Community Spotlight: Crafting Becomes Personal

Community Spotlight: Crafting Becomes Personal

In this week's Community Spotlight, Mike Bitton shines the light on a thread started by Disatisfied9.  In the hot topic of discussion folks weigh in on whether players can set themselves apart through crafting in an MMO.

Oh, how we've forgotten. Star Wars Galaxies, as several users mentioned, did all what Disatisfied9 suggested was unfathomable and more. In fact, there was such a variety between crafters who really worked at their craft it really put me off from trying to dip my toes in as well (I was intimidated by their dedication!). On the vanity side, crafters could personalize every item with their own name and description and many even had naming schemes, going so far as to create "lines" of items to reflect their brand. For example, a crafter might have a certain line of more economical weapons for sale and would denote this with the name of the line, while a more expensive and exclusive line of items would have an appropriate line name to go with it as well.
