View Full Version : A casual player's idea to make a craft-char somewhat viable.

So after reading the crafting forums I have thought up a way to make crafting (hopefully) much less painful for a casual player.

1: In [this] thread http://forums.ddo.com/showthread.php?t=313491 the user Primalhowl has found a
(very useful imho) way to utilize items already ingame. to which I say; Kudos! Keep up the good work!

2, My contribution: My idea is to allow the Dust of Disjunction to turn named loot into non-named BtA items of the same type I.E. the Dueling Shlager becomes a BtA craftable rapier that keeps its original appearance.
This would go for any named loot that is not BtC like VotM from Delera's.

3: Make the shards BtA and if anybody has a valid & sensible reason why this part should not be done, im SURE the ENTIRE forum would LOVE to hear it.........

My projected result if these suggestions are implemented is that things like the aforementioned Dueling Shlager
or the Roguebane Breastplate will become more useful. and in addition as people find that the easiest way to acquire named BtA items themselves is playing through raids like the Chronoscope and ect. they will buy the associated adventure packs if they haven't already, thus gaining Turbine additional revenue.

In closing, I realize that this does not allow for trading these items, and that may anger some players.
to these people I say, the crafting was intended as a loot sink and by extention, a plat sink, so what did you expect?
