Ignoring Warlords onwards, recipes can drop in raids and dungeons and are gated behind faction rep.
So I would wonder about the fate of those.
Sorelai thank you for the link. Of course I cant participate though in anything Community Council. So I would ask…
Say I am a Hunter Engineer. This means anything I make is BoP. This means I can learn all “mail” versions of goggle appearance X. This means I cant learn it for goggles that are not mail because it is BoP. Apply that to anything BoP.
With the new system will I be able to create a Crafting Order that I can designate to be filled by a specific character and one that is also my own character? So Engineering…my cloth wearer can learn the appearance and creates a Crafting Order for it and says only my Engineer…“Tinkermaster” can fill this order. Will that be possible ever or is that possible in the future?
This would enable me to make my own missing pieces as part of an effort of collection while NOT leveling the profession for up to 3 other armor classes just for the handful of armor specific pieces from Engineering. Insert any profession the BoP aspect is relevant to.
Why pay another player 3000 gold when I can make it for 100 gold in mats I have from farming? I cant imagine if this is possible with the new system but hope it is.
Based on Blue Post #71 I think it is…no as older stuff is back burner and implementation will be considered after Dragonflight masters it. Makes sense…
Regarding older recipes.
Some require an exceptional amount of resources to make. Noone will craft these with the current integration of professions to leveling due to many things and so they will do it only for cosmetics currently. Unless of course Professions change enough to try and warrant making gear for low level characters as they level.
To make this issue more significant, Cobalt as an example is difficult to find. Yes you can get it but its not nearly as easy as it should be to obtain considering it is/should be to Northrend what Copper is to Eastern Kingdoms/Kalimdor…per its place in Northrend crafting.
Dragon scales and turtle scales from the vanilla era are another example. A lot are needed and the time to farm collectively for all the pieces that require that material is relatively high, at least in relation to the cosmetic only use of the older items in the profession system. I noticed plenty of instances where I felt the mat cost was relatively high.
Either it would be useful to increase the drop rates or node spawns or decrease the quantity needed and hope to see that implemented along with the rest of the overhaul though I know its likely focusing on Dragonflight more prominently than the older stuff but will certainly have some unknown impact on the older stuff as well.
Again…post #71…probably not but…sure would be nice =)
Any intention of making it so that my Blacksmith doesnt have to vendor that Tailoring BoP I finally got but cant send to my tailor? Account wide perhaps. See Black Temple and such for examples.
From Post #71…probably not.
Can we finally remove daily CD’s for special mats…Easily See WoD among other expansions. Maybe some exceptions like Sky Golem and such but retaining that cooldown mainly benefits crafters…people still making money off of it.
Post #71…probably not?
Any interest in adding a trivial amount of older reagents to current ones? Probably NOT a popular idea but it MIGHT add some value to older stuff while not being incredibly demanding in terms of time to accumulate etc.
Any interest in bringing back previously removed recipes that ironically were potentially part of the original armor and weapon specialization systems from expansions and base game?
Any recipes that will be adversely impacted by the Dragonflight expansion or unobtainable during/after launch?
Not Post #71?
For Skinning…with the older level system…so prescaling and level squish…was easy to know where to go for leather that you needed etc. Any plans to make that a bit easier to figure out, particularly if you are newer or just never did skinning before? I managed ok but would have ben nice to have it simplified as I did spend time on mobs that normally would have given me say medium leather etc but now do not.
Alright thats all I can think of for now…
