Dear Cryptic,
Season 5 is great, I love it. There is only one part of it I don't like, and think that you need to fix - Crafting.
Please take another look at crafting. Some of us, (at least me) are not all that wealthy, and don't have a lot of dilithium. You just made it so I can't craft. I can't craft anymore!!!! I don't have a lot of Energy Credits, or dilithium, so I am stuck! I have to complete "Aiding the Deferi" 15 times just to make ONE Dual heavy cannon. That is just unacceptable. It is going to take me forever to get a toon with good gear! Please, fix this!!!

P.S. The daily even, "Time to craft" is really dumb, since I can then only craft at those times!!! I am poor as it is!!!!
If you goal was to make it so that it takes longer to get good gear, you have done that, but people who are VA's, or LG do a lot of PvP as do it, and I would like to PvP with my toon, but I can't because it doesn't have good gear, because you made it to expensive!!!
Please, I am begging you here, fix this!!!! Thanks!!!!!! Any comment from a dev would be nice

Dear valued player,

You can always buy Cryptic points from the online store, then convert them into dilithium via the exchange.

Otherwise, enjoy the grind.

Sincerely,

I find it quite aggravating that after all the brewahaha about those rare particle traces, they're now only useable in crafting items for the lower half of each rank (Mk III, Mk V, Mk VII etc.) which are not as good as the upper-half items made with dilutium. I shouldn't have been surprised to find that out, but I honestly was, just a tad.

I can see why Cryptic doesn't want people to get purple gear to easily from crafting. However, I am surprised at how much is being asked for in dilithium for any other type of gear.

In order to help leveling crafting and providing a better gaming experience for actually grinding samples, I would suggest the following.

For all even mk green quality items, it should be the cost of the mats plus 30% of the normal dilithium cost. A blue item has its dilithium cost increased to 45%. And for a rare, its cost goes up to 60% of the total normal dilithium cost.

That way, it still costs dilithium to get the best gear, but leveling up crafting and getting some gear for lower levels is not such an ordeal.

o.o i did not know this, but then again I'm never going to craft again. Yet another way cryptic has screwed the player base. Just wow, I am not surprised by it at all. They will do whatever they can to wring money out of you, no matter what.

# 6 Crafting Boycott
12-11-2011, 06:26 PM
At this point I would like to ask for a crafting boycott from all the players. Please don't craft anything from Mem Alpha unless you really need something. The fact is I can't call for a full boycott of crafting due to the fact that they moved most cannons needed for escorts to Mem Alpha.

So for the time being please join me in a show non use of the crafting system. The only way were going to get crafting changed is if we come together as a community and show Cryptic, and the Perfect World we won't be pushed around by a forced change to what was a great crafting system. The current prices are just insane right now.

Common 100 refined Dilith
Uncommon 1000 Refined Dilith

So I mean Right now your looking at $20,000 just for 20 uncommon. The most dilith you can get from any mission is $1440 so thats 13 missions just to get 20 uncommon. If your looking to craft rare sets it can cost more than the most expensive ships on the market.

So I hate to say it but let crafting die off please. Its the only way your going to see positive change is if you let those items rot on the shelf.

What good is it to craft a rare shield if you can't buy the ship that it would work well with.


Thanks

^ Pretty much this. Common isnt so bad but good god when I looked at the price of Uncommons... 1k dilithium for 1 Uncommon material?

Forget it.
