There's not much else to post here, but since it's a news post, I may as well let you guys in on a bit of the progress that's been made in the past 3 days.
The recipe rework is getting closer to completion, and we may only be 1 week away from releasing it. Be ready to start grinding for those recipes once again, as they are extremely worthwhile and useful in fights now! However, from here on they will only be usable in the Quests world so as to prevent their use and abuse in pvp.
The item tier rework is also making quick progress, but I remain on my 1 month estimate for how long it'll take to release. Nothing much else to say here!
Finally, something Matt did not mention about boss drops: I am working on two things to help you players swallow the harsh change. For one, I am working on a concept that will allow ALL players who participated in the boss battle to be able to receive rewards, even if they die. For another, I'm working on reworking boss drops to be more exciting and interactive through the form of boss chests. Bosses have a high chance of dropping chests per-player, and you can open them for special items and gold to replace their spot in the redoable quests. In general, the drop rates of items will be higher than they are currently.
