    Hey guys i was asking around and i found a few people who thought i would be good to have the maker skill on this server would it be at all possible to do that pretty much would give a better reason for collecting ores and other in game items and would give people more reason to be online grinding for their items not sure if everyone would agree to that tbh idk if its even possible but i think having the maker skill would pretty much be more fun as to crafting and using the things we collect in game you guys let me know what u think and negative or positive comments are welcome :)

    Reading over that thread again, I remember that players could *also* make Monster Crystals with a stack of monster common drops. If there were an exchange NPC set up to take bundles of 200 [item] for a designated leveled [crystal/craft item], and another to handle exchanges of [crystal] + plates/gems for equipment, there could be a feasible Maker-esque system in Legends. It would require a decent amount of coding, but if I understand v62 properly, it is possible.

    Quickedit: Not that I think it should be a priority, and I understand if its not a project anyone wants to take on atm. Might be a decent side-project though.

    I've proposed the same thing last year. It would be an excellent addition! But I understand the time and energy would be extensive. BUT WORTH IT, NONETHELESS!!!!

    So making monster crystals out of etcs is possible. Making gears out of monster crystals is possible.

    But how would we add in the gem effects when added to the gears? I have a feeling there's something client-sided to this, and of course it also would require a change in data structure. It may be that with the v62 client, it's impossible.

    The gems could possibly have to be scrapped, though maybe it's possible to Frankenstein something from the code used for stimulators? Without that structure, going through and coding for each possible outcome would be tedious, to say the least. I'm not 100% on how the code works, but this is definitely the biggest hurdle. It would definitely either have to be scrapped or heavily improvised. Even if we couldn't have the modifiers, it would still be nice to be able to craft upper-level equips beyond just weapons.

    That would mean just using NPCs that are similar to those found in other cities that can make Shoes and Gloves. I would scrap the Monster Crystal aspect of the Maker Skill entirely. It served no purpose other than to clog your Etc inventory. If that element is absolutely necessary, I think the Powders sufficed in that regard. Nevertheless, the main source of Monster Crystals were from deconstructing other equips. This caused Neckson to increase the Equip drop rate and lower the mesos you'd get from NPCs for selling the equips. I, personally, didn't care for that aspect at all.


    It would take a tediously copious amount of coding, but it would definitely be possible. But if we cannot add the Graded Gem effect, then I don't really see much of a point to having it.

    The code involving stimulators is pretty straightforward. Don't use a stimulator and you get an item with completely average stats. Use a stimulator, and the stats on the item vary by +/- 10%, up to a max of 5. This is kind of like how loot drops from monsters are generated.

    Since all that kind of code is something completely separate from the gems, you can't do it that way, because with maker you should be able to create an above average item, and then add a gem to increase its stats even more beyond the norm. And then there is scrolling.
