    Caught it live (slightly delayed). Was great interview.

    One thing I heard during the stream that Nephele was worried about was penalizing players who worked for weeks to craft something and have it fail. I would think that if pieces you used were built from underlying components - if there were a failure of the final piece or close to it, you may only have to re-craft some of the base components rather than everything.

    Regarding the idea of some rare items being returned on failure - I think it would be neat to have an item flag like "indestructible" or something (think of item tags in EQ like Lore, No-drop etc). Indestructible items would be returned if a combine failed. It would also be easy for players to know which items would be returned and which wouldn't be.

    Not sure who those guys were, but I thought that was a well done interview.  Hopefully, you do some more with that team, the questions and interjections were good and the sound and tone of their voices was solid.
