So I do find the crafting menu convenient. But I am also wondering if there might be merit to limiting crafting to crafting forges (such as those found at the End of Time).
My thinking is that stations like this, and others, such as the Bazaars, really is where you see fellow adventurers “idling” in town, which would give opportunities for other players to notice you and interact.
I also think restricting crafting to towns isnt that big a problem since it would probably be quite rare for players to be doing any serious crafting in the field. What do people think?
PS: a few posters have mentioned this. And I agree. I generally don’t consider shattering items as “crafting” and absolutely agree that being able to shatter equipments in the field is a “necessary” quality of life.
