Your are wrong u can make your proff easy iv max diff proff on 3 chs blacksmith/mining, enchant/jewelcrafting tailoring/skinning /cooking by my self and farmed all mats my self. Just dont be lazy and u can do it lol.
Cooking is by far the easiest one to start with.
U can still make copper marks i know for a fact with highrisk mats at a bench there made with the items that drop and needs 5 per to make a mark.
And no u can easly farm in highrisk as long as u have 111 itemlv that u can easly get off ah or from a few dungeon runs . And if u are farming highrish area 1 u only lose items from your bag.
2nd buying a highrisk scroll cost give or take 30g+ u can easly make 100G+ just on copper marks and make proff.Its how i started back a few weeks ago.
And there is still farming golden pearls that like i said sell for 400G+. that any one can do.
U sound like u never even tried farming highrisk or pearls before .
