This was just posted tonight over at the Istaria forums -- the first look at the T2 (level 21-40) revamp that will be a part of the Winter 2009 Content Release for Istaria. To see the Developer's Preview, visit here! 

Sounds like a lot of great new content is coming our way!

Based on the past few days of playing Istaria and reading forums, I agree that the upcoming expansion/patch looks great.
I recommend for all to check the dev's preview

Will there be any development to make combat oriented players more interested? My hub and his friends liked the multiclassing of adventure schools very much, but not the leveling process because the loot from kills are not good for that kind of players, and the total dependency on craft quit their game.  My girlfriends and I  too since I like to play with my hub.  I'm more a crafter but I can see his point.  We have been playing for 3 months but now I can see the guys are really unhappy.

It seems to me that most of these updates are aimed towards the combat/adventurer. Taken from their announcement:

Second, quests. This update contains more quests than the Dralnok's Doom Update (almost 200 in all!) including five distinct storylines (each with five or more quests) that introduce new enemies to the Peninsula, as well as bringing back old ones and tying them together into storylines that we hope you will enjoy.

In addition to the core storylines for the peninsula, there are also four school/race specific storylines - one for Healing schools, for Mage schools, for Warrior schools, and one for Dragons. These storylines are meant to replace the old quests that were given out by trainers every 10 levels and give an expanding story that ties directly into the world and complements the core storylines for the Update.

Finally, mini dungeons. With this Content Update there will be two mini-dungeons as we are calling them. These are small (compared to Dralnok's Doom) but we hope will still provide a fun experience for players. Both dungeons will contain sights never-before-seen in Istaria including an entirely new monster race that we previewed for you briefly back in July.

I don't play Istaria, only played for a little while, but I personally like the IDEA of a crafting-centric game. Combat-centric MMOs are everywhere and their communities are not the kind I like being a part of.

 

It just stinks that I can't appreciate Istaria. It's the only game that I like, in theory, but the execution of the idea was just too clumsy for me.

 

So if making it more combat-focused saves the game, I'm all for it. I'm just going to wait until a game LIKE Istaria comes out, but with a 2009-2010 level of polish.
