Level 90 Boost: Professions Too?

Analysis of my competition with Selltacular is currently being worked on, but until then, some interesting news today.

Blizzard's 5.4.7 PTR Patch has been datamined by Wowhead, and there are 2 interesting strings in there that could have an effect on our professions:

  • CHARACTER_UPGRADE_PROFESSION_BOOST:: |cff00ff00Veteran Bonus:|r |cffffffffLevel 60+ characters will also receive a skill level boost to their primary professions.|r
  • CHARACTER_UPGRADE_PROFESSION_BOOST_RESULT_FORMAT:: |cff00ff00Bonus: %s (600)|r

Now, from what I can see here, it seems as though the "current" system in place is that you will be able to get a skill level boost to primary professions only if you are at least level 60 on the toon you're boosting. Some interesting info, I'm sure we'll be seeing more as the PTR is tested, and I'd love to know how much the boost will actually be. Very interesting news today, it will be fun to see how this pans out!

Cheers,

Phat Lewts

  1. I wonder if there will also be a min profession level as well.

    Would it be fair if I took my 65 Warlock who currently is JC and... Tailoring? (don't ask, old character) and has them maxed currently and had them boosted up, vs. if I dropped Tailoring, picked up, say Enchanting, left it at lvl 1 and get it boosted to the same level?
