Anyone know if there are any signs of craft skills or prestige class's in the future? I think the ability to craft/enchant items is something that is missing from DDO, and would help to round it out.

Crafting iis due sometime this fall.

I personally don't think they will incorporate Craft "skills" per se but I hope they will implement Crafting of magic items as close to PnP as possible

Prestige Classes ... no definate word yet. They should be coming but not til after Druid and Monk

It is on their plate of things to do.
I can't remember exactly where it is in the forums but if I remember right
it goes a bit like...

maybe expansion to 16
monk + half orc
maybe druid
crafting

in order of when we can expect to see things.. but again thats just the off the cuff response.

in short its coming but when, noone knows :-)
and prestige classes are already in the game.. warchanter(insert sarcasm)

THose most definately are not Prestige Classes... in fact most of those bonuses replicate feats of one sort or another... the Enhancment system does not replace true prestige classes

actually both warchanter and virtuoso are both, in fact, 3.5 PnP prestige classes. I know I have played the first and DM'ed the latter.

That is what the sarcasm was for.. they aren't fully fleshed out prestige classes, because you do not get BaB, save, hp, and skill increases, but you get similar abilities. i.e. the special stuff :D

If you don't go to a trainer and take it as a class when you level, then it isn't a Prestige Class. I don't care what the name of the enhancment line is.

But, based on the enhancement lines, I wouldn't hold your breath waiting for Prestige Classes, which makes me a sad, sad person.

It does seem like Turbine is trying to create the prestige classes through the enhancement system. It is sort of the easy way out because it obviously takes less programming hours and they can shoot out enhancements faster than they could an entire prestige class.

However, if this is how Turbine is implementing prestige classes I think it is a mistake. A huge mistake. The game would be a lot more interesting and have a lot more possibilities if they implemented full prestige classes. A few specialized enhancement paths just don't cut it.

So DDO has sort of artificial prestige classes...sort of.

Personally i would like to see all the collectable turn into crafting items. Since most players dont pick these items up it might give renewed value to them. Maybe If you need x item that produce a flame or flaming burst effect you hit the collectable items in the burning city or the mine in the desert for the item to craft with
