Elemental lariat recipe is still extremely rare

Recipie wont drop and im not paying 1.5 mill for it. no biggie


Honestly if you are behind on professions at any point past like the first month there is no point in doing them. It just takes way too long to get anywhere, forget about the money, just levelling professions for yourself is a pain.

Take this recipe as a prime example, it’s stupidly rare and sells for a ton still, and the longer the game goes on the less people that will be farming the recipe, therefore the harder it will be to get. But now also that we are coming into 10.1 the amount of people doing the primal invasions would drop to almost no one unless they are still trying to farm things like this recipe.

I like the idea of a profession rework, but this is just bad.

I fully expect mid 10.3 there will be a catchup, when it really doesn’t matter.

I also tried farming the neck recipe and gave up. Killed 100+ storm bosses and have nothing to really show for it.


The Unstable Elementium recipe is (nearly) a guaranteed drop, and you can buy the crafted curio to summon the rare on the AH.

Raid-only recipes from Season 1 are going to also drop from the Season 2 raid, but are there going to be any additional methods of acquiring the Lariat recipe, especially since it will continue to be BiS?

Price of EL recipe gone up with 10.1 btw. Since it’s still Bis, but no one does storms anymore

2.3kk on my server with only 2 listings

I have killed tons of the element boss and never seen it.

Still haven’t gotten it to drop - I’ve been trying since the start of the expansion. I don’t have the time to sit on each event, so it’s about weekly I can kill the bosses. No one in my guild has gotten it either. At this point, I might just sell it if I get it goes for 4 million on my server.

This is still super rare and I don’t understand why it still is.


As of this post, undermine shows that only 19 Design: Elemental Lariat are available in the US AH with the lowest price being just under 3,000,000 gold.

No pattern should be this expensive or rare in a current expansion.


It sucks anyway post-nerf, dont bother.

Uh factually incorrect. Lariat is actually better than what it was after you have full sockets, and most people at the high end are using it.

1 million is dirt cheap. The lariat recipe is currently 4.2 million on my server. The OP is on a dead server. Should consider themselves lucky.
EDIT> NM, i see this is a necroed thread. But nothing has changed. The recipe is still rare enough to make me look for another game to play that doesnt waste my time and the price has done nothing but go up.

I’d hardly consider 1 month a necro. The point is less in wanting to sell it, but more in the fact that its not available at a reasonable price for everyone by having more chances of it dropping from mobs, in CURRENT content, and not just rare content that no one does.

This is still a stupid problem… fix the drop rate dammit!


Just another on the long list of items that will remain rare and soon be obsolete.

a well deserved necro.

the item should not be a rare drop at this point. I feel bad for people on low pop servers…good thing I made friends with someone who has it.

My response was after one month of no response. You should know what a necro is because by your logic, the long and daily updated thread WAGGLE Megalounge and Thread (Part 2) is a necro as well.

This thread should be kept going. These recipes are still one of the big problems with crafting.

Yeah I’ve never had a problem getting it crafted and my realm is bad for crafting orders in general
