View Full Version : Crafting in Holding Pattern?

04-22-2011, 03:42 PM

I have a TR coming up through the vale now and I was planning on making a LitII for them this time around. However, given the coming update, should I hold off on crafting anything?

You will be unable to craft anything with the same raw power potential that a LitII has with the new crafting system.

You can continue creating greensteel as normal.

It depends on what you plan on crafting.

If it is a bow then I would definitely suggest waiting, but not due to the crafting system. There is a REAL nice bow coming out in the new adventure pack.

However, if it is a melee weapon then a Lit 2 will out dps just about anything you can craft.

As far as I can tell from my plays on Lamania the crafting is designed as a kind of middle ground between random drops/crappy names items and greensteel weapons (with the odd epic weapon coming above even greensteel).

Crafting won't impact greensteel IMO.

Also.. the crafting thing is "beta" which means they will be changing and fiddling with it... for a while yet.

Personally I never actually plan anything with very specific loot in mind, I just use whatever I can snag that works best for my character until the next shiny comes out. Keeps me happy.

Lit 2 should still be a safe choice for GS. Min 2 is the main one I would think twice about crafting right now.

Oh and triple pos weapons are MUCH better against undead with the changes to Greater Disruption.
