Thank you ...Thank you...Thank you... I have done all the crafts but scholar seems to be the hardest to master. This will help a million!!!
I went from apprentice to Supreme Master scholar in three days. It was boring to go to ruins and study the pottery, but totally easy to master. Much, much easier than other professions like Weaponsmith for instance. I think scholar might be the easiest of them all. Of course, that is, if you start when you are high level, then the mobs at the ruins are grey, and don't see you.
