Oh, and another thing. Blizzard is admitting that CRZ sucks so much that they're removing the need to level professions in CRZ zones.Cheers.EXACTLY THIS.
This is suck keep the old and make it even harder if we can :)
btw, the only thing i didnt like about it:You spend a lot of gold on ore to vendor worthless grey items? O_o
Blacksmithing was one of the hardest skills. Its easier now. For bots. HAHA!
The profession they REALLY need to revamp is Leatherworking. The time required to farm the mats for each point earned is much higher for LW than any other profession.
I'd rather farm the world with less demand on the resources than farm one spot with dozens of other people, honestly. Playing "race to the node" is not my favorite way to spend my afternoon. My second BS only took 2 days to go from 0 to 600. Its really not that bad...
Mithril Ore hasn't been a problem for over 2 years. There's a node every 5 feet in Thousand Needles and Felwood to name but two zones.But yeah, nice to see Blacksmithing getting some love.
Another option would be to use the Inscription model. You can trade the "current" ink for any of the previous inks 1-to-1. You'd just need to figure out some way to let the items from other professions ONLY work with those professions....
Oh, and another thing. Blizzard is admitting that CRZ sucks so much that they're removing the need to level professions in CRZ zones.Cheers.EXACTLY THIS.um.. no. They had this new system in with Cooking before MoP even launched and said at that time they hoped to add it for all the crafting skills.This was a problem long before CRZ.. especially for people with heirlooms. Even if you took the appropriate gathering skill (mining with BS), you would quickly outlevel your crafting skills.This addresses a fundamental problem with all MMORPGS. As expansions go by, they must increase the speed of leveling so that players don´t even up a year behind where the majority of players are. As they increase leveling speed, it is very difficult to micro-adjust crafting skills to also keep up.And dude, who the heck cares about CRZs anyway. it takes like a day to be lvl 85.

You'd just need to figure out some way to let the items from other professions ONLY work with those professions....But how do you create 'current' ink while you're low level in Inscription?The BS way is better, you just need high level mining to get BS from 1-600.For Inscription, it would work if you could trade 'Current' herbs for all the inks.Cheers.
I like this and I don't. The only reason I don't is because I see it as removing the older content and making it pointless. Sure it's still a choice for the players to level it the old, hard way, but you know most people are going to simply wait until they're high enough level to mine out some Ghost Iron and jump to 500. Having said that, I will also add that I'm not at all against this. I recently got my warrior back to BSing after a couple years of herbalism that was simply for gold grinding. He's currently up to Fel Iron and he might be taking a break until the next patch. Maybe hording some Ghost Iron for the impending skill jump. Certainly makes the skill switch much more viable and attractive. Before you would need to have a hefty amount of money or a tolerance for gathering mindlessly for hours. This gets you back to the new, active endgame content quicker.
The profession they REALLY need to revamp is Leatherworking. The time required to farm the mats for each point earned is much higher for LW than any other profession.This is balanced by the fact that Leatherworkers don't have to compete with others for resources. Whereas BS/ENG/ALCH/JC/ect have to gather ores or herbs and compete with other gatherers in the zone for them, leatherworkers just have to kill mobs to get their stuff, and there is never a shortage of skinnable mobs, specially given how you can skin stuff other people have killed.This is the same reason why Tailors also need a CRAPLOAD of cloth to level their craft. They also don't have to compete with others for their crafting resource.
...I could've used this a whole hell of a lot sooner, as someone who DID go through it the old way. Hunting down all that fel iron I needed as a tremendous pain in the ass.Now I want this for the other crafting ones too, particularly engineering, and as someone else said, Leatherworking.
So so so sad.
I like the option of the easier way to level BSing. While yes, it's obnoxious to people who've already capped it... I know, I felt the same way with the changes to cooking. ...Until I got to level it on alts fast and cheap.For me, it's an opportunity to finally make a nice bit of money with my ghost iron, instead of prospecting on my JC it all now that my engineer is maxxed.I, for one would like to see this added for other of the more complex crafting professions, because some mats are damn near impossible to get due to crossrealm competition. Trying to raise BSing on my 35 pally can only be done by AH because 90s from Garona and various other servers are farming the same mats I need, and they can fly from node to node... and it only gets worse when you get to outlands and beyond.TL;DR-I'm sympathetic to the people who dislike the idea but it will have its perks as well.
So how many whiners are going to mistake difficulty for time consumption? There is no skill or challenge in farming Fel Iron and Cobalt except resilience to mind numbing boredom. If you want Warcraft to be a second job you have to pay for why don't you go to Eve Online instead?
If this is being done for Blacksmithing then I think it should also be done for all other professions. I have absolutely nothing against this. More options are a good thing. It sure would be nice to have more options for the other professions tho.
Lmao you should say this to Cooking. Things should be fun not tedious. There was nothing fun about the old version. I can attest to that because I've tried doing it and I just can't.
I wish they keep main professions the way they are now ;( nothing is more rewarding then finally getting to max lvl
