The latest TCoS Developer Journal is part of the Game Design series - called Quest Chains & Side Stories and is written by Vincent Leeuw.
Vincent goes into detail about creating a vast number of quests, including Quest Chains and Side Stories that involve the High Houses and the Enclave of the Five Sacrifices. He also provides a glimpse into the tools used to create this quest, by showing off an image of the quest editor (seen below).
That's not the only activity over at the Spellborn forums, though! There's a brand-new Q&A covering Skills, Combos and Bodyslots as well.
Q: Will we see which spells are starters/finisher? Does it say in the spell tooltip if the spell is Combo Starter/Linker/Finisher etc?
A: An icon in the spellbook indicates the combo type, the effect is listed in the tooltip. Check the screenshots
Q: It said that at level 50 characters could purchase the skills of the other archetypes. How will this work and how many of those skills can be purchased?
A: As you can read in the Skill trainer journal, they can’t simply be bought, the original designer/master skill trainer of the skill needs to be found. Not all skill trainers live on the shards that are in release.
Q: How many bodyslots will one receive and how many can be visible on any given time (on the blood warrior and the runemage for example)?
A: It’s different per subclass, ranging from 10 to 15 bodyslot items per subclass. Only 5 can be equipped in the bodyslot-bar at any time, though. Tattoo’s and Scars show on torso, arms and head.
