Home World of Warcraft Professions Tools of the Trade Professional Items in Patch 8.1.5. Full Guide



With each subsequent Patch, developers introduce something new, whether it is a part of new PvE or PvP content, new locations or any other changes that may influence some part of gameplay. Patch 8.1.5 has not become an exception to the rule; Players with non-gathering professions are able to complete new profession quests, Tools of the Trade, that unlock recipes for Epic Items. Overgear will guide you through all new profession quests and the Items you can craft after completing them. Let’s begin!



The new Tools of the Trade Questlines are available only for the following Professions: Alchemy, Blacksmithing, Enchanting, Engineering, Inscription, Jewelcrafting, Leatherworking, and Tailoring. To start a certain profession Questline, the Player needs to reach character’s level 120 and have 150 skill points in the BfA-tier of a chosen crafting profession (Kul Tiran for the Alliance or Zandalari for the Horde characters accordingly).

It is important to note, however, that you will get only the recipes as rewards for completing the quests but not the corresponding Items themselves. So be ready to farm varied amounts of special items that all have specific drop locations, like dungeon bosses, concrete mobs from certain World Quests, or even World Bosses.

Let us have a closer look at everything this new update has to offer.

The new Item for Alchemists is the   Silas’ Sphere of Transmutation that allows the owner to transmute it into another object for one hour.

To craft this Sphere the Alchemist will need the following ingredients:

Sly Rogues Decanter. Drops from   Jes Howlis Boss in   Tol Dagor Dungeon;

Mystical Cauldron – alchemists may craft this item;

Expulsom ×10. This Item may be made by Alchemists or get by scrapping equipment.

As soon as you have finally created the Sphere, you may use it to obtain one of four items to work with them after:

Silas’ Stone of Transportation – summons an all-seeing eye for two minutes that will teleport the user to a nearby safe haven instantly while outdoors in Kul Tiras or Zandalar. Has 9 Minutes Cooldown;

Silas’ Decanter of Disguise – disguises the imbiber as one of a variety of creatures from across the world;

Silas’ Vial of Continuous Curing – restores Player’s health from the never-ending, ever-flowing vial of continuous curing;

Silas’ Potion of Prosperity – increases the chances to create extra items from a Player’s Alchemy recipe list.

Note that all these Items show up randomly but every one of them allows the Player to search various cauldrons on Kul Tiras and Zandalar for flasks and potions.

The  Alchemy Questline lets the Hero investigate the dark side of transmutation. In addition, the Player will learn a little bit more about the evasive   Silas Darkmoon from the Darkmoon Faire. The first Quest is given by   Clever Kumali in  Dazar’alor for the Horde or by   Elric Whalgrene in   Boralus for the Alliance Players.

Inscription masters have also got a new profession Item that names   Sanguine Feather Quill of Lana’thel. It siphons the blood of the dead around you, restoring your own health in the process. It also allows the creation of the four following Blood Contracts:

Blood Contract: Sacrifice. Summons an   Avatar of Sacrifice to heal by your side. This Avatar has the form of a stag.

Blood Contract: Bloodguard. Summons an   Avatar of the Bloodguard which acts as a tank. This one looks like a spiky Kodo.

Blood Contract: Bloodshed. Summons an   Avatar of Bloodshed which attacks in melee range and has a form of Hyena.

Blood Contract: Oblivion: Summons a spider looking   Avatar of Oblivion which attacks as ranged DPS.

Technically every avatar is a temporary pet that will stay with summoner for four hours but none of them is usable in Dungeons, Raids, etc.

Expulsom ×10. This Item may be made by Alchemists or get by scrapping equipment;

Viridescent Ink ×15;

Once a Player drops Inscription and picks it back up again, they can learn the Blood Contracts via   Recipe Book: Sanguine Feather Quill of Lana’thel.

Synchronous Thread – is a new Tools of the Trade item for Tailors. It acquires extra cloth from rifts in Kul Tiras and Zandalar, resurrect outdoors via   Temporal Recall, and purchase removed old-world Tailoring patterns.

Sometimes when closing a rift outdoors, you’ll get a   Chronal Cache of Cloth. This can yield individual as well as bolts of cloth from any expansion, including rare BoP cloth like   Celestial Cloth.

There is a very small chance a   Time-Lost Trader appears, who sells a number of lately unavailable or extremely hard-to-find patterns in exchange for   Embroidered Deep Sea Satin.

If you need in fast leveling professions – it will require lots of recources from you. Our stock of gold can push these concerns aside.
