What is the Maker Skill?

The maker skill is a new skill introduced in patch version 0.73. The maker skill was released at the same time as the Knights of Cygnus patch. The maker skill allows you to create items for your class. The catch is you cannot create items that meet any of the following:
-6 or more levels above your current level.
-Common items. (Yes, this includes Capes, Work Gloves, and the like)
-Gachapon items. (Sorry Heros, still have to buy your Stonetooth.)
-Exceed the level limit for your current maker skill level. (75 for level 1, and 105 for level 2)
The maker skill provides an advantage over forging from NPCs, or finding drops, because you have much more control over the turnout of the item.
