Don't think they are that hard to get. getting tools to 50 is very easy and by then you have all but the master stuff which includes 2 types of rods. Anyone can be a tool crafter to get needed tools at this point.
It's only hard for the first few hours. Sounds like anyone can grind tool crafting to 50 and get all 124 items on that list. Don't yet know what you get at master or what the "special" tools are for taking tool crafting.
