When I craft I expect consistent results. Random procs like those of an alchemist master are fine and fun, they're pure bonus. What isn't fun is having to make 20+ of a single item just to hope and pray for the right random enchant. What isn't fun is having to waste 3 gems a day trying and praying for that one cut you actually one. What isn't fun is having to make while piles of pots while hoping you learn something that's actually useful. What isn't fun and hasn't been fun since Wrath is having to use daily research to learn worthless glyphs while the good ones are still out of reach.
More and more crafting annoys me and what makes this even worse for me is when I look at how much I love everything else about this expansion. The land, the story, the talents, the raids, I can go on and on about how great this expansion is...but the crafting is just so horrible to me! There's a lot that needs to be fixed.
Either make scrolls of Wisdom craft able without a CD or make them BoE. The same goes for Imperial Silk. One or the other is fine, cause then people can drop mats on me and bam I make what they want. As it stands they have to hand over the mats and wait for days until I get everything they need.
Spirits need to be BoE, they're used far too much in crafting to not be trade able.
Give JCs back their dailies! I would be going through clean up right now with them, going through and picking up the cuts nobody wants. But instead I'm still hoping for a few good cuts that people ask me for.
Stop the random crafting, just stop it. Trying to make gear for a mage? Here, have fun waiting for something without spirit! Good luck if you want certain stats on it! Just give us a huge list of craftables that have set stats.
And please give alchemists proper training, I hated leveling my alchemist, having no clue what was coming was painful.
