Crafted items

Crafted items will be on par with best in slot items.[8]

We believe that every item that exists in the world should in some way reflect its creator. As such, there will be extreme versatility in our crafting system – giving crafters the ability to create unique items that represent their strengths and weaknesses.[13]

Crafting and World Bosses will be the main way to obtain high-level gear. There are some exceptions to this in the form of Legendary items (single server drops or discoveries), and other equipment that may drop wholesale, but we want Artisans and top tier raiding to produce the lion’s share of high level, high effectiveness equipment.[14]Sarah Flanagan

Skills and stats on gear

Crafters will be able to assign different skills/abilities and stats on gear.[15][16]

  • Master crafters will be able to influence several (but not all) stats on their crafted items.[15][17]
  • There will also be methods of moving stat blocks around but this won't necessarily be an easy task.[15]
  • All gear will be able to be assigned any stat.[15]

Crafters will be able to 'rejigger' stat blocks; and there will be a couple of other ways to move things around to create both the look and the stat block that you're looking for. It's not always going to be easy. There will be a lot of challenges involved with that. But the goal is to give you guys the option to customize your gear the way you want them to be.[15]Jeffrey Bard

Not all armor sets will be the cookie cutter kind of set. They will have the influences from the crafter available in it, if it's a crafted set.[16]Steven Sharif

Gear is broken down into Core Stats and Additional Stats.[18]

Item creation suite

An "item creation suite" that allows crafters to create unique appearances for items has been discussed as a future possibility.[19]
