I'm a tool crafter. I like making tools. But without baskets I ain't got no where to put my tools. Sure, I can and do trade but I'd rather just be able to make my own baskets however small they may be.
Thats the back story kiddo's now to the meat of the problem here.
I started with Basketry at level 5. I sat there making a bunch of junk out of grass for enough hours to level basketry to 31. In that time I learned how to make hats, and grass plates... but no baskets.
I mean what are hats really? Just baskets you put on your head.. and moccasins are little baskets for your feet, but no baskets for my tools.
After a great number of hours in leveling *basketry* I think it would be fair that I learn how to make.. at least.. one small basket. Maybe just a pouch or something to encourage me?
On that same note, it seems like what you learn is fixed too. My buddy leveling basketry learned the same things I did at roughly the same time... so I ask you, has any NON basketry crafter received a recipe for baskets through the incessant grind?
Any others with different crafts having a similar experience?
