Well that's the point of the game, to socialise. But most people would rather go silently on the messed up market ward and then complain there's no socialising in-game? I just sit at the GLD guild happily hammering some rings, then people pop up and ask me to make this and make that, which is a nice distraction from my grind. They get their "hard to find" item in like 1 minute, instead of saying how bad it is to find X/Y/Z item in the market ward.
I understand the concept, I wouldnt mind asking someone in a LS to craft me something (if I had a LS) but since there is some people in FFXI that was stealing people or was just angry when you ask for help I'm not really willing to ask a crafter I dont know...
I would never make Brass Daggers as a Blacksmith except for leves, since
a) I can't actually repair them
b) they require a metal that I have to get from a different class (or pay the exorbitant vendor price)
c) that other class can ALSO make that exact same final item and
d) by the time I can make them, there are other things I can make that are better (Iron Dagger). This would be a case where I would use an overranked weapon on my Gladiator -- I can repair the overranked weapon easily but not the one more appropriate for my rank.
I can understand people not being happy about there being no Auction House in game, but blaming everything on it is ludicrous.
The Brass Daggers is made by Goldsmithing and can be repair by Goldsmithing, maybe you were thinking of the Bronze Daggers made by Blacksmith since the metal that is required to make it is from goldsmithing (Brass Nugget)
a) If you were thinking of the Bronze Dagger the metal needed to repair is from Blackmithing (Bronze nugget)...
b) Most of the complicated craft need ingredient from other craft metal or not so you will never made complicated craft because of that? And Brass nugget can be done by a goldsmithing lvl 1 so you could make them easily.
c) I can be wrong but I never saw an item that can be craft by 2 differente class of crafter in FFXI and neither in FFXIV for what I saw...
d) Since you mix up about the Brass dagger being a Blacksmithing craft at rank ~25, the last part about Iron dagger is sure to be a better item to craft at this lvl :p But you're right about using a Overranked weapon that you can repair rather then one of you rank that you cant ^^
And for the AH i dont care much for now, I'm using the yg site for search my item when it's not in the ward it should be. And I can live with people putting there retainer in a ward where most of there item is suppose to be sold and having item that is not relate to the ward (I do it myself rather then just using 4-5 slot i can sell 8 item) And i can understand there is some retainer that had sold the item about the appropriate ward and are still there selling others stuff, but the thing I hate is people putting like 8 Armor to sell in the battlecraft where it's supose to be selling weapon, if there is 8 armor to sell it mean he didnt put a weapon in it because the max for sell is 8 item...
