Re: "We didn't feel like we were getting much flexibility from specializations, so they have been removed for all three of these professions. The intent was to help people diversify their profession to feel different from that of other players, but through other professions we've found systems that work better to this end, such as simply making recipes available that you can earn over time."Aw...I always thought specializations were kind of underutilized as it was. I wish they had kept this and made them even more special.I just hope this doesn't mean I'll be doing a daily tailoring and engineering quest. :(

Unfortunately, I take what Bliz said to mean exactly that: all crafting professions will probably get dailies used to buy the top level recipes; like jewelcrafting works now.As the blue said, this allows people to semi-specialize by choosing which recipes they want to buy first. But allows you to get all the recipes eventually.

I always liked specializations too, back in BC the weaponsmith tier weapons were so cool imo. also sad because i spent last weekend grabbing specializations for my alts, two leather workers a blacksmith and a tailor :S

I hope this doesn't mean the Engineering Specializations are being dropped. Gnomish/Goblin Engineering has never had the problems of balance that the LW/BS/Tailoring specializations had, and they actually make engineering more fun. So for the Old Gods' sake I hope they keep Engineering Specialization in.

I can just see the engineering daily now:"Bring him five whizzing gizmos and five gizzing whizmos to Schnozz Kizzler at Fizzler's Nozzle..."Schematic: Crusty, unusable junk. "Equip: Creates an unshakable doubt that the toys weren't really worth it. Use: It really works!"

actually i hope they pull the engineering specials too... i refused to lock myself in to one because i sensed a ling time ago that the others were going to go away. and a prime example of why... ammo...yes I know that ammo is going away in cata but for right now If I had chosen a specialty and i had the wrong ranged weapon on my hunter... I'm screwed. this is exactly why all the specialty stuff needs to go away.

@Hob:Lmfao. Guaranteed Cataclysm quest: Bozzle Cranknozzle wants you to find his Gizmotron Recombobulating Whoopfizzle and return it to Fritz Whizznipper at the Whirling Hoojamabopper crash site. The Gizmotron Recombobulating Whoopfizzle was last seen inside a large pile of animal droppings. The Gizmotron Recombobulating Whoopfizzle will explode at some point during the quest. After searching through the dung, you will have a 30 minute debuff mentioning the foulness of your odor.
