    pic-36-thumb   Runes of Magic was released out of beta in March of 2009. The free mmorpg game has received good traffic and excellent player exodus from paid mmorpgs like World of Warcraft to be account holders. While characters have the ability to level any gathering or production professions as they like, only a few can reach top status.The game even has the ability to dual class. In the gathering professions currently available, players can choose from herbalism, mining, and woodcutting. These are good to get items to sell on the Auction House or use for materials in production professions.

    Gathering and Production professions both will allow you to level up your skills as many or as few as you’d like. However, there are some level caps in the game, and you as a player will need to know what professions you want to take to the top and which will satisfy you at lower levels. Players must have only one master level skill, three adept level skills, and six craftsman level skills. Level 1-20 of a gathering skill is the apprentice level, levels 21-40 are the craftsman level, levels 41-60 are the adept level, and levels 61-80 are master level.
