View Full Version : Alternatives Craft Stores

We all now that, for WS, farmers have destroyed this class. Why? Coz they have all recipes and can do cheapest craft stores staying 24/7.
Before craft stores, we had to give mats to the WS, and hope he won't scam us. If they wasn't craft stores, with 60% rec, there could be more scam, but less WS farmers.
Why not to do a 15 sec or 30 seconds craft stores? i mean, if the craft stores can just stay 15 seconds long, just the time needed to click on button to craft an item, they couldn't be scam possible, and no craft stores staying 24/7.
I dunno if 3rd program can emulate a craf store every 15s or 30s, but if it can, it could be easy for a GM to see this one : bye bye cheaters.

Craft stores are a major source of income for people with high level WS. I dont think it would be fair to people who had to work their [censored] off to get a WS to that level to make some cash and then have their afk craft shops removed.

Easiest would be just to remove them and send craft success message to the party on 60% crafts - that way crafting mats or similar things won't spam the party, but you can join party with your trusted WS to assure he really succeeded or failed.
Of course all who are afraid to get scammed will have to buy the full item. ^_~

Yeah this is a bad idea all around. Granted the competition is high due to farmer run craft shops, but do I really want to go back to the days when I handed over my crap only to never get it back again? Hell no. Hell double hell no.
Personally I think the best craft shop button Ncsoft could ever add is a cyrstalize button, that way I don't have to track down a trustworthy ally/clan dwarf to crystalize anything I need. This isn't even a huge issue for anyone anymore, unless you lucked out of being in an ally with a decent WS.
But come on, seriously, what a bad idea. If you don't like the farmer WS's fine, level up so you can do the needed high level items or better yet go for the random and hard to find stuff that needs crafting.

While I make a good chunk of change on my craft shop when I leave it up overnight, I would prefer there wasn't Private Craft Shops.
I realize that this can never happen unfortunately, as even if they took them out now, WS have lost the economic advantage they used to have. I also understand there are many cheaters and scoundrels amongst us, but not all of us are this way. Some of us have built our reputations on being honorable and trustworthy.
I also don't agree with 15 or 30 second craft shops, as that would just be annoying, especially for clannies or allies who want to craft shots off of me.

the selling of shots in the clan wh would be good idea to help clannies out with cheap shots and the end of craft shops i would like to see as im sick of the bots/farmers and their 24/7 1 adena craft shopsand im not a low lvl WS im lvl 66 so i can craft pretty much anything but only if i wanna do it for 1 adena >< id like to make some money on the craft shops but it just isnt gonna happen if you destroyed the ability of craft shops and implemented a way to notify peeps about crafts then the true WS like me would be able to take control of the market for crafts in time but if you want my real opinion atm dont make a WS no point at all we have been nerfed so badly that we cant compete against nukers archers and even healers can beat us now due to erase and root sogo create a DD class faster killing faster lvling and if you want a cheap craft find a farmer craft shop for 1 adena :(
A GOOD WAR SMITH IS AN HONOURABLE ONE :)
