I'm not sure about this for a variety of reasons; they sound cool, but I remember the balance of this in the already dubious world pvp environment if they continue adding pvp world quests, Cobalt Frag Grenades and other engineering items except more generic items such as gliders become more and more prohibited in casual battlegrounds and in pve it sort of opens up the way to cheese a lot more encounters that have variable mechanics such as spawned adds if you make a mistake for example if everyone is an Engineer or Tailor or whatever (not unheard of raiders to go full FOTM for something) and then we're all back to square one again where no one gets nice things.

I'm guessing with there no longer having strictly PvP realms that PvP world quests will no longer be a thing. I certainly hope that's the case.

Presumably the Ocho Hoofplates and Stirrups will be for Kul'tiras and Zandalar rather than the Broken Isles.

Thought I'd state the 'bleedin' obvious' :)

I changed from JC to Tailoring in the end of WoD, just so I could craft gear during the first month(s) of the new expansion and also because I don't have a miner. I did end up wearing a pure Crit belt I crafted a bit longer than a month, but other than that the profession has been useless to me and the additions for BfA don't really look exciting. I mean with tier sets gone it could be more useful, but they just don't seem to add new recipes in later patches any more that could keep you geared like they did in TBC, Wotlk and Cata.

Should I go back to Jewelcrafting? Any other recommendations? I guess Alchemy is always handy and Engineering looks really unique. I don't mind spending gold to level professions, I have enough of it.

I'd go back to JC. Call me psychic but I can see a lot of call for a certain little red gem.

My tailors, barring one, I haven't levelled for the same reasons you gave. When there is nothing to craft that is even at the level of drops it is a bit disheartening.

I'm very glad my JC is ready to go though.

Edit: P.S. I shall be continuing to play, I got over myself.

Huh, I didn't know that. I assume there's going to be more free for all or designated pvp areas, as well as manually flagging yourself?

Manually flagging is the thing to do with BfA which I generally approve of. It is nice to get to control when you want to fight the other faction and when you simply want to do some "chores" in peace :-)

All non-RP realms will be listed in the realm list as normal.  Each player will be able to manually flag themselves for pvp but only in rested areas (maybe only main cities, not sure though).  With the way Blizzard is sharding the servers they had said that players flagged for pvp will only see other players flagged for pvp, and those that are not flagged would only see others that are not flagged.

For what I understud, only in main cities.

And the diference with the RP realms is that in those "flagged" players are going to see  the "non-flagged" ones, but they aren't able to attack them.

On Normal realms, players with PvP on will also see players from other servers as part of sharding, but on RP realms, you should only see players from the same realm with PvP on, not from other servers from what I understood.

I know they said something about pvp only seeing pvp, but don't remember which realms they were referring to, and I think @Demenzel is right and it's only in major cities, but what I can say for sure is...

In RP realm you only see ppl in that realm, and iit doesn't matter if they are flagged for pvp or not.

In normal realms if you are flagged for pvp you won't see a non-pvp flagged player. That's bcose pvp are going to be in a diferent shard (diferents shards, bcose are going to be more than one)

So is it going to be super easy to level professions on alts so we all have a JC, Enchanter, BS, ect or is it going to be just really big cost items to make ? Also you spelled profession wrong.

It's hard to tell right now. The cap has been increased to 200 (see tooltip), but vendors still use the old system on Alpha. I'll provide more updates when they start testing professions.

      On live servers, the Frog'it World Quest required for "From A to Zereth", is currently available in the US region.
      If you've been waiting a long time for the quest to spawn, you can now complete it on live servers, at least in the US region, according to reports.
      Completing the quest is required for From A to Zereth, and ultimately, the Back from the Beyond meta-achievement that will be removed from the game soon.
      From A to Zereth rewards the Cryptic Aurelid mount.

      Inscription is a new profession added in Wrath of the Lich King Classic. Scribes can create glyphs that enhance spells and abilities, and craft trinkets, and off-hand items.
      The maximum skill cap for Professions is increasing to 450 in Wrath Classic. Professions provide the player with various beneficial buffs in the latest Classic installment. Alchemy, for example, gives you Mixology that increases flask and elixir stats and duration.
      If you're interested in learning more about reaching maximum rank as efficiently as possible, our writers have prepared some detailed Profession guides that will help you during leveling.

