Blizzard on Crafting Mythic Item Level Gear Using Professions in Dragonflight
Blizzard has clarified that players will be able to craft Mythic item level gear with professions in Dragonflight, though it is not currently available on the Beta.
They clarified that
Mythic upgrade profession gear will be equivalent to early bosses in Mythic raids, with
being 3 item levels above that.
As you suspected / hoped, this is just a bit of item level shifting across the board, with this particular change going in earlier than others. In the end, the epic crafted gear item level will not be changing relative to other gear.
Currently the intention is quality 4 mythic upgraded profession gear will be equivalent to the early bosses in mythic raids, with quality 5 being 3 item levels above that.
You should see these new item levels reflected in the next patch on Beta.
I will note that because this is Beta, we will be continuing to evaluate the specific role crafted gear takes in the overall gearing ecosystem, but our intention is absolutely to keep crafted gear as an important contributor to your gearing journey.
Sorry for the confusion.
To answer a few questions:
With Mythic ilvl ranging from 424-434 in incremental steps, can you clarify if “the early bosses” means the first 2 or second 2 bosses?
Currently the first bosses.
Just for some extra clarification, crafting these quality 4 and 5 items won’t be possible till later on in the tier correct? It’s not supposed to be something doable within the first 2-3 weeks of the tier, but rather something that happens later on.
Crafting quality 4 or 5 items would be hypothetically possibly early in the tier. It would take the cooperation of multiple crafters to make the best profession gear, reagents, and someone specialized in the item being made, but it should be possible (although difficult) very early on with enough concerted effort!
