Quality Craft 2 Using your amazing expertise in crafting specific items, you can now craft them better than other blacksmiths. But real mastery is only for those who are determined. You will inevitably lose your skill in one gear while advancing another. Advancing this skill improves your learning curve and increases the chance to craft a higher quality gear. Category
The the advance is shown from 1 to 5 and it takes around 30-40 ??? crafts to get guru state. Changing the guru category will take less crafts than the initial guru state ???. Maybe the number of crafts needed to get guru state is depended on level of Quality craft?
Following are two examples for becoming guru, its not known if the progress is random or depended on QC level, category or crafted tier.
- Shield/Dagger guru needed 38 Crafts to get guru State with QC 1

Repair and Reinforce
When a guru or aspiring Blacksmith does Reinforce and Repair, he will lose some ??? of his profession for each repaired/reinforced item.
The guru gets a chance to craft higher quality items when the craft equipment of their category. Those enhanced items have an ID with a letter at the end, for example
w39e for an enhanced Composite Bow with +1 , +1 compared to normal Composite Bows. Items that have Mana on them also gain additional +5 per quality level.
When crafting Quality the Blacksmith gets following message when ordered:
The [CW2]Batman has ordered Rainbow defender for 999 . Crafted with love, it has some quality. You feel exhausted.
Every level of the Quality Craft skill gives Blacksmiths higher chances for crafting quality also some levels unlock higher grades.
The chances of getting higher quality gear increases and the chances of lower quality equipment declines with Higher level of Quality Craft too, for example there is a higher chance of getting E quality equipment from a QC 2 guru than from a QC 6 guru.
With February 2021 Quality Craft 6 is highest possible level, but with "Quality improvement chance" bonus of Guild Alliance its possible to craft one level of quality better.
Alchemists with Alchemy 5 or greater can interweave three items of same quality to one item one quality higher. Three E quality items can merged into one D quality or three A quality can interweaved into one SE quality.
