    Hungry reacted to Ussiah in TEST Feedback (5.110 Phase 1) for 3/26/2020   
    Crafting may need a little updating @thomasblair
     
    This is the FIRST time, since I have been main crafting in this game for 3 years+, we have had a FULL wipe with wartribe gear out and it points to some serious issues for crafting.
    Early crafting feels like it is not impactful or useful.
    PROS of Current System
    I am happy with the power level of wartribe gear because I realize it needs to be relatively strong for players joining in later in the game. I am also actually VERY happy my guildmates aren't all piling on me to make them gear early on. CONS of Current System
    Even if I did want to make white or green harvesting/crafting gear, I will fail terribly for a month. Both on assembly and experimentation even if I choose right race, max right stats, and get all the disciplines I can. No runemaking thralls (at least in GR) and no runemaking races making the ONE thing we can't get from wartribes very difficult to make early. Helper Monkey and Risk Management got nerfed, also making it more difficult to craft. Suggestions
    VASTLY lowering the difficulty of making and experimenting on white and green crafts. (Blue wartribe will be better than both of these, so why make it hard on us?) Add other minor disciplines specifically geared for helping crafting just starting out. Front load the crafting bonuses more. (Possibly make general crafting have a 1 for 1 effect and lower the nodes of the advanced trees)  
     
    ARTIFACT Feedback
    There are multiple versions of every color of artifact bind, I believe 6. Meaning there is at least 18 pieces for each wartribe.(Only saw up to blue, maybe higher and more item bloat). There is absolutely no difference or distinction or seeming reason for having different versions. Artifact binds of the same color/type do not stack. Suggestions for Artifacts
    Each wartribe should only have ONE version per color. Each bind of the same color and type should stack. This is to not only clear up inventory space but also take pressure off the server. Why should the server need to track all these extra items that have no distinction or effect?

    Hungry reacted to Deioth in New World, Old Problems   
    Damage/Mitigation is capped.  Hard.  I'd show you some examples if I still had them.  It is one of the reasons why it isn't worth making anything except blue and better and why you only craft when maxed out due to how experimentation points work.  Hopefully the 5.110 test server lets us experiment with the new passive trees enough that we can actually test crafting's changes properly and I'll be able to make a proper balance suggestion post.

    Hungry reacted to Xarrayne in What is the Archdruid "Rotation"   
    Simply put, If I'm low on Essence I'm trying to set up a bomb, and if I'm high on Essence I'm trying to find someone to dump it into, either by Sparking (LMB) or by throwing out CC and debuffs. There's no real "rotation" per se, you just have to get a feel for the pacing of CF fights and what kind of things need to be done and when. I don't know what Race/Discs you chose so I can't speak for how those will fit into your "rotation", but in general you wanna use Bark Skin on CD, Root*/Call Storm people who are either causing your team trouble or trying to escape from damage, and use Faerie Fire/Flames to soften up something that the group wants to put damage into. You can use Death Tray ult to contribute to AoE damage in a scrum (though it's risky) and if there's no bomb chances you can use Blight for the Electric armor debuff to boost your LMB attacks. You can dive/harass the enemy back line pretty far and skedaddle out by using Shroud** to stun people who turn on you, and Pack Avatar is also a great contribution if you use it when your group's making a big push to help ensure that something goes down.
    *Hold onto your Root if you have a bomb ready to go, because that's your best shot at holding someone down for the explosion.
    **Just press the button once and ignore the 2nd part of the combo.
    At the end of the day Archdruid is very much a "jack of all trades, master of [one]"... It's a versatile and relatively self-sufficient class, but the bombs are gonna be most of your appreciable contribution; in fact they're so powerful that it would be unfair for Archdruid to be particularly good at anything else. It can be a huge (and hilarious) contribution that instantly turns fights in your favour, don't get me wrong, but you spend a lot of time setting up with no pay-off, watching your team die and being too deficient in healing to save them or running around tickling enemies with LMB, and I wholeheartedly agree that it feels bad/useless in a lot of situations. With the right stat balance (60/40 Spirit/Int) and high-end gear you can maybe think about off-healing, which I am all about because that's something that's always useful, but the main job of an Archdruid is to be a Catch-22-style pain in the ass. If the enemy leaves you alone you are free to bomb them; if the enemy chases/pokes you then you soak that damage and lead them on a wild goose chase, freeing up pressure on the rest of your team.

    re: wiping during the current build
    If you are going to do a wipe in the interim before 5.110, I would suggest doing a months-long Trial to go with it. Give people some lead time to prepare for it. Clean slate wipe with a long duration Trial might be interesting enough to entice some people to play while we wait for the next big release.
    And if you wipe skills, I think you have to wipe vessels and items. It would almost entirely defeat the purpose of leveling the playing field if vets keep their epic vessels and legendary gear.

    Hungry got a reaction from Ahurazor in Crafting help required   
    Discipline talent trees are not yet implemented.  Currently you are granted all of the stats and powers of disciplines you equip.  Besides discipline slots, there are no talents from any class that buff crafting or harvesting.

    At the top of the lobby screen (when you see all your characters on the left-hand side) you will see at the top is "SKILLS".  Click this button.  You will see there is a Primary Track and a Secondary Track.  Pick one of the three major tracks (Combat, Crafting, Harvesting) then select TRAIN on one of the minor trees (Combat Basics, Exploration Basics, Crafting Basics) to begin acquiring skill points in that tree.  The passive tree is account-wide, so it affects all of your characters regardless of what you have done to them.

