Patch 6.2 Preparation / Recap – Overview of Profession Changes and Additions.

We have yet to get an official release date for patch 6.2, but my speculation is June 23rd (24th for EU) due to end of the PvP season being announced 1 week ago on June 9th.  Players have less than two weeks now to prepare. I going to recap on profession changes and additions to the game coming with patch 6.2.

Patch 6.2 will introduce a new crafting reagent,  Felblight. (This is the new  Savage Blood) Felblight can only be obtained from gathering in Tanaan Jungle (Yes, gathering professions will have a purpose again.) Jewelcrafters will finally be able to once again craft Epic Gems! (We haven’t had Epic Gems since Cataclysm) Stage 5 and 6 crafted gear upgrades are added to the game that will give players an additional +30 item levels. Wait for it…. MASS MILLING is coming to the game.. players will be able to mill 20 herbs at time instead of 5.

 Felblight will be used for Stage 5 and 6 crafted upgrades, Epic Gems and a new Glyph being added,  Technique: Glyph of Ascendance.

How are  Felblight obtained you might ask?

As stated before, they are only obtained from within Tanaan Jungle zone. Also, to access Tanaan Jungle characters need to be level 100 with a level 3 Garrison and unlocked their Shipyard.

Withered Herb (Herb), Felmouth Frenzy School (Fishing), Beasts (Skinning) and Ore Nodes (Mining) can contain / give a chance at  Felblight. If you do not have a character with a gathering profession then you will have to resort to your local auction house to purchase them.  Felblight will not be obtainable from your Garrison  Primal Spirit trader like  Savage Blood‘s can currently be traded for.

Stage 1-4 Upgrades Changes

Stage 3 and 4 upgrades have been removed! Players can use Stage 2 upgrades all the way to stage 4. This means that it will be cheaper to go from Stage 1 to Stage 4. Existing “Greater” and “Powerful” items transform into Unstable items; clicking on them creates a Stage 2 item and a materials refund for the extra reagents used to craft the more Stage 3 and 4 upgrades.

Stage 5 and 6 for crafted gear is being added into the game and will take 30x  Felblight / 60x  Felblight + 175 / 350 of the professions specific cooldown bind on pickup materials.

Stage 5 (Armor = ilvl 700 | Weapons = ilvl 690)

Stage 6 (Armor = ilvl 715| Weapons = ilvl 705)

Cost of learning Stage 5 and 6 upgrade token Recipes for crafted BoE upgrade and which random level 3 Townhall profesion NPC sells it.

There is one new Glyph being added into the game,  Technique: Glyph of Ascendance. Currently, it’s speculated to only drop from Tanaan Jungle and is Bind on Pickup. If your scribe character isn’t level 100 yet, you might want to consider leveling it now! The glyph will require 1x  Light Parchment, 3x  Warbinder’s Ink and 1x  Felblight. I expect these to go for a hefty amount of gold for the first few weeks of patch 6.2.


Patch 6.2 adds Epic Gems into the game. In order to access the quests to unlock these cuts, you will need to be level 100 and have the ability to access Tanaan Jungle. (Level 100 + Level 3 Garrison + Shipyard)

Quest Chain
Gems of the Apexis ->  Mastery Of Taladite ->  Ruined Construct (Requires 1000x  Apexis Crystal) = Teaches  Immaculate Versatility Taladite cut.

To learn the other gems cuts, players will need to find more Gemcutter Modules and return them to the Apexis Gemcutter. Players must use the Apexis Gemcutter in Tanaan Jungle to cut Epic gems, you cannot do it on your own. Below is info on how to obtain the other epic gem cuts; there is a small chance players will learn one of the new recipes when Apexis Gemcutter crafts a gem for them.

 Immaculate Versatility Taladite  Initial quest line turned in at Sun-Sage Chakkis  100x  Taladite Crystal, 15x  Felblight, 1x  Greater Versatility Taladite
