"Crafters in Pantheon will be able to customize the stats (and the appearances) of items that they make.
There will be some limitations. The system won't be completely free-form, but you will have a wide variety of options available. The customizations you can choose from while creating items will depend on several factors, including (but not limited to) your skill and level of advancement within your profession, the facilities and tools you are using, and most importantly the ingredients or materials that you use. You'll find that some types of customization, like attribute bonuses, are relatively easy to access. More exotic bonuses or special effects will be both rare and challenging to apply to items. And yes, before you ask, customization applies to consumable items as well as finished items."
For those that don't know, Nephele has been a Pantheon content creator and crafting advocate for a while prior to recently being hired on as crafting designer. His biggest influence for crafting is SWG. Now we won't get anything that complex but complexity and meaningful crafting is the goal. In one of the PantheonPlus streams he does mention aiming for something in between SWG and Vanguard.
