Patch 8.2 - Professions Overview
Much like Patch 7.3 in Legion, Rise of Azshara offers a variety of new recipes and items to craft or gather.

  • All Kul Tiran and Zandalari professions have an additional 25 points added to the cap, for a total of 175 from 150.
  • New recipes have been added to each profession that require these new 25 points.
  • All gathering professions have new materials to collect.
  • There are items you can find in Nazjatar that unlock specific profession focused events. Activating these events will have you complete a task and provide a bounty of materials or benefits for your profession.


The Abyssal Focus
In Nazjatar, crafters will build up a new crafting station called the Abyssal Focus. This forge is used to craft the new raid gar instead of using consumables from the raid such as Sanguicell.

  • A series of quests increase the rank of the focus.
    • Restored Abyssal Focus - Crafts up to Item level 410 gear
    • Empowered Abyssal Focus - Crafts up to Item level 425 gear
    • Radiating Abyssal Focus - Crafts up to Item level 440 gear
  • Quests
  • Once you unlock the next rank, you can craft any gear at the focus of the allowed item level or below.

    175-150=25

    ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    This is just more BFA. Why would anyone come back?

    Urgh.. I hate how they essentially made all potion/flask stocks useless with this patch. If they had at least given an option to upgrade the old shit. Another reminder to hoard materials, not the final product in WoW..

    Would you prefer they keep the same mediocre ones instead?

    Could have just buffed the old ones and made a new cheaper recipe for something that is a consumable. The issue of run-away stat inflation is not my problem, that is on Blizzard in the first place.
