Rework low level recipes

Post by Xudo » Wed Feb 01, 2023 10:03 am

Thread started from discussing carpentry, but this is standalone point.
Please, make existing professions viable during leveling. Because now 90% of recipes are useless.

I write about blacksmithing, but there are a lot of questions to other professions too.
We have battlegrounds bracketed at 19, 29, 39, 49.
I think professions could help to prepare for battlegrounds and provide gear with stats for people who miss some quests.
During regular leveling you also has gearing problem. You pick profession and expect reliable source of gear, but it is don't work that way.

For example boots. What boots can we craft?
at 10-19
Rough Bronze Boots https://database.turtle-wow.org/?spell=7817
require lvl 13. no stats. just armor. You probably won't equip them for 10-19.
Next possible boots are Silvered Bronze Boots https://database.turtle-wow.org/?spell=3331
and they even have stats 4str 4sta 3spi, but they require lvl 21.
May be we can use silvered boots for 20-29? No, because there is
Green Iron Boots https://database.turtle-wow.org/?spell=3334
7sta 3str, require lvl 24

Silver is super rare, because it spawns in Iron locations, not in Tin ones.
Silvered boots will last for 3 levels. Upgrade uses other materials and higher skill, but everything can be bought on AH or farmed with help of +5 lvl buddy.

what about 30-39?
Barbaric Iron Boots https://database.turtle-wow.org/?spell=9818
7str 7agi, require lvl 31
Polished Steel Boots https://database.turtle-wow.org/?spell=3513
11 stam, require lvl 32
Golden Scale Boots https://database.turtle-wow.org/?item=3847
8 str 8spi, require lvl 35
Looks reasonable. There are boots with high damage or with high stamina or something for paladins

what about 40-49?
Ornate Mithril Boots https://database.turtle-wow.org/?item=7936
1% dodge and cool on-use spell for PvP, require lvl 44, Plate
Heavy Mithril Boots https://database.turtle-wow.org/?item=7933
12 stamina, require lvl 42. Plate ones
no mail boots for 40-49

Regarding 50-59.
Thorium Boots https://database.turtle-wow.org/?item=12409
have +7 to each resistance. Looks like devs had no idea what stats to put there. I have no idea when I could with to equip them. item to disenchant
There are also Radiant Boots https://database.turtle-wow.org/?spell=16656
with 15 frost and shadow resistance. Hunters and shamans suffer from frost and shadow that much? item to disenchant
Imperial Plate Boots https://database.turtle-wow.org/?spell=16657
13str 12sta, plate, require lvl 54
the only thing I could potentially equip
Runic Plate Boots https://database.turtle-wow.org/?spell=16665
10 fire and nature resistance, require lvl 55. Item to disenchant.
No blue boots for 50-60 while there are a lot of other blue items.
No viable mail boots for 50-60.

May be we could craft good weapon to level arms warrior?
No.
we have cool Copper Battle Axe https://database.turtle-wow.org/?spell=3293
3sta, lvl 8
next axe is Bronze Axe https://database.turtle-wow.org/?item=2849
no stats, lvl 18
next axe is Bronze Battle Axe https://database.turtle-wow.org/?item=7958
no stats, lvl 22
next axe is Massive Iron Axe https://database.turtle-wow.org/?item=3855
11str 7sta, lvl 32
Edge of Winter https://database.turtle-wow.org/?item=17704
3sta with proc on hit, lvl 33
Shadow Crescent Axe https://database.turtle-wow.org/?item=3856
next axe is Huge Thorium Battleaxe https://database.turtle-wow.org/?item=12775
+10 two-handed axe skill, lvl 51

Why axes for level 18 and 22 have no stats? Why they are so close to eachother? I'd put some axe to lvl 12-14 to make gradual progress.
Why there is no two-handed axes for 40 lvl?
Why cool axes for 33 and 35 require sophisticated ingredients and have mediocre stats. Idea is good, but people just won't bother crafting.

I don't know how blizz tried to design early recipes, but they look completely weird.

I think the same and I always like to lvl up my profession with my character, but 90% of items I create/can create are useless.

