That would be great.
Flawless pre-crafts are a total crapfest all by themselves.
Flawless pre-crafts + mythic skill requirements are pretty much uncraftable.
The general rule of these packs is if there's one with a great pre-craft that can sell for a decent amount those become "money maker" blueprints.
No one buys these packs for the skills, they're ridiculous to craft and generally offer very little vs. lower level items with lower pre-crafts.
There's a list a mile long of just about useless package items no one even cares about. Some of us completionists buy the packs because we're disturbed but honestly I've gotten easily 10x as many useless blueprints from these packs than useful ones.
Giving up a skill on a lower level BP (25-40 maybe) at mythical would already be awful with a reasonable pre-craft.
Legendary is bad but doable, I can see having legendary requirements on these higher level items, it makes them not easy to get the skill.
Here's an example of an item to look at:
Mystic Vest (lol)
Set aside the fact that it's the exact same "vest" that Professor Charles is wearing, but he couldn't wear it because it's a leather vest that looks like cloth robes and he's a cloth wearer but think about the requirements:
2 Great White Crow (Becomes 1 in time)
The White Crow by itself has a pre-craft of 1 Flawless Plated Leather.
This means you have to craft plated leather by the ton to get white crows, then craft those to get great quality to make the Mystic Vest.
Have you seen the fuse time on a level 49 item?
This item requires Mythic to get skill, most people will never craft this.
Especially when Mythic fusion only has a 63% success rate which results in more failures than you can imagine.
Now this is an item with a pretty good skill but there are items with pre-crafts like this just to get something like Energetic I, which you can get off a crazy low level item. The fact is it's simply not worth the trouble to craft an item like this. Maybe if you're dead bored and already have everything you could ever want but for 99.99% of us this item is worthless.
Perspective: It took me 2 months to successfully craft a mythic Jack's Brew and that was with 2 great pre-crafts that I could craft the items in a upgrades slot easy. IMO for 1 item that was insane, I just had no choice, but I'd never do it again. Players don't want items that crafting just one of them is their game goal for the next 3-4 months.
All this considered there are many items with pre-crafts worse than this vest. As someone who's been crafting Jorou's Crowns for the last week and been stuck gemming every epic proc to upgrade just so I can get anywhere on a level 38 item with a pre-craft that's not so bad all I can say is I don't want to pay for items that make this look like an easy craft.
