Creation Catalyst UI Receives a Facelift in Dragonflight Beta - Expansion Preparation?
On the latest Dragonflight Beta builds, the Creation Catalyst in Zereth Mortis has received a facelift - The UI colors have changed to more closely match the Dragonflight aesthetic, as well as changing the season numbers.
In comparison, this is what the Creation Catalyst looks like on live servers, as well as the Dragonflight pre-patch PTR.
The Creation Catalyst has been one of the more clamored recent additions in Shadowlands, and Game Director Ion Hazzikostas stated during the beginning of the Dragonflight Alpha that
the Creation Catalyst was one of the systems they wanted to bring forward to Dragonflight
Taliesin: Is there any kind of systems you thought really worked in Shadowlands that you want to move over into Dragonflight? People are thinking like, the Creation Catalyst, stuff like that.
Ion: I think (the Creation Catalyst) that's one of them, although I think we probably don't want to get into the habit of having to reinvent a new "foozle" in every zone with some, you know, magical currency that's there just to craft tier sets or whatever from that tier.
We're still figuring out exactly how this will work but I think that professions are actually probably a really good long term home for that sort of device. Where, you know, over the course of a tier, after the first few weeks of collecting and, you know, long term. But what if you could take your Plate Helm that you earned from that raid or M+ dungeon and take it to a skilled Blacksmith with a reagent who can then make that into a set helm? That's the sort of thing we'd love to carry forward.
I think making tier sets accessible to a variety of playstyles and also having, you know, as we mentioned earlier, kinda preplanning that kind of catch-up mechanics/RNG backstop that can come into play partway through the tier, that's something we're really happy with.
Did you like the Creation Catalyst? Would you want to see a return in Dragonflight?
