Looking at that work in progress screenshot, i hope you'll be providing better multi element gear bonuses in the future aswell. Having one of my classes preferring to play Earth main / Air secondary pretty much since inception, i found the currently offerings ( ex: Whisper set) a bit lackluster while day dreaming with DP set - forfut is a nice set (minus the -bonuses) but lacks a worthy follow up for me at the moment to develop my build further.
Really happy to see this carrying over to crafting aswell, making it more valued outside the current legendary crafts and a few other things - who knows, it may even allow to compete in the market as an actual business with a greater item variety and demand.
I'll also echo the PP complain trend, even when i don't have an enutrof toon or multi accounts dedicated to item drops. Although, spending most of the time in PP gear instead of my better fighting gear to boost the current drop chances and locks, leaves me with an uneasy feeling more often than not. Somehow, i think this situation could be improved without adding (even more) grinding to the already increasingly grindy game for the sake of longevity and sanity.
Overall, intentions look good and reasonable but we have yet to see their execution and reception.