      The Sanctum returns and this time Fury does not return with it, as it mostly remains where it was last week. Demonology keeps far ahead of everyone else, while Elemental pushes up, and Fire makes an appearance in Heroic.
      An important note before we begin: as the Fated raids are switching out each week, our comparisons to the previous weeks will be a little less relevant, but we'll still mention it for context - just keep in mind it won't be a direct comparison from week to week as it was before.
      Mythic
      95th Percentile
      Demo's crazy burst from last week is not calming down, as it is still extremely ahead of all other specs, regardless of the raid in question. The Sanctum did see plenty of changes, however, starting with No.2 where Elemental took over, moving 2 spots up and pushing Frost DK and Destruction one down. Fury Warrior did not do as well in the Sanctum as the last time we saw it, as it only rose into 5th, followed by Windwalker and Survival, with the Monk gaining 3 spots and Hunter staying in place compared to last week. Unholy drops 3 spots into 8th, and Retribution is back in the top 10 and doing better than in Nathria, as Fire closes out the top specs. Havoc manages to climb out of the gutter at least a little, but Assassination and Feral remain doomed to the bottom, with Affliction coming back to join them.

      95th percentile Mythic data by Warcraft Logs.
      All Percentiles
      The top 3 looks the same in the generalist bracket as it does in the top, with Survival having to drop out of 2nd and down into 5th, while Fury holds on to No.4 in its favorite raid of the expansion. Windwalker sees a big resurgence in 6th as it rises 5 spots from Nathria, followed by Unholy which dropped 2 since last week. Paladins are back up, same as in the top percentiles, claiming 8th and rising 2, while Outlaw and Destruction close out the top 10.

      All percentiles Mythic data by Warcraft Logs.
      Heroic
      Heroic didn't quite change as much as the rest, but we do have a big shift in No.4, as Fire comes up 3 spots and pushes Shadow, which in turn pushes Unholy down 1 as well. The rest of the top 10 almost remains the same as last week, with Beast Mastery and Retribution at 8 and 9, but while the color of No.10 remains the same, there's a different Warrior spec there with Arms replacing Fury as it falls 4 spots from last week. Subtlety moves significantly out of the bottom, as Feral joins Affliction and Assassination down there.
      All percentiles Heroic data by Warcraft Logs.
       
      As always, if you want even more info on a spec, you can check out our class guides here, for a DPS tier list you can go here, or for even more data, head on over to Warcraft Logs. You can also check out our Sepulcher raid guides.

      The eighth week of Shadowlands Season 4 ends with the weekly maintenance on Tuesday, and we're looking at how the Mythic+ tier list has shifted, based on the data from Subcreation.
      DISCLAIMER
      The following post is based on statistics provided by Subcreation, a website that gathers various Mythic+ data from live servers. Please note that the tier list is biased toward the top end because it only looks at the top 100 keys per dungeon per affix and it doesn't look at keys below +16 and untimed runs.
      Therefore, the data presented in this news post will always differ from our Mythic Tier Lists maintained by our writer Petko.
      Data Reliability
      The data used in the post comes from Subcreation, a site maintained by Alcaras. Subcreation provides statistical analysis of Mythic+ dungeons, raids, and PvP in Shadowlands, and the data is provided via the Warcraft Logs API and Raider.io. If you'd like to support Subcreation, you can check out their Patreon.
      How the Data is Calculated
      The site looks at the top 100 keys per dungeon per affix across all regions and examines their raider.io scores. For each dungeon and specialization, the site takes the lower bound of a 95% confidence interval of the top 100 runs for each specialization. The site then averages these lower bounds, one per dungeon, to get an overall average lower bound for each spec, which is finally used to create the tier list.
      The site takes the lower bounds of the 95% confidence interval calculated and then clusters them into 6 buckets using the Ckmeans algorithm. You can find more information by reading the site's FAQ.
      Tanks, Healers, Melee, and Ranged are all on the same scale, they're just shown separately for easier comparison across roles.
      Mythic+ Tier List in Shadowlands Season 4 Week 8
      The specs are ranked based on their lb_ci which stands for the lower bound of a 95% confidence interval. If a certain tier is missing, it's not occupied by any specialization.
      Tank Tier List
      Based on 26,165 runs, ranging in difficulty from +16 to +34.
