    5.2 Speculation, The lightning forge and crafter gladiator gear

    Hi folks,

    So it seems blacksmiths are in for a treat in 5.2 finally crafted raid worthy weapons and retro items all craftable at this new lightning forge.
    I know for one I'm going to stockpile living steel and ghost iron bars for this. Also Crafted gladiator gear for all the professions including the trinkets which i expect jewelcrafter's to make. Of course all this new gear will need gemmed and enchanted so pvp gems and enchants will providfe us with nice profits.

    If you like have a blacksmith at 90 i'd get out and farm some Spirits of harmony.

    Anyways whats your thoughts on the patch info so far ?

    There is some talk about AH purchase orders where sellers can sell directly to characters rather than selling to the open market. It really makes me wish Blizzard would open the AH API enough to allow engaging other characters through the API rather than through inside the game -- or more to the point to enable remote sales and purchases.

    Duped item sales and whatnot are definitely an issue and Blizzard has made it very clear that they want the AH to operate only in-game with human interaction, and that any Blizzard developer resources dedicated elsewhere are a liability rather than an asset, but duped item sales and botters and everything else are already an issue.

    I'm loving this. My question is which tradeskill will make the staves. I'm thinking inscription.

    I'm going to begin stockpiling SoH on each of my crafters (glad we have a bit of forewarning) and raw materials for this patch.

    Should be fun!

    wow if they can do purchase orders they can make bounty hunting , well one can dream. I don't know about staves they are conquest atm and its dreadful gear we can make. No weapons for honor atm kinda suggests no weapons craftable in 5.2 but offhands etc yes.

    The purchase order bit is a little misconception, Blizzard I believe posted in a tweet/forums that it will not happen any time soon.

    From the latest PTR patch notes on mmo-champion
    Professions
    Blacksmithing


    • Lightning Steel Ingot - Combine Trillium and Ghost Iron to create a Lightning Steel Ingot. In the process, you may discover a Blacksmithing plan you have yet to learn.


    Mats are 1x [Trillium Bar] and 3x [Ghost Iron Bar] and there doesn't seem to be a cooldown on it.

    I wonder if that includes all the old rare/unobtainable plans from previous expansions. Looks like it's time to finally pull my finger out and level up my BS.

    The [Imperial Silk] cooldown also has this new pattern discovery, which seems rather unfair because of the cooldown / SoH requirements.
    There are also 4 new tailoring spells (2 head and 2 feet items) which require [Imperial Silk] and Haunting Spirit.

    I'm thinking there are a few possibilities for the recipes that can be discovered:
    - New BoE gear - seems unlikely as there probably will be 2 slots only.
    - New 458 PvP gear - more likely that the old 450 recipes will be replaced like we had in Cata
    - A selection of recipes that are no longer in game. Possible some kind of replica-of that use new/updated crafting materials such as the new lighting steel ingots.

    In the past few seasons you could get honor gear that was ~6 item levels better than conquest gear from the previous season. So since the new honor gear will be 489ish, you can count on the crafted being higher than 458.
