Is crafting worth it?

Do people use crafted weapons and armor or only the dropped stuff?

What about the Food, Alchemy, and Enchanting?

    People use a mix of them, depending on build.

    The latter 3 will always be good.

    Well alchemy will help a lot, thanks to passive on lower pots cooldown. And about crafted gear, hmm there is like few good sets for pve not only as kind of started gear but even as best in slot viable, and some pvp good or experimental tho. I haven't regret of lvling crafting, hope this helps you.

    I do the crafting dailies and net a bunch of stuff, which I then sell for gold on the guild store, so it's worth at least that :)

    As above, crafting will always have the benefit of an easy method of obtaining gold, even if that only means selling the free materials you get every day, or actually 'selling' your services as a master crafter to make things for other people for gold.

    As for the gear it provides - crafting top notch gear can be extremely useful for creating builds, even if they would eventually be replaced by something you're trying to farm, it's very good for the journey there. Otherwise, sometimes crafted gear can be the best thing you can get (depending on what you want). However, as above, these services can be paid for, and some particularly generous crafters will craft things for free so long as you provide the materials.

    Alchemy and Food are absolutely worth it, and I'd dare to say are even necessary unless you want to throw money at someone to make stuff for you (but this is pretty wasteful).

    Some thoughts (and some of these points have already been made above):

    • Ideally, every endgame character has Alchemy leveled for the potion-duration passive.
    • The analogous passive for Provisioning is not important. It just saves a small amount of gold (or a bit more if you use expensive food.
    • You absolutely, positively should use crafted food or drink (usually food) at all times, both while leveling and in endgame. The only question is whether you make it yourself or get it from somebody else.
    • Many endgame builds use crafted gear. But you don't necessarily have to make it yourself.
    • Similarly for enchantments, on crafted or dropped gear as the case may be.
    • Quite a few endgame builds use bind-on-pickup weapons. If you use one of those, you'll want a crafter character who can upgrade that weapon to gold.
    • Similarly, if you use dropped armor from normal rather than vet dungeons, you'll want to upgrade it from blue to purple.
