Crafting Guide – Woodworking

Woodworking allows you to create shields and wooden weapons from wood you gather in the world. You can gather items without learning a separate gathering skill.

You start out with one point in each of the crafting professions. Creating, deconstructing, and improving items levels your crafting skills. Once you reach certain levels, you can choose to apply your skill points to passive crafting skills. 

NOTE: To be able to craft items beyond the first tier, you must apply skill points to the Woodworking skill.

    Great tutorial. Could I recommend you add one for advanced users on how to power level these?

    • Exiled Messenger

      Sure, but I haven’t really gotten to the point where I could write a guide like that since I’ve never gotten past level 7 crafting.

  • Jose Aguilar S

    Can anyone tell me what the benefits are for woodworking after level 40? I can craft any style of wood everything else is enhanced to the max I just want to know if there’s any extra effect going past level 40

    • Travis

      I would also like to know this.

  • Kitai

    When I am deconing occasionally on items it will say “you are not high enough level to extract all of these items” or something to that effect. Anyone know what/why this is?

    • Tripp221

      your lvl of that particular craft is to low to retrieve the higher lvl mats to make that particular item

  • Rene

    I have the required materials and skill point allocation…. but I am still unable to craft beyond tier 1… wth?
