Its unclear whether they will do the changes to crafting as of yet but if you have yet to max out your crafting it would be a smart idea to do this now just in-case this update brings the changes for crafting and the removal of the crafting quests. Crafting will be difficult in the future and the rewards from crafting will be much more with the new runes as well as the new specialty crafting system they add. Leveling it will be hard again because of the new crafting time point system. Be sure to save those Idyallic leaves and other things so you can make all the things you need in the future!
