I didn’t think it was possible to kill crafting even more AGS, but you did it! Now because of the really amazing OPR cache drops, crafting is even more useless. Why should I craft anything if I can just play OPR or do dungeons to get better gear?
Good update by the way. Just wanted to raise more awareness about how BAD crafting is right now. I was saving asmodeum to roll some armor, but I think I’ll just play OPR a few weeks to see what I can get from that instead.
At this point I assume the March patch will just delete crafting from the game altogether. Honestly, don’t mind playing OPR all the time, but feels bad knowing I wasted my life leveling up crafting early game.
Not BiS or anything, but this is definitely useable for great axe light armor build right since it has two good perks? This is the only think I have 600 expertise so I assume I would have gotten more stuff that is decent. How is increasing the odds that you get good gear not a net negative for crafting? That literally makes no sense. Even if crafting is still viable, crafting getting worse this patch is not a false statement. So how many times can crafting get worse in each patch they release, but still be viable? Get real. Let me guess… YOU DON’T CRAFT.
You literally say you burnt too much money crafting, but in the same breath you say crafting is not dead. I’m just going to say you agree with me and move on with my life. You like crafting being dead because you don’t do it anymore. It benefits you for crafting to stay dead. That’s the reality. You’re just a contrarian.
I was thinking come back to the game, because they fixed a lot of bugs in this update, but if craft is so inviable I will postpone my decision, because craft and gathering is what distinguish NW from others MMOs, aside with cadencial combat.
Crafters like to gather, craft and selling things, it’s the core of our playstyle different from players who like to engage in wars or dungeons, because fighting is the appeal, the gear is the middle not the end.
If someone know what they plan to do with craft in a long term, please explain to us. They made a good system just to put aside. Just think if they implement active skills to craft, more animations to gathering and craft like Potion Craft: Alchemist simulator and others games…
They need to add OPR replicas to crafting! Each cache would give material for it, same like dungeon replicas. If you force a weapon perk the other 2 perks would be pvp related like resilient, freedom, etc.
