reported thread. Good luck.
know that i attacked the topic not anyone else.
you guys werte bullying me for no reason what so ever. I had a different opinion then you and was bullied for it over 100 times.
What exactly did i personally do to you guys?
suggestion if everyone here as smart as yall are trying to be, you wouldn't make petty attacks to my typing, or opinion.
i still think it is wrong to be charge a fee for no reason.
you guys are doing that and when i do play i'll make sure to do my part to not have that fee around.
i do plan ov lvling everything. I will not charge a fee if ppl give me mats As it is not needed. I wouldn't be using any money so i would have nothing to loose by not charging an extra fee on top of ppl buying/farming mats
Also docters and most jobs are paid x amount of money per hour/ per day/ per week.
crafting isn't a job no one is paying you to level your class.
and if you don;t spend money on repairing someones item Why charge them for it? and convience being the reason is flawed
Actually not everyone's verbally (if you want to call it that.) assaulting you. I've seen some pretty good valid explanations here about how your logic is flawed to them. By the way, calling your logic "flawed" isn't attacking you either. And actually if I recall, Pikko's comment was mainly about those who love or hate FFXIV bashing the opposite side and Karma-bombing them to **** and back. Say you don't like FFXIV for x reason, I suddenly start bashing you for it because of Y reason and suddenly you've got a player attacking a player incident. All most have tried to point out here is the reasoning behind paying a crafter to repair your stuff. If you don't want to by all means you're free not to...
But they put they "offer" in there for a reason, so you can. Like I said by all means you're free to refuse to pay for it and supply the materials yourself. Some might accept this and then you're set. However your odds of finding someone to do so are pretty slim, especially with the type of stuff you've been posting here. Ever hear of the term 'You can catch more flies with honey than with vinegar'? It means if you persuade someone to repair it for you (IE offer something for their time, it's just common courtesy.) with a reward you'll get a more favorable option than just expecting them to repair it. And like it or not, FFXIV may be a game but we all put our time into playing be it melee, magic, tank, or even a crafter. I'm not going to get into some long-winded debate trying to explain it, it's already been done several times already.
Maybe you just don't want to accept it or strongly believe your way is right, if so good for you. Just don't expect a favorable response if
you flat out demand someone to do it for free because you supply the items. You're more than welcomed to take your business elsewhere just as they're more than welcomed to refuse you service.
And by the way, here's an example of that term above... I wanted a Lapis Lazuli earring, now people don't normally sell these because they don't sell. First time I found someone to do it they kept failing. Well, they couldn't so you know what they did? They gave me the materials to bring to a higher level crafter, free of charge. The deal was I just supply the shards if they succeed. So you know what I did? I gave the crafter some shards for his time and thanked him. I eventually found someone else who could make it for me and they failed the first attempt, then used their own materials and succeeded the second. All they wanted was a single crystal for the synth. Again what did I do? I paid them the crystal AND threw in several more just for their time. The end result now is I've got a few crafter buddies who would willingly repair my stuff for free, no mats required and I don't have to pay a single gil. Will I still pay? Of course! But the point is, show them gratitude it'll get you farther than you'll ever imagine with what you want. And by the way, YES I do give out free materials sometimes to friends and people if I do need'em. I NPC alot of my excess junk but if someone else can use it I pass it onto them.
