    So Jeremy Wood will be taking a few questions next week based on this weeks PR release about Wildstars economy.

    Lets get a few questions together for him from all of us at Wildstar-Central.

    I'll get the ball rollin...
    Does this mean there will be quest based challenges that will provide rewards for gear customization?

    Sounds like a yes.... From today's Uplink Analysis on Tradeskills.

    Will there be bind-on-pickup items or can everything be freely traded?

    How will you make crafted items viable for the economy in the elder game?

    Can you give me a beta invite? No? Who can give me a beta invite?

    Will professions benefit your path choice? If so, how is that done without forcing certain professions onto classes.
    I.E. For awhile there raiding in WoW meant your best professions for min/maxing were JC and BS. (I know they fixed it later on)

    Will selling your wares via auction house give players experience points? That is, will you be able to level a character by selling items to other players?

    How will Wildstar curb the necessity of mules/bank alts?

    Will the crafting system actually be viable? I want to know if I, as a crafter, can make better items than can be looted...

    Soooo.... We have endgame crafting and viability, accessories, professions and how they work, viable alternative leveling paths, bop vs free trade, and beta invites. ;)
    What else along the lines of economy?

    Are the copper coin drops in the demo a placeholder?

    Can we assume the extensive (item) customization applies to the character creation as well?

    I really hope that's a placeholder too. C'mon Carbine no copper, silver, gold for my sci-fantasy game please. :eek:

    Will there be profession only abilities: i.e. enchant own earings or socket own bracer, or +5 strength for a blacksmith and +5 intelligence for a scholar.

    Will there be more to levelling up say Blacksmithing other than one weapon and 2 pieces of armour that will get replaced on your first raid anyway.

    Will crafting be worth doing WHILE you level, as apposed to just grinding it from 1-500 once you've hit cap, that seems the easiest and most logical way in many mmo's.

    Will there be any ability to gather or craft while offline. I.E a harvester or a companion doing stuff.

    Will I be able to fish while waiting for my group to catch me up? Sorry , but I've always loved doing that :)

    Will there be things that can only be made once every few days? *assumes fetal position while muttering Truegold over and over)

    I know theres more but I can't think of it...

    How many crafting professions can we have at a time?

    When you decide to switch profession will your progress in the profession be deleted or will it be saved if you wanted to go back to it later?

    So I just found this....

    Source: http://www.mpog.com/gamelist.cfm/game/632/view/forums/post/5170328#5170328

    I know I mentioned the other day that WS would have both types of gameplay... This seems to confirm it.
    Very cool is all I can say. :)

    I still wonder how they gonna balance that or how that works. In my experience in target games you have stats like Hit, while in FFS games you have to aim to hit. I don't see that working together?

    I know that in some games with FFS where you aim on your target matters. In Tera there is no penalty for where you aim on your target.

    My guess is they will do away with a stat like hit and go to a normalized hit or miss calculator, or even do away with missing altogether.

    I can see your point... FFS might lead to an imbalance due to how much you move around vs tab targeting.

    Bottom line is it's going to have to be something we haven't seen before, some type of hybrid between the two styles.
    Hopefully they will get it right.

    Since there seem to be non-economy questions as well:

    Will a person be able to post a quest asking for materials so it can be fulfilled by someone online at the time? This request should be able to be seen on your handy-dandy pocket transmitter/receiver and post an alert flag when a new message comes in.

    Will all trade skills be viable to all roles (tank/healer/dps) for min/maxing stats or will some be more appropriate depending on your role (Ala WoW)?
