Nice. BoE though, I'd like to see the BoP gear be more useful this time around.

The mat requirements...ack. It's gonna take a lot of pick-swinging to make these sets.

It sort of looks like...

Cobalt is the new Fel Iron? (Two Cobalt Ore makes one Cobalt Bar?)

Saronite is the new Khorium? (Ten Saronite Ore makes one Saronite Bar)

Azurite is the new Adamantite? (Two Azurite Ore makes one Azurite Bar, and ten Azurite Bars make one Hardened Azurite Bar?)

And Titanium is the new Eternium? (A Saronite Bar plus ??? Titanium Ore makes a Titansteel Bar)

Slightly more complex than the current system, but not a huge jump. Hopefully they're generous with the mineral nodes like they were in Hellfire Peninsula, at least for the first couple months.

Edit: Left in a line I thought I'd deleted, should make more sense now.

I assume it's two Cobalt Ore to a Cobalt Bar, and two Saronite Ore to a Saronite Bar?


I think you should switch Cobalt and Saronite. The Saronite patterns make blues, while the equivalent Cobalt patterns are greens.

Thanks for the link. At least this is a step in the correct direction for blacksmithing.

I think Saronite is more like Eternium than Khorium

I was doing some quick comparisons to my current gear vs the blue BS gear (I'm in Badge/ZA/T4/Kara gear), and if I replaced everything I would gain about 40 STA and +150 defense rating. So around my gear level it looks pretty cool to get at 75, if there's no quest items or instance items that beat my stuff before that :) And it's about +300 STR

I made the connection the way I did because Saronite produces bars which are then upgraded to a higher-level bar by the addition of another metal.

Copper + Tin = Bronze,
Fel Iron + Eternium = Felsteel,
Saronite + Titanium = Titansteel.

That isn't based on very much, though, except my impressions from the nascent Professions page - if you know more than that, please share.
