Do you want a new crafting discipline ?
Maybe something lore-based (Historian) or fun-based (Musician) or anything else, tell us !

For me, I'd like to see an astronomer discipline. Using stars to seek prophecies (a prophecy activated give you an encounter good or evil somewhere in the world).
Like Malomedies, seek the future through stars...

    There are plenty imo. I think Cooking and Jeweler should be upped to 500 well before we start talking new classes and even then I still believe we have all we need. Would be happy to have new things added to them and the UI updated though.

    Astronomy sounds cool.

    Good luck.

    Not the way they're currently handled, which is to throw a bunch of mats and money at the UI and then alt-tab out of the game while stuff makes. If there was something mechanically interesting, of course I'd want it.

    Breeder: Pretty much a crafting skill to make Mount skins for own usage.

    I say we have too many and should just remove some and merge them personally. Artificer/Weaponsmith should be one.
    Armoursmith should do all armour. And so on and so forth.

    I totally agree that crafting discipline is too much like others MMO. They should give access to specific mechanics in open world and be different.

  • Yes !

    I'd like to see a "tool maker" discipline that can create vendor-purchasable items for the character to use. The idea is that characters which invest the time and money into making the "tool maker" can get slight advantages to gathering or salvaging. Additionally, these characters can create special consumable items that would give boosts similar to the guild hall bartender fella (they could stack with the bartender buffs). These characters can have a sink for things like Luck, Runes and Sigils.

    How I envision it working:
    1. The discipline would go to level 500.
    2. Can create consumables that give buffs to salvaging, crafting, magic find or gathering.
    3. Creates consumable Gathering tools and salvage kits.
    4. Can create soul-bound consumable items that aren't available on the Trading Post
    5. Can create insignias that can be mixed with Gathering tools and salvage kits for additional chances at successfully getting rare materials or chance to recover upgrades.
    6. Can create special 'Salvage Rune' kits and devices; salvaging a rune gives at least the sell price of the rune. Using the kit gives a small change to get a bit more money, and a small chance to get some luck or Tier Crafting Material (like dust or whatever).

    Since the flashy dyes and some outfits, i'd say the Pimp.


    True answer

    We don't need any new profession. I just would like to be able to obtain legendary trinkets ( accessories, amulets, rings, backpack ) without skin. Just for QoL.

    Armor pieces are 300g each, with an horrible skin, and THIS IS WONDERFUL!
    Now we just need to have raw weapons with a similar cost and trinkets.

    Also we are not allowed to have 2 trinkets or more, because HEY! GUESS WHAT! AURORA IS UNIQUE!

    Mother of time game stuff.

    No, there enough of them.

    I voted no just because, from what I can tell, crafting doesn't offer much game-play or interesting customization. Seems more like a gold sink or a way to time-gate content.

    I am totally open to being told I am wrong (I don't craft much).

    I think that there is entirely too much emphasis placed on crafting in this game as it is. Adding more disciplines would make matters that much worse.

    You got a good point there. I mean 99% of the rewards in this game are either crafting mats or salvaged for crafting mats.

    Yes !

    Anets own twists on Fishing and/or Archaeology would be good. Not technically a crafting discipline, but something you need to level up, you get the idea.

    Better get a wriggle on.

  • Ayakaru.6583Ayakaru.6583 Member ✭✭✭✭
    Yes !

    Archeology, to fill the gaps in lore regarding some elder races.
    Jotun archaeology.
    Asura archaeology. How were they long before EOTN)
    Forgotten archaeology.
    Rewards are lore, random loot for exploration, but occasionally pricy trophies and armour or weapons skins (and achievements)

    To defeat the dragons, see the good in them.
    Zhaitan reunites lost ones, primordus creates fertile land, mordremoth spreads the green, and jormag..
    ..jormag? Who's that?

    You're not wrong. >.>

    The two most prominent ways to get stuff in GW2 is either crafting it or buying off the gem store, both of which are rooted in in-game gold.
