sorry i never know about the premium stuff.
Anyway, I have enough real life issue then going to mimic my whole real life into the game.
If they going to mimic my real life into the game, at least do it with a decent job. No it isn't even decent at that. why? every process of crafting is the same, beside different materials, you basically choose from the 4.
Make it interactive like more Wii games then, but i am sure you would throw your mouse at your keyboard after the 100th time you complete the same mini-game.
It is a chore, when you are just grinding away, clicking the same button when you didn't even need it. SE's job is to keep you the players inside the game while they already earning your monthly fee (well not now). But it feel like a jail when you have to work like a factory worker every day.
I am not saying we should have it all easy like WoW, i rather they give people shortcut on the easy stuff and make harder stuff harder.
My suggestion is give player a choice in configuration. You want to improve it, fine, go turn on manual mode. I want to just grind my skill then i want it random and fast.
I couldn't bare the fact it take 10 click + delay of say 3-6 sec. It takes a minute per craft without clicking the "request" or "clicking your materials"
Instead of making a half-*** crafting system, make it interactive with a shirt and actual needles and you stitch every points for those who argue with me. Let's see how they enjoy "getting closer to reality"
You can remove a crafting system, when monster will drop your armors and money. NPC sell items you need. Who need crafting anymore? It isn't like they give us a choose of dying specific color we like to our cloth instead of the choose 3 pattern color you can make. Seriously, i lived through FFXI 8 years without crafting, i am fine with it. I will use my AF.

Ok, if you looking for flames, you got flames....
Talk about what you know, dont start dishing something you obviously know nothing about.
1) As it is the further you go into a craft the harder it gets to succeed in a synth a few ranks above your so the higher you get the harder things become.
2) Extra douche points for bringing WoW, not every MOO has or needs to be compared to WoW.
3) the whole make it easier, they have done it, it's called Hasty Hands, go look it up and be satisfied.
