At least you can spend time on your profession. . Blacksmithing is so underwhelming it sucks, everything is trainer learnt at 440 so there isn't even a proper incentive to max it :(

QFT - I got my Blacksmithing to 440, made my 2 shields (one for me, another for a friend) and have half the mats sitting in my bags for the caster mace for my friend, who happens to be a JC and is saving all her tokens to craft my tanking ring first. It honestly sucks the way that BS has no drops other than some greens in the early lvls of wrath, has no way to make BS's unique (bought patterns), and the fact that some weapon styles were 100% neglected makes it one of the worst profession in game. The only reason I kept Blacksmithing is the simple fact that I spent so much time and money to level it in the first place.Yes, JC's got it rough, but at least they can be unique... some professions have all the same recipes and have no way to make them unique.

Agreed, the fact that we as blacksmiths don't even have a tanking weapon available is ridiculous. I really hope they recondier their thinking and offer some more wep/armor smith patterns in the future.I also I agree with the OP, the change not only effects JC's it effects all of us by raising the cost of cut gems as not everyone has the designs for them.

What really bothers me is that I spent over 200 Mithril Bars to become an armorsmith in hopes of good BoP tanking gear - this was some time before I knew *sigh* - and what do I get? Two blue dps plate recipes. Way. To. Go.A lot of professions seem a bit gimped at the moment - some like Alchemy, Blacksmithing and Cooking even offer no reason to get to 450 skill - no recipes up there! *sigh*I just hope they bring more content to the profession front in coming patches.

i totally agree... BS sucks big time... its just so boring... NO dropped recipes(ok there are 4 recipes for green lvl 75 items, great...)NO recipes from reputation at allNO daily quests (or ANY BS-Quests)Yeah, being able to socket items is nice but just isnt any fun at all. And as mentioned the Armorsmith-spec is a total waste of money/effort
