It is going to take time for there to be significant change/improvement. There's only one me, and I am still learning all the technical aspects of things. I also don't work in a vacuum, and others on the team have say with regards to itemization, progression, etc. That having been said, I'm trying to chip away at things as I can, which is why you started seeing tradeskill stuff showing up starting with the last GU (6 new red shiny collections, Forgotten Furniture books). The dev team has been hugely supportive of my efforts, and we hope to turn things around for you. Know that I AM listening, I AM trying to give tradeskills the love that it deserves, but that it WILL take time. I'll respond when I can, but realize that the next few weeks, especially, will be crazed as I'm running around like a madwoman trying to cram as much crafting love into the expansion as possible.
