Insider Trader: Not like it used to be


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

Lately, there has been a lot of talk about vanilla WoW and the way things used to be. Now that experience gains can be shut off, players can actually move through some of this content the way it was meant to be experienced. Well, it won't be exactly the way it was, but it's as close as we're getting.

Blizzard has also been implementing more elements from the old world. Naxxramas was a vanilla dungeon, and was redone to become the first raid instance of the second expansion, Wrath of the Lich King, set back on Azeroth no less.

In fact, soon we'll all be battling Onyxia once again, deep breaths and all!

Professions used to be different too. Of course, most of the changes to the system have been for the better, but there were some elements that could be recycled for the future.

Last week, Insider Trader discussed a new, more progressive direction for professions, including some of the ways that this could be implemented. This week I'll be shedding new light on one particular vanilla element that has been phased out, exploring ways in which it could be reborn.

First look at Tailoring in Wrath

Leatherworking wasn't the only profession to start seeing some love in the latest beta patch. Among the others starting to be implemented is Tailoring. When I say 'starting to be implemented' I really mean just that. It's a start. Tailoring especially screams 'I'm not done, seriously!' when you look at what there is to offer. Not that that's a surprise, of course. It's still early in the beta.

If you want to look at what there is to offer, check out the gallery below. We have images of each of the patterns that have been implemented (sort of) in this beta build. A lot of the items are completely bare of stats, which is unusual for sure. It's possible that it's just a display error, but there's always a chance these items haven't really been itemized yet, and were put in early so you can start skilling up to test the big stuff on the way. It was suggested that these items may possibly have random stat distribution upon creation, but usually there's a 'Random Enchantment' note on the items in that case. Oh, if you were wondering, the Magic Carpet isn't there yet.
