Artisans and Multiplayer As great as the artisan system works, the only flaw is that I don't see how it's going to work in multiplayer. There are 4 different "levels", if I remember correctly. So far the max amount of players is 4. They also mentioned that there will be 5 different artisans. How, then, is that going to work out? They said that the artisans "follow" you around, and so you would have your individual blacksmith or mystic or whatever. So, in theory, it's possible to have 20 different artisans in a town. Is that not a little ridiculous? Okay, so maybe you could solve the problem, or maybe I'm wrong, and the artisan can be shared by the other players, so there's only 5 artisans and they just "follow" everyone. However, we still have the different "levels" of mastery. It was shown in Jay's video that the graphics for the artisan's work area will change as they "level up." So then how would they deal with that? That means that if people have a different level of mastery on their artisan then it's possible to have yet again 20 artisans. To me, that sounds a bit ridiculous. Anyhow, how exactly is that going to be dealt with. Will there be an area for artisans in every town? Will we see 4 of every artisan in town? Do you think they will change the system? The most logical thing I can think of is to simply omit the fact that the graphics change for each "level." Then everyone can just share the artisans (but of course their recipes will remain specific to them).