To provide some context why Blizzard added so many dogshit white items with 0 stats to professions:
Back in WoW Alpha, pretty much all items gave stats, even white ones from vendors etc. and the amount of stats per item was much lower (more similar to Warcraft 3).
So the Rough Bronze Boots for example would have had like +1 STR or something.
This was then changed to make white items completely stat-less, but without adapting professions, resulting in invalidating a lot of lower level gear by either removing all stats, or never increasing the stat-budget from WC3 design.

Was just thinking about this. Silver for blacksmithing needs to be removed from lower level recipes because it's not possible to obtain silver until you have out leveled the item.

Too many White weapons with low dps for low level as well. Their dps values need to be raised to have any type of usefulness.

I'm not saying it needs to be made into easy mode, just brought up to the point of usefulness at least.

I like the idea, though it seems like a lot of effort. Could easily be done piecemeal if needed.

Was thinking it'd be nice if the items also had random spread on all stats, with the spread decreasing until the item recipe becomes green/grey say, to show progress and improvement of the players skill.

You think you do, but perhaps maybe 100% you don't not do.
Or... some of you might actually perhaps most surely do actually anyway, still.

I'll agree with this. Right now, low level blacksmithing is a maybe good option for Hardcores if the drop rates just aren't in their favour, or a money farm that's not as good as other options.

I think it is ok to have rare ingredient for special crafts. You can buy it on individual basis. The only difference of silver from... Iridescent pearl is that you need to use your existing profession.
Though, I feel there is a problem of locating resources in too-high-level areas, which worth standalone discussion.

This is the recipe I'm referring to

https://database.turtle-wow.org/?item=3489

It's a level 12 one handed axe. But it requires 2 silver bars. Silver only spawns in level 15 or higher zones, and it's rare to spawn at that. The reagents level don't match the item level. Either the item needs to be buffed, or the reagents need to be nerfed imho.

Not really. That's a low drop rate on a big table. The amount of grinding someone would have to do to get silver reliably would be pretty likely to push them past the item level.

Silver bar is 10 silver per item buyout.
Silver ore is 14 silver per item buyout.
You can reliably dig it in locations of 25+ lvl: Wetlands and Ashenvale.
Copper bar 30 silver per stack buyout.

This item also need light leather to craft. I think it is ok to buy leather from guy of your level, but buying items of higher level to craft low level item is not good design.
Silver bar could be easily replaced with shadowgem or elixir of minor fortitude. You still need to trade, but with equal contragents.
But you probably won't bother and go ask someone to help you with Deep Blue Sea https://database.turtle-wow.org/?quest=60131 with Orcish Cleaver https://database.turtle-wow.org/?item=4949 as reward with 10.6 dps instead of 8.6

Next crafted one-handed axe is Heavy Mithril Axe https://database.turtle-wow.org/?item=7941
Mithril, Carl! Bronze and Iron and steel and even thorium are completely skipped.
You sure can get gear in dungeons, but you can get bad luck. Or you can be first-time player who don't familliar with dungeons yet. In short, you need some backfill for bad luck.

The lowest level silvered stuff is level 20. You can reliably mine silver Ashenvale in the western area of the zone, in places like the Shrine of Aessina. The mobs you will encounter will be level 19 to 21, like Ghostpaw Runner. The silver nodes don't appear to be rare there at all. From my experience, they're either up or someone has recently mined them.

If you're a fresh level 20 warrior or paladin with blacksmithing, you can roll on up to the Shrine of Aessina area, kill a couple spiders and wolves, mine a silver node or two, and have enough silver for the stuff you want to craft. Speaking from experience.

This is a very informative reply and a strong argument for boosting low level crafting.

I would love to see this change. Part of it could come from having more useful gear, as described above, and part should come from more consumables. I love the engineering experience because I get all my skill-ups creating items that I gain benefit from (bombs, target dummies, harvest reapers, etc). While I don't expect other professions to take it that far, I like the idea of being able to do something cool because you're a blacksmith or leather worker, particularly at lower levels.

