Hi, there. I started EQ2 a few days ago, and I'm really enjoying it so far. I do have some questions about the tradeskill system. I've looked at different guides about it on the net, but it's still confusing, so if you could me out, I'd really appreciate it. 1.) At Level 9 when I choose a specialty, can I still use the Level 1-9 recipes from other specialties? For example, if I choose the Scholar path at Level 9, can I still craft a Level 6 Rawhide Leather Backpack from the tailor recipe? Or do I lose my Level 1-9 recipes that aren't from the path I've chosen? Same at Level 19 - for example, if I choose Outfitter at Level 9 and Armorer at Level 19, can I still use tailor/weaponsmith recipes through Level 19 even after I choose Armorer? 2.) How does equipment level relate to the recipe level? I'm noticing that the equipment recipes for Recipe Levels 1 to 9 are all for Level 1 equipment. Will all the Recipe Levels 10 to 19 be for Level 10 equipment? How does that work? 3.) I've started as a Paladin and I'm planning to use alts sometime down the road. What would be a good tradeskill choice for my main? I'm thinking either Alchemist or Armorer. As an Alchemist, I could make potions which are useful for all classes, as well as upgrades to my combat arts. As an Armorer, I was thinking I could always stay in top-notch plate armor, but if I can only craft new armor for Level 1, 10, 20, etc. and not in-between I'm thinking it might not be so useful. Of course I'm open to other options if anyone thinks a different tradeskill would be better for my first character. Any advice is appreciated. Thanks.
