So in MMOs I have usually ignored the whole gather & craft element, focusing instead on leveling and so on. Just found it too tedious gathering all those resources. How do you think AoC will be on this topic, compared to other MMOs? And do you enjoy this element in MMOs? Maybe it is time I start taking this seriously.. :)

I don't mind gathering or crafting, but my two biggest problems have always been that they're not action-oriented and/or wind up being rather useless (whether it's because better gear is easily found without crafting or because money itself is even more worthless, in which would be easily solvable if developers just made it so enemies never dropped gear in the first place).

Exactly. But Steven did say that the best gear will both boss drops and crafted gear. As long as the crafted gear that is very premium, being very hard to make.

You'll also have shipbuilding and so on, so I can't wait for more details on this :)

I love gathering and crafting. I usually do these in my cooldown/offtime to just relax and think less, but still progress through the game. One of the gathering classes I'm really looking forward too is fishing.

I wish I could do the same. I often don't have the patience for it. In most games I have played, it took such a massive time investment to get to the actual useful items, that I'd just ignore it completely. Hopefully this game will get me going into crafting and gathering. :)

Crafting will be integral to the node system, or so it seems from what they have said so far. Crafting will be required for much of the game's activities. I'm quite interested to see what direction they take with the different types of crafts for each archetype(gathering, processing, crafting).

I have a crafter's soul. Though gathering seems a bit tedious, i will deal with it if it helps my crafting. Though that being the case, I haven't found any major details about the crafting system. Would someone be kind enough to enlighten me if you do know?

I love crafting. I dont mind long hours spent with gathering precious materials. If they spice up the process with anything, its half a win. A good and entertaining crafting system is the other half.

Well we know a fair bit by now. You craft by using recipes, which can be found many places such as quests, mob drops, freeholds, organizations etc. To get the required materials, you'll need to gather raw materials, refine the materials using processing profession, and finally crafting the items using the recipes. Using caravans may be required to get certain goods.

You can also pimp caravans, build ships, backpacks for larger inventory etc. Ashes is one of few games where I'm actually really looking forward to getting into this :D

I like to have smaller content like crafting and even like the pet stuff because if my son wants to play he can just run and gather

My biggest bad habit is that I just can never pass up a gathering node, especially early into a new game or new expansion for WoW... always thinking in my head, "I can sell this got a lot right now since demand will be high" and then never sell it, instead banking it all until I end up needing it, which by that time the price is way down... The crafting part of games I tend not to focus to much on, always figure I can just buy what I need from the money I make from the materials I sell... So I'm hoping this time around, I'll sell while it's high for once!

haha, yeah you gotta sell those early materials while they are in the biggest need. $$$ :)

By the way, Steven did specifically state that even "early game" materials/crafts will be required later on, so we won't get a state where all low level crafting stuff is just useless.
