I am lvl 9 with 2 points in blacksmithing, but all of a sudden, I can't craft items with 3 components, or even when upgraded to lvl 3 blacksmithing, I couldn't salvage green items (less rare right)???? I've searched all over the net, and for some reason, can't access forums.amalur.reckoning.com or whatever the dev site is. any ideas??
EDIT: I went to a fateweaver and spent the money to redistribute my points. That seems to have resolved the issue, but still no explanation as to what might have happened. After upgrading my skills I noticed that the blocks turned gold this time, previously they were turning red when I selected them, and only after filling up all 4 (detect hidden) would the first block turn gold. Dunno what this means, but whatever, I can salvage and craft more now :)
