I hate crafting. Â In reality, i dislike crafting in its current form in MMO’s. Â I suppose i have a certain old school view of what crafting should be and how far we’ve deviated from that. When crafting is easy and everyone can do it, then it becomes a pointless endeavor that’s simply a disguised money sink.
I’ve always felt crafting should be this difficult and long journey that only a select few dedicated players would ever actually reach max level in. Â Something that requires an entire guild funneling materials to a certain person to help them along and in turn be rewarded with badass items that were out of reach of mere mortals. That exclusivity is what’s missing. Â That goes for a lot of other aspects as well, not just crafting.
So i decided to suck it up and level my first profession ever in WoW and i of course chose engineering. Â It made the most sense from a DK perspective if only for the availability ofÂ Synapse Springs. Â While a minimal increase to DPS, it’s still an increase and that’s all i was looking for. Â Crafting some interesting mounts, including the chopper mount, factored into my decision as well of course. Â Then Blizzard decided to ruin my fun with the 6.0 Alpha patch notes!
I can’t complain i suppose. Â At the end of the day, i’ll have some cool mounts and new pets. Â What more could a DK as for? Â Army of the Dead back?!
