So, I have been working on crafting. I am trying to figure out how to do it efficiently without massive meseta bleed. In order to make a weapon at +190 stat, it will take around 70-90million to do (sometimes more if luck is not with the craft). I am trying to figure out ways to chop this cost down. This can be done on 6 slot. A +200-205 can be achieved on a 7 slot, but getting to 7 slot and 8 slot is a really stupid endeavor sometimes. I dare not even comprehend higher than 8 slots (if it's even possible currently, and if so, it is so hard to get to that it would be extremely unlikely to remain there long with the nature of worthwhile crafting % chances and lack of preservers higher than 4 max). The issue with +200 plus stat is that losing a 7+ slot item is so devastating due to getting back to it.
Is there anything that anyone knows? It makes me feel that crafting in this game is not worth while and is so highly out of touch that it is not really worth doing most times. This is generally noticeable through the lack of strong weapons in decent circulation. Most players do not and have not and will not see higher than +130 stat. I know the crafting bench is coming sometime soon, but I am not sure what it will do to help stabilize possibility. I never played JP because I never cared to go through that awful experience, it would have just ruined the game for me.
