Summoning bells and CraftingFollow

I tried to post this on the official forums, but my login won't work for some reason (yes, I'm sure it's correct). Posting here in hopes that someone from SE reads it.

Please, for the love of baby chocobos, either add more Summoning Bells outside inn rooms or allow people to craft in their inn rooms. I get horrible lag in the market areas due to the sheer volume of people, particularly around the Summoning Bell. At first, I was just annoyed with crafters who did their synthesis at the market area Summoning Bells, but after starting a second craft, I am beginning to understand why they do it. In a sense, I suppose the market area congestion is an extension of the issues SE has had with the servers.

There's really no good reason not to allow crafting at inn rooms. Oh, I understand the whole storyline of having peace and quiet, but idk... add some soundproofing or something.

Wait until they start renovating all the inns for the asbestos.

I do botany and weaver and I usually craft in the nearest sanctuary after gathering a stack of materials.

I have done that, too, but sometimes it is helpful to be able to shift inventory to or from your retainer and/or get crafted items up on the market. With no summoning bells at the outdoor sanctuaries, you can't do that. Hence the need for inn room crafting or more summoning bells.

Aye, I would love for crafting to be available in the inn rooms. Maybe they will allow that to be available in player housing.

To add to that, assuming it does eventually become possible to craft indoors, I think it would be nice to be able to send your retainers to purchase items from the market and bring them back to you. They would probably need to add a waiting period for the delivery to be completed (maybe 5 minutes?), that way you can't just sit in your room power-leveling your crafts via the instant delivery of mats. Maybe even add a delivery charge for the convenience.

I think that could help free up the markets a bit and avoid having the massive groups crafting right around the bell/NPCs.

You make a good point about player housing. I'd forgotten all about that since it's not available yet. You would think it would be since it's supposed to be *your* house, after all. Nothing like those noisy neighbors doing carpentry at 2AM!
