In this thread, please post your feedback on Crafting Orders, which is now available for testing in the Dragonflight Beta.

We have initially enabled this system on the Tyrhold and Koranos realms only, and we expect to turn it on with some test vendors on the Valdrakken realm in a few days.

This is a new system which allows everyone to send orders to have specific items crafted for them, including epic soulbound equipment. Once a crafter fulfills an order, it will be sent to the customer in the mail.

You will find that the Crafting Order Clerks standing on the overlook above The Artisan’s Market in Valdrakken will now accept your crafting orders. Should you wish to try sending a crafting order, speak with one of them. You will be able to browse for an item you wish to order, customize it as you see fit, write a (courteous) message, and post the order. By default, your order will be public, allowing any appropriately knowledgeable crafter on your realm to fulfill it. You can also choose to send a guild order or a personal order to someone in particular with the right profession.

Find any crafting table for your profession in the Dragon Isles (there are many within the Artisan’s Market in Valdrakken), and either right click the table or open your recipes manually. You will find that the Crafting Orders tab along the bottom of your recipe is accessible. From there, you can search or browse public, guild, and any personal orders you may have received. Once you’ve claimed the order, you can provide any missing reagents, craft the item in question, fill out a (courteous) message back to your customer and complete the order, collecting your commission.

Hello.

We’ve been closely following all of your feedback here as we’ve also been playtesting and iterating on this system. As a result, we have developed some changes to Crafting Orders.

For public crafting orders, the customer will now have to provide all basic reagents.

  • Optional reagents that previously could be provided by either party (such as missives) are unchanged.
  • This change does not affect guild or private orders.

This is to help streamline the process of deciding on a commission for the customer, and figuring out if an order is worth filling for the crafter.

When a customer places an order, there will be a track recipe checkbox in the bottom right of the reagents that tracks the recipe for them to easily see what reagents they need in order to assist in gathering reagents to place the order.

  • This will not show for recrafting orders.

If there are any public orders posted for the recipe you are placing an order for, the commission field should auto-fill to match the highest commissioned existing order, +1 silver.

  • Recrafting Orders are now limited to personal and guild orders only. We hope to re-add Public Recrafting Orders in a later patch. This is primarily to protect customers from having their crafts inadvertently lowered in quality.

Items with different iLvl for each quality now display a + next to their iLvl in the customer’s list of recipes they can place orders for. Mousing over the iLvl will display a tooltip with the iLvl at each quality as well as a disclaimer about optional reagents.

When the customer is viewing an order (including placing an order and looking at existing/completed orders) there will be a button in the top right near the recipe name to favorite that recipe.

  • This will not show for recrafting orders.

We currently have a known issue:

  • If reagents are supplied for Crafting Orders and the reagents are in two separate item stacks in the player’s inventory, the Crafting Order can sometimes fail to be created or fulfilled.

The changes above have now been implemented in the Dragonflight Beta, and are ready for further testing.

Thank you very much for testing and providing feedback.
