Thanks for the reply, appreciate it. As I read it, I had just finished using the Armory Station to setup the 2 free slots, one each for crafting and not crafting. For the not crafting one, I deallocated skills from various skill lines I knew I wouldn't use for the crafter, but still leaving it with enough armour and combat skills to effectively forage for crafting materials.You can do both in one without using the armory. You get skill points from main quests, public dungeon group events, dungeon quests, and leveling up your PvP rank as well. Though to answer your question, yes you can set up one profile as crafting and one as not crafting. Just be sure to make yourself a system to make sure that you don't accidentally overwrite one when you don't mean to or lose out on build updates. My system is that I read carefully the build I'm on, overwrite it to save changes, and then swap to the other one and load it.
I've done the main quests, all 3 alliance quests (i.e. main quests in all alliance zones), and seasons 2 (daedric wars) and 3 (dragon), and I'm currently on Markarth main quests. I'm basically doing the chronological order thing. As a solo player, I've done 7 of the easier group dungeons, and am slowly working my way up to the tougher ones.disintegr8 wrote: »Yes, my understanding is that the Mundus stone is not saved but everything else is. The only thing you need to do is keep carrying the gear from any saved builds.
I've saved several characters existing build before mucking around with different gear sets and skills and never had a problem re-applying the original build. The first thing to do is save your current setup, that way you can revert back to it at any time. If you want to play it safe, you can always take screen shots of any skills, CP, or even character stats as a backup.
I'd also check if there any other skill points you're missing?
Things like DLC story lines, all 3 faction quest lines, group delves/bosses/quests, etc. Check if the character has points assigned to things it no longer needs. Points assigned to things like research aren't needed once all traits are learned.
My main crafter has all the points he needs to both craft and fight without me switching setups (but I am CP1665 with 6 years of gameplay).
I never said I wanted to do everything on one character, so I don't know what prompted that comment. All I wanted to do was to continue leveling up crafting without having to create another character, and I've achieved exactly that by using the two free armory station slots. That's why I updated the thread title with '[SOLVED]'.You can’t “do everything” on one character, because that character can only be one class. Once you embrace the need for alts of other classes, then the alts don’t get all the weapon skill lines, just the ones where their class excels. Then any of them can be a crafter, too.
I started at the other end. My intended dedicated crafting character became my best tank.
