We've already taken a look at the new tools of the trade profession quests coming in 8.1.5, but now it's time for the official preview. Each profession gets their own tool at the end of the quest line and we get to take a look at them up close here, as well as get some additional info on their functionality.

looks great for gear crafters . alch one is extremely  disappointing to me 

After seeing these items in action the Alch one is straight up just the best one.   Being able to increase your chance on multiprocs of flask and such is insane, and sometimes you can just get a free cauldron.  

 

JC one also seems good, and then i guess the LW hammer is good.  everything else seems so meh.

The whole profession thing needs overhauling.

Bring back that uniqueness of crafting with the odd lucky souls with a recipe that people want, not this oh look everyone one can make it leading into a battle on the AH devaluing anything of worth that can be crafted. 

Bring back world drop recipes and grinding for them, let the lucky 1's and those that want to earn money do so.

Based on long years of crafting for AH, my experience is that extremely rare world drops only benefit bots and Chinese loot hunters, so no - let's not bring them back. Actually there are some world drop recipees in the game currently - but with reasonably good drop rates that doesn't makes them frustrating to obtain. As long as they are only mounts and cosmetic items I don't mind, but end-game recipees should not be obtainable via soulles grinding.

sure its only a 1 in 4 chance, but none of the others actually do anything that great.  

 

Tailoring item is trash

Blacksmithing one is meh, repairing one item an hour is not super great

the feather is trash, healing from dead bodies is ok, but the contracts are bad

everything the Engi one spawns is bad

The enchanting one is passable only because you get bonus mats

the hammer is decent.

JC item saves you thousands of gold

Alch item can make you thousands of extra gold or supply your raid team with tons more flask/pots

      Black Dragonscale Backpack is a cosmetic item sold by Wrathion in Patch 8.3. The cloak is actually a Wrathion-themed backpack that can be used for transmog.
      The backpack is very similar to the Vulpera Heritage Rucksack, used in the Vulpera Heritage Armor in Visions of N'Zoth.

      When you unlock Horrific Visions in the upcoming content update, you can talk to Wrathion who sells various items for Coalesced Visions and Corrupted Mementos including:
      Vessel of Horrific Visions for 10,000 Coalesced Visions; Gouged Eye of N'Zoth for 25,000 Corrupted Mementos; Black Dragonscale Backpack (new) for 40,000 Corrupted Mementos; Wicked Swarmer for 100,000 Corrupted Mementos. Related 8.3 Build 32805 News
      Veteran of the Fourth War Flavor Spell for 2nd Generation of Death Knights Vulpera Bag of Tricks Racial Mistweaver Monk Essence Changes Death Knight Eyes Update
    • By Stan
      Veteran of the Fourth War is a new spell intended for the second generation of Death Knights created in Patch 8.3. The flavor spell is in place to reflect the end of the Battle for Azeroth War Campaign in front of the Gates of Orgrimmar ([error]). It works exactly as Veteran of the Third War for existing Death Knights.
      Players who pre-ordered Shadowlands will be able to create Allied Race and Pandaren Death Knights in Visions of N'Zoth. There will be a new intro with Bolvar and Blizzard has updated their eye glow multiple times on 8.3 PTR to bring it more in line with the Lich King's eyes.

      Vulpera Bag of Tricks Racial Mistweaver Monk Essence Changes Death Knight Eyes Update
    • By Stan
      The Vulpera Bag of Tricks racial works just like Mole Machine, allowing your character to discover new harmful and helpful tricks in the open world. In this week's 8.3 PTR build, 3 new tricks have been added.
      When reaching into your Bag of Tricks, you can pick a helpful trick to heal your allies or a harmful one to deal damage to your enemies.

      New characters start with Healing Vial and Corrosive Vial. This week, Blizzard added Holy Relic, Flames of Fury, and Sinister Shadows on 8.3 PTR. We will be able to discover up to 13 tricks in the future according to WoWDB.
      Helpful Tricks
      Healing Vial - Heals a friend for [ Greater of {270% of Spell Power} or {270% of Attack Power * pctD * (1 + 0)} ] Nature. Share the wealth! Holy Relic (new)- Heals a friend for 28. Share the wealth! Harmful Tricks
      Corrosive Vial - Splash your enemy with corrosive fluid, dealing [ Greater of {180% of Spell Power} or {180% of Attack Power * pctD * (1 + 0)} ] Nature damage. A good reason not to drop your bag! Flames of Fury (new) - Blast your enemy with the FLAMES, dealing [ Greater of {180% of Spell Power} or {180% of Attack Power * pctD * (1 + 0)} ] Fire damage. Sinister Shadows (new) - Torment the enemy with sinister power, dealing [ Greater of {180% of Spell Power} or {180% of Attack Power * pctD * (1 + 0)} ] Shadow damage. Check out our Visions of N'Zoth hub to learn more about Patch 8.3.

      While Shadowlands is looking really good and most of the community seems really hyped for it, the intro cinematic was a bit more divisive. With Sylvanas trampling Bolvar with relative ease, a lot of players have been voicing their dissatisfaction over how the fight went, or at the very least at how it was presented, with the Banshee Queen seeming a tad overpowered. But in comes Kirill Stepanov with his re-imagining of how the fight went down, with Bolvar earning his title this time around:

      Now sure, technically Sylvanas could still get out of that particular situation, but even if she did and won in the end, we really got no feel for Bolvar's power (not to mention the army at his command), so a bit of a bigger struggle would have been nice and this piece really showcases that. As you'd imagine the image is very popular on the WoW reddit and it would be nice if Blizzard took note of the, ahem, one-note direction some of the story elements are going. Sure, they have to set up the Shadowlands expansion somehow and cinematics can't last 10+ minutes, but just making things happen because they need to for the plot to progress is really bottom-of-the-barrel storytelling and hopefully the next expansion will be above that.
      Here's the cinematic itself, to remind us of how it actually went:
      Also, let's take a look at a few other impressive art pieces from Kirill Stepanov:

      "Survivors"

      "Start of Battle for Azeroth"

      "The Lord of the Infinite"

      We have an upcoming fix for the new Spirit of Preservation essence on the 8.3 PTRand how it interacts with Mistweaver Monks' Vivify. Apparently the way it affects all healing from Vivify, both primary and other targets of the spell, has been changed to only affect the primary target, as was originally intended and as it works with other similar spells. The change will arrive in an upcoming PTR build.

      Mistweavers are also receiving additional changes with 8,3 which you can find in our coverage of all the class changes for the patch.
      Mistweaver (source)
      As a note for Mistweaver monks, a bug was recently fixed with regards to Spirit of Preservation ’s minor Essence effect and how it interacts with Vivify .
      Prior to this bug fix, both the increased healing amount and critical strike chance from the minor Essence applied to all healing effects of Vivify, not just the primary target healing. This wasn’t intended. The essence should only be affecting the primary Vivify target’s healing value and crit chance, similar to how it works with something like Flash Heal or Healing Surge . A future PTR build should have this bug fix in it.
