Our lead developer, Thanasis_dev, took a few of his precious minutes off his work, to write some details on Crafting Orders:
Crafting orders is a system that can allow crafting in Darkfall to become a profession rather than something that everyone has to do.
Also it will hopefully give access to higher tier armor and weapons to new players.
A player can place an order on any recipe of any skill requirement (even masteries that he does not have). The order is local only and stays on the crafting station it was placed on.
When an order is placed, the required materials are removed from the players backpack. The orders can be removed if the player changes his mind and the materials will be returned to his backpack.
A player with the appropriate skill level can fulfill orders for any recipes that have been placed on a crafting station.
Orders are anonymous and are processed in the order they were placed(first come - first served).
Crafting an order will provide a player with the same amount of skillup and prowess as if crafting the same item for themselves.
The crafted item or the returned materials(if the crafting failed) are placed on the station.
The player that placed the orders can at any time access the station and retrieve the resulting items and materials to his backpack.
Clan crafting station bonuses will work for crafting orders as well. If a clan crafting station is destroyed or lost the orders are not lost.
Next time a player can access the station, he will be able to retrieve his orders.
