    elden slop was just trend chasing after breathe of the wild. all the shit you can craft you used to just be able to buy from merchants. but nope gotta waste time collecting shit so you can craft because you just do okay that's what open world games do

          The funny thing is that the ingredients for the stuff that you actually want to craft are limited.

          can you cheat in arteria leaves, or does the game track it like ancient dragon stones?

    I never did that, I'd just pick up stuff along the way, never had to go out of my way searching for this stuff.
    As for it's usefulness, I'd craft bombs, throwing knives and ballista projectiles all the time.

    It really did feel like a complete afterthought honestly, but I'm already predisposed to hate crafting in games unless there's some actual depth to it. Plus it also negatively impacted their methodology for loot placement. On my first playthrough every time I found a little hidden nook in the world and found an item and it was just 5 mushrooms, a little part of me died. Even a fat stack of runes would have been more rewarding, but there's like 200 armor sets and weapons that can only be obtained by farming enemies with 1-5% drop rates, so why the frick wouldn't they put some of those around the world instead of more arteria leaves?

    I sincerely hope Fromsoft never does this again, all their previous games have been much better without it.

      Jesus, all my complaints at launch are suddenly coming back to me. I remember b***hing about this so much, it makes no frickin sense. Weapons too, why the frick are we 12 entries deep into the soulsbornekino franchise and we still have to farm certain enemies for 1% drop weapons and armor? Lump some of those armor sets in with all the niche faith/arcane/dragon/whatever items in that most players dont have a use for in their build or something

        Someone did the math and it's like 50 out of 126 armor sets and 76 out of around 308 weapons that can only be obtained by farming. Imagine if they just put all of them hidden around the world, or in chests after beating dungeon bosses (so you get more than just another spirit ash you probably won't use).

    The actual idea of the crafting kit is fine, in a massive world you don't want the player to have to constantly go back to specific npcs to buy more pots and arrows and throwing knives so instead you just have them buy the recipe books once and then craft the consumables wherever, but the implementation sucked because you only ended up with shitloads of materials for garbage you'd never need in any situation like berries for Torrent and you'd still end up having to farm materials for the more useful knives, boluses and throwing pots so it wasn't actually any more convenient.

      This is probably pretty close to the right answer, but I think the root of it is that they chose an open-world game this time around. And you can't have the epic open world without the hecking crafting.
      I hope Elden Ring 2 is linear with big maps that journalists can jerk off to.

    The only time I had to farm anything on purpose in elden ring was moss for antidotes on my first playthrough because there was one poison cave I was going through and ran out. However I had already found a cave with tons of moss in it near north mount gelmir that was full of demihuman shits, so it was very easy to clear it, port back a few times and then craft tons of them.

    For buying 999 arrows that was easy to simply farm some runes and buy regular ones, but by picking up all the loot in my way as I ran around I also got to craft some poison ones. As a str dex dude with a bow for pulling or occasionally cheesing a big mob or rot root dragon thing it was very handy. It's been a classic for me ever since demons souls.
