Optional Crafting Reagents in Shadowlands

Recommended Posts

47738-new-profession-recipes-in-visions-

You can add up to three optional reagents to crafted items in Shadowlands to guarantee specific secondary stats, main stat procs, increase their item level, and more.

Optional Reagents

In Shadowlands, you can customize the final output of an item craft by selecting from a variety of Optional Reagents to change the stat outcome of your items. You can fill 2 slots, 1 slot or none, according to the tooltip, but there are 3 slots on Alpha right now. 

Note that the system is early in testing, so expect new optional reagents to be added in future builds.

I hope that this is the opener for a fresh professionsrework and more use from one profession to another and this, at least in my mind, could lead to more trading.

Alchemy effects don't seem well thought through - would you like something that actually increases the power of the item, or something that saves you a very small amount of gold?

At a meta level, all this really does is take itemisation back to where it was in TBC - you have a base item that's no use by itself, and you have to plug in various gems/enchants/shield spikes/weaponstones/armor patched etc to make it worth wearing. However, this variant of the process takes the choice away from the wearer and puts the onus on the crafter to try and guess what the customer wants.

If you imagine you instead have a system where the crafter makes an item, and then the buyer plugs in whatever they need from the other professions, it all seems a bit less revolutionary. 

Good luck to Blizz if they can make it work though.  I suspect people will very quickly work out the optimal combination of reagents (3x +ilvl if allowed, otherwise 1x +ilvl, 1x stat proc, 1x something else) and it'll just end up as a make-work thing that crafters have to do to make a saleable item.  Either that or crafted weapons/armor will disappear from the AH altogether, and instead the person wanting the item will pick the combination of knick-knacks they want, assemble the ingredients and then hire the crafter to make it.

      Here's a video covering everything coming in the War Within pre-patch event on July 30th.
      Radiant Echoes, the pre-patch event, will begin on July 30, based on the splash screen. We covered the whole event in great detail, but for those who need a reminder:
      You must complete a short quest that leads you to the Dalaran Chamber where you can teleport to Dustwallow March, Searing Gorge, and Dragonblight. When a Radiant Echo is active, you must port to the zones, slay Lingering Memories and "Remembred" mobs to gather Residual Memories that you can turn in for rewards. The whole event ends in slaying Remembered Onyxia, Remembered Ragnaros, or Remembered Lich King, based on the zone you're in. Rewards include Warbound ilvl 480 gear, mounts, battle pets, bags, and more. You can find the quartermaster either in the Dalaran Chamber or in each of the zones. The event will most likely be available until the TWW Early Access begins on August 22 or when the expansion launches on August 26. For more details check out our detailed preview of Radiant Echoes, but you should also check out MrGM's latest video because the whole event has been bugged on both Beta and the PTR for me and I couldn't get a single Lingering Memory to spawn.

      The War Within pre-patch event will start on July 30th!
      Blizzard hasn't officially announced the release date for the War Within pre-patch, but the latest splash screen suggests that Radiant Echoes, the War Within pre-patch event begins on July 30, 2024.
      This would give players four weeks to join in before the new expansion officially drops on August 26 (or August 22 for Early Access holders).
      We expect the pre-patch to hit live servers on or before July 30!
      Check out the full splash screen in all its glory!
