I have a priest with 90+ ropemaking and trust me the worst part for me was spending the time to make the ropes, sort them and then have the tool imped again. Nahjo priests wouldn't need to spend ANY time to make ropes, yoyos or locks or to grind the related skills. The problem is that the nerf for Nahjo came waaay too late as there are tons of priests who got cheap channeling skill and everyone making a new priest will have to compete with them. I thought of developing my Nahjo priest's casting skills and keeping it as a more active character but now I think that I'll keep it as a mine fixer.
I only wonder if there are plans to make enchanting even more random now as that was the solution (?) which was chosen a few years ago to deal with "priest-skill inflation" (and now even top priests aren't safe from shattering items).
