Am I Missing Something? (Aetheryte Camps)Follow

I have been doing the Region Leves and running around, but every time I come to a Camp there is usually twenty plus people just standing there, I do some more running around, log off for a while, come back and they are still just standing there hours later. The lag around these Camps are so bad at times that the graphics start to get jittery and freeze up. Plus there are anywhere from twenty to thirty more people Synthesizing around the Camps that the text is so spammed that I always have to scroll back to see what the NPCs have said. What am I missing here? Is there something special about these Camps? I head off to find a place alone to Synthesize so the graphics are faster and 9 out 10 times I have succeeded, I see people fail again and again in the Camps.

I've noticed the people at the camps usually just spam rapid over and over. It seems that they stay at the camps so that others will see their goods. They also like to browse after crafting. Over-all I'd say they do it because they either have leves there or they took 8 leves, got all the mats, and they're using the facilities to complete.


I really can't say why people would be there for sure. I personally go to the corresponding guild when crafting unless it is an easy recipe for me.

I recall SE mentioning a few times that they expected the aetheryte camps to become social hubs rather than the cities.

People craft at camps because you can get craftng assistance there, and since the buff is timed, it's a waste of time to run somewhere else

And since you can gauge (within reason) what rank customers you will have at each camp and then craft accordingly to maximise sales... provided you advertise by actively crafting.

Actually the reason MOST craft there, is because theyre are crafting leves at the crystals. Anyone that is doing 'crafting grinding' will be going to the guild for support / extremely minimized lag.
