And I really don’t know why you have such a problem with a crafter wanting to be able to make gear for another one of their characters.
I’m not suggesting that the relics or the base items should be soulbound, just the items that are made by combining them. (I.e. the relics should be taken out of the crafting window so they are similar to, for example, heirloom upgrade tokens). They could even be sold by profession trainers…
Pointless to change. Waste of time and resources in an expansion that already is stretched in this area.
Not really pointless since there are many people that use the auction house to sell gear from old expansions, and this system is very bad for them.
