Item Level 385 Crafted Gear Now Requires the Profession to Equip in Patch 8.1

Recommended Posts

Redditor Makesmashgreatagain noticed after 8.1 went live that ilvl 385 crafted items no longer work if you abandoned the profession used to craft them.

Update: This was an unintended bug that was recently reverted.

Placeholder for tweet 1072993206856380416

Emblazoned Deep Sea Breeches Emblazoned Deep Sea Breeches now require Zandalari Tailoring (110) as depicted in the screenshot below. The player switched to Alchemy/Enchanting and after Tides of Vengeance, the crafted item was red and gave no stats. The change was omitted from the official patch notes. We don't know at this time if it's just a bug or intended.

  • Fixed a bug that allowed some Battle For Azeroth crafted gear to be worn by player characters who no longer had the crafting skill to create it.

This was reverted so you can now wear crafted gear that you previously had. The new profession requirement only applies to any future gear you craft. 

How much foresight would it have taken to make sure that currently crafted items will still be wearable? It makes you wonder how terribly that company must be ran internally for such glaring mistakes like this that BFA has had already. 

Sure was nice trying to raid mythic with 330 ilvl.

Yeah it was a bad change, not so much because of locking BoP professions items to that profession, but because it was made midway through a cycle. The Engi goggles had Requires Zandalari Engineering (115) right there on the item, the other professions? Nope. Consistency and communication is important Blizz, the players who made their gear and dropped their profession for another one did nothing wrong, since you didn't communicate the requirement to keep the profession.

Concerning consitency, i do not understand why juwelers can't craft a 385 item while other professions can. It wouldn't even have any mainstate on a ring, so there is no reason to say it would be overpowered. There isn't even another senguicell recipe. Where is the consistency in treating professions equally? - Ah well yeah i forgot, seems to be the new bfa-design-guidline ?

I want to say you will be able to craft a ilvl 355 and a 380'ish ring with the new designs that was released this patch.  However you won't be able to farm some of the new mats till the release of the new Raid.

Mh, so i overread it in patchnotes or it was not mentioned. But if its not possible to get the needed resources before next raid, this crafting is meaningless...

      Blizzard just outlined the changes coming to Rogue's Serrated Bone Spike (Necrolord Covenant Ability) in Patch 9.0.5.
      (Source)
      In patch 9.0.5, we’re reworking the Rogue Necrolord Covenant ability Serrated Bone Spike. We’re now testing this set of changes:
      Rogue Serrated Bone Spike initial damage increased by 300%. Resolved an issue that prevented Serrated Bone Spike’s initial damage from dealing a critical strike. Serrated Bone Spike now grants 1 combo point plus 1 per active bone spike after it strikes the target. Serrated Bone Spike no longer refunds a charge and gets removed when the target is healed to full. Serrated Bone Spike is now removed when the target leaves combat. The design intention for this button is: impale your enemy with a bone spike from Maldraxxus, inflicting a permanent damage over time on them. We found that while the ability performed well in situations where multiple targets persisted for long times, it was unattractive elsewhere.
      Greatly increasing the spell’s initial damage should improve its performance in the ‘other’ situations, including those where the enemy doesn’t live very long. However, we then feel we need to address a problem with the ability in PvP. Previously, if the afflicted target was healed to full, the damage over time effect would be removed and a charge of the spell refunded. The way this played out was the effect constantly being removed and charges constantly being refunded. As a result, the Rogue is compelled to constantly hit this button. With an increase to the initial damage component, this could be problematic. So we’re removing that mechanic, and we’re removing the bleed entirely whenever a player leaves combat.

      This week's Patch 9.0.5 Build 37774 was marked as Release Candidate, but when will the patch hit live servers?
      Something really important to keep in mind when determining the release date of Patch 9.0.5 is the maximum Renown cap that we will reach next week.
      Shadowlands Release Week: Renown level 3; Week of December 1: Renown level 6; Week of December 8: Renown level 9; Week of December 15: Renown level 12; Week of December 22: Renown level 15; Week of December 29: Renown level 18; Week of January 5: Renown level 21; Week of January 12: Renown level 24; Week of January 19: Renown level 26; Week of January 26: Renown level 28; Week of February 2: Renown level 30; Week of February 9: Renown level 32; Week of February 16: Renown level 34; Week of February 23: Renown level 36; Week of March 2: Renown level 38; Week of March 9: Renown level 40. Although there are no new Renown levels in Patch 9.0.5, there are a few changes coming to the weekly Renown quests! If you reach Renown 40, the weekly quest to gather 1,000 Anima will give you 1,500 Gold instead of Renown.
      On top of that, if your character recruits the maximum amount of Souls for their Covenant, your weekly quest to rescue Souls from the Maw will give you 500 Anima.

