The two best ways to level a crafter are rush writs and tradeskill apprentices. Grinding crafting items takes forever. Plus the rush writs will help level your guild, as long as it's lower than 105. And the writs give you status and city coins, that you can spend on things at the city festivals. That's kind of a win-win. The tradeskill apprentices give you useful potions along with the tradeskill exp; it's a slower way than writs to level with them, but it's pretty easy to do those daily. And I will send your Maj'Dul characters some bags in a bit, after I get into the game and can craft some for you.
