    Question How will the crafting be?

    Will the crafting function like Vanguard:Saga of heroes or like WoW and Aion.

    I prefer Vanguard's crafting, it's much more fun and you can spend alot of time with it and you must be active while crafting, it's not like in WoW or Aion where you can set it on 100 and it craft it for you.

    From what I've seen in screenshots and video snippets, the crafting looks just like WoW's crafting.

    HOWEVER.

    As I understand it, it's currently being revamped, so we don't really know.

    Ah good that they revamp it to something more interesting. I would love if they make it so it takes up as much time as adventuring and interesting as combat and Rifts.

    Love the thinh Vanguard did with:

    Adventuring
    Crafting
    Diplomacy

    You had fun with all three and it wasn't all about fighting monsters. I really hope Rift can take something from that.

    That might explain the little info we have received about the crafting system. It has been pretty quiet about it so far imo.

    I hope its a more interactive system like Vanguard or EQ2 than a simple insert mats and you have a finished item system like WoW......I am hoping for a more complex system where you actually have to get recipes off of monsters or other methods than a trainer handing them all to you.

    Honestly, I would expect it to be more similar to WoW's in the actual mechanic they use...

    I think they said that they want it to be simple enough that casual crafters can do it, but also with an added layer of complexity for people who want to dive a little deeper. The recent Gamer Day videos also mentioned some sort of augmentation system that you can use to make your crafted stuff different from everyone else's. That could change though - they weren't supposed to show any crafting at all.

    It's very much in flux from what I understand, so if you have a suggestion, posting it wouldn't hurt. Linolea also made an excellent suggestion for them to use crafting soul trees that I happen to like.

    All of the good recipies in WoW were obtained via monsters dropping them, and then later raid bosses that only had a small chance to drop 1 of 3 epic recipies.

    Crafting soul trees? That sounds amazing, can I get a link to the thread for everyone to see?

    Here's the link to it: http://forums.riftgame.com/showthrea...ing-Soul-Trees

    In the first post, there's a link to another thread in which people discussed what they'd like to see from a crafting system. There were a lot of good suggestions, if I'm thinking of the right thread.
