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

      The Lost Codex interviewed Steve Danuser and Morgan Day, and we learned more about the option to transmog each shoulder separately.
      Morgan Day revealed that the feature is probably still on the table, but some shoulders were not designed to be used separately, and they want to avoid clipping, which is probably the reason why Blizzard scrapped the option for Shadowlands launch.
      (Source)
      Early in the Beta, we saw that there was potential for individual shoulder transmog pieces, which sparked a lot of interest in the community, but it never made it to live in 9.0. Is that still on the table? Can you comment on individual shoulder transmogging and if it's coming or not?
      Morgan Day: This is a great question. I will follow up on this one because I know it was something that we were aiming to get done for Shadowlands launch, but that one in particular we knew might have run into some technical issues.
      There's a lot of history to draw from without transmog sets, and there were some very asymmetrical shoulder pieces that were crafted with never thinking towards having them transmogged individually.
      I think it is a really cool feature that we know players are excited about, and I imagine we're still doing our best to make progress towards that.
      You can watch the whole interview below. The video starts playing at where they talk about transmogging each shoulder separately.

      This is one of those "obviously not what we hope it is, but maaaybe?" things as Henry Cavill, who was part of many discussions about who should play Arthas last year, just posted an interesting image to his Instagram, as spotted by Warchief_Hammerhands.
      This is 99.99% Witcher-related, and the caption is just a tease (whether it's actually aimed at the Arthas hype or not), but we have seen the actor actually talk about the role of the Lich King previously. In several Instagram replies to one of the many fan photoshops of himself as Arthas, Cavill did seem to show some solid interest in the role, and it all started with an emoji response to this post:
      And here's the complex response, with Blizzard getting tagged:

      He then engaged in some fan interaction, starting with a nod at the previous rumors of him being the next Bond:
           
      And great response to a fair warning related to Cavill's missing his Man of Steel casting call because he was playing WoW:
       
        

      Many have actually commented that Cavill might be a bit too old for Arthas at this point, but considering the events on 9.1 and where the story might be going, who's to say an older, post-Maw Arthas isn't in the cards? It seems like a perfect stunt commercial type thing to tease a potentially bigger project like a TV series or even movie. After all, Metzen himself approves of Cavill in the role!
      But, getting back down to earth, this seems much more Witcher-related, with Season 2 of the show  still being shot, as Covid slowed things down. The Instagram post is probably just a tease that they're still shooting the show (possibly the finale, as the script seems to be relevant) and we're just getting too excited. But why shouldn't we get excited? A Warcaft TV show is just too good of a fit, even an animated one, so any movement we can stir up there can only be positive!

      We're sure you're all Cavilled-out at this point, but there's another development in the fan/Chris Metzen/Christie Golden casting of Superman as Arthas, as the man (of steel) himself has replied to a recent photoshop of him as the Lich King over on Instagram. We start off with two cute/amazing fan interactions, as someone in the thread asked him what his WoW name was and the reply was pure gold:
           
      The second was a fair warning related to Cavill's missing his Man of Steel casting call because he was playing WoW:
        
      And finally there's the big one, even thought it's small, as Cavill tagged Blizzard with a thinking emoji:

      And while usually with social media posts like this you'd assume they were made by some PR intern or similar, considering Cavill's love of WoW and the specificity of some of the replies, we can be pretty sure he was the one responding. Here's the full Instagram post:
      And just in case you missed it the first time, here's that story of Cavill missing the call that he got the Superman part:

      The Great Vault raid loot requirements have finally changed on the 9.0.5 PTR in this week's Build 37705.
      As we reported last week, Blizzard planned on changing the raid loot requirements for the weekly chest from 3/7/10 bosses down to 3/6/9 bosses, but Blizzard did not implement the change until this week's Build arrived on the 9.0.5 PTR.
      Here's the updated Great Vault tab with the new requirements.
