The Dragonflight expansion for WoW is amazing as new professions make crafting a pleasure. There is so much to do, it can increase your engagement and also make you stand out among other crafters in Azeroth. Don’t worry there is something for the Alchemists too. This guide will show you how to do Crafting Alchemy work in WoW: Dragonflight.
How Professions Work in WoW Dragonflight
The biggest change in the professions of WoW Dragonflight is how Crafting works. It is important to be familiar with the following concepts.
- Crafting Orders
- Professions Specialization
- Quality of an item and its Effects
- Crafting Stats
Other than Crafting Also, you should learn more about Phials Alchemy.
This allows you place an order to have almost any item crafted using Dragon Isles crafting techniques. There are three options to place an order.
- Public: If you place a Public Order, you must also supply the reagents required by the crafter to create your item.
- Guild: It is up to the Crafter & and the Requester to decide who provides the reagents.
- Personal: Again, it is up to the Crafter & and the Requester to decide who provides the reagents.
There are exceptions to the provision of these reagents. It depends on what equipment or item the requestor is using, the amount of reagents required might vary. This applies to Soulbound items, for example.
After placing the order, the requester must pay the craftsman. They will then receive the item by mail.
This feature is useful for crafters because they can focus on a specific area of crafting. This is important because you can specialize in a particular area if you have another crafter in the guild. For example, you might be an armorsmith but your guildmate could be a weaponsmith. These are the four areas in which you can focus your crafting professions:
- Speziality Smithing
- Hammer Control
The crafting stats are passive and there are four crafting stats.
- Inspiration: You have a chance of crafting the recipe with additional skill.
- Resourcefulness: There is a n% chance of you using less reagents while crafting the recipe.
- Multicraft: There is a n% chance you will create additional items by crafting the recipe. This stat is only applicable to stackable items.
- Crafting Speed: You have a n% chance of making the recipe quicker.
Quality of the item and its effects
Each piece of equipment or item crafted is going to have some level of quality. This quality is distinct from its rarity. Tiers range from 1 to 5. The higher the quality the more your item level will be. Consumables are also affected by this rule. The more powerful and long-lasting the consumable is, the greater its effect.
Do remember though the low-quality equipment aren’t all that bad and has its own perks. The best part is that they can be purchased at a much lower price.
Your item will reflect the quality of your reagents. Higher-quality basic reagents will give you bonus crafting skills. However, not all basic reagents have the same quality. Here are some examples of reagents that have high quality.
- Qualitative agents are those obtained from primary gathering professions. These include:
- Cloth Bolts
- Metal Alloys
- Reagents that anyone can collect won’t have quality:
The crafting process is also a factor in determining the quality of your equipment. These two factors are taken into consideration when crafting equipment.
- Recipe Difficulty This will allow you to determine how difficult the recipe is, and how many optional ingredients are used.
- Crafting Skill: This is to verify the base skill level of the character in that profession.
The option for Alchemists to become Phials specialists is now available. The Phials work very similarly to Flasks in the game. Phials only require half as many crafting ingredients to make than Flasks. However, their effects are reduced by half.
In addition to the above mentioned changes in professions, players will also be able to find four new crafting stations on the Dragon Isles. These include:
- Engineering Station
- Enchanting Station
- Jewelcrafting Station
- Portable Alchemy Station
Players can also now get equipment specific to their profession. They can even be auto-equipped. The new slots have three more slots, one for tools and two for accessories.
Playing will show you that there are many more professions than what was explained. The above are the essentials you need to know.
This concludes the guide to how Professions work in WoW Dragonflight. You can also check out our other guides while you’re playing this game.
