Sorry, Work made me late to this rubble pounding party.
It doesn’t have to be easier.
RNG is not = to difficulty
RNG is = to bull████
Even a brain dead monkey can most likely pull a slot machine lever.
I don’t agree with this, when I witness people buying things like rock and stone, and other materials that anyone should be able to collect themselves but for whatever reason don’t/wont. then I am sure the lack of RNG will not mean everyone is going to make there own tools,
Furthermore I would debate that If I had my way with how the forge should work and make it based off of skill based events and not RNG, A system that requires skill, fast thinking and/or reaction time to execute correctly, the forge would be a lot more difficult to operate then it is right now. for the reason mentioned in my reply to AeneaGames
Yes there should be some rare things, but there isn’t anything exciting that is rare in this game. They should add extremely rare cosmetic drops, or pets, or mounts, or an item skin, or something that is unlike everything we do already have with a drop rate somewhere between 0.01% to 0.001%.
And they could add in rare drops for crafting special types of items, NOT forging an existing item, NOT buffing an existing item, but something 100% new.
I am a hardcore player and I disagree with RNG being an requirement to keep hardcore players.
RNG haves its place in some areas. Mainly Loot tables, The Centraforge is not one of them in my book
