Crafting???
« on: 2016 Aug 11, 05:14:56 »
In the combat in LoE thread a crafting system was mentioned, didn't want to hijack that thread so here we are. Can we get any details on this?

I would love to build a little gyrocopter or ornithopter, after all why do you think a unicorn has a gear wing talent mark. I realize that would mean some kind of vehicle system, probably not going to happen, but I can dream

I've seen images of items I have yet to see in this game. Some of them appear to be crafting materials.

That's the best I've got for this.

But what I wouldn't mind crafting is this.

Crafting could be fun and I imagine they'll try to implement something. Though I wouldn't expect it to be a complex system.
I'm an adult. I do what I want.

Sounds something that can be used for making quest items too.

I haven't seen any (yet), but I wouldn't be surprised if there were eventually quests expecting/requiring crafting.
Watch for "Census Taker", the "Snark" ponies, and "Carrot Messenger".

Well, if these things are anything to go by, armor crafting should be coming soon!

I was hoping for something more. When I think of crafting in MMOs, the first thing I think of is armor and weapons. I just thought this game would be different.

Besides who would want something besides Moonlight Armor.  ovO

I saw a couple NPCs mention bicycles, that is one of the things that got my hopes up about a gyrocopter similar to Pinky's in Griffon the brush off.

How about carts so a speedy Pegasus friend could pull my slow flank around ^-^

They have said the game wont focus as much on combat. So maybe these might be ideas they could focus on.

Yes, a cart would be just delightful. Not sure how well it would fit in an inventory, though...

Unless you're Pinkie Pie, I don't think you could just pull that out of your pocket.
...Pun intended.
