Please, Please never ever make the Belt, Cloak, Pauldron, Gorget, and Visor Templates!!!

Its a huge waste of your time and cobalt ores because as soon as you make it, it becomes worthless except for your one skillup attempt you got. Instead, make the items that other Cultural Tradeskillers need, such as Bracer, Sleeve, Helm, Boot, Gloves, Leggings, and Breastplate.

If you make those templates instead, you can sell them in bazaar to the people who have completed the Cultural quest for their race and have the bag of molds. That way you still get your one skillup attempt but now you got a huge stack of templates that have some value. Those can be turned into the Elaborate line of plate and chain armors by Cultural tradeskillers. Since you have done half the smithing already, it cuts down on the supply of Cobalt Ore that is needed for the finished product.

For details on what I am talking about see my post under 'Elaborate Stalwart Cuirass'
