Reading posts and reading of how some struggle (like me) to get the items to make the mats for whatever you are making has me wondering which would many prefer.
Since I have started forging I will pick this one (it can go with cooking, brewing and other), would you rather go and hunt for the different mats needed, the orbs, fragments, gland, beans, trophies and more or buy them from someone who has done the gathering?
Which leads to the next curiosity, which would be better, to buy the containers of premade mats, the gums, boons, pastes, solvents, catalyst and resins or make your own?
I’m finding it a lot of work to go and gather all the mats I need to make all these items, then have to make them to use, so was wondering how do others see it, go and gather, or buy from those who have gathered? Make them or buy them already made?
