Even the most callous among the mogu quaver at the thought of the dark experiments performed at the Thunder King's behest. Long ago, a young cloud serpent was twisted into a multi-headed hydra and left to languish beneath Lei Shen's throne. Now the twisted creature lurks deep in the Forgotten Depths, awaiting the moment it may finally inflict its terrible agony upon others.

I'm so disappointed with this. I really honestly don't know how to express this clearly enough. At least before, a person had to spend some time going around, thinking things through a little bit, chipping away. If they were a max level blacksmith, you knew they at least had to run around and put some time and effort into it.This? I'm done. I'm honestly done with WoW. This was just the final bit of ballast added to sink this for me.PS - Oh, and the fact they are doing this for blacksmithing, but apparently none of the others so far?..... way to go Blizzard. Way to go. Nice way to just give the middle finger to people.
All this does it greatly increases the price of Ghost Iron Ore and those makes people want to go farm it to *!@#. So actually leveling BS this way is either going to be EXTREMELY expensive or just as time consuming as the old way. I am glad they didn't just make it use vendor items and you still have to go out and farm ore. Current Tier ore is going to be impossible to farm... so GL to people that think they are going to have it on easy street in 5.2
If all the professions are going the way of cooking and blacksmithing I want to know where is the NPC that I can stand my new alts in front of, toss coins at him and have them level-capped in a hour?
Takes about 3278 Ghost Iron bars to level 1 - 500. Actually not that bad.
lol at the fact that they cut the spawns for ghost iron by 50% + another bit... and then make the leveling of blacksmith require 10x more ghost iron than it did previously(and 10x is being nice... it is actually much more)edit: @^^^ person... that is over 6500 ore.... which is a hell of a lotta farming time to gather the 1600 nodes...
As much as I don't agree with with the whole "easy mode leveling" that's being put into the game, I would rather do this than have to farm a lot of random mats in vanilla, and end up with things I can't sell anymore :/
its all bop wheres the boe stuff and Ghost iron is now worth trash
For all of you that think Fishing needs a leveling revamp, you can go from 1-600 fishing before Lvl 10 by farming the junk pools on Darkmoon Island. Having lots of money or a higher level toon to get Water Walking Elixers is nice but not necessary. You can also get Spirits of Harmony at low levels the same way.
The addition to include the other tradeskills would be a nice boost especially if you have lots of alts and you want their tradeskills to be maxed! :)
This is awesome.For people who don't like to farm old mats, they can select this option. I have an alt that is torn between JC or BS. I guess I know which profession she is going to choose now.
Leatherworking! Let me tell you about god-damned freaking leatherworking!On my main, as he reached level 55-60 ish, I decided that I would boost his LW all the way into something I could USE. That's the whole point of a profession, right. Right?. So I stopped. I stopped doing everything else. I was not doing pugs, not taking quests, I just went after animals I could kill and skin.Kill and skin.Kill and skin.Kill and skin.Kill and skin.Sanity reaching 0 outside of a raid, kill and skin. Up to today, I try to skin anything I kill, be that beast, human, orc, blood elf... One of my greatest personal achievements was to skin every raid boss that could be skinned. Forget his head, I'm using his wings for a new suit. When I woke up from that nightmare, I was 79, and still in Outlands. I hadn't set foot on Northrend until then. Hadn't done much else either.So yeah, the only way of leveling LW and skinning is to KILL STUFF. No nice itty bitty nodes waiting to be harvested, you must hunt your prey, butcher it, skin it while it is warm, cook its flesh while its heart still beats. And stop whining about nodes, nodes won't attack you back and try to eat your face, whimps. So, you also learn to be a man, because nothing is free. I wanna see Blizz get around that detail in a nice fashion and cheat everybody off of the enlightening experience.
Thanks Wirxaw for the data on the Pre MoP Black Smithing mats. Based on those numbers there is no way anyone should think the new method is easier on the number of mats. That means the naysayers can only be complaining about the lack of time sunk into running all over the place which is baloney.In order to do things the old way would mean no flying in Azeroth. In fact it should be walkies until you get to zones for 40+. No fast mount till 60+zones. No flying in Outlands till 70. No flying in Northrend till 77. NOBODY is going to do that.
