I think the best sets should be empowered by items that can only be acquired through Masterwork crafting. :^)

I still don't think I'd start Masterwork :)

Empowering stuff is just like the regular grind - it's only there to keep you logging in.

Masterwork Profession:

Give the NPC 500x Tier 4 ressources

Next

Give the NPC three rare items from rare profession tasks

Next: Unlock new recipes and get a new common asset (8% quality)

Get the NPC 12 new masterwork profession ressources. To get these you need special scrolls to find the nodes that cost 3,000 guild marks for 6 nodes.
Two of the low tier masterwork profession ressources in a quality 3 task have a 20% chance at best to get one of the necessary ressources for the NPC (if it fails you lose one of the low tier unrefined ressource).
Took me literally month to get 12 gold nuggets out of gold ore (you need about 60 gold ore for 12 gold nuggets because of the low chance).

Next: New recipe

The NPC wants 6 of the former ressources and 6 more refined ressources and it can be that you need another masterwork profession ressource (not raw material from the nodes, already refined material) to do this task. For me it was 6 Gold Nuggets and 6 Gold Bars. 1 Gold Bar needed 3 Gold Nuggets and an Acid i only get from Masterwork Alchemy which has also only 20% to succed (which makes it very expensive). The best is, the Gold Bar has also only 20% to succeed, if it fails you get only one gold nugget back.

And the worse is: THE NPC CONSUMES ALL RESSOURCES HE WANTS!!!

So you start by 0 again and again. And if you compare the gear from masterwork profession, it is already out dated as it came out. Since then i am always selling the ressources of masterwork profession. It is a useless grind.
