For one, dragon quest hasn't even existed in years and monsters still drop DQ items? I haven't ever seen a company so careless with their game.
For two, every low level item you can make is completely 100% useless, because the game gives you such strong equipment from quests. If you're going to make tier 1-4 crafting recipes 100% useless, then just remove them from the game.... Might as well remove all the low level equipment from merchants too because it's, again, 100% useless.
Last point, why the **** do you get giant HP/MP charms until level 100??? I was fighting a boss and went afk for 5 minutes because he posed no threat at all against my charms. You might as well go afk against almost every enemy in the game because of this, which is abysmal game design.
In conclusion, this game is botched. The game's director could easily fix it, but they choose to have it in a ruined state with no sign of trying to fix or balance it. The game is just too botched for me to play in it's current state and I hope eventually these problems get fixed, but I'm not holding my breath...
