has there been any info from the LOTRO team on crafting in the next releases?
Maybe its just me but.. (Ignoring Legendary Items ... )
Jeweler. Doesn't seem like much demand at level 100. Fangorn stuff requires to much grind to make it useful for making for someone else. The scaling stuff is readibly available on the market. Anything I can make seem just not worth it.
Tailor. pretty much in the same boat as my Jeweler. EXCEPT, the slotted stuff is really the high end.
Scholar. YEAH... I still have some value ... but the stuff I can make is devalued for level 100 characters since they have more of everything.
Metalsmith. Same as tailor.
Weaponsmith. The drops on the market are in such quantities and so much better than anything I can make .. forget it.
Cook. Same issue as scholar....
Woodworker. Same issue as Weaponsmith...
In summary, except for food, scrolls, potions and legendary stuff Crafters have no business once anyone gets to about 85. The quest stuff that you get just leveling to 100 is better than anything we can make.
We have been made irrelevant.
Was this by design, by accident, or are they planning to give us a reason for existence?
I know this sounds like a rant LOL!!! But I'm half hoping for some good news!! [Activate Hope +12]
BTW I have maxed jeweler, metalsmith, scholar and tailor ... I was/am working on my woodworker, cook and weaponsmith.
