I posted this question in the Corsair forum but didn't really get a response so I'll try here too.
Corsair is my new favorite job. The short and skinny of it is that I want to level all crafts needed to make bullets.
What I'm wondering is if, when making your own ammo, there is a big enough difference between HQ1 and 2 to warrant leveling ALchemy that high. Perhaps even Rangers can give me their perspective.
Basically to be in HQ2 tier I'd need to level ALchemy to 80 and Smithing to 61, so I just want to make sure it will be worth my while or if the difference will be negligable enough to just need to stay in the HQ1 tier.
To sum it up, since I tend to ramble; from the perspective of making your own ammo, is there enough of a difference between HQ1 and2 tiers to make it worth leveling the crafts that high?
