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:

Over the weekend the Lunar Festival rolled back into town. I know many of you are busy working the Elders for your Achievements, but let us not forget that there are recipes waiting to be had as well. Specifically Tailors and Engineers can benefit from the quests by collecting Coins of Ancestry as they visit each Elder. In Moonglade you can purchase goodies from the vendors there including patterns to make the Lunar Festival wear and fireworks schematics for Engineers. So if you haven’t gotten these recipes in a previous year, now is your chance!
Over the weekend I posted the new Tailoring recipes from the trainer in Beta. These recipes are still in fairly rough form, some of the items have no stats on them and a few appear to have ingredients that are unlikely to make it to release. Most of the Frostwoven items have no stats, although the set bonus looks Healer-oriented to me. The stats of the Duskweave set are kind of all over the place, one piece might be Stam/Crit/Spellpower and another is Stam/Spirit/Spellpower. Hopefully both sets will be updated with more coherent stats, since I assume they intend one to be DPS stats and the other healing stats. The Black Duskweave and Mystic Frostwoven seem to suffer from similar problems, either no stats or wildly varying stats.
Just a quick FYI to let you all know that I updated our Tailoring Guide with new Burning Crusade information. I finally bit the bullet and took up Tailoring on one of my toons – with WotLK coming down the pike I want to have all tradeskills covered. The upside is that Tailoring is fairly easy to level, which I’m sure is why I haven’t had any complaints about our outdated Tailoring guide.
After checking every couple of days for the new Tailoring patterns on the test realm, finally they are there today. There are three new patterns sold by Haughty Modiste in Steamwheedle Port. They are novelty clothing and require 245-250 skill and mageweave cloth to craft. (more…)
In case you haven’t noticed yet, the Lunar Festival went up this past Tuesday after maintenance. For those new to WoW, there are some special recipes available during this event. The only professions offered are Tailoring and Engineering, but if you have one of those professions you’re in luck. Tailors could potentially even make money now by crafting the “festival” wear and selling them on the Auction to folks who don’t want to bother with coin collecting to buy their own. Engineers probably won’t be able to take advantage, since the fireworks recipes they can purchase are likely canceled out by the fireworks vendors associated with the event. Even so, if you’re an Engineer this is a great time to beef up your recipe collection. (more…)
Well once my partner in crime, Wildark, saw how handily my 70 rogue acquired the Green Winter Clothes recipe, he immediately proposed that we try to get it for our actual Tailoring toon – Fimbulwinter. Only problem? Fimbulwinter is a 37 mage. Personally, I saw no way to achieve this. Even if we use the disguise and waltz right past a bunch of Horde players, how is a level 37 going to avoid the guards? Luckily Wildark had a plan.
A few days ago I challenged my readers to confirm the plausibility of Alliance characters acquiring the Green Winter outfit recipe from the Horde vendors. No one took me up on that, but I decided that having my own level 70 rogue, I should attempt to infiltrate Orgrimmar myself. I didn’t actually believe this was a workable task, but I pushed onward regardless of the self-endangerment factor. The things I do for you people!
