A guide to help you in regards to crafting

When you are requesting items to be crafted from guildies -

. Do your research into what you want
check to make sure you know the craftable set you want. https://eso-sets.com/sets/type/craftable

. Be prepared to answer the following questions:
What level items do you need? What trait on each item? What style on each item? What armor pieces? aka jewelry, weapon, armor and what equipment slot (head, feet, etc.) What armor type? aka heavy, medium or light What improvement level? Normal, Fine, Superior, Epic or Legendary(edited)

. Calculator to help you determine what you want and need:

. Do not expect the crafter to provide the mats.
You should provide the mats. Some crafters will accept gold instead, but check with them first. You can use this calculator to determine the mats needed http://msa-mraz.com/crafting/craftchart.html(edited)

. Give the crafter time.
Some crafters prefer an in-game mail and some prefer you wait while they make it. Check with them on what they prefer.(edited)

. Be available.
Don't ask someone to craft you items then run off to BG or a dungeon. No one likes waiting but you are asking them a favor, so the crafter shouldn't be the one waiting on you.

. Offer a tip in thanks.
Crafters are taking time out of their game to make you items, so be sure to offer them a small tip as a thanks. Many crafters will craft for free or will ask you to make a donation to the guild bank instead, but be sure to offer out of gratitude and respect. Don't expect them to do it for free.

. Ask questions.
If you aren't sure of things, ask the crafter. They usually are very knowledgeable about their crafting skills and what works best for different playing goals.
