wtf are they doing
It can't really be as it would force us to use lowlevel gear to have our 2 embelishment slots filled. OR we do move away from embelishments as a total.
It was already hard to make any gold with crafting professions on a low pop server, even in 10.1... Crafting professions completely worthless moving forward.
They were too good in S2 and made mythic raid loot almost pointless
I wonder why they made this change. Pulling out some 447 gear from a vendor is just too easy to gear up.
Big L if true.
This is absolutely the worst that could have happened to gearing. Crafted gear made professions relevant and exciting. Taking that relevance and excitement away from them will just dumpster crafted gear and is a bit insulting to players that have dedicated time and resources to make their professions assets. Hopefully it is not intended and is subject to change in further PTR iterations.
Classic Blizz...2 steps forward, 1 step back.
guess were back to not caring about crafted gear
making crafted gear relevant beyond week 1 was one of the biggest wins of DF. If this goes ahead as planned, this would be a backwards step imo. Still time on the PTR for changes however so give feedback to devs
Not final but hopefully they don't go through with it, the whole point to the system we have now was to make crafting relevant again. Nerfing it as hard as they plan to currently isn't the way to go here, I can understand if it was like season one to where it was a few ilvls under the mythic maximum. Yet making it essentially heroic will kill any sort of armor crafting.
If crafted gear isn't essentially BIS for its slot, I won't be crafting any items.What a big L from Blizzard. They surely "learn their lessons" in a weird way.
One of the worst #$%^ing choices of all time
Are we just ignoring that new aspect takes only 1 crest to make instead of 4?Probably will be able to upgrade crafted gear further with more crests. Just a change to have lower upfront crest cost.
The ilvl of raid and crafted gear have been different when ptr first goes up compared to live in beta and 10.1. Probably the case here too. But wowhead going to wowhead.
Enough outcry itll get fixed. Hope more crafters give feedback.
Oof I wasted so much time every week lvling every profession and getting knowledge.Thought I was ganna get massive gains for that payoff... sad day
This PTR buffels me completely ...These changes are so random and absolutely rediculous.They take everything out of the game that has been fun or was an improvement.Being it classes or crafting, etc.I mean it is being said pretty much every time but I seriously begin to doubt that the current dev team even plays the game privately.This all looks like them just doing their job and go home after that to not touch the game anymore.
