I’ve been having serious trouble finding any blueprints for the low-level crafting components. I’m not talking about rare stuff like ancient hearts but the low-level non-faction ones like Blessed Whetstone.
It’s just struck me that maybe the reason I can’t find any of them is because of my loot filter (IE: They’re dropping but I can’t see them). Some time ago (around clvl 20-30) I set it to exclude yellow or white items. Will this have meant that potentially important blueprints will have been lost amongst drops I’ve been ignoring? I had (wrongly?) assumed that blueprints wouldn’t have been affected by that filter setting, since they’re more like blues/purples in my mind.
If I’ve been stupid and accidentally cut myself off from these really important blueprints, can I viably farm them by going back to earlier areas of the game, even though I’m now hilariously over-level for those areas? My char is now lvl72 and I’m missing even the lvl25 blueprints. Any hints on where to go, if I want to do this?
Alternatively maybe I’ve been terribly unlucky and my loot filter was never a problem but they genuinely didn’t drop. If so, the “can I go back and farm them” question still stands, because I still need them. I’m now running areas which are way above the level range to drop those blueprints so I have no hope of finding them where I am.
I realise I can buy some blueprints I’m missing from faction vendors but I have basically zero (IIRC only one I picked up ages ago) of the non-faction ones and it’s blocking me from crafting all of the important “good stuff”, because of missing low-level prereqs.
