    1/30 - 5.2 PTR profession updates

    Some very interesting information datamined from today's PTR update.

    (As always, all of this is subject to change. We never know if these will hit live or not until the patch actually arrives.)

    Blacksmithing - a lot of new patterns added that are labeled "Training Projects" and appear to create non-useful items. Sounds to me like a way to level up Blacksmithing from the start using the newest materials. If true this will be great for those times when you hit a particular plateau where the AH is dry of the materials you need. Will be interesting to see if they go with this and possibly add more later for the other professions.

    Jewelcrafting

    Serpent's Heart - A new daily CD combining three Serpent's Eyes into a container of some sort, no clue yet what can be in it.

    Looks like JCs will be gaining a way to create their own Primal Diamonds as well, but very costly. Requires 5 each of the uncommon gems and a Spirit of Harmony.

    Leatherworking gains the ability to create a Magnificent Hide out of 20 Exotic Leather or Prismatic Scales on a shared daily CD.


    It definitely appears that Blacksmithing is receiving a lot of love in this patch. I know I plan to have mine leveled up and ready to go before it hits. The contents of the JC Serpent's Heart will be interesting to find out as well.

    "Training Projects?" NOOOOOO - this will potentially kill the sales of lower levels bars etc.

    And my new Blacksmithing profession kits. But I recall similar speculation back in Cata at some point that was going to work for ALL professions, but it never came to fruition.

    I just hope Blizz doesn't do it. Phasing out old content is bad.

    Honestly some of this stuff looks like it could be a problem or something we have seen before.

    Blacksmithing - Not sure if I'm happy or not. Sounds easy, kills off lower level mats but honestly I'd take it. Profession kits are not my area of business.

    Jewelcrafting - Serpent's Heart will be the new prisim, I'm sure of it. The primal diamonds feature is nice, but useless for most gold makers, I tend to think the most common profession here is alchemy. At least now they have a use for those SoH beyond cuts.

    Leatherworking - Just dont remove the 1 Hide - 50 Leather conversion, Ok? Ok.
    No Signature is Valid.

    So now Blacksmithing (via Lightning Steel Ingot), Tailoring (via [Imperial Silk]) and Leatherworking (via Magnificence of Leather or Magnificence of Scales) all give the ability to learn the new patterns using a daily CD.

    Seems interesting, really waiting for more info on that Serpent's Heart CD, the whole JC's being able to craft a meta gem thing is ridiculous, the mat cost is really damn high. I think it's for low pop servers where prices might be inflated too high.

    As much as I love to sell (and charge a lot for) old mats, I do think its high time they made leveling less painful. A friend of mine was leveling an alt's LW, and boy, did he grow infuriated, since Medium Hides were like 100 g in the AH, while still only a couple were available. Farming them is equally impossible.

    Leveling has just gotten too damn fast in the lower zones to offer any kind of steady supply of mats, and being stuck on 265 skill because mats are just not possible to, if not easily, obtained is just annoying, rather than endearing.

    Many, though not most, old mats have multiple uses (and I am sure we will always find a way to profit off them), but getting rid of the things like hides is welcome in my book.

    First thing I did when this popped up on MMO champ was empty the AH of ghost iron ore. Even if it doesn't make 5.2 the ore is still useful.

    Magnificence of Leather (New) Create a Magnificent Hide from Exotic Leather once a day. In the process, your knowledge of Pandaren Leatherworking may increase, resulting in the discovery of a new pattern. Shares cooldown with the Magnificence of Scales.

    Is there any indication of or site showing actual new patterns yet? If it only gives older ones i'd be fine with that too, as long as it gives me those last few BoP Sunwell patterns...
