Not sure if this as been brought up recently or not but, as player who enjoys immersion in any game, and being crafting an important part of this game, what are your thoughts on having crafting animations? Probably a bit niche, but...
I've always liked the sound of blacksmiths, the hammer meeting the anvil with a small surge of flames and sparks or the soft and strong sound of a leatherworker tanning skins, more so when we can see that actually happening.
Do you think it would be nice to have such thing in GW2? Maybe increase the range in which you can intereact with a specific crafting station and doing so your character spawns an anvil and starts hammering (Weaponsmith and Armorsmith example)?
Crafting has a great role in GW2 but the whole thing feels like I'm using a smartphone, just a bunch of dudes staring at the crafting station, no sound no movement, imagine if wood cutting would only require you to stand near the tree waiting for the loading bar and then the tree falling over by herself… you get my point even if oddly described
And while we´re at it, is there anyway to begin crafting with all the category tabs closed from the start?
Formula for success: Rise early, work hard, strike oil.
