[Question] Quality level of crafter influences hireling material?

Hi all,

For sure the level of material is influenced by the level of material you can craft.

However, I could not find a recent thread about quality of the tempers/aspect runes we can receive. Are they influenced by the crafter ability to use those materials or not?

I think that was not the case in the past but not sure if that was changed.


ps: am talking more specifically about blacksmith, clothing, enchanting.

    I got golds when I was just starting out. However I've got more golds since I maxed out crafting lines. Could be in part to the passive when deconning but I'm getting more even in writ crates

    I receive VERY few Golds through the hirelings. MAYBE 1 a week.

    I get a MINIMUM of one per day by doing writs on two max level crafters. Usually I get 2-3 per day

    I have been getting a decent rate of return on refining, but I harvest EVERYTHING I see (It can be a real problem traveling from one place to another as a harvestaholic - it takes FOREVER get anywhere).

    Not from what I can tell. I have 3 mules at L6 to L13 with L3 Hirelings, and I get as many Golds and Purples on them as I do my max level characters with L3 Hirelings. Only one of these characters has any skill points other than hirelings specced into Crafting.
    Enjoy the game, life is what you really want to be worried about.

    I second Nestor. I have 4 characters with hirelings and only one of them is an actual crafter, so the most are getting the lvl 1 materials. I get gold tempers from the non-crafters just fine. Within the last week, I have gotten 2 gold tempers in the same shipment twice. Those were both from non-crafter characters. Getting kuta seems to be more rare for me than gold tempers in the clothing/smithing/woodworking, but that may just be my luck.

    You aren't going to suddenly be rolling in gold tempers from having more hirelings, but they certainly help if you have the points to spare on multiple characters.

    Tks for the answers!
    I know that hirelings are not a reliable source of good mats (rightfully so I think). But had a few spare points and was wondering if it was worth to invest just in hirelings. .. , guess it is :)
