Do you think that they should be buffed in any way?

    If you have extra points to spend and bank space (craft bag space) to store, they add up quickly.

    There should be proper Alchemy and JC hirelings too. (Shadowy Supplier is kind of a cheesy workaround and doesn't supply all kinds of mats.)

    Regarding Buff, the 12 hour timer is still clunky design. It should be 10 hours between, with a max of two deliveries every calendar day.

    I concur with @Merlin13KAGL on the timer. Hirelings are the only thing I can think of (other than the dedicated reset time of daily quests) that falls on a 24-hour timer. Level 1/2 should be a 20-hour reset, and Level 3 should be the 10-hour reset like suggested.

    That said, I have hirelings unlocked on all my alts, but only managed to free up the skill points on 2 characters so far to put 3/3 in all of them.

    If I had to choose only one hireling to put 2-3/3 it would be Provisioning as that's the only reliable way to get frost mirriam and bervez juice. Plus, the quantity of provisioning mats supplied is very nice too.

    I have hirelings, just curious if people think they should give more materials or not. It does add up, just trying to gather feedback!

    At some point every character has extra skill points. Not investing at that point in hirelings is dumb. Especially ignoring the Provisioning Hireling.

    And, yes the timer needs to be 10/20 hours
    Enjoy the game, life is what you really want to be worried about.

    Of course they are. There is no downside other than the opportunity cost. Obviously, if you are low on skill points and would have to sacrifice needed combat skills, then don't do it. However, if it won't affect your combat skills and the points are just sitting there anyway, why not? You could also say the same of the snakeblood passive I guess, but that has more issues including the fact that nobody uses potions that have negative effects in them anyway.

    I voted other, as a major reason I have them is for the story that goes with each one. The mail that accompanies the material is worth it, especially as you only need one point per craft on one character.

    Just about, but I think it's marginal, unless you have lots of alts, all with them.

    Game revolves far too much around switching from one alt to another, all day...

    I find that tiresome, so I don't do it.

    The stories are nice, until they end.

    This thread served as a good reminder that I still don't have hirelings on my alt characters, and I should, so thank you. I may need to grind out a few more skill points on each of them, but that should be easy to do with the weekend ahead of me.

    Probably not worth grabbing right away unless you're building a crafter, but once you have extra skill points it's free supplies, so...no brainer. I've got provisioning ingredients coming out of my ears (even bervez juice and frost miriam) with just one hireling.
    I do wish the equipment hirelings provided a LITTLE bit more at higher levels, since I go through so many mats doing those writs. I'd actually love an extra style mat at rank 3.

    Definitely. There are people who swear by daily writs as a way to make money, but hirelings allow you to do that with zero effort.

    I have most hirelings on 15 characters. Some aren't leveled enough for provisioning or enchanting hirelings. If I decide to start leveling one of the lower level alts, I'll respec to get temporarily get crafting skill points back.

    Only if you pay for subscription to get crafting bag is it worth spending the skill points into it otherwise no not worth it

    There are enough skill points available in the game so i dont see any reason why your crafter shouldnt put any points into this + plus you might get lucky and get some free gold mats. So is it worth a few skill points? Yes.

    Yes, I have hirelings on all chars, PvE or PvP. Max level means higher chances of getting gold mats.

    Yes, but one major change I would make is instead of getting your mail by logging on/off each character, you just receive it in bulk. Would reduce a lot of zone time.
