What would I do as a crafter?

    Everytime a patch comes out that has to do with any usable item that isn't crafted, crafters everywhere cry foul. Here's what I would do from my very small piece of UO I play in.

    On my shard I wish crafters would...

    Take those low end runics and make some elemental weapons

    Craft some woodland armor with uneven resists that are good for imbuing/enhancing.

    Run around shame and grab some of the left behind loot, there are plenty of items left behind on level 1 & 2 that are not cursed and have starting mods that are not imbuable. Imbue / enhance then resell.

    Mine some turquoise and make some cool +5 SSI rings

    This is just from my very limited area of play I'm sure others could add to this. The days of crafting "GM" items and running a vendor are way over.

    right now elemental slayer is huge.
    go down to the abyss and kill some goblins for essence of control and some slimes for the viles of vitrol

    spam in chat, making elemental slayer weapons.. you will have no problems getting a bite.

    ...

    Yep... targeted Slayer weapons, Enhancing items with Dull Copper to max out durability, Imbuing Luck on items you can reverse the -100 "curse".

    And of course the usual crafted/imbued specialized suits which are still a better bet overall than the Shame loot.

    Crafters are fine. Figure out the Market and go with it.

    If you don't mind armor with 35-45 durability. Nobody wants to pay for a piece for at least what went into it, will sell for alone. With the new easy Shame unravel for relics. Wont have to worry about cheep armor being bought just for unraveling.

    I think for a good time players will be adjusting their own suits. With all the new goodies it is going to be ME time. For a few months again like after Imbueing came out. Been mining and filling BODs. Will have to spend some time doing the mini champs for blobs. More so then before now have a supply of relic frags for the other mods.

    Crafters are the unsung heroes of the UO world!

    Granted, it seems like malls come and go constantly… a mall worth it's salt has a few vendors, even if they are owned all by the same person… that offer different goods for different people. I would LOVE to find someone who would like to specialize in the stuff you’re talking about to place vendors in my mall. Yes, some times prices go down on items because of publishes and changes, but it's like anything else… it's about supply and demand. I prefer dealing in items that can be crafted easily… or collected easily, that people are too lazy to do for themselves. Not that I make tons of gold that way, but everyone seems happy in the end. I have no plan on bothering with the Shame loot... or understanding it. hehe Too much other stuff to do for me.

    It seems to me, the newer player today just doesn’t want to build crafters… cause it's too much fuss and trouble. Well, who do they come to? Us. ;)

    you can make a 6 piece plate enhanced after you imbue it with dull copper in the 200s with no pof.
    if you lmc7, hpi4 and stam 7 each piece you got a nice beginner warriors suit.

    sell such suits for about 3.5 to 4m and i bet someone would buy them.

    youre looking at about 24 relics and a few gems.. plus the cost of iron and dull copper ingots..
