I main a lvl 80 Thief and I'm wondering whether it's worthwile to start crafting. If so, should I take leatherworker and jeweler for armor first? And then on my Engi I'd do Weaponsmith and the one where you can get Ranged Weapons? Can the crafted weapons on my Engi be used on my Thief and vice versa with the armor? I'd consider training a chef and another discipline on a future ranger.
Let's say my aim is to fully max my Thief regarding equipment and perhaps after that (in the long run) Engi and Ranger.
I never even touched crafting, so any help and tips I will look forward to!
On another note, I'd like to try out WvW on Thief, but i only got an ascended dagger, brigandine from the vendor (my first 5 grandmasters leatherworkers marks from pvp) and an ascended trinket with marauders stats that dropped by chance. Do I need full ascended to be able to compete? Or can I try it like that?
