Mention GU42 to a crafter, and it brings to mind the crafting "epic" quest for the solistice earring, crafting cloaks, mannequins for the home and other crafting love. Mention the same thing to an adventurer and they likely think first of epic weapons and the return of more deities.
Several of the epic weapon lines for adventurers also require that they either harvest, or that they have the aid of a crafter or two. The below is a list of what we know regarding harvesting/crafting portions of the epic weapon quests. Please submit any additions or corrections to this message board thread.
|Assassin||Artisan level 4 combine required||Special poison combine made from various quest drops is artisan level 4. Point confused non-crafters at the crafting tutorial if they've managed to get to 80 without basic artisan skills for heritage quests and the like. :D|
|Fury||Harvest 4 mantrap root, 5 smoldering material||Must harvest the roots (and material?) while on this step of the quest. Will require 340 gathering. (Roots are rare off both T8 root and T8 shrub nodes ... got harvesting tools handy?)|
|Guardian||12 fried king prawn heads, 12 torsis tea ice cream, 12 juicy cranberry cobbler||Can be bought off broker. All are made by T8 provisioners|
|Illusionist||4 redwood stool, 6 ornate ferrite chairs, 10 leather stitched cushion, 3 round redwood gaming table, 5 redwood table||Items can be bought off the broker and are all Tier 8 carpenter items|

|Templar||Requires that you not only harvest quest-specific ground spawns, but also needs 2 smoldering material. Level 10 artisan also required for a quest combine.||340 harvesting in one or more harvesting skills required in order to obtain the smoldering material, which must be harvested by the templar while on this quest step. 3 mineral salt loam, 2 rough kunzite also needed, but can be purchased.|

|Warlock||Harvest 6 mantrap roots, 10 smoldering material||Must harvest while on that step of the quest (not buy). Will need 340 gathering, other harvesting skills to 340 recommended. (Hint: tinkers and woodworkers, this is a good time to have extra harvesting tools for sale!)|
