The Crafting Sanctuary panels are up on Youtube now, click through for the links and here’s a few quick notes of interest from the panel as a primer…

    • 18 levels of armor go through the difficulty levels now. No more building up to plate in normal just to go back to leather in nightmare
    • Different forms of treasure chests now with common ones to rare which should yield better loot
    • Different levelsof armor dyes, some colours will be rarer than others and can only be applied once.
    • Shows off Bastion Keep and the design process behind this siege level.

    Another bit of news from an interview with Kevin Martens is you now only gain skill points every even level. It was said on Friday that you gained a trait point every odd level so fairly big change here. Direct quote about skill point gain:

    “Every Character build has 7 skill slots. And as they get skill points, which is every even level – currently, they can spend up to 5 points in every given skill slot, and you can have up to 7 skills. There’s ways in the game to deepen that, so you can have fewer skills that are deeper.”
