I want really thanks to developers of this game for developing some mechanics that made me feel really bad at first, then feel really great after.
First of all because I was all excited about this game. I found out about Guild Wars II 2 months ago, logged in and with one week after I started playing, I purchased my first expansion. Few days after that I decided to purchase 2 lws + another expansion and loaded some more money to buy gems so I could have some goods that I really wanted. As usual I decided to register myself in this forum and get some advices from veteran players about how to gear myself, how to get ascended and legendary gear and they helped me out with some great tips. One of them was about leveling my crafting skills in order to create my own gear.
I spent 2 months to find out the best way to lvl a profession and which one would be the best for a Thief. Last week I finally got level 500 on leatherwork and decided that I would gather sources to start crafting my ascended gear. Saved some gold and today decided to load again some money, so I would be able to buy some mats adding to the ones I already have saved filled my bank and inventory with all this and started crafting till I realize that to craft 1 piece of armor I have to wait 8 days to get it done. Because 2 of the items that is important to craft all pieces can only be crafted once per day, they can't be sold on TP because they are account bound and only for the coat I need 8 of them. If I knew I had to have all this work to lvl a profession, gather all materials and despite all, wait 8 days to craft only 1 piece I wouldnt even start at all. In all other games I've played as long as you have mats and the right lvl to craft an item all you have to do is start crafting it.
After aknowledging this I got really disappointed and frustrated, but since I already loaded money, bought gems and exchanged for gold for a high rate, I will just finish what I started. But after this, I can assure you I wont ever spend 1 cent of my money in gw2. Just because I think this mechanic is so stupid and I feel cheated on my gameplay. I am not from USA to start with and 1 US$ costs 3,15 of my country money and after achieve everything I should to be able to craft anything I wanted, I have to wait 8 days to craft only one piece. In the end of this month I have to travel to another city and if everything goes well I will move there and not be able to play this game for a while and the few days I'd have to enjoy it, I cant, because of the way it was planned to be.
I am just expressing my disappointed with this situation. I am not asking or will read any reply from players about this subject. just stating my point of how dumb I think this crafting mechanic is. It doesnt matter if your loading screen to craft something is faster than other games if you have to wait 8 days to craft something anyway. At least if I wait 1 hour to craft something in other games, it will only take 1 hour of my time not 8 days. And I am thankful for letting me realize it is pointless to invest my money here.
You sure it was me commenting it? Maybe it was an illusion all along, bruh...