Grand design of low level blacksmithing
Things to keep in mind
It should provide viable starting gear for battlegrounds of 2-9, 10-19 and 20-29.
Battleground-oriented gear should have stamina and some other random attribute like agility, strength, intellect.
Weapons should be as useful as possible and fill missing gaps in leveling path: daggers, 2h axes and 2h swords.
It should be leveled by useful stuff, which can be exchanged, not vendored. I implemented it as quests.
Crafting quests should reward more money than selling things to vendor.
It should provide unique benefit for crafter.
Changes should be as minimal as possible. Thats why reuse existing craft. Add crafts with random stats to reduce number of new recipes and make them useful by many specs.
It should be possible to level along the mining and character.
It should be viable alternative to engineering.
75 skill requires level 5.
150 skill requires level 10.
225 skill requires level 20.
Make use of low level gems.
It should teach things about crafting.
There should be an option to reforge item with random stats for minor price.
Reforging should be bad option to increase skill to prefent leveling by reforging.

I decided to check, does proposed items fit in power of this level?
How much stats can add other items of this level?
When proposed items will be replaced?

War Torn Pants https://database.turtle-wow.org/?item=15485 (I didn't proposed to add pants, but anyway) required level 9 on AH I see variations "of the Bear +2 sta +1 str" and "of the Tiger +1 agi +2 str"
I see only pants, chest, shield, offhand with stats.
Legs and chest are +2+2 or +4
Offhands and shields +1+1 or +2

Daggers
Curved Dagger 7.2 DPS, 1.6 speed +2 stat
Sword 7.3 DPS, 2.4 speed +2 stat
Staff 8.9 DPS, +3+3 or +4 stat

When proposed items will be replaced?
boots
Brackwater Boots https://classicdb.ch/?item=3302 world drop lvl 10
+3 sta
Mud Stompers https://classicdb.ch/?item=6188 from quest lvl 10
+3 sta
Greaves of the People's Militia https://classicdb.ch/?item=5944 from quest lvl 10
+3 sta
Soldier's Boots https://classicdb.ch/?item=6551 world drop lvl 12
can be +2+2 or +3+3 or any other combination

belt
Raider's Belt https://classicdb.ch/?item=9788 world drop lvl 13
+2+2 or +8 AP
War Paint Waistband https://classicdb.ch/?item=14725 world drop lvl 12
+3str
Soldier's Girdle https://classicdb.ch/?item=6548 world drop lvl 11
+2+2 or +3+3 in any combination

wrist
Raider's Bracers https://classicdb.ch/?item=9785 world drop lvl 12
+6 AP
Soldier's Wristguards https://classicdb.ch/?item=6550 world drop lvl 10
https://wowpedia.fandom.com/wiki/Soldie ... ristguards
+1+1 or +2
Bloodspattered Wristbands https://classicdb.ch/?item=15495 world drop lvl 10
https://wowpedia.fandom.com/wiki/Bloods ... Wristbands
+1+1

Gloves
Veteran Gloves https://classicdb.ch/?item=2980 world drop lvl 10
+3 str
Bloodspattered Gloves https://classicdb.ch/?item=15491 world drop lvl 10
up to +2+2 stats

Chest
https://wowpedia.fandom.com/wiki/Infantry_Tunic
up to +2+2 stats

Conclusion:
existing belts, gloves, waist, writs don't add stats before lvl 10.
After this level they add more stats, than proposed ones.
Proposed items are good, but don't introduce radical imbalance.
Gear with similar stats should be described for cloth and leather users.

I also agree with the points made in this thread. Every profession should be a viable tool to finetune your characters stats, and almost 90% of everything i make is vendor / disenchant instead as either LW or BS.

I suddenly found that rough bronze stuff get defense skill instead of spirit in database.
boots https://database.turtle-wow.org/?item=6350
bracers https://database.turtle-wow.org/?item=2867
cuirass https://database.turtle-wow.org/?item=2866
leggings https://database.turtle-wow.org/?item=2865
shoulders https://database.turtle-wow.org/?item=3480

And shoulders give not only armor now, but also stamina

I don't raid and rank, so you can not bother asking.

Maybe it's not about recipes. It might be easier to make mobs drop less greens and more materials instead (including ores). As a kind of move towards player driven economy.

Never had sense many of the recipes, I hate it...

It would be cool being able to craft actually useful gear according to your level and not crafting white useless gear just for leveling the profession and throwing them at a vendor, it really feels like a big waste of material.

We really need a rework.

A lot of recipes were reworked in server update of 5th of April 2023. viewtopic.php?t=6395
I'm curious, is it possible to level profession by crafting only useful stuff now.

Special thanks to Dragunovi. I suppose it is his work.
