All the World's a Stage: So you want to be a Tailor


This installment of All the World's a Stage is the twenty-seventh in a series of roleplaying guides in which we find out all the background information you need to roleplay a particular race or class (or profession!) well, without embarrassing yourself.

Tailoring is another aspect of Warcraft which people tend to just gloss over without realizing it is an important element of your character's backstory and personality. "I am Zorlastine the wicked Forsaken warlock!" one might say, "I have come to wreak havoc and destruction upon this world! I also sell extremely large bags on the auction house!" Often it's an element that doesn't quite jive with the rest of one's character, but at the same time, nobody really notices. A powerful mage capable of teleportation, massive explosions, and yes, even KNITTING! Makes perfect sense, right?

No it doesn't.

So today we have gathered a few ideas for how to weave your cloth-wearing character's capability to create cloth wearables into the actual story and roleplay of your character. You think making clothes is a tedious profession? A pastime just for old ladies? No, tailoring is an avant-garde artistic activity of the elite, an excellent way for a starving hero to make cash, and even a mystical philosophy all on its own.

Insider Trader: Highlights of Wrath crafting, Tailoring edition


Insider Trader is your inside line on making, selling, buying and using player-made products.

Wrath of the Lich King has changed many things about the professions we all know and sometimes love. Last week, Insider Trader looked at the highlights of the Leatherworking and Blacksmithing professions, showing you what's new, how to plan out your leveling, and what you can look forward to at what points.

This week, Tailoring is up for discussion. There are faction recipes and dropped recipes, as well as highlights from your trainer that you won't want to miss. Here is a quick summary:
  • New and improved exclusive spellthreads for enchanting your pants.
  • A 20-slot bag and a 22-slot bag.
  • A slow flying carpet mount as well as an epic one.
  • Specialty cloth for epic gear.
  • Frost resistance gear.
  • An 8-piece PvP pseudo-set.
  • Exclusive cloak enchants.
  • Special threads that you can sell for a profit.

Patch 2.4.3 eyecandy gallery

If you haven't had an opportunity to log onto the PTR, or you're not the testing type but are still curious about patch 2.4.3, we've added a complete image gallery showing off some of the more interesting visuals from the test realm. From the construction in Stormwind to the new TCG loot, there's some really fun stuff coming our way.

If you havent read the full patch notes yet... well, what are you waiting for? The gallery below has most of the eye candy, but there are a lot of changes worth looking at that aren't quite as photogenic, such as the Cheat Death changes, some quest tweaks and the retuning of Magisters' Terrace.

Click on the first picture in the gallery to start your guided tour of what awaits in Patch 2.4.3!

"Gigantique" and the Gold burn of Patch 2.4.3

It has begun. Anti-inflation measures intended to reduce player Gold before Wrath of the Lich King arrives have been put in place on the test server. Everyone's favorite (or most hated) socialite Haris Pilton has transformed into more than just a nod to bad pop culture, Patch 2.4.3 sees her as the single biggest gold sink in the game. Just like her enterprising real-life counterpart, Pilton has launched a new line of bags and jewelry that is sure to bait some players into parting with their hard-earned Gold.

Pilton's flagship product, the epic "Gigantique" Bag is the only 22-slot bag of any sort and the biggest non item-specific bag available to players. It is bigger than the Pit Lord's Satchel, which drops off Magtheridon; the Sun Touched Satchel which is a zone drop from Magister's Terrace; the Tattered Hexcloth Sack from a quest in Zul'Aman; and even the Phat Loot Friday-featured Primal Mooncloth Bag. At a whopping 1,200 Gold, it's also the most expensive bag from a vendor or otherwise. Clever little Haris has also dissociated herself from The Lower City, so no discounts will be honored and she'll earn full profit from your Gold. The kicker? "Gigantique" Bags aren't unique.
