I've been leveling a pure DEX/LUK merchant with the intention of crafting elemental weapons for my other characters. I'm currently level 40/30 with 41 DEX/45 LUK. I'm doing this partially because I don't think the 2-2 classes are coming for awhile, and because I don't plan on making a Sage for myself. Is the increased crafting percentage from going full DEX/LUK worth it? How much harder is it to craft elemental weapons with a combat-oriented Blacksmith? When I'm a Blacksmith with level 3 weapon smithing, oridecon research 5, and weapon research 10, with 50-60 DEX and LUK, what are my ultimate success chances going to be?
Also, if anyone could offer any advice on which to to use while leveling, and where to hunt etc. I'd appreciate it.
