Crafting Quests For The Holidays!
I was thinking about the holidays. The only thing I never am satisfied with is the holiday quests. The Halloween Towers were fun until you did it enough that it became boring. Not only that, you are now are at a level high enough that they are literally a breeze to go through. Not only that the Nosferabbit quest and dungeon was sadly brief. For Level 90s, it took us five minutes to finish. Not only that, it didn't even drop anything great. It left people going, "Well, then what's the point?"
So, I've been thinking what they should do for the holiday time that would actually keep us on our toes. I realized that they should add crafting quests for holiday time! It would be easy to add and set up. And it can apply to ALL character levels.
First of all, there would be holiday themed reagents only dropped during the holidays like Candy Cane reagents, Holly reagents, Pine Cone reagents. Heck you can be incredibly creative. With those cool holiday reagents, you get to craft holiday themed items that's only available during the holiday time. You can craft holiday items like maybe different kinds of Christmas Trees, Wreaths, Fireplaces, Snowglobes, Candy Cane fences. Again, you can be quite creative with this. You can even have a Gingerbread house maybe!
But the most important thing of all, you get holiday themed crafting quests that's only available during the holidays. Every year, the goal of quest is new and different, so they aren't the same every year, which would be a refreshing change. Every year they can add new and unique reagents. One year you can get Candy Cane, Holly, Pine Cone reagents, the next year you could get Ornament, Snowflake, Reindeer Fur reagents. If you do enough new reagents every year, you can eventually recycle them. For instance, in four years, you can start again with Candy Cane, Holly, Pine Cone reagents.
To get them, of course you would have to farm for those special cool reagents to craft those cool holiday items to be able to turn them in for the holiday quest. Every year, Wizard101 should add new crafting quests with unique new goals. One year, you have to make this item. Next year, you have to make ANOTHER item. And of course, in the end you KEEP the item.
Not only that, why not add holiday crafting tables like the way they add holiday vendors. There's a special crafting table that is only available at holidays in Wizard City somewhere where you can craft holiday themed furniture and houses. Maybe a holiday crafting shop in one of the empty unused shops in Shopping District. And of course, there should be an unique Crafting Holiday Vendor NPC that gives quests every year, for every holiday. It could be the same person which will make it easier. It should be someone like Zeke who needs help during the holidays. This way we can craft things and help them or something. This way, this person can show up for every holiday without creating multiple NPCs.
It would be great to be able to do new quests every year for holidays that always changes and it's certainly easier to set up than a dungeon that high level chars can beat in ten minutes. More bang for the buck really. I would love to do this kind of thing for Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Valentine's Day, St Patrick's, July 4th. Each holiday would have its own unique reagent. I mean Candy Cane reagent would be for Christmas only while Firework reagents would be for July 4th, same goes for the holiday furniture and houses. They would remain unique for the holidays.
I really hope that Wizard101 and eventually Pirate101 will use this idea since I honestly think that it would be helpful and even more, it's FUN!!! Even thinking about this, makes my heart pound in excitement. This would certainly keep us busy during the holidays!
