Artisans within Ashes of Creation must choose a path in their artisan skill tree. This inter-dependency establishes a supply chain from raw materials to finished product.[1] Each stage of the chain may require caravans to transport goods from one artisan to another.[2]

  1. Obtaining raw materials:[3]
  2. Refining the raw materials with the Processing profession.[1]
  3. Crafting the finished product using its crafting recipe.

As a crafter you're going to want to know where certain recipes can be fulfilled; which nodes have the capability of creating what you've processed material that you've gathered for; and then you're going to want to plan out your route to either transit the goods there or make sure that you're situated in the area so that you can go out collect and build in that area as well. So there's a lot of planning that's going to be necessary.[6]Steven Sharif

Artisan progression

Players must choose a path in the artisan skill tree for each character.[7] Within each of the three parent artisan paths (Gathering, Processing and Crafting) there are different professions. A character may only ever master one of these paths.[8][9]

  • Branching into specific paths allows the player an opportunity to specialize in certain areas. This encourages player inter-dependency, enhancing the artisan experience.[2]
  • It is possible to master every profession within a parent artisan path, but this will be a long and labor intensive feat, requiring many resources.[10]
    • A player may only master a profession if they have achieved the artisan path mastery.[11]
    • Based on testing, it may be decided to limit profession mastery certificates to a capped value.[11][12]
  • Masteries aren’t just about making an item. They grant many things, including titles, access to items, bargains, and quests. [13]
  • Choice of profession does not affect a player's stats.[14]
  • Characters within a single account (Alts) may have different professions.[8]

When we reference not being masters of all that doesn't mean you're not a master within your own one of the three artisan types, which is you know crafter or gatherer, processor. You will be a master of one of those, you will not be master of the other two.[9]Steven Sharif
