It’s last night, I’m home from work, Update 9 is live, updating is complete, excitement is building, at last! Time to log in!

So I can click a bunch of things for several hours.

Now this is not entirely the fault of the new (kind-a grind-y) crafting system. No one forced me to buy every single armor/jewelry/clothing/weapon with a prefix or suffix on the auction house with a buyout of 2k or less and deconstruct them. No one put a gun to my head and demanded that I chew through 300-plus items and then use them to create every possible shard.

Coin operates the machine
This deconstructor is a
Coin-operated vending machine

Well, yes they did, sort of, by rewarding me with crafting XP.

Now I have single-handedly ruined the vendor trash economy on Sarlona as well as putting a really severe strain on my poor abused clicky finger.

The end result? 19 Arcane, 15 Divine, and 14 Elemental levels. In other words, still not enough to make anything worthwhile.

Going to need to invest a WHOLE lot more money, or time, or both. Looks like there are no easy shortcuts for this. Which is the way it ought to be.

But my clicky finger may never forgive me.

  1. To click, or not to click… THAT appears to be the question…

    …for now, anyway. 😉

  2. Did some of that today. Manged to get 6 Arcane, 5 Divine and 9 Elemental, and that was just with trash. A quick Haverdasher run, then two stages of the new chain and I was loaded down with more stuff to deconstruct. I have shards and essences out the wazoo, even made a few random useless items. Amazing how just about every single drop in that new chain that is an armor or weapon has a Prefix AND a Suffix isn’t it? 🙂

  3. Heh, the prefix AND suffix weapons annoy me! I’d rather just have one to make it simpler (and usually worth more) to decide what to deconstruct *g*

    I ransacked Haverdasher on two characters last night, which was enough to raise one from 9 each to something like 13-14 each. It’s sad how happy I was every time a Greater Essence or two popped in a chest…

    New definition of trash: Any weapon that simply has an enhancement bonus! Perfect for raising the capital needed for this…

  4. Haha, I did the same thing, but I’ve come to a realization…
    Anything of use, including:
    paralyzing, force / force burst for monks, vorpal, +5 enhancement for weapons, AND stunning +10
    Are all either broken or missing. So… without any of those, there’s no reason for a monk to craft anything; especially as the only thing I wanted to craft were +5 force burst handwraps of stunning +10.

    All the crafting is good for, till the Devs fix the errors and get it out of beta, is trash.

What do you think?
