In short terms: Why someone hast to know how to CRAFT a Weapon or Armor to use it? It's a waste of skill points and pretty useless that you've to Skill a lot of Crafting Skills just to skill also the "usage" skils. For Armor as Example. To get bonus like temperated armor or movement speed etc you've to learn also how to craft the armors. Same for the weapons. Firearms. You've to learn a bunch of different skills just to calm your aim or speed up the reload minigame. In my opinion it would be a good idea to rework the Skill Trees. For example: A Knight was someone who was used to wearing armor and fight with several weapons, but not in creating their own. A Sniper or Pistoleer are masters in using their weapons that doesn't mean they can craft their own Last example: Most of us IRL wear pants but i am sure most of us can't weave them ^^' Also working in Beastmaster or Shipwrighting/Sailing A good Rider doesn't mean that he/she is good in taming or train their animal And just cause someone is a good captain that doesn't mean he's also a good shipwright and so on. Long story short: Bulding/Crafting and using are different things.
Heyas! Probably something what got ask already, but didn't find anything about it with the search function. The Idea/Suggestion I was just about kill (Butcher) one of my bulls i've breed before, cause in 1st case i didn't need it anymore and 2nd case i could use the Meat and Ressources. But with Crossbow, Axe, Pickaxe it's pain in the Arrrrr to get it killed + it feels wrong hitting the Animal like a Drumset. So what i think is, there should be kinda "butcher knife" or "bolt pistol" what can kill the own tame with one hit. It feels less cruel + i guess it's way more immersive butchering an animal fast this way, without hitting the animal till your stammina ran out for the 4th time. So yeah a butcher system would be something what really could be cool and usefull so you can breed animals for meat and other ressources. So yeah hope it's an idea i am not the only one who may like it. See ya around! Synthenza
