WoW: Dragonflight makes everything new - overview of crafting professions (2)

The World of Warcraft profession system has now gathered a lot of dust – and the developers at Blizzard know that too. So it is all the more gratifying that with the upcoming expansion Dragonflight we will be able to enjoy various innovations and adjustments that will (hopefully) make crafting interesting again. Some of these changes can already be played in the current alpha version of Dragonflight, and the WoW team has explained some of them in more detail in an official blog post. We therefore summarize for you what will happen with our journey to the Dragon Islands in the WoW professions.

Warning: The information below is based on the status of the Dragonflight Alpha. Some things may change before the expansion is released.

Professions in WoW: Dragonflight – General changes

The WoW developers take on various problems with the professions in Dragonflight. This includes managing resources and batch sizes for reagents. A new reagent bag, which is similar to the material store and has its own pocket space, is intended to provide a better overview of resource management. In addition, you can now stack reagents up to 1,000 pieces (previously 200 pieces) and most consumables up to 200 pieces (previously 20 pieces).

Another innovation in the profession system with Dragonflight is the so-called Remanufacture. This feature allows you to re-craft an item by combining the item, some Reagents, and Artisan’s Alacrity. This allows you to adjust the optional reagents of the equipment in question and improve the quality of the item. In addition to Remanufacturing, you need the Reagent Artisan’s Alacrity to craft consumables that help you equip your professions, as well as to craft special profession equipment.

Professional equipment in WoW: Dragonflight

Speaking of profession equipment: You can use a total of three special equipment items for almost all professions in Dragonflight, including a tool and two accessories. These slots ensure that you will no longer have to carry blacksmith’s hammers, fishing rods, skinning knives and similar items in your inventory if you want to practice your profession. It is also no longer necessary to change objects.

However, the new profession equipment that you can craft via your professions has other advantages: you can use it to benefit from various bonuses that, for example, improve your stats for gathering and crafting. In addition, they offer visual enhancements: If your character performs a crafting action, he puts on his professional equipment and uses it to change his outfit. The developers have illustrated exactly what this looks like in several screenshots:

Crafting Stations: The base of professions in Dragonflight

The professions of WoW (buy now ) should be more fun again with the upcoming expansion and, above all, offer players the opportunity to craft competitive equipment for the Dragonflight endgame. Among other things, the crafting orders, with which players can commission other players to produce certain items, are new. You also have the opportunity to improve your skills in a specific profession in various ways.

This is where the so-called crafting stations come into play, of which there should be a separate copy for each profession on the dragon islands (except for cooking and blacksmithing, more on the latter later). Almost all recipes that you can use with your professions in Dragonflight require such a crafting station. The capital of the Dragon Islands, Valdrakken, has a special Professions Center where you can find crafting stations, profession trainers, the NPC for crafting orders, and the auction house.

Jewelcrafting and Inscription – Probing and Milling will be updated

With Dragonflight, the WoW developers want to make it easier for jewelcrafters and inscriptionists to probe and grind reagents. In Dragonflight there are corresponding recipes for the ores and herbs of each expansion, for example “Probing the Shadowlands” for ores of the Shadowlands. In the corresponding window you can then directly select the amount of ores or herbs that you want to process.

Blacksmithing in Dragonflight – What is changing

We can already try out for ourselves what is happening for Schmiede in Dragonflight in the alpha of the expansion. Especially the new interface is worth a look. As usual, you can select the learned recipes on the left side and also display unlearned recipes. A progress bar shows you how far along you are in Dragonflight – so far, so known. A new feature is the ability to track recipes such as quests. This allows you to see at a glance which reagents you need for each recipe, without having to open the recipe book.

Similar to Shadowlands, you can also add optional reagents to recipes. There are two slots for each item. In addition, you can add two so-called “finishing” reagents in the form of different oils when crafting an item. These reagents influence the crafting process: the essence of Tyr, for example, increases your crafting skill by 30 points when used when using a recipe.

A separate tab next to the slots for the optional reagents shows you the crafting details. Here you can see at a glance:

  • how difficult it is to craft the selected item
  • what crafting skill you have (improves item quality)
  • how high the inspiration is (probability with which you produce the item including 17 bonus skill points)

Finally, at the bottom of the detail tab, you will see a bar that shows you the quality of the manufactured item. The more items of this type you produce, the higher the probability of good quality. Items that Blacksmiths can craft in Dragonflight, as of the current alpha level, include:

  • armor
  • weapons
  • Tools (pickaxe, blacksmith’s hammer, sickle)
  • Consumables (repair hammer that lets you repair equipment)
  • sharpening stones for weapons
  • still unknown items for dragon riding (probably armor)
