Quick Tip: WoW BFA Live: Train Your Gathering ASAP!!

Unlike some previous expansions, you can’t just go off and quest and pick herbs or mine in BFA.

Like old Vanilla WoW, you need to train BFA professions before you can use them. All professions. Including herbalism, mining, skinning.

If you don’t pay your 50g per profession and train, you will not see the nodes / plants in game. I trained each alt on all their professions in Boralus / Dazar’alor as all trainers are close together. I can change out professions later if I want.

A side effect it seems of splitting profession leveling by expansion rather than having one set of 950 levels across all xpacs. This is different from Legion / WoD / MoP where if you had the profession previously, you could go out and gather and get petals / shards / dust and a quest to go get trained.

Another side effect is a nasty bug on last week’s 8.0.1 pre-patch DarkMoon Faire (DMF) where max level characters near the top of a Legion profession’s levels couldn’t use the profession quest in DMF to get remaining levels. No levels were awarded on completion of the quests. Happened to me on alts that were 106/115 (racial profession), 97/100, 99/100. on several professions Hopefully that gets fixed as some Legion professions had problems reaching 100 without DMF quests for final points. Baby characters (allied races) leveling had no problems getting the +5 levels boost on DMF quests.

I’m Back!!!! June 2018

Sooooo many new videos on Wow pre-BFA and GW2 PoF to edit and post!

In the meantime, here’s what I am working on right now:

Wow pre-pre-patch 8.0 BFA wth maybe only 2 weeks to go (!!):

Mage Tower Artifact Appearances: Druid Guardian and Feral, Hunter BM, Disc Priest (alts from base Argus to ready to try)

Allied Races: leveling Nightborn Priest and Highmountain Tauren Druid (yes, adding Horde too for BFA experience)

Allied Races: my main is almost finished grinding out rep to start Alliance Void Elves and Light-forged Draenei.

Also in the works: Patreon site with detailed how-tos, pre-release lightly edited play vids, and design elements discussions.

BFA pre-patch 8.0 is almost here – time to play and record!!
