Professions Help / Info
MapleStory has 5 professions which allow you to craft items, but before you're able to do this, you need to learn a harvesting skill which will allow you to collect the necessary materials used to make items. Read the short introduction below to learn about Harvesting, Crafting and some of the benefits that professions have on Traits.
Harvesting
Harvesting consists of Herbalism and Mining and is the process in which you extract some of the ingredients (ie, flowers and ores) which can then be used to create Armor, Weapons, Accessories and other items.

Herbalism allows you to gather flowers and seeds to create oils which you can use to craft items and potions. To learn Herbalism, you must talk to NPC Saffron, who will lead you through a tutorial and a short quest in order to gain the skill. Herbalism is the prerequisite for learning Alchemy.
Mining allows you to gather ores which you can use to craft items and potions. To learn Mining, you must talk to NPC Cole, who will lead you through a tutorial and a short quest in order to gain the skill. Mining is the prerequisite for learning Smithing and Accessory Crafting.
Crafting
Depending on the Harvesting skill you've chosen you'll be able to pick from one of three Crafting professions.

Smithing allows you to create a wide variety of armor and weapons using ore. To learn Smithing, you must first learn Mining and then speak to NPC Gere.
Accessory Crafting allows you to create various pendants, shoulder accessories and rings useing ore. To learn Accessory Crafting, you must first learn Mining and then speak to NPC Intaglio.
Alchemy allows you to create buff and transformation potions using oils. To learn Alchemy, you must first learn Herbalism and then speak to NPC Ally.
Professions and Traits
The use of some profession skills can also improve your Traits. Insight can be increased by mining ores, Dilligence by making items and gain Empathy by gathering herbs.
