playing this game since years, one thing which makes the game for many friends and me less enjoyable is how to deal with the amount of surveys you gain by doing daily crafting writs on several characters. Instead of being able to collect the amount of several crafting surveys stacked up at once at a location, you need to run to the location, pick all, run away again (sometimes very far) and come back to pick the next survey. This is taking ages of time and could simply be improved by not stacking the surveys only, but also the loot (e.a. you would gain with 10x Blacksmithing Survey Shadowfen I = 6x (6 ores) 10x (surveys) x loot each).
I understand as well that going to the location and so should take some time to make it rewarding, but this endless back-and-forth if you have 30+ maps of the same single location is exhausting. Surely you could do all surveys more regular, but that would take up even more time! If you e.a. do daily craft writs on 18 characters then you´ll spend whole day with crafting and not really playing the game.
As well this could help to lower material prices (normal ones as gold tempers) a bit, who knows.
What are your thoughts? Would you support such a change or a similar one making a big QoL improvement on surveys? How important do you feel is it- if you compare that only a small change would be needed to make it work?
