Three vs. One

When you first acquire your crafting profession, all crafters need to carry around three different tools, one for each profession in their vocation.
Inferior tools are given to a character by the Master or Mistress of Apprentices when they first choose their vocation.
Basic tools can then be purchased immediately from a supplier or your vocation trainer for 2 Silver . While an improvement in durability over the Inferior tools, they are still cumbersome to use -- taking up valuable bag space and requiring the changing of tools depending on the resource type being harvested or the item being crafted.
This problem is easily aleviated. While it is possible to purchase these individual low-level tools from various expert crafters, or the supplier, it is barely necessary.
It is recommended that the player obtain the vocation specific 3-in-1 Tool which combines the three (previously single) craft tools into one item which offers the following advantages:
  • Frees up three slots in your inventory. (The 3-in-1 tools can be permantly equipped and need not be swapped in and out of inventory.)
  • Eliminates the need to switch tools as you swap professions (to gather or craft)
  • Provides a Critical Chance bonus when crafting and a reduction to Harvesting Duration when harvesting crops or resources, depending on the current activity.
These vocation specific 3-in-1 tools may be acquired in one of two ways:
This item is Bind to Account therefore it can be shared between characters on the same account and server. Its statistics are those of rare quality superior Tier 5 tools (example).
The Universal Toolkit's buffs (statistics) are now only exceeded once a character reaches level 55 and can use better tools crafted for their vocation by a Metalsmith's Guild member - the Supreme Tier 6 Tools of the Armsman (incomparable)-icon.png Superior Tools of the Supreme Armsman.
  • It is possible to have an Apprentice Metalsmith (T1) craft for you, a set of "3-in-1" Tools appropriate for your Vocation:
(Note: these tools are tradeable and are therefore available from Kinmates or other players, and occasionally found in the auction house.)

Tools of the Tinker (common)-icon.png Tools of the Apprentice Tinker
Tools of the Woodsman (common)-icon.png Tools of the Apprentice Woodsman
Tools of the Yeoman (common)-icon.png Tools of the Apprentice Yeoman
Note also, that while readily available, these Apprentice level crafted tools do not provide the same level os bonus as does the Universal Tool Kit. Only at higher levels (above level 55) do the crafted 3-in-1 tools have bonuses which exceed that of the Universal Tool Kit.
Equipping a set of these "3-in-1 Tools" immediately frees up 3 slots in your bags! PLUS it eliminates the need to switch tools as you change profession! PLUS the tools give increased critical crafting bonuses and dramatically cut down on the time necessary to harvest (but not prepare) resources.
