Herbalist vs Poison Maker

AerowynAerowyn BUZZARDS BAY, MAPosts: 7,928Member
giving this game another go.. i narrowed down my crafting choice to these two..  anyone that has been playing for a decent amount of time have any input which they would suggest and overall which they would consider is more needed?

I angered the clerk in a clothing shop today. She asked me what size I was and I said actual, because I am not to scale. I like vending machines 'cause snacks are better when they fall. If I buy a candy bar at a store, oftentimes, I will drop it... so that it achieves its maximum flavor potential. --Mitch Hedberg

    Herbalist move a lot of pills, more than poison makers move poisons. Pills and poisons both sell dirt cheap though. Less than 1 L ea. on average. Either one, do it because you like it, not to get rich.

     

    At this point in the game you see more people using pills than poison. I happen to use poisons more for my style of pvp. 

     

    If you do go poison maker. Send me some scorpion powder please!

    any syggestion for another crafting prof aside from these two? whats your ingame name

    Tailors seem to be making good money, blacksmiths and craftsmen too for the higher end stuff. It's a hard call though, real hard. The thing is blacksmiths, craftsmen and tailors put a lot of liang into what they make, and often lose money. 

     

    Gatering professions like hunting, mining seem to do ok too. It's all profit, but it's all work too. 

     

    My best advice is to go with what fits you i guess. I wouldn't be surprised if someone told me I was dead wrong with what I said about poison making and herbalism. There are many ways to make a buck off all professions. 

     

    Don't need anymore people swaring blood oaths against me. I'll pm ingame name :p

    You start messing with bcbully, you start messing with me.  :P

    Anyway, I'd say Herbalist and Poison Maker are equals.  Poison Maker has the edge on equipment upgrades as they are the secondary upgrader to tailor crafts.  Herbalism is upgrading on jewelry only.  Poisons will become more popular as the game progresses.  There are simply not enough pure internal players like me to damage that market.  People WILL want piosons on their weapons, they are simply too powerful.
