    Default Fast tinkering

    Apparently you only need to do the first row and you still can level up tinkering?
    Do the chances differ from actually completing the recipe?
    And is the difference between trivial and say a green/blue big?

    You don't need to craft the highest quality (i.e., Pristine) of a given item to gain skill. In fact, you can gain skill just crafting the lowest quality. It doesn't appear that the chances to gain skill are any higher if you go all the way to pristine. However, as you craft Tinkered items, a portion of one of the materials (specified in the Examine window as a "By-product") is returned to you upon completion; crafting to higher qualities yields a better return on these "by-products".
    Also, it appears you can gain skill in Tinkering even when crafting items that are trivial (greyed out). It appears that there is no level limit to gaining skill. Your chances of gaining skill, however, will most likely be higher when crafting items closer to your level.

    Tinkering can be easily maxed in a (long and boring) day using these tips and lots of plat (if you dont have the materials in your guold bank). It's not hard, just tedious.

    Correct. You just need about 10,000 loams and toothpicks to keep your eyes open. 1-90 is hell.

    You want to be doing the hardest (but not red) recipe available to you at all times.

    dont want to disregard it, but i dont go fully with that

    i stick to green/blue or (if good TS-geared & skilled) white combines
    theyre usually crafted a lot faster than yellow/orange combines
    it *might* be that going yellow+ gets you a slightly higher chance at skillup, however, from my experience...just like grinding AA/XP, killing stuff with more xp granted isnt neccessarily most effective, its the killspeed vs. XP that matters

    thats one point....the other point is, that there are differences WHEN you cancel the combine
    where exactly was the the crafting tick (and buff+/counterstatus), when you cancel it
    i cant exactly describe that, one just gets a certain feeling when to stop

    of course its only my experience though, but i can easily make 75-100 points / h this way
    same exactly on adorning

    - Scientists have discovered a biochemical link between the overwhelming state of love, drug addiction and violence. These emotions are actually controlled by three very powerful drugs: dopamine, seratonin and adrenaline. -
    - There is a connection between drug addiction, mental illness and love at first sight. -

    The secret to adorning is to do the daily adorning quest, and to turn dusts into fragments and back into dusts until your eyes bleed.
