How is the crafting?
Amongst other aspect of MMORPG, I enjoy the crafting part.

Is there crafting in this game?
Is the crafting available to every class?
Is the crafting in-depth?
Is crafting weapons, armor, misc, better then looted items?
Is there a auction house to sell crafted items to players?

Thx in advance for your reponses.

There is crafting but it isn't up to much. You can only craft one space set (Aegis) and there are no ground sets to craft. Gear gained from missions and the reputation system are far superior so there is little reason to craft anything except to support an new character. On the plus side most crafted gear is bound to the account, not to the character, so you can have a set for each tier and just pass it on.

Crafting will get a revamp (I believe the first stage of it will be late this year) so it may be worth getting up to level 50 and waiting for it if you enjoy the game itself.

Crafting is in quite poor shape in this game and in a dire need of an update/overhaul.

There are no crafting specializations, but different factions are able to craft their mirrored specialties(Klingons make disruptors at the start while Federation make phasers.. you eventually get access to all damage types by the end).

Crafted items are generally more expensive to create than other means of acquisition(meaning it isn't very profitable to put crafted stuff on the exchange - with a few exceptions) and you cannot craft the highest tier of equipment(Mark XII).

The only thing unique to crafting is the Aegis set, which is nice for a fresh level 50, but it is far outclassed by all the end game/reputation sets(which take more time to unlock, but are relatively similiar in terms of actual cost to acquire).

The only reason you will craft is for that thing you can not find or afford on the exchange to match the equipment load out you desire. The Jem'Hadar consumeables dont suck. Massive overhaul needed, has needed it from the very beginning of the games release.

Crafting? In this game? -To call it a giant 'meh', is the understatement of the year. It is really something you'll only do if you are bored. REALLY bored. Even then there are other boring stuff to do. -They'll eventually land you a title at least. -(albeit the titles themselves are just another silly undertaking). It is difficult to really say what is great about the game. It isn't bad, it still manages to pull me in, but I am still trying to define what it is that pulls me. Must be that I use this game as an alternative to playing solitaire, or something...

Foundry missions and grouping with fleet members to do certain missions, is still quite fun. PvP is only fun if you are a powergamer and have tweaked the ships load out to the Nth Degree, and then anyone who isnt a power gamer asplodes within seconds of a match starting.

Yes.
Yes.
I don't now what you mean, but probably not.
Nope, but crafted gear has unique stats.
Yes.

crafted gear has 'traits' not very special ones, and not unique by any means.
