So i've made it as far as lvl 17 but i'm still walking around in gear that's lvl 4 to 12. I've been really unlucky with gear drops i guess --I've picked up crafting a while back hoping to use up some of those ingredients ive been saving up since the beginning of the game, but spending 30mins every single time i want to craft something (emptying homebox, transferring it all back etc) is getting annoying. So i was planning on using it all and sell everything besides some ruby's. My question;
How do i make rare/legendary gear? How do i make plate bracers/helmets. Can i add resistances/stats to plate boots/helmet/bracers. So far i've managed to add ruby's/essences to plate armor with some +2 strength/dex but this doesn't cut it vs stuff that drops/u can buy.
Am i suppose to use crafting purely to improve what i find/buy while being able to use 'common'(white) weapons/armor/boots each time i level up or is there more too it? I've checked the CR/BS topic but it 'seems' limited.
