The Curse team at PAX got a chance to ask some questions at the Rift: Planes of Telara booth this weekend. We aren’t sure who they talked to, but we assume the questions were answered by the Trion staff at the booths. Here are a few answers that stood out.
Q: Can you tell us anything about the crafting system right now?
A: Sure! The crafting system is actually fully available at PAX right now. You can have up to 3 crafting skills and we have various forms of harvisting, so you can take 2 harvesting, one production skills, or one harvesting and two productions, it’s really up to how you want to do it. You can even make all harvesting, or all production. We have all your classes like outfitters who make leather and cloth gear, mining, butchers, scavengers, artificers, runecrafters, we have loads.
Q: And will lots of the end game gear come from crafting?
A: A good amount of it will. We want to make sure that end-game crafters are important.
PVP vs. PVE Gearsets:
Q: Will there be specific PvE and PvP gearsets? Or will there just be one type?
A: They will be somewhat interchangable. There is obviously some gear that’s better for PvP and some gear that’s better for PvE. It’s going to be up to personal taste. It’s more like our class system will allow you to choose a PvP build because it’s pretty dependant on how you do your builds. You can definitely get a major difference between a character who’s built for PvP and a character who’s built for PvE. It’s really more dependent on your class build and how you spec your souls. We’re finding that people make very unique and imaginative soul combinations to do PvP.
