The Daily Grind: Are you a half-hearted MMO crafter?


Whenever we talk about crafting, I feel that we’re too quick to divide all players into “crafters” and “non-crafters” without considering that there might be a third category. Call them the “half-hearted crafters,” the ones who dabble with the best of intentions but don’t usually go the distance because of the effort and difficulty involved.

I will admit that I’m a half-hearted crafter in many of my games. I’ve fully leveled up only a handful of professions over the years — engineering in World of Warcraft, architecture in WildStar, scholar in LOTRO — but usually I get frustrated at the time sink and lack of immediate payoff before getting that far in most crafting fields.

Who’s with me? Who’s a half-hearted crafter — and what’s your MMO crafting journey been like?

Every morning, the Massively Overpowered writers team up with mascot Mo to ask MMORPG players pointed questions about the massively multiplayer online roleplaying genre. Grab a mug of your preferred beverage and take a stab at answering the question posed in today’s Daily Grind!
