WoW Patch 4.2 Firelands Recipes Are BoE

WoW Patch 4.2 - Rage of The Firelands

WoW Patch 4.2 Firelands Recipes

Now that World of Warcraft Patch 4.2 is live, we know the origins of all of the new recipes introduced in this new WoW content expansion.  The new weapon plans and scope schematics are available from Damek Bloombeard and the new profession bag patterns are available from Ayla Shadowstorm.  Both of these vendors are located within the Molten Front.  The vendors are locked behind quest phasing and you must complete the new daily quests to start unlocking the vendors and gain access to those recipes.  These are the recipes that we were preparing our main and alts for Patch 4.2 to start racing to be the first to unlock the vendors and get access to the patterns.

The patterns and plans for the armor pieces are all available from the mobs within the new Patch 4.2 Firelands raid instance.  Currently trash mobs and bosses can drop the new epic patterns for the new epic craftable gear.  Hopefully this is as Blizzard intended and it won't be hotfixed to only allow the recipes to drop from bosses.  All of the new Firelands raid patterns are listed below.

Should You Buy These BoE Patterns?

I myself wouldn't buy these patterns off of the auction house unless I was a major raider and could accumulate enough Living Embers to be able to start producing the gear as soon as the recipe was purchased.  I would wait for the prices to come down as right now paying 20-50k gold for a pattern is going to take a while to earn enough profit to pay off the recipe cost.  While you are working on collecting the Living Embers, the prices will continue to fall.

Since these patterns and plans can be acquired from trash mobs within the Firelands, doing trash runs could be very profitable if you are lucky enough to win a roll for one of the epic gear patterns.  I would sell while the content is fresh and new and the prices are sky high.  You can probably sell for a high amount now and repurchase the same pattern later for far cheaper.

  1. Dang!
    Hotfixed overnight to nerf the drop rates of hte crafting recipes as well as gold that drops on Firelands trash. The trash mobs still drop the Bo epic patterns, just at a lower rate. The drop rates are always higher at first, then scaled back by Blizzard. Or at least, that is the pattern lately.

  2. True that. Although I definitely agree with the part about not paying 50k for a new recipe since it both requires the ember many you have to sell to get to profit.

  3. although not for this post, why do a bunch of you bloggers bother to have the 'security word' to post? It's not like we're buying tickets to a concert; and you already have the option of moderator.
