This post will give you a beginner’s guide to the professions in Neverwinter so you can level faster.
The basics covered below should help you get started faster in the game and make faster progress.
Professions make up a large part of Neverwinter and you will get professions quite early on. All the classes in the game have a resource gathering skill and you will find that fighter types will start with Dungeoneering while Trickster and Rogues have Thievery and the Clerics will have Religion.
Control Wizards have Arcana and the fifth resource gathering skill is nature and to use this you will need to purchase kits from vendors.
While you will need kits for the nature skill you can buy kits for any of the gathering skills and this is the fastest route if you want to start crafting in Neverwinter. The kits are inexpensive and you will get a lot of materials you can use from them.
While you cannot mix and match skills with these kits as in a fighter will not be able to disarm traps with a certain kit or a Rogue will not be able to reveal a secret doorway you can use them to build up resources.
You will normally get resources from Nodes.
You will find nodes anywhere in the game and if you just want to accumulate money you can sell the resources you get. With all of the resources being stored in a different tab you don’t need to worry too much about your inventory getting full.
When you get to level 10 you will get the True Professional skill and you can speak to the professions guys in the market area. You will get the basics of the professions if you take the time to read through this quest.
By the time you get to level 10 you should have a fair supply of raw materials that you have collected along the way. A good way is to select a profession and you can select anyone you like and then sell the stuff you make on the auction house.
You can also hire a guy to make your stuff and this takes only 5 seconds.
All you need to do is keep an eye on the Overview tab and you can click the Collect Reward button and you will have your own worker.
You can send out your worker to gather materials and if you want you can use Astral Diamonds to whizz through your training.
