@Jamesmor I have some stuff in storage, from badges to some weapons and other things. Maybe I'll be able to craft something when the ability is unlocked. But I think my gaming stamina drains faster nowadays. Couple that with my current social ineptitude (which makes me fizzle out of shyness in game, as odd as that sounds) and my recent utter laziness (which I don't deny) and that's why I've been unable to stay for long in online games. Add to that, this game is region locked to me on Steam, a platform I was eagerly waiting to get it working for.
As for any gap, I mentioned it but I'm not against it. People should get what they can earn. And in games like this, power to do stuff faster is part of that reward. So I'm all for games rising the power ceiling every now and then. But I know that I'll not be at that ceiling unless I get my me problem fixed. Or at least that part that can still be fixed. Since I like to be useful in a party, I'm trying to jump start that drive to contribute more. Ult quest makes a good practice because I can go in and out as I please, and revive and buff people. I totally hate being carried, so I don't do stuff unless I know I can contribute.
So if crafting helps me to contribute more, that means I'll be on for a bit longer, and perhaps get lucky and power up in the process as well.
