I have been looking into making magical items with a non-magical character. Naturally this brings up the feat master craftsman.
I get the part about the ranks count as your caster level for creating the item, and then your total modifier is what you use to make the item. So I am fine with that part.
Its the parts (paraphrased) which give me confusion.
Choose one Craft or Profession skill in which you possess at least 5 ranks. You can create magic items using these feats, substituting your ranks in the chosen skill for your total caster level. You must use the chosen skill for the check to create the item.
To me it sounds like I would have to take the master craftsman feat multiple times if I wanted to craft both weapons (not bows) and armor. You only have to take the magic item creation feat once however.
So, do you only need to take the feat once but can use multiple craft/profession skills with it, or do you need to take master craftsman multiple times?
