Just my question to turbine: Why making a new crafting system? Don´t we have already plenty systems, some of them meanwhile very outdated (canith, shroud, epic)?
Would it not be better / easier to unify the systems and to use the special crafting zones for crafting special or more powerful crystals only? This at least would make logical sense and would help to reduce the crafting complexity without reducing your potential to sell ingrediences. On countrary, it would help sell pots that facilitate (canith) crafting.
