View Full Version : Regular Crafting System

You have mentioned in the past that this was something being worked on, but that same line has been given for allot of DDOs problems. (known issues thread and its unchanging charm is a great example).

If you simply INSIST on not coding greensteel handwraps and recoding unarmed in general, then I IMPLORE you to push a regular crafting system out with the NEXT Update. Please note I said NEXT update, not some 1 year away update!

This will finally allow monks to craft their own handwraps, (albeit inferior to greensteel) and avoid the need for INSANE prices on rare (but very usefull) random drop handwraps in DDO. This thread is a fine example of what you have reduced monks to=

Unlike shroud or epic items, monks can not simply "farm" a great pair of handwraps like the ones above. Your chances of aquiring them are as good as winning your states lottery, and it is unkown if ANY monk on ANY server has these handwraps! These are just 1 example of several highly desired handwraps in DDO today, with monks having no actual way to aquire them other then= sheer, dumb, stupid, obnoxious, luck!

Please FINALLY add a system for crafting regular items for monks, or go ahead and add greensteel handwraps. Do 1 or the other, you OWE it to the few diehards that have played this underdog of a class from release.

This still needs to be done.

They've said many times before that due to the way the handwraps are coded into the monk system that establishing greensteel handwraps is virtually impossible without severe bugs that can and cannot be helped.

Your best bet is to do the substitution in which they have implemented for cases like this. Obtain some decent <elemental> or <elemental burst> wraps of weighted 5%. Do the icy burst crafting on them while it is still available. Do either the force or force crit ritual on them. Then you can get 1 or 2 ToD rings and put burst effects on them. That there will give you a huge list of numbers helping your dps.
