So far I think the mining and smithing rework looks pretty promising but to be able to make such high end gear seems really OP. I'm not sure right now how difficult it is to make this gear (because we're able to basically get ores for free right now) but I'm concerned being able to make this gear too easily will greatly devalue other armour sets.

I mean even being able to make t80+ gear, that totally makes ports gear pointless. I've even seen some T92 power armour which would be insane if it's made too easy to get.

I think it's better to leave the high end gear uncraftable and leave some things for obtaining through pvm.

I've only played beta for maybe 30 minutes so far but that's my first impression basically. I also think that they should just make mining and smithing 120 skills with such an extensive update, but doesn't look like that will happen.

They've made smithing the high-end armours very time intensive, both so they retain value and don't harm the PvM versions. Also, apart from the masterwork elder rune and T92 armour they are all tank armour so don't have the same power stats as PvM.
I bet you hovered over here thinking you'll find some lame pun, quote or "philosophical" thought. You wasted your time.

How is it good for the game to have the highest end gear so easily obtainable though? I get that you're jealous of people that can pvm but at least try to think these things through.

I wouldn't call the armor "easily attainable". It still takes some serious time invested to make it. Granted, I don't think high tier armors with extra perks should be attainable by smithing them. There needs to be a balance. But I don't see why skillers shouldn't be afforded the opportunity to get high tier armor.

How is good for PvM to devalue numerous skills like smithing? Such entitlement from PvMers, while all it does is ruin game balance.. You shouldn't be able to get armour or weapons through PvM at all, you should be made 100% dependable on skillers for such things.

Furthermore, when something is obtainable from skilling, that doesn't automatically make it easy to obtain. In fact I would argue that with PvM it is even easier to obtain as all you have to do is click on food every once in a while and wait for the item to drop. PvM is overrated and doesn't require much skill at all, like is often thought.

This is how most games work. You go on an adventure, you kill some big bad monster, it drops some useful item. You're trying to tell me that you think you deserve the highest end gear from an afkable skill?

lol
