Some of adventuring is boring too. Grinding faction on repeatable quests for example. Some of crafting is boring, some of it isn't. I find the quests interesting and the house items that you can get once you get your faction up interesting. I despise grinding rush orders to level crafting. I only do it during double exp events. I miss the pristine bonus. Since it was taken out, I don't even make all the recipes in my recipe books now. Just the ones that are on rush writs. However, I have dabbled at crafting in many games. I've not found any that the actual crafting process wasn't boring or annoying. Sometimes interesting means complicated. I don't want to go through a gazzillion hoops to be able to make one thing.
