Research is the beginning of changing how crafting works, with this system we can introduce new mechanics to crafting that will change both how you level in a craft and introduce more advanced concepts to crafting. Research works by creating blank schematics with scribing, using the schematic on an item to create a unique schematic based on the stats and characteristics of the target item. The schematic can then be queued in the research tab (access it via the paperdoll), the research then awards the player experience based on the schematic's stats. Using a schematic on an item will consume the item. Dye Crafting can only be leveled through research, this means that players must start with basic dyes and research to get to the more advanced dyes. This thread is specifically for the research system and related crafting changes, other threads will be setup for the other parts of the patch. Use this thread to leave feedback or discuss the Research system.
