So I’ve accumulated three different items with a prismatic gem slot on my Druid main in World or Warcraft, and this finally prompted me to star work on my Mage’s jewelcrafting profession.
As part of an early quest you get to do a mini-game of sorts to cut the gemstone into a polished gem ready for use. It’s a kind of bizarre addition to a MMO that does not do mini-games for crafting.
I’m used to crafting mini-games mind, since Everquest 2 has them in spades and Final Fantasy 14 also boasts more interactive crafting than the “click and wait” standard of most games in the genre. What was weird about this mini-game was the lack of actual gameplay involved – it was just a lot of clicking and some rotating basically. I wonder whether some developer with a penchant for the jewelcrafting profession pushed this? Do any other professions have something similar in Legion?
