Dev Diaries: Episode 1 – Mining & Smithing Rework

Earlier this year, we postponed the Mining and Smithing skill rework, in response to your feedback. It was clear that we needed to rethink our approach, and to include you from the very start.

Enter Dev Diaries – a new video series designed to involve you in the development process at the earliest possible stage, and get your feedback throughout.

Episode 1 sees Mod Osborne and Mod Jack discussing our aims for the rework, as well as some options on how we can make the skills more lucrative.

Every fortnight we'll be releasing a new Dev Diary, focusing on a different aspect of the update – tiers, items, skill mastery, and much more.

You'll learn about why we make the decisions that we do, and see first-hand the work that goes into an update of this scale.

In turn, you'll help shape the skills with your ideas, and each week we'll be picking up and debating our favourite ideas and feedback from the previous Dev Diary.

Head to our forums, Reddit, and use the hashtag #DevDiaries on Twitter to share your thoughts and join the conversation for episode 1.

So watch on, enjoy, and together we'll make a Mining and Smithing rework that we can all be proud of.
