Dev Tracker For The Week Of 5/22/11

This week the Dev Tracker picks up talk about mounts and various aspects involving the in-game economy. Looks like we’ll also be seeing some adjustments to dyeing down the road as well! That’s sure to make everyone’s inventories a great deal happier.

We’re looking for volunteers to do a weekly recap of the posts that appear up on the Dev Tracker (AKA Dev Tracker posts). We’re also looking for someone with some experience in audio. Our wish is to have a quick, weekly news recap (Topics and Dev Tracker) to have played on Gamer Escape Radio. If you are interested in volunteering please throw an email to [email protected] listing any experience you have with the topics mentioned above.

Check out all of the posts after the jump!

Let Me Save Stat Profiles so I can Effectively Play Both my Melee and Mage Classes

Hey everyone, I know you’re all excited to see how allocating stats will change in the future! While we can’t give away too many specific details, we did confirm with the team that on class rank up the process of allocating points will still be controlled by the player.


DevTalk: GIL SINKS! Ideas to Stabalize the Economy and Curb Inflation

Fret not, as the dev. team is well aware of the large, gil-laden purses of the populace. The team knows about the abundance of coinage that fills the markets, and also about the storages filled to the brim with currency! The team knows that inflation is a serious issue if left unchecked and you can bet that they have plans in place to address this in the future.


Market Wards, enough is enough

Rest assured that the team is in the process on stabilizing and improving the current retainer system. Something that I want everyone to keep in mind is that even if we simply changed the current system over to an auction house, that doesn’t mean it would solve all of our problems overnight. There are more things that would still need to be adjusted if that were to happen. As such we aren’t currently planning on switching over to an auction house system as of yet.


[dev1082] The (un)Official Mount System Thread

Hey, gang! Spoke with Yoshida about your lively discussion surrounding mounts. As I’m sure is a surprise to no one, there are a lot of varied opinions on personal mounts. We’ll be looking into, and evaluating, the most popular ones. That said, please continue to let us know what you want to see in the future!


Change the Dyeing Synthesis Recipes

We do know that there are many color dying materials that can take up the majority of your inventory and the dev. team is planning to improve the process of color dyeing. These changes alongside the adjustments to recipes should make your inventories very happy!
