Oct 3rd 2011 8:12AM The creation of BoA items has all but destroyed crafting. If you make any kind of armour or weapons - may as well create an enchanter alt to DE them all because they're absolutely redundant.
I would have liked there to be a point to crafting items - even old world items from vanilla and BC - maybe donate them to a faction (Aldor and/or Scryers) for example, to gain reputation. Especially the old epic recipies that dropped in old raids.
When I used to play (thank you Cataclysm) I used to love farming for rare, world drop enchants, or recipies that dropped from bosses and mobs in instances and raids. Now, as soon as a new patch comes out, there is no point, unless you're a completist - because no-one wants anything that you create. There is no market for it unless it is absolutely current and therefore incredibly over-priced.
Blizzard killed crafting. Just another in a long line of things they killed to make the game "better". There's a dichotomy in there somewhere.
