seems you get between zone level items and yours. Odd.

    You should salvage everything you don't plan on using/selling, and if you still don't have enough, roll and alt and do the same thing.

    It's annoying, but doable.

    By opening bags and salvaging hides. Focus on killing beasts to get more hides.

    Its not very efficient but its the way to do it.

    Another way would be to make a lvl 1 char and use it to farm, once it pass that lvl range if you still need more you can delete it and make another one.

    theres is tons of them on the auction house. Just buy them. If you are 70+ you should have more than enough gold. I think 250 copper ore for example was only like 40-50 silver.

    Events where you kill swarms of humanoids are best for getting the sacks full of mats. Just hit an aoe in the group and you can loot everything that dies and boom area appropriate mats .

    From what I've found, gear that drops from mobs may or may not "scale" to your actual level. Craftables like small venom sacs, tiny totems, etc, etc... Do not scale to your level. So any hides that drop should salvage into the right range for leathers. So long as you find the right area, and mobs, to farm you should get them, eventually. Of course the horrible drop rate for craftables is unchanged, unless you are lucky enough to find just the right spot.

    Easy, most intelligent races drop a bag in that bag can be any crafting Matt depending on the race some are more likely then others (IE krait have higher chance for scales, hylek venom, Grawl totems etc) in addition to those bags there's also trophies, like leather scraps, centaur hide, fur patches etc, those can be salvaged into the lower lv cloth and leather.

    If you're going for leather I'd suggest hitting up grawl and centaur as well as wild animals since they tend to drop more of it where the playable races tend to drop more cloth.
