A couple of weeks ago I talked about ways to fix the Professions in WoW. Since then, a few other ideas have popped in and out of my head elaborating on that. One in particular I would really love to see implemented, and it would make Leatherworkers quite popular.
Yep, it’s a tent. First reaction is probably that tents seem kind of pointless, but hear me out. Leatherworkers would have tents made from Medium Leather, Rugged Leather, Borean Leather, Savage Leather, and the base leather of Mists of Pandaria. Looking at it closer, you’ll see there’s one for each stage/expansion in WoW except for Rugged Leather.
Breaking it down, it would work like this:
- Medium Leather Tent: Works for levels 20-49.
- Rugged Leather Tent: Works for levels 50-70.
- Borean Leather Tent: Works for levels 70-80.
- Savage Leather Tent: Works for levels 80-85.
- ??? Leather Tent: Works for levels 85-90.
The idea, is the tent works like an inn. Logging out while in a tent would give you rest xp, negating the need to visit a town or return to a city if you’re out questing and they would bind to a character after it was used the first time. A Leatherworker using a tent would generate an extra 20% rest when using a tent, a nice bonus for making them for self use.
This would have been an even better idea when questing actually took time and we couldn’t fly everywhere in Azeroth, but I still think it’s practical in the current game without being game breaking. When it comes to WoW, it’s sometimes the little things that people like best.
