There’s not a lot to report from the Test Realm yet, just a handful of new recipes have trickled out so far. Since this patch isn’t really about anything other than Ony 2.0, I wouldn’t expect a ton of profession goodies either. I don’t know what they have in mind, but I think the most interesting item is the new concept for Leatherworking drums and the new group scrolls.

I’m so tickled that Jon LeCraft was the presenter of the Professions information on the WoW panel – woot! Some day I’d like to have an actual conversation with him to ask all my burning questions about crafting, but for now this will have to suffice. <I’m SUCH a nerd!> Now let’s get to the goodies:
I wasn’t able to find enough data for some of the other tradeskills on the 3.2 Test Realm, so I’m just going to combine this information into one post. Here are some screenshots I took of new recipes in Leatherworking, Inscription and Engineering, plus a couple of items for Alchemy and Jewelcrafting: (more…)
Leatherworkers aren’t getting as much love as perhaps some other professions are, but they will have a few tidbits to look forward to. First, now would be a very good time to start making those epic armor kits if you’re in any position to do so. Why? (more…)
Some of you may recall that Leatherworking was a big pain for me on the Beta servers, I tried to level it and gave up around 430. So when it came to level again after Launch, I wasn’t exactly hyped about the prospect. However, last week I was able to make my final push from 425-440. I have to give credit to BRK for prodding me on this, his post about Leatherworking helped me see the light at the end of the tunnel :)
As promised, tonight I worked on Kaliope’s leatherworking skill and took lots of notes :) First I had to get my hands on some leather, so I spent about 3 hours killing moose-like creatures in the Borean Tundra. I collected about 8 stacks of leather in that time and got my skinning all the way to 450.
Since we don’t have any new waves of info coming from the Beta yet this week, I thought I’d put together all the little bits of news I’ve gotten from our testers that have been sitting in my email box:
This afternoon I worked on the new Leatherworking recipes for WotLK and I have to say…. they’re kind of a mess. First: the pricing is all over the place. The trainer recipes start at 350 skill and the first four recipes cost 11.4 gold each. The next five recipes (still 350 skill) cost 5.7 gold each. At 360 they go back up to 13.3 gold, followed by 15.2 gold for the 370 recipes and the 375 recipes. Does this look funky to anyone else, or just OCD Kaliope?
