Dude. I’m a jewelcrafter. and a casual raider.
It is ZERO EFFORT IN COMPARISON.
you fly around. you farm ore. you make rings. You fly around you collect leather, cloth or whatever and build a gear. That’s not rocket science. It takes around 10~20k gold to max out a profession. And once there, making those things is a cakewalk. So please refrain from considering crafting in such high regards. It’s not. It’s mediocre at best. There used to be a time when you actually had to put effort into it. Nowadays, you don’t.
As for gear being available, You don’t seem to understand the importance of ilvl.
The system has already been bloated with over the top gear drops from mythic+ dungeons, benthic gears being better than the most difficult content drops in raids and world quests and all the other sources of drop. The last thing it needs, is another freebie source of gear that surpasses mythic raiding gear.
There used to be a time when things were different. Now it is what it is. You can’t just put socketed 445 rings and pants and chests or whatever into the mix, with professions without setting up boundaries in their crafting.
What difference does it make if you could make a 440 socketed piece? you’ll sell it in AH, then anyone who spends tokens on items, gets to have the best gears in the game, while those who put time, effort and a lot of experience into what they did, May or may not get a drop which is less powerful, by doing mythic raiding. That’s a pay to win mechanic in an MMORPG. It’s ridiculous and unacceptable. As if boosting wasn’t enough, adding this is just an end to any fairplay this game has left.
Here’s what a healthy MMORPG does.
It provides multiple sources of gear gathering. It gives the best gears to the highest difficulty content. And least useful gears to the lowest difficulty content.
Profession gears without the current restriction doesn’t need much effort. This current system makes it balanced, to not allow anyone with 10k gold in their pockets to craft gear and disrupt the balance of the economy and gear.
Again, you’re failing to understand something very important that i keep repeating and you keep ignoring.
PLEASE READ THIS PART CAREFULLY AND STOP REPEATING THE SAME THING
Gear crafting should be restricted the way it is right now. If you have other valid complaints about professions, feel free to say so. This one IS NOT one of them.
And as for pvp players being forced to pve, What does that have to do with professions? that’s on no pvp vendors being added in BFA. based on the same logic, why are pvp players forced to use professions to gain the gears they want? why can’t they just do pvp and get it? See? It can be used both ways.
PS: caps are not shouting. They’re highlights. Because i’m pretty sure you skip 80% of my words.
