Subject: Crafting Explanation
Looks like Ten Ton Hammer has gotten a new article on how crafting is going to be working on the game at the moment. A few Fridays ago I was lucky enough to receive my beta invite to Vanguard Saga of Heroes. After many minutes of wondering if this was a hoax or some cruel joke it dawned on me that at long last I had actually gotten into beta. I immediately registered the key and began the download. While downloading I became quite afraid that Vanguard would not live up to my hopes and that maybe all the angry posters claiming beta leaks were right. By the time the download was finished it I was quite scared to start the game. It was also getting late and almost time for me to go to sleep. I thought for all of about 5 seconds about going to sleep and starting on Saturday. Nervously, I made a character and entered the world with the intention of doing some crafting tonight and then adventuring the next day.
Let me start by saying the critics were very wrong. Vanguard is much more than I could ever have hoped. It's an amazing game. It's really hard to compare it to anything else because it's so huge, complex and has such an epic feeling to it. Most games can't compare to Vanguard. Sigil is actually building a living breathing world while most MMOGs are building small amusement parks,
The crafting in Vanguard is very good; much better than I could have hoped for. It's easy to get started in crafting, but at the same time it is complicated. I have been in beta a few weeks now and I still feel I know very little about crafting. But my lack of knowledge does not stop me from crafting (although I suspect it stops me crafting as well as I should). But the little I do know, I have been allowed to tell you. Just be aware that I am still a noob and my information is far from complete.

Aside from the crafting part in that quote, the way he explains Vanguard gives me a refreshing feeling. I hope it's going to be good.
