My dream of building a crafting workshop for in-game friends was originally dashed after a couple of people were unable to use the stations in my house. I was rather bumped but still happy that I had achieved my personal goal of being able to craft in my house.
Good news came when I joined the NoLimit guild and members dropped in to say hello. It turns out that guild members can use crafting stations placed in each others homes. WOOT. We’ve tried placing crafting stations in the Guild Castles with no luck of anyone other than the owner being able to use them. We’re hoping the full release of Castle features will enable this or provide Castle versions that can be shared.
Until then big crafters in the guild have been using my house as a convenient alternative. They can easily go from the Guild Castle to my house since the NPCs are right next to each other in Varanas. People really enjoy the fact that they can do all the combines and production in one location. No running around to the different stations in the main cities. It’s really fun to have so many visitors and it’s rewarding to see others enjoy the fruits of my labor.
Achieving this in ROM is right up there with hitting max rank for the first time, getting that first epic or downing a raid boss. It's something I've wanted for a very long time and now I've achieved it. *Wears a wide Cheshire-cat grin*
