As I invested in premium for 3 months, I decided to craft lures to 100%.
As many people complained, it costs an arm (and even an eye).
I'm not here to talk about how much it costs, but more about the process itself.
I think hooks should not be used in the lure crafting process, particularly for wobblers/jerkbaits/poppers (everything that requires 2 hooks).
I understand they can be needed for spinners (1 hook), as they are not practical to be put/removed IRL (gripper needed). But it's easier for wobblers etc... as hooks are attached to the lure with split rings (even for spoons, hooks are attached to them with split rings too).
I didn't want to buy tons of hooks, so I passed a lot of time removing them from newly crafted lures just in order to continue the skill's upgrading, and it was super annoying.
I think hooks are absolutely not necessary for wobblers (etc...) crafting.
So the idea would be just to remove hooks for those categories of lures (2 hooks). If there's an economical side that has to be kept about this, hooks could be replaced by split rings.
Thanks for attention ^^.
