If there's anything I can say I absolutely hope for in Dragonflight, it's that the design decision to not do a borrowed power system and the changes to professions both work out.
Professions in Dragonflight are seeing a lot of changes -- Blizzard already released a two-part post about them, and more are sure to come.
Profession equipment in Dragonflight gives you stats to craft better, and more importantly look good doing it
The biggest issue with professions in WoW will finally be solved in Dragonflight with the introduction of profession equipment, which will help characters look the part, as well as provide actual bonuses to the professions.
One of the main selling points of World of Warcraft's forthcoming expansion Dragonflight is a serious revamp of the profession system.
Of all the crafting professions in World of Warcraft, most only have a few special recipes which require a specific Crafting Station to be used in order to create your item.
The beta for Dragonflight will see some significant changes for World of Warcraft, including a much-anticipated rework to professions which add work orders, crafting difficulty, and quality levels.
When Dragonflight launches later this year, it brings with it an expansion of the current profession system that promises to turn a lackluster system into a more robust and lucrative one.
Professions in World of Warcraft have been unimpressive since Cataclysm. I mean, that's a personal opinion, I understand that -- you may love your crafting and max it out every expansion, in which case I'd love you to comment and explain that to me, because I want to enjoy professions and I don't.
If Battle for Azeroth promised to put the War back in Warcraft, then maybe Shadowlands will put the Craft back in Warcraft, because crafting professions are seeing some major revamps.
I really haven't liked my professions for several expansions -- I think the last time I really enjoyed crafting in World of Warcraft was during The Burning Crusade, if only because that was when I made my Lionheart Executioner.
