Well, that was fun
Some people complain about 5e’s crafting rules. Others think it’s just fine. What do you want out of them?
enchantment.Instead of crafting new equipment. I would like to be able to craft specific properties onto my equipment, preferably requiring some sort of materials that isn't limited to gold, or residium.
For example. Craft cold resistance onto my armor, or Giantsbane onto my longsword. Or ability to craft custom ammunition, poisoned arrows, explosive xbow bolts.
With some kind of limitation, perhaps only one upgrade per piece of equipment.
I think the main thing is that crafting should allow a player to customize, or make specific pieces of equipment that aren't available to purchase, or acquire elsewhere. If its optional and non unique, I'm not typically going to bother with investing time and any feats/character options into it.
Hmmm, I was thinking of it not being a magical enchantment. Crafting I would think would be more mechanical, natural or alchemical upgrades.enchantment.
And this is why the crafting rules are crap. No free stuff for you!look I want super cool armour and weapons made to speck that the dm will not just dangle in front of me, plus who hates side quest to get the crazy stuff to make the worlds most broken sword?
