Players can now do the production portion of crafting without having to pull the resources from their bank.
THANK GOD. Glad to see they're working on getting discovery to work the same way.
I don't think I'd like discovery to work out of your bank like regular crafting. It would take all the.. discovery out of it. Crafting different items and seeing how they might combine, discovering new items by looking at special crafting mats and trying to mix and match is what I find most fun about the crafting. If all mats showed in discovery it would simply become a game of 'click the highlighted items'. IMHO, that would take all the fun out of it.
How is it fun to have to double-click 80 times to put stuff from the bank into your backpack in order to be able to do discovery? Once all your items are in your pack, discovery is still a matter of "check the highlighed items."
Being able to do so from your bank saves you from having to first spend ten minutes transferring all that shit to your backpack...
