So, I am slowly finishing off any loose-ends of my profession testing on beta and have ticked one very important item off the list.
Just how many materials, and how many Base Legendary items you need to craft to reach rank 4 in each profession.
Reciently Blizzard split the armor peices into catagories and gave them all different crafting costs. This took the somewhat simple system and put it in the blender. (feel familiar to anyone?)
This has created a large delta between base legos of similar rank in terms of crafting cost and is probably going to give players more to think about when they decide which armor slot to use for their legendary item. Win Win for goblins though in my opinion as this results in a wider selection of the items selling, rather than a simple, "Pick chest because of more secondary stats" cookie cutter meta.
I have put together a spreadsheet of all you should need to know, if you wish to craft base legendaries, or simply need the information if your guild plans to create a "plan of action" between yourselves on who makes what."Manthieus Shadowlands Cheat Sheet"
If you wish to edit any of the values you can save a copy locally. File -> Make a copy.
You should only ever need to adjust values in YELLOW boxes.
I talk a little more about the topic over on YouTube for those who enjoy video content.
If you have any question or suggestion on things to add that could be helpful please let me know. Twitter is best for me personally, https://twitter.com/manthieus
Hope this is helpful and good luck in Shadowlands
