I do like the crafting system; it’s an element of randomness, but you can still improve the things you craft. It’s a bit costly to do it, but it’s manageable and gives you something to work for.
But when it comes to getting and re-rolling properties, it’s a hot pile of poo, if you ask me.
I’m pretty sure they decided it to be this way so the players get something to strive for and not to get the perfect gear in less than a day, but as it is now it’s more frustrating and annoying than even the slightest way of fun.
First, you spend hundreds of green and blue dust, and hundreds of minutes clicking on the re-roll button, (and you keep running out of green dust while the blue dust just stacks up more and more).
When you finally get the two properties you want, they have poor percentage so you keep re-rolling, spending another hundred dust, wishing for those two properties to appear again, and hopefully not with even lower percentage than you got before.
Suggestion 1 - Add the option to improve existing properties.
It can be very expensive, for example 20 green / 20 blue dust for 0.1% improvement or something; it will take a long time to max it out, but you know you will eventually do it.
Suggestion 2 - Being able to choose if you want to take the new properties or keep the ones that you had.
Often I settle with the properties that I want, but with too low percentages. It’s good, but not good enough. If I want to take a chance to get them better it will take a long time and a lot or resources to finally get those two again with better percentages, and I’d prefer to have the correct properties at low levels than two wrong properties.
Suggestion 3 - Being able to convert blue dust to green dust, or substitute green dust with more blue.
Playing on Recruit or Veteran over and over, just to get green items to salvage feels very counter productive and tedious, instead of continuing to play on Champion and Legendary and having more fun while doing it.
Normally it costs 1 green and 1 dust, but if you have no green dust it could instead cost 3 blue. You’d be able to lower the ever-increasing blue pile, and you don’t have to “lower your standards” by going back to playing on Recruit just for green gear.
