Optional Crafting Reagents Update: Shadowlands Alpha Build 34199

Recommended Posts

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

Shadowlands comes with a Professions overhaul, allowing you to add up to 3 Optional Crafting Reagents to crafted items to give them specific secondary stats, main stat procs, set 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.

It seems like a very interesting system to play with, for example Frozen Thread, Freezing Diamond and a main stat proc one seems overpowered to a Frost Mage or DK. 

But as all "fun" and experimentable things, also seems hell to balance.

      It seems Blizzard REALLY want us to be caught up with Renown.. even if we've maxed it out the previous week! The Renown catch-up system has been activated as it's the second week of Shadowlands, but players have been reporting getting the catch-up items from various sources, from Mythic0, Heroics and more, despite having been capped to rank 3 last week.
      One interesting discussion this has produced is the fact that you could theoretically reach rank 7 this week, as you'll have plenty of sources to do so, as spotted by Dungalion, Zyxio and many others:

      Source.

      Source.
      As you can see they are at 6 Renown already, with the anima weekly quest still not completed. However, players have reported that this does not work, as the excess Renown is simply lost due to Renown levels actually being hard-capped by default, regardless of how many actual sources you can scrounge up.
      It's possible that this isn't a bug or glitch, but that Blizzard actually intend for us to have more ways of getting our Renown than just the quests, but that seems a little less likely. Currently you can get the "catch-up" items, despite not needing to catch up, from various endgame sources including PvP, Mythics, Heroics and even Callings.
      Another interesting question here is whether you can transfer the extra Renown into the next week, to get a had start/not have to do the quests then.

      The latest wholesome news revolve around a player who sent another person 20K for "accidental ninja-looting" when the Personal Loot system was to blame.
      Reddit user slidewithme helped a player take down the Worldedge Gorger elite in Revendreth and thought he accidentally looted the Loyal Gorger mount because of auto loot being turned on.
      Naturally, slidewithme thought he ninja-looted the mount, so he decided to send the other player 20,000 gold to make up for it.
      Card
      However, the player returned the gold, telling him it was completely fine and that his generosity was truly unmatched.

      Later, other Reddit users explained slidewithme that he didn't ninja loot anything and that the mount drop is based on Personal Loot, meaning it's random for each party/raid member.

      This is one of those issues that you've probably come across yourselves, if you've ever done some random group finder dungeons. Blizzard has put legendary memories as drops from various bosses in dungeons, with relatively low droprates and, as you'd expect, players are immediately leaving after (not) getting their drop.
      While this may not be a huge issue if a DPS drops out, as there's always more waiting in the queue and the additions are pretty fast, when a tank or healer does this, it creates some major problems. A common tactic is to simply go tank or healer for a fast queue to get your DPS legendary memory and then drop. Since some of these legendary memories drop from the first or second bosses, this can be especially frustrating, and even if it's "just" DPS dropping out, sometimes it can be ALL the DPS, and it still messes with the run, despite the relatively short wait time.

      What's worse is that sometimes you get players that need an early, they drop out, you get new ones, and then they either immediately leave because they needed the killed boss or do 1-2 more bosses to get theirs then leave. Then there's the specific dungeon factor, as some dungeons are a nightmare because tanks or healers need their legendaries from non-endbosses there, making places like the Sanguine Depths incredibly frustrating.
      The most annoying thing of all is that Blizzard actually had this EXACT same problem before - and they actually fixed it really fast. Back in Warlords of Draenor there were daily dungeon quests from your Garrison tavern which required a specific boss kill, and players would just leave after it, just like they do now. But in WoD, Blizzard hotfixed the issue very quickly, making it necessary to also kill the endboss of the dungeon to complete the quest. While there isn't really a way to do that exact thing here, simply moving ALL the memories to dungeon enbosses would immediately solve the problem. But it would also very much anger players still farming theirs, as it would extend the time to farm them in LFG but also mess with actual farming setups, like the recent all-Hunter Plaguefall one.

      Players are already coming up with "solutions" to this, however, as one tank explains his strategy:

      There's a very large amount of posts on the subject, with players (rightfully) complaining, especially when tanks and healers are concerned, so don't be one of those that bail as one of those roles in particular. You are after all playing an MMO and affecting other people with your decisions. 
      Legendary recipes that drop from dungeons need to be moved to end of dungeon bosses Blizz, can we make memories drop solely off the last boss? Sincerely, everyone. Legendary farm in Dungeon finder is massive issue Blizzard need to change legendary drops from dungeons, tanks keep leaving Legendary items need to be moved to the last boss Make legendary memories 100% drop rate or fix dungeon queuing. This is absurd. Make all dungeon legendary drops come from the final boss in the dungeon. Having some legendaries drop from the 1st boss and some from the last in dungeons was bad game design And many, MANY more. Hopefully Blizzard hotfixes the issue soon, as this is bound to continue throughout the expansion, with alts coming in all the time.

      Well this happened significantly faster than expected! Many players have been complaining about Covenant switching, even before Shadowlands went live, and there was plenty of speculation about how/if Blizzard would fix it. It turned out they stuck to their guns and kept the system restrictive for switching, and had quite a lot of fallout from the decision, as the switching part was very bugged at launch. Well, it seems it's still bugged now, but this time in an awesome way!
      Angelicus07 was a victim/winner of a very specific Covenant swapping bug which happened after a crash, as he actually got to keep his old powers (both signature and class abilities) and gained the new ones - meaning he has all 4 from Necrolords and Venthyr!
      Unfortunately for Angelicus07, he's not really having the fun you'd imagine, as the bug also broke his progression in his new Covenant:

      It's actually a very interesting bug in general, as it might just be one of those random things, but it also might indicate potential plans for the future of the expansion. Could we actually be getting more than 1 Covenant later down the line? It would actually make a lot of sense lore and story-wise, as we'll need all we can get to defeat the Jailer, and inter-Covenant cooperation is a big part of the individual Covenant campaigns.
      Now whether that is actually likely is tricky to say, as balancing even one set of abilities will be a challenge, let alone two. It certainly would be a very cool thing to do to ramp up player power later on in the expansion, similar to how we got Essences and Corrupted items in BfA, but in a more organic way.

      If you're farming the Avowed reputation and have tons of Crumbling Pride Extractors in your Mail, here is a macro to help you out!
      Tamevarlor created a useful macro for all Avowed farmers whose Mailbox looks like this.

      You need to drop the macro on any hotkey and press it near a Mailbox while using the "Open All" button. It's still somewhat time-consuming, according to the author, but still faster than having to delete the items one by one manually.
      Crumbling Pride Predators Macro
      /run for b=0,4 do for s=1,36 do n=GetContainerItemLink(b,s);if n and string.find(n,"Crumbling Pride Extractors") then PickupContainerItem(b,s);DeleteCursorItem();end;end;end; Source: Reddit
