WoW Shadowlands: Optional reagents - everything different again

Highlight recent changes Yes No

Update, 25.05.2020: Blizzard has subjected the optional reagents feature in the alpha of WoW: Shadowlands to a comprehensive overhaul. Various reagents have fallen victim to the scissors, and the developers have also changed the system itself, as Vanion reports.

The

new crafting feature has therefore changed as follows

:
  • Players could previously select only two of the three existing categories of item level increase, attribute determination, and additional effects at a time when crafting an item. Now all three are available.
  • Additional effects are no longer limited to specific armor lots.
  • Each crafting profession can now create only one optional reagent for an additional effect (except engineers, who can create two reagents).
  • Attribute determination now includes the ability to add a guaranteed socket slot to an item. However, the secondary attribute can no longer be selected for this.

The following reagents are currently still available in the Shadowlands alpha:

  • Craftman's Pouch (Tailoring) - There is a chance to gain an additional skill point for your profession when crafting Shadowlands items.
  • Reinforced Girdle (Blacksmithing) - Your Saturation effect persists when you die in the Arena or on the battlefield.
  • Loosened Belt (Leatherworking) - Your Saturation effects last twice as long.
  • Shadowy Rabbit's Foot (Enchantment Art) - Increases your movement speed.
  • Necrostatic Micro Capacitor (Engineering) - Increases your primary attribute by five points for 15 minutes when you complete a world quest. Can be stacked up to five times.
  • Hydrodynamic Accelerators (Engineering) - Increases your swimming speed.
  • Alchemist Pouch (Alchemy) - Doubles the duration of your vials.
  • Luxurious Feather (Inscription) - Reduces your fall damage.
  • Word of Power I (Inscription Lore) - Increases the item level of the item by five points.
  • Word of Power II (Inscription Lore) - Increases the item level of the item by ten points.
  • Word of Power III (Inscription Lore) - Increases the item level of the item by 15 points.
  • Word of Power IV (Inscription) - Increases the item level of the item by 20 points.
  • Masterful Jewel Bond (Jewel Cutter) - Mastery as a secondary attribute.
  • Mirroring Jewel Compound (Jewel Cutter) - Speed rating as a secondary attribute
  • Deadly Jewel Compound (Jewel Cutter) - Critical Hit Rating as secondary attribute
  • Versatile Jewel Compound (Jewel Cutter) - Versatility as a secondary attribute
  • Elethium Mount (Jewel Grinder) - Guaranteed Pedestal Space

Original Message: The optional reagents should in WoW (buy now 14,99 € ): Shadowlands to make crafting interesting again. To this end, they offer players the opportunity to add certain additional bonuses to manufactured items. We'll explain exactly how this works in our article on the new feature. However, Blizzard has now made additional adjustments to the reagents in the alpha of Shadowlands, which make the crafting system more flexible compared to the previous version.

As

Wowhead reports, the developers have adjusted a tooltip, according to which until now there was a limit of two optional reagents per item, although some items had more than two slots for them. However, the tooltip in the new version does away with this limit, indicating that we are allowed to fill more than two slots with optional reagents for certain items.

Blizzard has also added new optional reagents in the alpha that only work in combination with plate armor of blacksmithing. Accordingly, there will likely be unique bonuses from optional reagents for each armor class in Shadowlands.

Finally, the developers have also adjusted the individual reagents once again, which is why we are giving you an overview of the current status of the feature here - but keep in mind that this is the alpha version and various details can still change until the release.
