    Battle for Azeroth Professions Overview

    Battle for Azeroth Professions Overview
    As with any expansion, Battle for Azeroth offers a variety of new recipes and items to craft or gather.

    • Kul Tiran and Zandalari Professions are now available to learn and level!
    • Each profession is separated into expansions and leveled separately from one another.
    • Each expansion has its own leveling path for items from that expansion, similar to the Mists of Pandaria cooking.
    • You can choose to go back and level older expansion crafting, or you can simply level the current expansion.
    • This allows you to craft items with current expansion materials without needing older expansion materials to level.
    • You can still go back and level older expansion crafting skills as well.
    • To clarify further, an example of this means that you can level your "Cataclysm Tailoring" by crafting Cataclysm patterns, but this doesn't stop you from progressing your "Kul Tiran / Zandalari Tailoring" with the new expansion's patterns.
    • First Aid is gone and its patterns are redistributed into Tailoring and Alchemy. Your First Aid crafts will have to be relearned in their respective new profession.


    New Bind on Pickup Rare Crafting Reagent
    Battle for Azeroth Professions will carry on with the Blood of Sargeras and Obliterum system that was implemented in Legion. There are three new bind on pickup reagents that are utilized in crafting this time around.

    • Expulsom - Recovered from breaking down gear in the Scrapper, Battle for Azeroth's rendition of the Obliterum Forge. You can also receive it from certain transmutes.
    • Hydrocore - Looted from Battle for Azeroth dungeons.
    • Sanguicell - Looted from Battle for Azeroth raids.


    The Scrapper
    The Scrapper is the new Obliterum Forge in Battle for Azeroth. There has been a significant change, however, in that you can now scrap all equipable gear for crafting reagents that correspond to the item. This is also the main source of Expulsom.

    All stores are now sold out of Mountain Dew and Pizza Pops.

    Also, Normies can now be among non-neck-beards... the next few weeks will be glorious!

    Maybe this is a stupid question but is that countdown correct? I thought the release date was 08/14 but that countdown ends this evening (08/13, 6:00pm US Eastern). Am I missing something?

    Oh, of course. I remember hearing about the worldwide release awhile back, but I'd forgotten about it. Thanks for the reminder.
    Feel like a bit of an idiot now, but glad to be able to give BfA a try one day sooner than I'd thought.
