    I never played a specialist. I am messing with one right now, and I have some questions:
    - is crafting useful at all in this game? should I bother leveling it? can I craft normal armors/weapons only, or intense and with abilities too?
    - I got some towers and gems when I chose the first profession. where can I get more gems to set up towers in the future?
    - does using towers cut the exp I get from grinding?
    - do towers disappear after awhile? or they stay till someone kills them or I get them back myself?
    - any other hints/things about specialists in general I might have not thought of.
    it is a Cora specialist, if it matters. thanx!

    1. Crafting is useless but not entirely, I would suggest making wind weapons because it is one of the best ways to earn extra in-game currency by selling those in the UTS/players. And you can only craft normal/purple/intense weapons/armors/shields, the outcome when crafting is random, so you either get normal/purple/intense.
    2. You can get gems from Pit Bosses or through processing ores from mining.
    3. You will get no EXP from towers, that's right... no LH EXP or hit EXP (Unless you hit the mobs of course.)
    4. Towers will not disappear, unless you remove them, someone destroys them or you log-out.
    5. Better wait for someone else to give you hints since I haven't really spent much time with my spec. :D

    Good luck!

    Towers used to be great for farming, but it's been years since I played a specialist. I'm absolutely shocked they don't give any xp, that seems ridiculous. I swear they used to, but that was another server years ago.

    Talk about a dead class that could use a refresher.

    Towers are still fantastic for farming (as long as they kill mobs fast enough to not take damage from them, and of course raiders don't kill em). Also making wind weapons is fantastic in a new server, but for an established server not so great. Crafting basically becomes useless as a server gets more mature, shame but the reality unfortunately :( .

    Truth. I really wish crafting would get a nice overhaul to make it worth playing a specialist. It's such an over looked game feature that could have been so much more.

    thanx for all your replies, guys! they do seem perfect for farming, if you dont get any exp. find a place and mobs you wanna farm, and farm away without need to de-level.
    two more thing to be clarified plese:
    1. I think read somewhere about crafting wind weapons. you craft a lot of lowest level knives hoping to get wind ones occasionally? what to do with others? sell to NPC? or people would be interested in some abilities and would buy some purple knives to extract those abilities?
    4. if I DC, I also lose towers?

    1. Yes, occasionally. Sell those to NPCs since those have no value except for wind weapons.

    4. Towers are removed and it goes back to your inventory after a few minutes from disconnecting.

    one last, I hope question.
    I was googling for more info on RF Online guard towers, and found some info saying that towers have a certain lifetime, meaning that even if I dont collect them, nobody destroys them and I stay online long enough, they are gone. and when I collect them, and set up again, they have less time left on them. is that true? or is it wrong or outdated information?

    Not true, maybe it was before but not right now.

    It's been ages since i played as ACC spec. I wonder what they have changed since then.

    As far as i remember hits/kills done by towers didn't grant any exp. Farming at Ether with lv45 spec and towers or killing low lvl PB's with aggro generators/tank friend/guild was the way to make money.

    Tower specialists in Acc weren't as rare as in Cora, probably due to nade launchers (any Acc spec around? Did they changed anything with nades?), but Cora specialists got sealed summons.

    Most of people used to have a spec alt just for that Ether farm, maining a spec was a rare case.

    if you dc towers will be back online if you log in back (most the time). if you logout they are gone (well, the tower stays in your inventory but the building stuff is lost)
    towers don't disappear on their own. can build some to kill a PB, come back 12h later and kill the pb again...
    towers give no xp, as was already mentioned
    towers auto target enemy races in range, but not monsters. thought their attack priority is always your target (until it dies).
    if the tower targets a player that the tower cannot attack (behind terrain) the tower will not do anything until it can attack the target again, the target dies or you target something new
    high lvl towers are strong but super expensive. as in super super expensive.
    Cora specs are pretty useless (all they have is res)

    sealed summons are far from useless ;p
