Unfortunately the tradeskill quest timeline for Planes of Prophecy was not coming together in a way that would make it fun and engaging, so we have decided to push it back until after launch. While this is disappointing to us all, we believe that delivering a rich and engaging tradeskill quest timeline is more important than delivering what would be a sub-par experience on the expansion launch date. Utilizing the extra time granted by pushing the tradeskill timeline back will allow us to deliver a more fully featured tradeskill experience for us all to enjoy. The tradeskill timeline will be our top priority once the rest of the expansion content and systems have been locked in.<br /> <br />The base expansion will still have 10 new tradeskill levels complete with recipes, writs, and several top tier tradeskilled items integrated into the adventuring content. This push only affects the tradeskill quest timeline.

Does this mean the beta bonus for the crafting timeline is null and void now?

I would surmise you can still get to 110 using level 100 writs, recipes and materials. You just won't have level 101-110 recipes and quests. Certainly this is unappealing but the reward may justify the effort.

The beta bonus for tradeskill testing, as shown in the achievements section, will be for leveling to 110, and harvesting each of the new rares. The posted beta patch notes from yesterday warn that the TS buffer, Oliver, got blown up. They're rebuilding him. Once he's in place, I'd assume he'll have recipes for us to test. <img src="/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" alt="BigGrin" />

Ok i have a question, Since the tradeskill quest line will not be added to beta, is there any way that the work order writs can have the experience adjusted to be able to actually level a crafter and test out the recipes? as it stands it will take forever to lvl up from them as it is the only real way to level right now. I for one would like to actually put time into test the content and not just crafting.

Since the primary way to level was going to be thru the Tradeskill Questing, and that isn't going to be in game, the rate of XP needs to come WAY up if we are going to be able to get to 110 in any reasonable amount of time. Putting the components needed into Oliver, would be helpful too, this is beta after all <img src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" alt="Smile" />

The level 100 writ xp was adjusted Friday afternoon to allow folks to level. This is an interim solution. There is some TS content still incoming, and the writs will be changing as well, but Caith got stuff in place so folks could start leveling and testing recipes.

FYI --- Just harvested a "cnidcara hide" which is described as a rare harvest. <br />It is listed in the tradeskill achievement.<br /><br />However, it does not have sparkly dots as part of its icon image.

It is still where it has been all along. Reach level 110 tradeskiller and harvest 1 of each rare.<br /> <br />Achievements > Beta > Planes of Prophecy > Planes of Prophecy: Beta Tradeskiller (Crafting)
