Not talking about the HUGE cost of Orboreal Shards ? Might be important for casual players, as this cost is very high.
I am not sure I like this. I am all for professions being somewhat relevant, but at the same time, you are also kinda expecting everyone, who is a plate user to have BS and so on.
The cost has been updated on BETA so no longer 1000g each and now 125g each.This makes crafting much much cheaper!
I'm not a fan of professions making legendary items...
Definitely going to wait with crafting any legendary till I have the eternal call to the void recipe from the raid, and focusing the effort on making the highest base item first.
Guildmates and friends can help crafting the base items. Many of you think only as Solo players in my opinion.You still can sell what you craft.
They reduced the Cost of the shards from 1000G to 100G so no worries
Whether you buy in the AH, or craft it yourself, the opportunity cost of selling the item to someone else/selling the mats, means it's really costing you the same when you use it for yourself - other than RP / fun reasons, there is no advantage really, with an active marketplace, to making things yourself versus buying them :)
The main issue is gonna be the fact that if everyone who does the professions have to craft 15, the supply is going to be insane. Not everyone is going to be buying rank 2 and rank 3s, which means there's going to be so much surplus
