Yeah… The way the Carpentry crafting system was updated for ML made the “Wood Selection” the real gatekeeper on whether you could or couldn’t craft something with a special type of log. For ore, it’s much simpler, you just use the ore on a forge; it circumvents the crafting system completely. Creating old boards with plain wood used the crafting system, but required zero skill in Carpentry – this is the problem. One solution would be letting players choose whatever wood they wanted, and then if they chose a carpentry item to craft (not boards) and didn’t have GM Carpentry, it would fail to craft if it wasn’t plain wood. -Draconi -- Will you ever allow multiple players to invoke Honor on a single monster, like Champs and Peerless? Most likely not. Although, it’d be interesting to provide much greater benefit for challenging a Champ or Peerless one-on-one, you brave soul you! -Draconi -- When will the glass daggers, received from Andrew, come into play? Publish 58. Along with their darker cousins. When will we be able to use the different threads to enhance our Cloaks of Corruption? Publish 59. How many of each of the threads will be required to enhance the Cloak of Corruption? Not too many -Draconi -- Will the enchanted apples and faction bandaids be adjusted in the next publish? Yes, Sakkarah has already taken care of these: bandaids will not stack with the apples. -Draconi -- Will dropping party at the beginning of a peerless boss fight be any different than dropping it at the end before he dies as far as how much loot you could get? No. -Draconi -- Will Tinkers ever get some love? Are there plans for a Tinker Runic Kit in the near future? I think we’re all in agreement that providing more types of Runic Kits would be awesome. Always room for more rewards in Stygian Abyss! -Draconi -- Announcements: Player events and fansite news has moved to the Community Spotlight. You can find that here.
