Dear friends,

The excitement you get when you come across a Plentiful gathering node is something special. I think this same thing could exist with crafting stations. My suggestion is that randomly throughout the seven realms you might come across crafting stations that have a plenti type affect (maybe green sparkly things instead of purple), and provide a crafting boost. Something like double or triple the crafting speed.
Thank you for your time :)

Or crafting costs significantly reduced or free charge while plenty mode is active
Ardent Society chests have a chance of getting an item that removes crafting costs for 3 minutes, I have a few scattered across my toons. So I would think such a function is possible, would be a treat for anyone that doesn’t have membership…. Although I highly recommend it ;p

I join the crowd that surrounds the loom,
Elbow-to-elbow, no sitting room,
All stand at the ready, all ready to go,
To be the first at the loom, ready to sew.

We stood there for minutes that turned into days,
Tempers were flaring, and patience was frayed,
For the moment the station started to glow,
Only one from the crowd got a chance there to sew.

We waited anew for the station once more,
What once was quite fun was now a terrible chore,
Where once we were friendly to all that we know,
Now we pushed and we shoved for we were ready to sew.

I was never the first, and so I am the last,
A part of the crowd that was never quite fast,
The part of the crowd who cried out in woe,
Stuck there and waiting for our turn to sew.

I see this reducing attendance at crafting parties.

Since I never seem to be able to make crafting parties, I'm not sure that concerns me.

I stood in Maiden with a crowd at the loom,
Elbow-to-elbow, no sitting room…

Whisper to Impresario: Someone just sniped my plenti crafting station. Can you fix that?

:eek:

Ok, I’ll be serious for a moment. I’ve gotta tell you though, being serious is really, really hard…

I see a fair way to implement something like this is where you might periodically get a random buff to your character. If you see the random buff applied to your character, then you can drop everything you are doing and rush to a crafting station to take advantage of the buff that has been applied. While the buff is active, it provides some sort of crafting boost.

I do find it incredibly disappointing now that I have maxed all of my crafting and gathering skills that I have no way to ever get that level-up boost ever again on my toon. Maybe your chance of getting this random buff increases with each gathering / crafting skill you maximize.

How about if crafting items built up "charges" rather like some combat feats - and after (say) 100 charges you get a short buff in crafting?

That way the people who benefit the most are the people who craft the most.

I like that idea - but what if once you’ve crafted a certain number of times you received a small item in your bag with that buff so you could use it later. So if you don’t want the buff right away, you could still use it later.

What if the buff can only be applied when a crowd of 3 or more is crafting at the station and everyone crafting there gets the buff?
OH, I like this suggestion... it would encourage players to craft together, instead of fighting over crafting stations with the plenty buff. 🙂🤝🙂

But... currently my favorite in game pastime is yelling at people who take my plentis. You can’t discuss crafting plentis and get my hopes up of more old man “get off my lawn” yelling and then take it away from me...
IKR?! 😆🤣👇
