Will Expulsom Change How We Use Our Professions?
With every expansion one question is always asked. What profession will make the most gold.
When asking what will make the most gold. One item comes to mind on making large amounts of gold.
Expulsom Changes How We Will Work With Our Crafting Army
How you gather and use Expulsom will change what professions you start with and what new ones you learn for your gold making army
Expulsom Changes How We Will Choose Future Profession Combinations.
But I generally like to explain what I’m thinking. That includes figuring out the best an optimum path for success.
Now we all know the basic combinations that have been around since the start of World of Warcraft
Mining goes with Blacksmithing
Skinning goes with Leatherworking
Jewelcrafting goes with Mining
Herbalism goes with Alchemy
Herbalism also goes with Inscription
Enchanting gathers up materials through disenchanting items for base materials or purchasing
Tailoring is one that you end up getting the materials from either purchasing or gathering cloth
Engineering goes with Blacksmithing
This has been the standard for many expansions.
But with World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth a new item has been added.

In Comes The Wild Card To Crafting In Battle For Azeroth
Shred Master Mk 1
After unlocking a simple turn in quest at the crafters area for both Alliance and Horde
Crafting items from Leatherworking, Blacksmithing, including greens and blues from questing can be added to the Shredder and have materials returned
to them. This allows both crafters and non-crafters to obtain materials that can be used or sold on the AH.
This is also one of the only ways to obtain the Battle for Azeroth crafting item called
Expulsom is used in many recipes across many of the professions. Currently it has a limited chance to being obtained through ‘shredding’ crafts as well as in gathering
Items in the wild.
The same that Blood of Sargeras changed crafting during the Legion expansion, Expulsom will be mandatory to make many of the high demand items.
Every Profession Will Need To Find a Way To Obtain Expulsom
Tailoring, Blacksmithing and Leatherworking will have a large advantage in obtaining Expulsom for their crafts.
They will be able to obtain the base materials for many different crafts and then send these to the shredder to obtain a refund on the materials to make.
This will also be the most popular way to obtain Expulsom
Other professions won’t have that built in advantage in their crafts.
Inscription, Alchemy and Enchanting will need to find different ways of obtaining these.
This means that either they will want to pick up a secondary crafting profession, or a gathering profession.
They also have the option of purchasing items from the AH and sending them to the shredder.
Alchemist Can Transmute Expulsom
Alchemist will have a daily transmute at their crafting lvl 110 to be able to turn raw materials into Expulsom. But that is set on a daily cooldown.
Enchanters will be in love with the Herbalism profession come Battle for Azeroth
With no outlet they will sit on a large amount of Expulsom until a vendor is added in a later patch.
These three combinations end up not having an outlet for any of their Expulsom
But for now any of the Expulsom they gather will go into their bank until a vendor is added
Will Expulsom Use Changes How We Choose Professions?
How you gather and use Expulsom will change what professions you start with and what new ones you learn for your gold making army.
Okay Mr Gold Dragon. How will you be rolling out your gold making army?
So here is my priority list for leveling
1. One Double Crafter (Blacksmithing/Leatherworking)
2. One Double Gatherer feeding the first crafter (Skinning/Miner)
3. One Double Crafter that can feed materials to themselves (Tailoring/Enchanting)
4. Others later during the expansion.
But whats more important is what will your plan be? Have you figured out exactly who will be your heavy hitter?
Are you excited? Are you prepared?
Good Luck and Good Profit Hunting
The Gold Dragon is part of The Gold Queen’s “royal” court. He began making gold his way in Azeroth 8+ years ago. Soon he took his menagerie of crafters and gatherers all the way to the legion HQ and beyond. I’ve always believed in helping people if they ask and showing people that you do not have to be a Goblin Engineer to make gold in World of Warcraft. Many of the lessons I’ve learned in obtaining gold in WoW I’ve also adapted to my personal life. I have gained and spent over 8 million gold. Spending on personal items and helping my guildmates. Dancing on Azerothian mailboxes for gold tips is just a hobby. I believe that everyone can make gold if they want to!
