OMG...Ghost Iron Ore and Bars are going to skyrocket!Time to dust off the 'ol miner toon.
Well, it appears that lower level blacksmithing mats will be a lot less relevant if the PTR changes get approved. I am guessing that Windwool will be used in similar amounts for Tailoring, Exotic leather for leatherworking, and probably tea leaves for Alchemy. Jewelcrafting will be a tad tricky given the inability to mine up gems normally.
This is kinda good and kinda bad..... I mean this is good for getting your blacksmithing up obviously, and it should also so make it so that Ghost Iron is basically worthless in the auction house (on my realm anyway). However it will probably make most ores under ghost iron a lot less valuable. The only reason to buy lower tier ores now is for specific recipes that a plateful of people on the realm can make in the first place......
Oh yeah, heading to the AH, so challenging.
i hate to say
I'm a bit sad, since I always believe that in order to get to max level, you have to work for it. At least, that's the theory.But honestly though? I am overjoyed. I have zero desires in farming for mats for hours to create items that has no value whatsoever (sure, I can disenchant it.. but that in itself is tedious). Well, I guess if I want to do it the "old fashioned" way, I still can, so I don't see what people are complaining about. "But this takes away all the challenges of levelling Blacksmithing!Oh bull. The only "challenge" is farming enough mats, by either doing it yourself or buying it on the AH. Don't tell me that is what you would call "challenge"."It cheapens the achievements of those before us!"This is about as true as us using machine guns cheapening the achievements of our ancestors using muskets and spears.
I'm a little worried that his will devalue older mats, and make it harder for newer players to support themselves as they level.
Dumbing down again? Such a shame, I always enjoyed the Blacksmithing levelling, I guess they will keep the old style of levelling as well, but yet again they give us CRZ and then take away something that would benefit population in the old world as you level a proffession.
nice! now I'll actually be making money farming ghost iron for people who can use it to level bs
Seems pretty cool, but it would be interesting to have minigames or something and "be in school" for professions, then spend a certain amount of time doing it.
My husband recently maxed blacksmithing and I can only imagine how annoyed he'll be when he sees this. I like the changes though, at least they're optional :)
this is not what i hoped to see... bring back the specializations! :( lvling BS is already kinda easy :S
this just means that older ores will no longer be in demand an people wont pick up bs untill lvl 85, bad times
If all professions are changed this way, all crafting materials will have vendor value only. If you can level BS from 1 to 500 using only Ghost Iron, then why would anyone want old world mats (Thorium, Mithril, etc.)? It's a good idea for secondary professions (Cooking, First Aid, etc.) but not Primary ones. This change will not make professions more engaging to new players and it does nothing to fix the problem that leveling a profession as you level up your character simply doesn't work any more. By doing this Blizzard is straight up telling people "Just level up as fast as possible and don't bother with professions until you're level-capped.
Thought this would be the return of BS paths, armoursmith etc. something to fill the (horrendously poorly handled) void but no, it's making it even easier. If you cba levelling BS - don't, go faceroll or whatever it is you do. Why can't Blizzard see that if you give everyone everything instantly:A. Takes less time for us - less money for themB. Damages the AH economy and realm communication between players and interaction C. Nothing to work for - boredom sets in.Hard to keep track of how stupid these guys are at times. Well not "at times", these days.Edit; Crust, spot on, another nail in the coffin of the AH and another vanity/ADHD project launched.
