Playing a 3.5 campaign I'm a 3rd level Warforged Artificer and I've just really started to get the money to look into seriously crafting stuff and have unlocked Craft Wondrous Items as a 3rd level class ability. But the same things keep coming up that keep confusing me. What the hell are my crafting rolls?
I understand that if I want to make a Longsword. It's 1d20+Craft(Weaponsmithing) vs a DC 15 check. Simple, yes, fine.
Now, I would like to Scribe a Scroll of Cure Light Wounds(CLW) (1st level class ability) It is a Single use, spell completion item and therefore costs Spell level × caster level × 25 gp = 1 x 1 x 25gp = 25gp Base. Or 12.5gp and 1exp craft. Now, what is the roll? Is it just a UMD check to fake knowing CLW (DC 21) and if I pass, I win?
Later on I'd like to make Wondrous Items like the Handy Haversack. Here is it's crafting list, "Moderate conjuration; CL 9th; Craft Wondrous Item, secret chest; Price 2,000 gp;Weight 5 lb." It doesn't reference any crafting skill. So aside from having the Craft Wondrous Item feat, and the UMD to fake knowing Secret Chest. What else do I need?
Nobody anywhere seems to explain this. So either it's glaringly obvious and I just missed the memo. Or you don't need a crafting check to make mostly anything that's not on the Crafting List.
