Guilds and Crafting

Finally, I can blog again.  This has been a bit of a busy week in the Werit household which has prevented me from blogging and actually playing anything.  Luckily, that is about to change.  I have free time ahead of me which will be spent developing and playing ESO.

I managed to join up with my guildmates from WAR, Silent Reign.  Sadly, they chose the Ebonheart Pact as their alliance.  Foolish decision, as the Daggerfall Covenant will reign supreme.  It's still neat I can be in chat with them though. The guild system does seem ripe for cross-realm abuse in PvP though.  I know people can just talk out of game, but this just makes the barrier even lower.

I was moving along nicely on my Imperial Templar, but then I started to find resource nodes.  That led to me finding a nice route to collect them and me camping said route.  I gathered about 160 Iron Ore before I finally made my way to a city so I could craft.

I don't know if I am doing crafting wrong, but it seems incredibly slow to level.  My Blacksmith bar moves ever so slightly when I make something and then subsequently break it back down.  It's also not cheap, as I have to by Nickle for each item I want to craft.  Is there a trick to raising your crafting skill level?

The first items I crafted was Iron armor for my Templar.  I do like having a matching set.  The style system is pretty neat in this regard.  Add in the ability to convert almost any item to the Imperial style and you end up looking decent and not like a clown.
