I wish to express my disappointment in the Tier 8 crafting tools. 30 levels after the previous available crafting tool, we need too many Tarnished Crests for Metalsmith Journals, crafting the actual Crafting Tool only to arrive at a product (twice!) that is only 1 % better in Scholar and Weaponsmith crit chance and the same time for Farming. The crit for Crafting Tools is not balanced, imo, to the actual reward.
It used to be a couple of Mithril Flakes, now it's low chance Crests and more Crests for Journals for making the Tool...the odds are not fair now that the resources are more difficult than before.
Anybody else making Tier 8 Tools and feeling ripped off?
