What are the plans for crafting in Pantheon?
Crafting is an important part of Pantheon. A big emphasis is on cooperation between adventurers and crafters. There exists a symbiotic relationship, not competition — both adventurers and crafters will need each other. With as many horizontal content paths as we have, you will want to seek crafters for those very specific situations. Instead of having to farm a specific piece of gear, it might be more beneficial to find a crafter with that recipe.
Some items drop when you kill a mob, while others are harvestable, and others are crafted. Other than a few class-specific rewards, such as epic quest items, many items will be craftable. Crafting also goes hand-in-hand with dropped items by allowing players to customize their gear. Players can often bring items to a crafter to customize and tailor them to their specific needs.
