I don't, but I'm sure there are more out there. I have HQed all of one item in FFXIV. While exciting, I think I like shooting nogoodniks in the face more.

I dont have a ton of exp HQing finished items but I have been making HQ mats like buffalo leather straps+2/3, lanalin+2/3, various nuggets +2/3. Seeing that +3 is an awsome feeling. Best I have done with finished items is a few +2 thousand needles and some +1 stuff. Still waiting to make my first +3 finished item.

Update- I made 2 x Vintage hauby +1 and a +2 vintage hauby this morning : )

yeah I like making my own HQ gear more than almost anything in this game. I like fishing too. Maybe I am just a *********.

But it paid off in gold undies

When it comes to sitting around not doing anything for long periods of time, only being active for short windows, and marginal changes and sidegrades I'd say FFXI players were the perfect choice for politicians.

are you kidding me? there are so many people on the official forums who talk about how the majority of the players are crafters/gatherers.
so no, in fact i think you are the majority.
it seems the only thing the majority of the players want to do is either craft or try out an old school party camp, two things i personally do not do.

Seeing that HQ motion is about the only thing that brings a smile to my face in game.
Not crafting so much anymore, since I can't see the orb for weaving and can't stand the sound of leather, but it's always nice seeing these now at a lower level, compared to XI with it's tier system.

About the only reason I keep fraps up now, and probably half of my ss's are just HQ's of whatever.

Fighting most mobs is pretty boring for me, but I also never got to that high of a level in any class. So it's Marmots and Imps all the time. Need more Ogres and Basilisks and Ahriman and Boars and crap. Yet to kill an NM either, but that whole system seems kind of flawed to me anyways, so I'm not interested.
Crafting and gathering are more fun for me, even if I never make/obtain anything useful.
Also, crafting armor just looks plain better than almost anything DoW/DoM normally wear.

That whole sentence just sounds really weird to me. People somewhere else talk about how a majority of players are blah, but that doesn't really mean a majority of players(Or themselves) are blah.

yeah i worded it a bit weird. what i meant was they themselves are the crafters and they talk about how they are the majority. one example is about how they are being marginalized even though they make up the majority of the games population.
i got in another argument from another few crafters there who totally went nuts on me because i said the games future shouldnt be so craft/field reliant. i talked about what would appeal to a wider audience in the future and all anyone would argue to me was the fact that the games population is mostly crafter/fielder and that it should stay that way.

also, i dont get the whole blah thing, not sure if that was auto correct from your phone or otherwise intentional.

I really love HQing my own stuff. I never grinded crafts to earn money, I grinded them to make my own stuff and don't need to rely on other people HQing stuff for me too much.

I made a few +3 things so far, mostly tools, and a bunch of +2s, especially on unique items or NM drops(Tricorne, Mossy Scale Mail etc).

But nontheless I enjoy actual battle and fighting in groups even more than HQing my own stuff. I HQ my stuff to actually use it in battle, not to just have it lieing around^^

That was just me being to lazy to type DoH/DoL more then once. Thanks for the clarification on your post though, makes more sense to me now, and I do agree with you actually.
