I never got far enough along in Open Beta to know for sure but I think you have to work with Romaine for a certain amount of transactions before the next level crafter (let's say Paris) becomes available. Then you work with Paris for a certain number of transctions until the next level crafter becomes available ... and so on and so on and so on....
According to stuff I read or heard somewhere (I honestly can't remember where), I get the distinctt impression that it gets a lot better as soon as you unlock that next contact. Unfortunately, I never managed to get past Romaine in beta at all. Another thread mentioned that you have to do something like 60 transactions with her before she opens anything up. That seems somewhere between "ludicrous" and "absurd," given the severely limited number of things you can improve and the amount of data you have to put into improving a single item.
In OB it was set at 31 items but today a guy said he got it with about 63 items.
WOW! In Open Beta my instinct was that I would never really use Romaine because of how long it took to get the stuff needed to craft one item. If it takes 60+ transactions with her to move on then it's a safe bet I never will. That's ridiculous.
