Blizzard Drops WoW Trade Skills for 'Professions'
8:58 AM | Eddie Park | Comment on this story
The official World of Warcraft site has recently announced an upcoming change to the current beta. Trade skills, which allow players to pursue the creation of various objects and so forth, are being renamed as "professions." In addition, the system itself is undergoing some changes, chief among which seems to be the limiting of pursued professions to two per player:
You will no longer learn different professions by paying for them with skill points. You'll still learn them by speaking to the appropriate profession trainer. However, players will now be restricted to learning two professions. We decided to change the skill system to make it simpler, balanced, and more intuitive. The new system should allow everyone to participate in one to two professions, and create a much more vibrant market for goods generated from professions.For those currently in the beta, Blizzard adds that players with more than two trade skills should decide which two they wish to keep. Otherwise, two will be selected at random when the next patch rolls around.
More information on the upcoming change can be found at the official WoW site.
