    Re: Build 8770 Changes - Class Skills and Professions

    hmm.. cant wait to see how they will implement adding sockets to items, will it be classed as an enchant??

  3. #3

    Re: Build 8770 Changes - Class Skills and Professions

    No, the item can be enchanted with a classical enchant and socketed at the same time.

    Re: Build 8770 Changes - Class Skills and Professions

    Anyone else find Swordguard Embroidery a little dumb?

    The only situation I can think of it ever being used is a druid who went Tailoring so as to gain access to some healing cloth gear maybe? And decided instead to go Feral and wanted to ignore armor...

    Holy crap, gloves, bracer, 2 swords, and a belt socket?
    I really wonder how much of these are for the "smith only", and whether there'll be items at endgame raids without sockets.

    Blacksmithing would be insanely powerful for rogues otherwise.. surely blizzard doesn't intend that.
    The belt buckle at least looks like a single item that anyone can use. The others though.....

    I also wonder if those sockets will give any stat bonus, or if the socket will be colorless.


    Swordguard Embroidery

    You can only embroider your own cloak and embroidering your cloak will cause it to become soulbound.
    And how many melee classes are tailor..... that seems pretty lame.
    But it does give good hopes at seeing spell power enchants for leatherworking.

    You get an inscription that gives +1 target on your chainheal.
    that's pretty cool so far.

    Rogues, nothing at all yet....

    i know of a few melee's who went tailoring for TBC just for the cloth cool downs to sell. a waste of a profession but they were all alts in the first place. now it looks like they have something they can use if they keep the profession.

    Now tell me, where is "Bind of Pickup" written in it? WHERE?

    edit: to avoid further confusion

    Tailor A creates [Swordguard Embroidery]
    Rogue A opens trade with Tailor A
    Tailor A puts [Swordguard Embroidery] on trade window and accepts
    Rogue A also accepts
    Rogue A uses [Swordguard Embroidery] on cloak
    ???
    Profit

    Re: Build 8770 Changes - Class Skills and Professions

    i think they added the swordguard enchant as a money sink..

    ie: if you want the best melee enchant for cloak, you will have to waste all that gold to level tailoring up, tailor your cloak, and unlearn lol.... money sink ftw

    ..and people want to tell me that enchanting is a magical profession and only magic users should pick it up.. and now we get this crap which is even more absurd. If there will be nothing for melee classes via enchanting I'll write an angry post on the official forums and tell blizzard how angry I am!

    Seems to be the common going at the moment.
    Probably to annoy hardcore raiders.

    Take tailoring to enchant cloak, be a smith to socket items, get enchanting to enchant rings, get jewelcrafting for epic gems, get inscription for it's bonus and leatherworking for drums and leg enchant.

    OMG YOU GUYS CAN'T BE THIS IGNORANT

    you guys know what Runic spellthread is right?
    this thing here: http://www.wowhead.com/?item=24274

    IT'S THE SAME SHIT WITH ONE EXTRA LINE, NOWHERE DOES IT SAY IT'S BOP, YOU CAN TRADE THE ITEM, THE ONLY THING THAT CHANGES IS THAT YOU CAN'T ENCHANT ON TRADE WINDOW AND IF YOU USE IT ON A BOE ITEM IT BECOMES BOP

    please, get some common sense already

    Look at that, we have a little shouting kid here.
    Go here and read this : http://www.mmo-champion.com/index.php?topic=11619.0

    Enjoy.


    ps: It's not confirmed to be an item yet and the wording is the same as the enchanter ring spell. Thus logic deduction indicates that it's tailor only.
