I just watched the twitch stream on crafting. It looks like a LOT of thought has gone into this. However, I can swear on my Eighth Coldain Prayer Shawl (if I can find it where I packed my EQ stuff) that I won't be crafting in the Realm, due to the cost involved. Really, I doubt that more than 5 or 6 people have the gold and items it'll cost in order to make Master gear.
I want to hear from others. Are you excited? Do you think you'll be crafting? Are you already singing "I've Got a Pocket Full of Mabonite?"
