Profession Changes in Dragonflight Patch 10.0.5

Patch 10.0.5 introduces a slew of Profession updates.

  • All Professions have had their requirements to unlock specializations reduced. Professions with 3 specialization trees have reduced their final unlock to Profession Level 75 (was 100). All Professions with 4 specialization trees have had their final two unlocks reduced to Profession Level 60/75 (was 75/100).
  • Portals from Overload Titan-Touched nodes should more consistently take you to a new location.
  • Overload Elemental Deposit and Overload Elemental Herb has been slightly redesigned — Overloading is now taught to all Miners and Herbalists after collecting their first Elemental-themed node. Mastering the Elements unlock point now restores Overload cooldown reduction functionality.
  • Profession requirements for many transmog-eligible pieces have been adjusted or removed. Most items that previously required a Profession other than Engineering no longer has a requirement. Engineering items have reduced their skill requirement to 1 of their appropriate expansion. Gnomish and Goblin Engineering are no longer required to transmog any Engineering appearances. The acquisition method for all of these items remains unchanged.
  • Warlords of Draenor crafted item appearances are back. You can buy recipes for Optional Reagents for each relevant Profession from the vendors in your Garrison or in Ashran that cost Secret of [Profession] tomes, the old daily cooldown craft. Use the Optional Reagents when crafting Warlords of Draenor crafted gear to convert them into the new appearance.
  • Legacy Leatherworking patterns for Heavy Scorpid gear once again drop from Blackrock Orcs in the Burning Steppes.
  • Pattern: Raptor Hide Harness Icon Pattern: Raptor Hide Harness and Pattern: Raptor Hide Belt Icon Pattern: Raptor Hide Belt can now both be learned by players of either faction.
  • The legacy recipe for Goldthorn Tea now drops in Razorfen Downs.
  • The Crafting UI Panel has been updated with a track recipe checkbox available for recrafting.
  • "Open All" for crafting order mail will auto-delete the mail after receiving the item.
  • You can reject orders by right-clicking on them under the Personal Orders tab.
  • A confirmation dialogue will appear when placing crafting orders for items the player cannot equip.