      Once players reach 40 Renown with their Covenant, the weekly quest to gather 1000 Anima will now award you with 1500 gold. Once players have recruited the maximum amount of Souls for their Covenant, your weekly quest to rescue Souls from the Maw will now award you with 500 Anima. Both changes have been outlined in the preliminary 9.0.5 patch notes, which is why we think the patch will release one week after we hit maximum Renown, and that's March 16 for the US region and March 17 for the EU.

      The Peak of Serenity Discord spotted two undocumented Windwalker Monk changes that will likely result in a DPS loss for the spec in Patch 9.0.5.
      Mark of the Crane stacks no longer persist through death and are lost when the target dies, meaning Spinning Crane Kick will deal less damage in Patch 9.0.5. When the Monk cancels Fists of Fury to cast other spells during Storm, Earth, and Fire, the spirits will no longer mimic the Monk's other abilities while also channeling Fists of Fury but will cancel casting Fists of Fury to mimic other spells. You can find the rest of the class changes coming in 9.0.5 below.
       Death Knight  Mage  Rogue Death Knight 9.0.5 Class Changes
      Mage 9.0.5 Class Changes
      Rogue 9.0.5 Class Changes
       Demon Hunter  Monk  Shaman Demon Hunter 9.0.5 Class Changes
      Monk 9.0.5 Class Changes
      Shaman 9.0.5 Class Changes
       Druid  Paladin  Warlock Druid 9.0.5 Class Changes
      Paladin 9.0.5 Class Changes
      Warlock 9.0.5 Class Changes
       Hunter  Priest  Warrior Hunter 9.0.5 Class Changes
      Priest 9.0.5 Class Changes
      Warrior 9.0.5 Class Changes

      Are you wondering how your spec performs in Mythic+? Here's a tier list with all specializations!
      DISCLAIMER
      In this article, we are taking a look at the tier list for Mythic+ based on the data gathered by Benched.me. The site plots all runs available from the Blizzard API (excluding the Chinese region) on a single ridge plot, so it is different from our Shadowlands Mythic+ Rankings maintained by Petko.
      How the Data is Calculated
      To rank all specializations, Benched.me uses something called Meta Ratio Score. The "ratio" is between the specialization's representation in the meta vs. its representation in the population. For example, a specialization makes up 3% of all players in the population, but 6% in the meta, which means that spec's ratio is 6% / 3% = 2.
      Furthermore, the site defines the "population" as all keys level 2 through 15 and the "meta" as keys 16 and above. Based on that, we break down specs into tiers based on their meta ratio as follows:
      S-Tier: Ratio of at least 1.5. A-Tier: Ratio between 1 and 1.5. B-Tier: Ratio between 0.5 and 1. C-Tier: Ratio below 0.5, but greater than 0. F-Tier: Ratio of 0 (the spec isn't present in the high-level bin at all). Spec Tier List for Mythic+
      S-Tier
      Fire Mage - 2.02 ratio Balance Druid - 1.75 ratio Outlaw Rogue - 1.74 ratio Vengeance Demon Hunter - 1.64 ratio A-Tier
      Holy Paladin - 1.37 ratio Restoration Shaman - 1.36 ratio Windwalker Monk - 1.33 ratio Marksmanship Hunter - 1.28 ratio Brewmaster Monk - 1.15 ratio Fury Warrior - 1.14 ratio Discipline Priest - 1.08 ratio Affliction Warlock - 1.08 ratio B-Tier
      Guardian Druid - 0.89 ratio Unholy Death Knight - 0.75 ratio Shadow Priest - 0.73 ratio Havoc Demon Hunter - 0.72 ratio Restoration Druid - 0.71 ratio Blood Death Knight - 0.61 ratio Protection Paladin - 0.53 ratio Holy Priest - 0.5 ratio Elemental Shaman - 0.5 ratio C-Tier
      Enhancement Shaman - 0.47 ratio Protection Warrior - 0.41 ratio Mistweaver Monk - 0.41 ratio Feral Druid - 0.41 ratio Survival Hunter - 0.39 ratio Destruction Warlock - 0.39 ratio Frost Mage - 0.37 ratio Retribution Paladin - 0.35 ratio Assassination Rogue - 0.35 ratio Frost Death Knight - 0.31 ratio Subtlety Rogue - 0.31 ratio Arcane Mage - 0.31 ratio Arms Warrior - 0.30 ratio Demonology Warlock - 0.28 ratio Beast Mastery Hunter - 0.19 ratio
