I know we talk here about convenience and the often unforeseen consequences attached, but I had a thought for a convenience feature I’d like to see.
The problem came to me when I realized there was a spirit of harmony vendor. Yes, I know, it’s a little late to be realizing that. I’m not sure if I simply never knew or whether it was added during my time away.
I’ve been accidentally stockpiling Spirits on my alchemist shaman because, well, there was nothing to do with them. I’ve got about 50 now, so when I saw the opportunity to unload a few, I took it and bought a bunch of stuff for my blacksmith to turn into living steel.
And thus the fun began, because I had to
1) buy the ore on my shaman
2) send the ore to my paladin
3) then send the bars of trillium back to my shaman
4) then send the living steel to my paladin
5) then send the belt buckles or whatever else I was making back to the shaman.
So my thought is this: if you take the time to log a toon on the same account in a city with the appropriate crafting nook (anvil, etc), then Blizz could grant access to that toon’s professions, as well, if your current toon is in the same place.
It wouldn’t take much tracking. The game already knows where you log, so if it’s in a city, that would probably be good enough, and they know what professions you have even offline, as evidenced by the guild professions tab.
So it’s a small thing, yes, but think how many times each of us switch toon to toon for crafting. It seems like a waste of time and a burden on the login servers.
Stubborn (and convenience-addicted)
