    Lift single guild contract limitations?

    Hi SE,
    It was mentioned in a previous post by either Grekumah or Camate, that SE would consider allowing crafting restrictions to be eased, such that one character could level more than craft to 110 (aside from Fishing).

    There has been no mention of this since. Has this changed?

    Thank you!

    Yes, thank you. I couldn't find this and would have included in my original post.

    There are no plans to allow characters to reach the maximum skill level for every type of craft.

    The reason for this decision falls on two key points:
    • There are a large amount of players that use multiple characters that each have different synthesis masteries, and the impact on these players would be very large.
    • There would be a large amount of text and other aspects that would need to be revamped to adjust for the removal of skill caps.

    While the first reason is an important decision making factor, it's the second reason that is the larger of the two.

    The first reason only exists because of the limits in the first place though

    While from an economic health standpoint I thin it's good that not everyone can master every craft, the fact that it's easily circumvented with additional characters or accounts makes those limits less effective.

    Naturally, as Grekumah said, the technical aspects would make it hard to change now, SE should have seen this coming when those systems were designed.

    So, my feelings about it are kinda mixed. ON the one hand, I think the current system is good for the economy (or rather, was when the economy was stronger), on the other hand, at the current time, most of the crafting in the game is done by the hardest core players that have multiple characters for crafting. SE doesn't want to punish these players, and I can understand that.

    I'm not sure if I"m making sense or not. Lol.

    So why say anything in the first place and get our hopes up? Of course they don't wanna punish these players, they love their extra dollars a month lol. At least remove the contract thing so we can get GP for any guild.

    In other words, part of the reason is they don't want players to max out all crafts on their main accts, then discontinue service to their crafting mules/accts, because that would mean they'd lose money.

    Guess I'll just cross leveling crafts off my list of things to do to keep playing then. Just odd to mention all those players with crafting mules when the AH is empty nowadays save for non-craftable items and some ilvl crafted stuff.
