There are 6 Manufacturing Life Skills in Age of Wulin - Tailor, Cook, Poison Master, Craftsman, Blacksmith and Herbalist. Each of the six fuel the game's player-driven economy in different ways, and any one is desirable for new and old players alike! However, unlike Gathering Life Skills, you may only learn one Manufacturing Life Skill at a time. Pressing "I" while in-game will bring up your Life menu, with information on each of the 6 Manufacturing Life Skills and more!
Tailors are the sole creators of high-end clothing equipment in the Jianghu. The quality of clothing and fabrics created by a high level Tailor is unrivalled, and cannot be obtained any other way. Tailors use materials produced and gathered by Hunters, Farmers, Craftsmen and more to create their clothing, and even have special skills for enhancing them! Below you can see a brief look at the most basic clothing created by the Tailor, and the materials required.

While some equipment may require the same base materials, the amount needed will likely vary. Tailors may learn new techniques to create new clothing by reading scripts scattered throughout the Jianghu, though many will require a high level Tailor to understand!
Cooks produce premium foods and single-handedly feed the masses of the Jianghu. Without cooks, every single Young Xia would go hungry! Cooking produces food which can give buffs and restory Satiety (hunger). The buffs provided by cooking ranges from increased HP or Internal Power to speed buffs and more! Cooks rely on Hunters and Farmers, primarily, for their ingredients. Let's take a look at some basic Cook recipes below.

Remember that not all ingredients are obtained through gathering, and some can be simply purchased straight from your local Cook or Farmer NPC!
Poison Masters are the manufacturers of all poisons and double-edged medicines in the Jianghu. They also have a unique gathering ability, which allows them to gather certain poisonous herbs! Poison Masters may also enhance clothing equipment, just like Tailors. Let's take a closer look at some poison recipes below!

Craftsmen fashion the Jianghu's finest jewellery and create many of the bases for other Manufacturing Life Skills. Craftsmen supply Tailors and Blacksmiths alike with necessary tools to continue in their work. Craftsmen are also responsible for producing most of the inventory expansion items in the Jianghu.

Blacksmiths are the sole producers of weaponry in the Jianghu. The ability to forge any kind of weapon is in their hands, enhanced by learning new techniques, gathering new materials and, of course, levelling up! Blacksmiths can forge melee (seen below!) and ranged weapons, including darts, throwing daggers and needles!
