Each skill you use to craft gains you points in the class. At 300 and 500 points more recipes become available to you.
Every character is able to take on all the skills at the same time up to a maximum skill level of 500. After reaching a skill level of 500 in a crafting skill a player is allowed to take an Artisan Test, which will increase the level cap in that skill to 800. However, you may only be an Artisan in one skill per character. Once you reach a skill level of 800, you can test to become a Master Artisan. Once you complete the first Master you may then take on your second Artisan Craft.
A player can reset a skill to 500 using a Revival Fruit purchased from any Profession Vendor. If you reset a crafting skill, all recipes know that are above 499 will be lost forever and any investments made with be gone.
The crafting system requires production points (PP's). PP's are used for each gathering attempt (10 PP) and are also used to craft items and materials (varying PP cost). PP's are account bound meaning that all characters on the same account and server share them. PP's are not shared between servers. PP's regenerate at a rate of 15 PP every 5 minutes while online, and 15 PP every 20 minutes while offline. There are items that can recover PP's instantly and can be bought. Crafter's Cure restores 1,000 PP while Crafter's Cure-All restores 4,000 PP.

Crafting is generally a 3-step process:
Learn the Recipe --> Gather the Materials --> Craft the Item
Most recipes follow this guideline, but some can be longer.
Most recipes can be bought from NPCs. The rarer ones, however, can only be obtained as drops from mobs or bought from other players. Once the recipe has been obtained, learning it is as simple as right-clicking the recipe from the player's inventory.
There are three ways to get materials:
- Gathering the raw material yourself
- Dismantling items and receiving materials
- Purchasing materials from NPCs, other players, or the Trade Broker
Gathering is a necessary part of crafting. While most materials can be bought from other players, some must be gathered by yourself as they cannot be traded. There are four kinds of raw materials that can be gathered. They are:
- Ores are gathered through the Mining skill
- Plants are gathered through the Plant Gathering skill
- Essences are gathered through the Energy Harnessing skill
- Fish are caught by Fishing
