Everyone has his or her favorite pet system in MMOs, and for an elite few, that system is crafting. Being able to take raw materials and shape incredibly useful works of art has an intriguing appeal. So for those who have been waiting impatiently for Pantheon to say something — anything — about its crafting system, now you’ve been tossed a bone.
The lead crafting dev, Nephele, posted a sneak peek of Pantheon’s crafting system on the forums with a promise of more information to come in the new year. “Crafters in Pantheon will be able to customize the stats (and the appearances) of items that they make,” he revealed. “There will be some limitations. The system won’t be completely free-form, but you will have a wide variety of options available.”
Nephele said that the crafting team is working on getting the foundation for the system in place so that it can be built properly from the ground-up. Once it’s ready to be shown off, expect to see the crafting fully revealed on a livestream. “It’s the sort of thing that really needs to be shown rather than just talked about,” he said.
