Recommended Posts

We've just updated our WoW Classic guide section with a General Professions Guide, where you can find detailed information about each Profession, and a Goldmaking Guide, which offers insight into the most profitable Professions in WoW Classic.

General Professions Guide

In the General Professions Guide, you will learn more about leveling Professions in WoW Classic, Profession ranks, and types of Professions, with links to the individual guides.

Professions Tier List 

Our Goldmaking Guide comes with a Tier List of Professions and we rank them based on profitability.

To learn more about the rationale behind our ranking, check out the guide here.

Just worth mentioning this, because all the guides out there are based off private servers or even the old vanilla wow.

If you wish to change profession specialisation, say from Tribal LW to Elemental LW, it is possible in Classic.

You need to go to Tanaris, find the NPC called "Narain Soothfancy" in the hut just up from the other huts you gets quests from in Steamwheedle Port (East Tanaris) and on the table is a book called "Soothsaying for Dummies".

Click the book and you're given a choice of switching specialisations for your profession.

 

I did this today, changed from Tribal to Elemental LW.

It costs no gold to do so, vaguely remember back in vanilla that it cost 150g or something similar.

 

If you look for an answer on wowhead or reddit etc., people are saying you cannot change specialisations, it's not true, you can and it's free.

 

Anyway, there you go.

Worth mentioning, Eng is probably the most used prof for end game. Nearly every class can get something useful out of it for both pvp and pve. 

Indeed. I am guessing this tier list will get updated in the coming weeks.

I legitimately didn't know about this! thanks for bringing it to my attention. I'm a LW on my rogue and soon approaching it.

Worth also mentioning that even though tailoring/BS sucks to level, isn't profitable etc, every guild will want some for creating fire resist (MC/BWL), and later frost resist gear.

The ranking is based purely on the gold they generate, not the usefulness of them in PvP/PvE. We have advice on that in the class guides instead, since a ranking wouldn't make much sense for all classes.

Ya do to the flexibility of the different things you can craft it should be a little higher, also the only reason why mostly skinning is top tier is mostly the early gold advantage and how good it still is late game. The only reason I have tailoring on priest is because of one late game item.

      World Buffs are a very important part of the Classic raiding experience, both for the top-end, speed running guilds as well as a lot of the less hardcore ones, and the buffs themselves are somewhat controversial as they require a lot of additional coordination and effort, as well as pressure as 1 wipe will get a whole lot of people angry.

      One of three original World of Warcraft designers, Kevin Jordan, aka "the guy that designed all the spells in the game", has been talking about the buffs and how they came to be, as well as exploring why they're so important in Classic right now.


      "Just a bunch of dudes making content that was cool" is just the greatest thing to hear, as it showcases both the perhaps more creative way the game was developed and the problems that come with that more "free" way of doing things. He does also talk about logs and how he understands why players would use them there, and the discussion in the reddit thread is also an interesting read, going into the fast 1 night BWL and MC clears that utilize the buffs to be efficient etc.

      The Blackwing Lair speed runs continue unabated, and there's been a few more fastest runs, with Progress claiming the most recent/current record, taking only 20 minutes and 30 seconds to get Nefarian and co. down! Their run was actually a massive jump both from the current second place holders SALAD BAKERS (1 min 10 sec) and from the last one we covered, GUSY (1 min 23 sec), so this one will probably stay up there for a while. To make things even better, they conjured up a little celebration video as well, with some of their... ahem, "fans" "cheering" them on at the start. The video itself is pretty short, with highlights of the kills and a pretty damn good soundtrack as well, so let's take a look.
      This particular speed required over half the raid to be warriors (21, in fact), and also starred 6 priests, 5 rogues, 3 paladins, 2 hunters, a warlock, a mage and a druid. Here are the current standings in the seemingly most prestigious ongoing race in Classic at the moment, with the top 10 being separated by all of 3 minutes:

      We have another South Park Live to Win champion on our hands! DrFive had taken it upon himself to ignore every non-boar mob in Classic and get to max level as close to how the boys from South Park did as possible (but obviously couldn't quite stay in Elwynn Forest only). This isn't the first time someone has taken up and completed this very weird challenge, as it was conquered on retail back in 7.3.5, but that one took a trip to Outland to finish things up.

      This Classic attempt took almost 10 days played, 10,000 boars downed, 30 deaths and 22 million damage, but it was a success in the end, so let's take a look at the final moments, as well as some details on how he got there (including a whole lot of rested XP, help in pre-clearing Razorfen Downs etc):
       
      The entire journey will be uploaded to youtube, and there's already 36 videos up there to check out if you really like to see boars die.

      In case you don't feel like checking days' worth of footage, there's this theorycrafting video from before Classic's release on the very subject, and while DrFive didn't necessarily keep to this exact path, it's still a fun video to check out!

      Congrats to DrFive on this very weird challenge, and to everyone that keeps doing weird things in all of WoW, as we love seeing things like this make the game feel more alive. Also, make sure to re-watch the Make Love, not Warcraft South Park episode that started all of this.

      It seems the crowding has been (somewhat) alleviated, as Blizzard have disabled layering on all US servers, after having enabled it for select servers around a month ago. It remains to be seen when the same will come for EU servers.
      Layers (source)
      At this time, we’re contracting from two layers to one on all realms in this region that were layered.
      As we’ve constantly watched and analyzed realm populations over the last few weeks, we’ve seen enough of a recent trend to justify returning to the intended population arrangement for each realm. At the same time, we’ve unlocked any realms that were locked for new character creation.
      All Paid Character Transfer restrictions have been left in place. We’re going to continue to use our ability to disable that service as a stopgap, and we’ll let you know when we open or close it further.

      Nefarian and co. are having a really bad month, as APES' previous speed clear record has been taken down! The previous fastest guild had already taken 26 seconds of the time we had previously reported, and the new champions GUSY have taken another 20 seconds off that, which may not sound like much, but when your clear is that fast to begin with, it's still pretty impressive.
      Shockingly, the raid had 18 warriors and 7 rogues, with the rest of the DPS classes fighting it out for 6 slots, and the priests also joined in the DPS fun with a whole lot of smites as well! Congrats to GUSY on the run, and we're sure to see even more extremely close clears, as the guilds now compete in terms of seconds.
