Crafters Needed

Seek out an armorer for your armor. Tailors will make your cloak and hex dolls; jewelers will make your spells, and jewelry; woodworkers make your bow, round shields and ammo; weaponsmiths make metal weapons. When you have a crafted weapon created, you will likely want the "imbued" (not blessed), version.

Other Notes

Tiers: I know folks can be confused by the tier-thing, so here's the breakdown:

The only exception to the above are mastercrafted hex dolls, which are at the start of the tier (10, 20, etc.)

Armor: There are multiple flavors of chain armor to choose from: Chainmail (STR/STA/AGI), Brigandine (STA/WIS/INT), Reverent (STR/WIS/INT), and Melodic (STR/AGI/INT).

Shields: While many scouts dual wield weapons, there may be situations where they use a shield in their secondary. When they do, they are allowed to use a round shield, which will use the same rare as a bow from the same tier.

Jewelry: While scouts typically use STR/STA/AGI on their jewelry, there are some times when they'll want a piece of INT/WIS/STA jewelry as well, especially if they're a dirge who gets part of their power pool from INT. In addition to rings, earrings, bracelets and the like, there are also various other jeweler-made items from the rare root (scarves) and rare hide (belt, tomes), but since there is a jewelry revamp in-progress, giving class-specific recommendations on these will have to wait.

Dolls: Hex dolls begin in tier 2, cloaks become available in tier 3. Neither are yet available in T10, since we only have a partial tier, and the recipes are later in the tier.

Experts: the following level 70 scout experts were part of the EoF expansion (when the level cap was 70), and use the tier 7 rare, spongy loam, instead of the tier 8 loam. Make sure to check with your jeweler before obtaining the rare for these experts, in case there have been any recent changes to them.
