The Age of Conan site has been updated with the February Monthly Update. As expected, this month’s letter details the changes coming to the crafting system in Age of Conan.
The first thing to stress here is that this process hasn’t been approached as tweaking or improving the existing system. This is a totally new system. When we sat down and looked at the system and how we could add depth and improve engagement, it became clear that it was better to start over. So rather than try and shoe-horn what we had into something a little more useable, we decided to bite the proverbial bullet and start over. This meant that we would not be restricted by the limitations of the original system, and that we were free to try to create something with a lot more freedom for you guys to experiment with.
