Crafting skills include gathering skills such as mining, woodcutting and herbalism, and production skills such as blacksmithing, carpentry, armorcrafting, tailoring, cooking and alchemy.
Every type of crafting skill has 4 tiers of availability:
- Level 1-20 Apprentice
- Level 20-40 Craftsman
- Level 40-60 Adept
- Level 60-80 Master
For each crafting skill, the more experience you have using it, the more your skill level will increase. However, once you hit the upper skill level limit for your tier, you will not be able to continue increasing levels in this way. Instead, you must first be promoted to the next tier by passing a special test. If you do not do this, the skill remains at exactly the bottom of the maximum level for its tier, no matter how many more times you use the skill. (Example: at the apprentice tier, the skill remains stuck at 0% of level 20 until you raise the skill to craftsman, at which point the skill can begin to progress normally.)
Basically, you will be able to reach the apprentice tier for every skill. However, only six skills can be raised to the craftsman tier, only three skills can be raised to the adept tier and only one skill may be raised to the master tier.
If you have maxed out the number of crafting skills you can have at a given ability tier (craftsman tier is limited to 6 skills, the adept tier is limited to 3 skills, and the master tier is limited to 1 skill), but you would like to promote another skill to that tier, you must first demote one of your current skills.
For example, if your mining blacksmithing and carpentry skills have reached the adept tier, but you would now like to raise your armorcrafting skill to the adept tier, you must first demote either mining, blacksmithing or carpentry to the craftsman tier. Only then can you raise your armorcrafting skill to the adept tier.
Once you have demoted a skill's tier, that skill's level will drop to the upper limit of its new tier level. In other words, if you demote a skill from the adept to craftsman tier, that skill's level will drop to level 40. This means that if you want to raise that skill to the adept level again in the future, you will need to start training it from level 40 once more.
