Leatherworking Research

Just wondering... when you do the magnificent hide research, is it always discovering PVP gear? Or is it random and I'm just unlucky to be always discovering a PVP item?

None of my characters participates in any PVP, so aside from generating gear I can use to sneak my way into heroics, these items are relatively useless to me (though I suppose there are some pvp types on my server who may want to buy them on the AH... though I'd imagine I'd be selling them at a loss if I do sell them).

So... anyone? Discovering new leatherworking patters is strictly PVP or will their be PVE useful items later?

I have gotten 1 piece of gear so far that is not PVP. I practically fell out of my chair when I saw it. The mats for it are ridiculous though.

So far I have all 522 helmets and boots learned, but Haunting Spirits are very scarce. :/

Most of the gear you get from researching is PvP gear, there are a few PvE 522 epic pieces, aside from a LW bag.

It's random what you discover. There is just more Dreadful gear to discover than 522s.

Druid (leather), Rogue (leather), Monk (leather), Hunter (Mail) and Shaman (Mail)... gads that is a lot of useless gear recipes i'll discover on my way to discovering things that are useful.

I'm just wondering when it is going to end. Been doing it daily for several months, and haven't missed a day. I think I have more lvl 90 pvp patterns than all the rest of the patterns I have all added together. It's basically become a "daily in disguise" grind pain in the butt. "go kill 20 or more max level creatures that drop leather every single day, for half a year or so, to get a few hundred patterns no one will ever have you make". I have never had anyone show any interest ever in any pvp pattern I have ever had....the honor vendor makes crap that dwarfs the pathetic stuff you can make, and since there is no honor cap you can grind out far better equipment in just a few days worst case.

It's become impossible for me to find patterns people actually DO want me to make because my patterns are so bloated with pvp crap that finding the non-pvp crap is almost impossible. They need to add a filter to the existing profession filters....something that gives you the choices "show me everything", "show me only pvp patterns", or "show me only pve patterns" so we have a way to filter out the glut.

I just grow leather on my farm. Planting sixteen Raptorleaf in a day yields about three full stacks of leather, so I only have to do it two or three times a week. Easy peasy.

Adiathna, get Akis(sp) Recipe List, it will; show what patterns you are missing, I'm about 20 days from getting all the patterns judging by what I have left.

Unfortunately my farm is already share-cropped out to alts. I have tailor and alchemist alts that have to grow motes of harmony instead of cloth and herbs...so my leatherworker grows the other stuff for them and ships it off to them so they don't stagnate. I think blacksmiths probably have the same problem, but my blacksmith alt isn't level 90 yet. Killing for leather is less painful than killing stuff for cloth and doing herbing all over the world to get each type needed...I just do "fatty goat steak" runs every single day (whether that quest is active that day or not).

thanks...but already have it...just haven't bothered to bring it up yet...too depressing...grin.

That at least I did luck out on...was one of the first week's recipes I learned if I recall. If not, it was the next week for sure.

Got all the LW, BS, and Tailoring patterns.

No Haunting Spirits to use though, lol.

I've got over a dozen patterns and only 2 I could wear and All patterns have been PvP crap. Off the only two I've gotten so far, by the time I got the patterns to make it I was level 90 and replaced the next day in a heroic dungeon.

LW sucks! It looks like the professions are solely geared toward players who play the AH. I just wanted to make my own gear and be proud wearing it. Such a drag!

Maybe me but the mats for some of these recipes are outrageous, 28 pieces of leather or cloth or the bsing ingots and you can make 1 piece specialty leather/cloth/ingot per day so basically 1 piece of gear per month, good thing I am not an end game player.
