    Moneys!
    Moneys for crystal!
    Moneys for soul stones! (They ran out of these.. )
    Moneys for Enchantments!

    It's not weather its doable its how much will it cost and how soon could you reach this goal, f.e. say Richto did not find a Crystal garden? His profession would stagnate..
    Sure if you are a well established smith with few decades under ur belt you will be able to buy stuff and pimp ur shit out with enchantments..
    however being a basic dude.
    You will receive very little exp and how will you level yourself up? HUH!?
    Krom beeing what lvl 11? When he came to the village and not even having a profession he was at least what 46 years old?
    Its define telly sinergetic the two professions, but without fighting or insanely great hacks with exp/coin making this seems a very long term strategy.

    Even bigger problem would be with your TP's, if you spend them on smiting nothing is left for enchanting.. if you split, then you will be very average if both areas.. Professions quests for enchanting will be expensive and take a lot more time than basic crafting quests.

    you assume that tp's will double for both professions. If they don't this multi-profession route will be severely limited

    Ok so Why then Beyan did not get two professions alchemist and Battlemage at the same time? He did not have magics skill ~lvl 45 ish or something?

    No I do not assume tp double for each professions. Read the later posts where we discuss it :)

    As for Beyan, he isn't a journeyman necromancer.

    Krom is a very young dwarf, given that dwarves live for several hundred years at baseline and presumably add to that as they grow in level/ stats. He might not be through more than a tenth of the lifespan of a tier 1 level 1 mountain dwarf given that they live so long. For dwarves, longterm means centuries. Krom was already very close to journeyman rank in smithing when he joined the village, working with the most basic of schematics. While he probably isn't swimming in money, having reached journeyman he can afford to pay for enchanting materials as those will increase the value of his products.

    To gain a crafting profession you need level 10 or 45.000 exp. Two skills at journeyman means 40.000 exp. Train a few other skills to level 10 and your personal level will increase.

    Poke what’s up with you calling Krom a SLACKER???

    Krom 46 years old only level 11 and no profession? Man Poke, don’t be so hard on the old boy. He can’t help it he was a late bloomer. Krom never bragged about it but he might be a level 89 with the ladies and a level 58 in parties.

    He was neither level 45 in death magic, nor level 20

    Sounds plausible, then having as many professions as possible before leveling in general would be a great way to increase TP's..

    He was lvl 45 or above in alchemy, that means he can become a professed dude in any profession ? say shoemaker or tatooartist!
    Why then Richto specifically asked Beyan not to become a professed Death mage but a professed alchemist?!
    It implies That Beyan could have became a professed Death mage! or battle mage! like Sumiko! Boom

    Or maaaaybe waited for a long time to get battle mage profession, still that makes no seance then he could just later on grab the second profession.. so not sure why Beyan was so upset with alchemy choise

    Beyan was going to wait till he was level 45 in Death magic to profess. There could definitely be an unknown drawback to multiple professions, if so I don't see it in the books so far.

    I do see an easy way to progress for alchemy.. not so much for Death magic.. you can't just randomly shouting words discover new spells.. but you can do pretty much the same with different herbs/plants to make potions.

    I'd hate to be the tester for that. Without a recipe you probably couldn't be sure of all effects.

    Would be true without the Dragons Cauldron (or the right Talent).

    Beyan would be Necromancer not a BattleMage, plus a BattleMage would be a Specialization not a Profession.

    True but I think we are talking about base noobs without access to those things throwing random ingredients in a pot? Its the rawest, most dangerous form of experimentation.

    Definitely one way of discovering recipes, but dangerous to be near while production is happening let alone being the tester that has to figure out the effects. Might need a very wellpaid kindir for that part, they are resistant to poisons and with a healer on standby they should survive the experience. They also lack fear.

    It is possible that randy is a tier 2 half undine already and since his race didn’t change the t2 status wouldn’t appear, or he is holding off on his ascension till he gets a decent chance at something specific. Nexus made it clear that unlike professions he doesn’t snatch people for ascension, it is more like they will themselves into his domain.

    Also, 45 was the threshold for humans (the lowest one) so Randy may not have reached his threshold at all yet it maybe 50 or 55 or 60 etc

    I am kinda hoping (in vain most likely) for richter to have a discussion about ascension with hysako and randy. It is not something he is known for, in fact for some reason he Continues to believe that correcting his ignorance is somehow shameful.

    I totally agree. Ricther needs to have several really long talks.
