In testing out a brand new avatar with no artisan or prosperity tools, it's clear that the system is fundamentally broken. For example, just try and scrap several hundred items. Your tool will constantly break (since it takes a durability hit for every "scrap" you do), adding literal hours to the process of having to constantly repair (or replace) the damn tool. This is a major headache, and I can't even imagine how god awful it must be for new players to have to deal with something like this. So I would suggest that either: a) There be a possibility to buy a special unbreakable tool from the in game addon store for COTOs (clearly something that doesn't have all the pluses that artisan & prosperity tools do, maybe just 5% production speed increase vs the 10% from artisan/prosperity, and no success chance increase?) or b) Rework the crafting system. At the least, remove scrapping from causing durability hits. If Port's looking for an easy win on making it so players stick around, this one would help.
