I'd just like some new recipes, i. e. shields, bows, staves, etc. stuff that would fit into existing professions.

Bows are so unlikely to fit into an existing profession though, even though Engineering already has guns. Perhaps the great bows of the world are more like violins, the ones that have been used for a long time sound the best, so crafting new ones would be quite weak.And staves also wouldn't work without some sort of woodworking profession. Unless there are just staves that are large pieces of metal I suppose.

Ok, I see yer point, perhaps you would need subsets to certain professions. Perhaps something along the lines of Fletching, but pertaining to all types of ranged weapondry.As for entirely metal staves, that I can see, especially looking at some of the higher end druid tanking weapons. I'd want something embued with all kinds of magic and made of adamantine if I were going up against any boss in Outland.Maybe some sort of bizarre woodworking profession to cover both bows and staves, and it would allow arrows as well, of course at that point they'd have to add trees that could be harvested, which seems like it would be a major recode... but it would be neat to have a little woodworking bag, with a hand axe for gathering and a whittling knife to create stuff, and I could see it using a variety of other gatherables as well, leather for bowstrings, light feathers for arrows, metal for reinforced bows, cloth for hilt equivalents and so forth, perhaps even making a bracer enchant for a wrist guard to increase firing rate of bows. Of course, we're just whistling in the dark. Blizz has surely rejected such ideas already.But you've started an entirely new profession in my head and it'll give me all sorts of ideas to play with that'll never see the light of day. Thanks!
