Professions in World of Warcraft: Dragonflight have received a serious overhaul. Developers have done a lot to make them feel useful, and these changes are long overdue. The existing system of how you craft hasn’t changed, but several things around crafting have changed. There are new crafting stats, item quality changes, and more to look out for if you’re considering crafting in World of Warcraft: Dragonflight.
All tinkerers got something new. While it can seem quite daunting at first, it’s a great new system in the game. Gearcrafted feels stronger than previous expansions and professional specialization has been improved.
Professions have received a major overhaul in World of Warcraft: Dragonflight
Whichever profession you choose on the Dragon Islands, you will see a similar user interface. On the left side of the screen is a recipe list. The central section of the user interface is devoted to reagents for each item you are trying to create, as well as slots for optional reagents. These can increase the quality of your item, but also increase the difficulty.
The necessary Skill is the minimum professional level you need to create the item in question, and Difficulty recipe is the level you need to get the best possible version of whatever you’re making World of Warcraft: Dragon Flight.
While this is not new, it is presented in a clear way for you to understand. While these are quite obvious, there are also Occupation statistics, which are significantly more confusing. There are new professional statistics that increase your potential in your profession. Each create and collect has its new stats to watch out for.
- Inspiration: Gives a chance to be inspired, allowing you to craft with greater skill
- Resourcefulness: Provides an opportunity to use less marketable reagents
- Processing Speed: You make a percentage faster
- multicraft: This adds a chance to craft additional items, but only works on stackable items, such as alchemists
- Finesse: You have a chance to collect more of the primary reagent you grow. The higher the stat, the more likely you are to get this trigger
- Dexterity: Increases collection speed
- Perception: You have a higher chance of spotting rare reagents while farming
Make equipment also now exists and is automatically equipped when you open your crafting window. Each profession has three slots – a tool and two accessories, which boost your crafting stats. You’ll want to spend some time and gold acquiring good crafting stats to make your time as easy as possible.
As you gain materials to craft with, you will probably also find that many of them have quality levels. This will mean that the Craft quality of something is likely to be improved. It can mean that a flask gives a buff for longer, or that you have a higher item level. Skill level, high-quality reagents, and optional reagents all help to improve the item.
Fortunately, you see a quality bar before you start making anything. That way you can see how great an item will be before you throw your resources into it. You can also now recreate items.
This is an excellent one opportunity to play World of Warcraft: Dragonflight. Now you can take an item you’ve already crafted, use some of the materials, and a new material – Artisan’s Mettle. You can use this system to improve an item’s quality, change its stats, level up the item, or modify the optional reagents you have used.
Vocational Specializations, Vocational Knowledge, and Crafting Orders
Vocational specializations, while not new, have been revised. Each craft profession has a set of specializations in World of Warcraft: Dragonflight. For example, blacksmiths can specialize in Gunsmiths, gunsmiths, special blacksmithsor Hammer Control.
These become available after you have 25 skill points in a profession, and the others are unlocked at 50, 75, and so on. You can also unlock all specializations for your professions. But choose the one you want to focus on first. When choosing a specialization you will also need Vocational knowledge to unlock their skill tree.
The best way to win Profession Knowledge is to complete daily missions by professional trainers in Trap dragons. It’s not the only way to gain professional knowledge in World of Warcraft: Dragonflight. Every time you create something new for the first time, you gain professional knowledge. Collecting professions can also help you gain vocational knowledge when mining or harvesting resources.
The last but perhaps most exciting facet of crafting is that Make orders are now available in World of Warcraft: Dragonflight. You can use this interface to ask others to make items for you – even Bind on Pickup items. You can make this request Public, Guildor Personal.
You can adjust the reagents used, or you can ask the crafter to use their materials if you miss something. However, this will almost certainly cost more gold, so be warned. It’s a brilliant system and it’s about time it was added the game.
