As a Grand Master Artisan, I have to say the level 55 equipment we can craft is awesome. I have a robe and boots that, when worn, basically make me impervious to fire and allow me more critical hits than ever before. Farming Nuncio has become a cinch, now that I have this gear.
Gardening is a hoot! Firstly, it's hilarious to wander through my garden and hear the parsley sing or the trumpet vines trumpet, and the helephant ears are wonderful. Secondly, receiving rare reagents and treasure cards when I harvest is a HUGE help, since I am trying to purchase, and craft, the Celestia house.
So, just a quick thanks to KI for introducing gardening, and making crafting into a fun, if a little time consuming, challenge. Keep up the good work!