    1. Besides passive training, acquiring better items is the best way to increase your crafting and harvesting ability.  Armor can provided harvesting and crafting stats if a Specialty Seal (from Runemaking) is applied to them.  Jewelry can also provide harvesting and crafting stats if you use the right materials.  There are also several cooking recipes that grant temporary buffs to harvesting and crafting.
     
    2.  Your passive skill tree generates 3 points every 10 seconds to whichever tree you are currently training, even when you are offline.  You spend these points on two tracks at a time (Combat, Crafting, Exploration -- which is a fun word for Harvesting right now) but the caveat is you cannot train the same major track twice at the same time (so you can train Blacksmithing and Mining but not Mining and Logging).
     
    3.  For the most part all recipes are unlocked for you, but you will have to be at a specific crafting bench in order to see those recipes.  For example, you cannot create plate armor without being at a Blacksmith bench.  The quality of materials you put into the recipe determines its power, so the recipe you use to make the best plate in the game is the same as the recipe you use to make a newbie set of plate.  There are a few items in the game you can find that open up new recipes (I hear Runic weapons are pretty cool) but I will leave those to you to discover how to reveal.
     
    4.  When you go to the campaign the concentration of high ranking resources is significantly increased.  Most of the nodes in the campaign world are currently Rank 8 to Rank 10.  Note that higher ranking nodes don't give you more materials, but rather their drop tables are more concentrated on higher quality items.  A Rank 10 Common iron and a Rank 1 Common iron are the same, but the Rank 10 is more likely to drop Rare, Epic, and Legendary iron.

    Hungry got a reaction from Angelmar in The New Guild Experience - The Passive and Crafting Problem   
    I think many people who currently play this game vastly underestimate how much Crowfall is a knowledge based game, and how harshly punished you are for lacking that knowledge.  The less knowledge your individual players are armed with, the larger of a burden on your leadership to guide them effectively (while also playing their own characters properly).
     
    Being able to trust the line members of W and HoA to know what they should be doing with themselves and having the leadership have the knowledge to always make the right call is the reason they seem invincible.  Close that gap and you can kill them in wartribe gear.
  18. Thanks
    Hungry reacted to Angelmar in The New Guild Experience - The Passive and Crafting Problem   
    Deioth,
    Think on this statement from your reply.  A few additional facts to consider:
    Guilds like HAX, Cursed, UXA, corvus citadel and especially Clams  (our former faction mates) wear the same gear Winterblades and HoA use.  (Everyone except HAX has been here since December and 5.8, and HAX has been here about 3 months)
    Cursed/Clams/Corvus/UXA have the same training as Winterblades and HoA. (Again since 5.8 skill wipe)
    If you're "actually doing something" against HAX and Clams you're competing against people with same gear/training as WHoA.
    The difference between WHoA and the other guilds is leadership, coordination, knowledge, and experience.

    Hungry reacted to KatzeWeiss in The New Guild Experience - The Passive and Crafting Problem   
    I agree with this 100%, when the crafting system was recently tweaked so that common quality was more difficult to experiment on and legendary easier it skewed the lower tier materials into worthlessness. Add onto that change that a new crafter or harvester is going to have little to no training and the end product of your labor is going to feel like a lot of wasted time. I reported this in the feedback thread before it even hit the live server but since most of the people involved in the conversation had their training maxed already it barely even got a second glance.
     
    There are three main issues working together to make this situation bad:
    1. While I do appreciate the addition of item drops such as armor and weapons for lessening the stress of crafting, it also completely negates the value of anything crafted at lesser quality levels or training. Common quality crafted gear should be at least as good as the vast majority of item drops.
    2. The experimentation difficulty on the lower tiers ends up giving less than competitive results. The quoted "30% difference between lowest and highest tier crafted gear" was made using a fully trained and probably geared crafter. Anyone less than fully kitted out for their chosen crafting specialization is going to have depressing results trying to work with low tier mats. And if new crafters can't use the piles of common and uncommon materials then who is that mass of resources intended for?
    3. The passive training system is a huge turn off for anyone that wants to primarily be craft or harvest focused. For a guild like Eldritch that doesn't even have any members max passive trained the two problems above contribute to crafting results that are enough to make people give up the game. This isn't posturing from someone threatening to take their ball and leave this is something that actually happened, and it isn't the first time.
     
    I think the best solution is to either rework or remove the passive training requirements from craft focused play, there is already a huge grind getting the crafting vessels and gear online without the need to time gate a new guilds ability to even participate.

    That's the interesting thing about Crowfall. Not EVERY player has to grind 40+ hours a week to be viable. If everyone chips in resources here and there, the entire guild can be geared out with little effort. In a weekend of solid harvesting 5-10 hardworking people can gear out 20. The other things you mention don't take hours of grinding but are still difficult to accomplish. Imagine if you could convince guild or faction-mates to switch characters or builds with one conversation instead of weeks of back and forth bickering. The social and organizational elements of this game are what set it apart. The people who just want to jump in and "get fights" or do small-scale ganking aren't fully engaging with the game's design.
