Crafting. Yes crafting. The all elusive, god forbid, sucks to level, identical item, farm your ass off, kill a ni-hao slinging bot for a node, shoot your best friend in the face for a plot on dantooine… crafting. I will admit it. I was a crafter. Yes. the man you look at today, whom rated a whopping 4 in the wow arena system, the lord of murder, Flagg, the god of pvp carnage and utter destruction was a crafter. All jokes aside, In SWG. I loved that shit. LOVED it. Lived for it. Hell, I’ll admit it. I sold gold (credits) to websites, that resold my gold. I sold so much of it, i lived on it for 2 years….. no joke. 2200.00 a month. It was heaven. Then it all changed… wait…what the fuck am i babbling on about now…. Oh the glory days. Back to it then… Crafting.
I really want to get back to it. I want an inquisitor for leveling (my full video on ustream thingy) but for gods sake, I want to grind and level a jedi knight crafter. A “Force Architect”(@flagg20011-2099). if you will. The crystal making , lightsaber wielding mofo. The man with the plan. Or whatever.
The thing is, after reading a few 1/2 assed reviews on the crafting, then reading one post beta guy.. Shit, I cant wait. He ranted and raved about it, being a crafter from swg himself. Good god that’s tough optimism to try to break. He went on about how engaging it was, how wonderful it was to craft sex droids, how exciting it was to kill jawas and use their soul to fuel his deadly machine based one demons from….oh wait, wrong game. The point is he loved it. And I’ll be honest here. I know a lot of people who talk out of school and said the same. The crafting system is fun as hell, unique, and phenomenal.
You know how hard it is to find a game with good engaging crafting? How utterly mindbogglingly hard? Impossible is the proper term. It’s so bad it almost seems as if these days most companies throw it in as some sore-ass abused after-though of some overworked department full of burnouts. Not so here, I hope. How do you guys feel? This week is my monthly questionnaire, first (and most likely only month) to do this before Derek and Serge shut me down like cancer in a radiation lab.
