Another legendary Noob question...

In your legedary item window there are 4 Sockets for relics. the far right is for a crafted relic. In order to get an item for that socket, you have to be a member of the guild for your crafting skill (mine is woodworking).
In order to make a barter item for that socket you have to be in good standing with that guild, in order to get in good standing you have to buy recipes and make those guild standing items (small supreme carving, Medium supreme carving, etc)
in order to get the wood you need you have to go out and harvest?

question is, Am I over complicating this, is this what you have to do, this will take time since the guild standing items have a cool down ranging from hours to days.
