Over my lunch hour I decided to check out our new crafting system. I broke down 40-50 ish items. Made a few shards, and crafted a few (okay 2) items. I made a lesser bane weapon, and a -5% SPF ring.
In less then an hour I was able to figure out the basics. I see a lot of possible usefulness here. Even for newer characters. But I didn’t look at any minimum levels. That could be a deal breaker. Real fast let me “build” some sample items.
X wraps of lesser Ooze bane lvl 4 (not sure what the min level would be…)
Any low level Invulnerability is handy
I would love a low level Life Shield item I can use when I am TRing, say a ring
And how great would it be to load up on guards?
Looks like I could make a two handed Song blade for my bard life…
Also the idea that I could “level up” a piece of gear that I have carried along with me for flavor or looks. I know there are a lot of armor I love and lots I hate. I could make a style I like be +2 at low level and level that set of armor up with me would be huge.
I don’t know. I have the feeling that we have a fine start. But I would have rather had something a lot closer to pencil and paper.
