Crafters will have other unique abilities, such as being able to add their own colors or patterns to the equipment they make.
If crafters can design semi-customized armor sets with specific patterns or color combinations, do you think there will be a way to "preview" equipment before purchasing it? For example, if you are browsing through a weaver's bazaar, I could imagine an option to "try on" a custom dyed robe to see what it actually looks like on your character. Obviously the preview would be purely cosmetic with no +stat bonuses and would only last a few seconds before asking you to confirm or deny the purchase.
With the increased levels of customization I don't think tiny icons alone are going to cut it this time around.
