    Depends on the game. Star Wars: Galaxies, for example, had etrnie crafting professions. There were people who never fought anything they were just tailors or weaponsmiths or armorers.In general, you don’t usually have to craft, because the people who do craft will sell you the things they make. When you do, a good game makes it as painless as possible.
