A Tale of Four Hats
Remember how I switched my cybertech to armormech? Well, after hitting 400 rather quickly, I had to get all the orange recipes, you know, for fashion. I got most of them rather quickly, but then I got stuck on four effing hats.
Between auction housing on both sides (multiple times a day) and running the appropriate level UT missions, I got the hats. After weeks of trying.
Some people would think I was crazy (most people). I basically couldn’t play my sithie alt because she was parked at the GTN. I had to go through the GTN page by page every time because the search feature is, ahem, interesting. And, of course, there were all the stupid low-level underworld trading missions I was running, when I probably could have been sending my minions on more lucrative endeavors.
The big question is why?
(1) I didn’t want to be asked for something and not have it. Even an ugly hat that nobody would want to wear. Even if it’s a sithie item for someone’s alt. I don’t want to turn anyone away.
(2) Remember how I was afeared that in 1.3 there will be orange boots, gloves, bracers, and belt added for all existing craftable orange sets? Well I was mostly right! From a check of Torhead ptr stuff, each existing orange craftable set will get schematics for matching orange boots, gloves, and belt – but there will be fewer available bracers.1 Yay? With the prospect of having to gather all those recipes, I needed to have all the available schematics NOW before I have to start collecting the new recipes in 1.3.
Or maybe I’m just a crazy person. Crafters are a special breed. A crazy breed.
