EB World put up an interview with Mythic President Mark Jacobs. Here's an excerpt of what he had to say: I think our trade skill system is far more robust than anything out there. It offers the opportunity for a player to make money simply being a crafter; they donít have to fight. You do not have to kill one single monster in order to have success as a merchant. We thought that would be very attractive to players who enjoy trade skills as something to do in a spare moment, to help sharpen a sword or repair armor, but also for the people who really just like crafting and socializing. Thatís one of the things we have done better. Read the whole interview at this link.
