    If you look hard enough between the lines, you'll see a date for when to expect Alpha.

    That or I am delirious and hallucinating from severe mental withdrawals. Either way was nice to read, keep it up.

    I was looking forward to the announcement of an Alpha date or even an estimation of it. I understand the process of not wanting to give us a date and breaking it but leaving people completely in the dark can be just as bad.

    As a crafter my hype just went into orbit... somewhere past the moon I think.

    Great to see this limit to crafting masteries.
    This was something I had in mind and planned on suggesting, for DFUW and DFO.
    I'm stoked to see it just added like that.

    I like the changes to the crafting mastery system. Every guild always had that crafter mule that could craft everything, now they're going to need multiple mules, or do away with the commi practice.

    Super hyped about alpha, I pray to allah for invite.

    It seems like BPG isn't far behind at all. Keep it up bros!

    I mean looking at the second sentence of the post isn't super between the lines but I get what you're saying. Either way I was hoping for a clear cut "this is when alpha will start".

    I suppose I will get used to the crafting system and wont have to grind it all myself. Although Im gonna be super pissed off when say my clans shipbuilder takes a break or stops playing. Also quick question staffs are weaponsmithing? Can we get three masteries I just dont fkn trust people not to leave the clan or the game and won't be supporting helping anybody else in my clan raise their mastery and dont want to have to travel all over the dmn world everytime I need something crafted.

    I wonder if the crafting specialization they mentioned months ago will allow you to learn more than two masteries or if it will be something entirely different.

    Nice update, I am happy with all the details that are coming out. Also had to look up up obfuscation so I knew what the guy was talking about. I still do not know but am happy it is done. =P

    Happens every time once they hit 100 mastery.

    That 'random' change to crafting masteries translates into something very special.

    It shows that you are truly working behind the scenes, looking at ways to improve things about the game.. Now, while that's obviously what you're doing and is standard practice.. it's just refreshing to actually see it, because we all know what it feels like to be kept in the dark by a dev company.
    All the while, we have the luxury of trying changes out and reverting them if we dont like them for whatever reason.

    If only Aventurine did what BPG has done since the beginning... Real reason I'm quoting you though is for the sig.

    I do worry about how useful some of these masteries will be. Cooking mastery for example will probably become a very underpicked mastery, unless the food made would somehow be of higher quality than the rest.

    On the other hand, the limiting to two masteries will probably create the need for more transactions and roles within a guild. In the end I think this will cause the gold to much more frequently change hands, as people really would need to trade a lot more to get the required items. Any gold that is circulated, and not stockpiled in millions, is a positive change to the game.

    Looking forward to hearing more about the alpha process, but after today I probably won't expect invites until May.

    Interested to know more about what Network Volunteer - Mippins said about "hosting solutions to make sure we found one that can provide a good combination of performance and stability throughout the world."
