Welcome to The Starting Zone Podcast, The World of Warcraft Podcast for New and Experienced Players!

On this episode Spencer Downey and Jason Lucas find out what's on the TSZ patrons minds with the July 2022 Patron Q&A!

Episode #533: July Patron Q&A! is ready for Download!

This month we asked our Patrons "What are your plans for professions in Dragonflight?"

  • Jason and Spencer's answer to the question.
  • What's a reasonable amount of time, outside of raid, to be expected to be 'raid ready?' If you're not raiding, how much time should you be working on your professions, how much Mythic+ or PvP'ing, etc.?
  • Which pre-legion dungeon would you most like to see as an M+ dungeon, and which older dungeon would you like to see a new wing added to (similar to the upcoming uldaman dungeon)?
  • How much more content do you think will be available in Dragonflight for cross-faction play? Do you think they'll implement some way of being able to do group finder activities cross faction? Or outside world stuff?
  • Do you feel Blizz is lining up enough End Game content for Dragonflight?
  • What you think of the S4 info we got recently?
  • How difficult do you think the profession items that are on par with high end raid/M+ gear should be to craft? And how difficult should the reagents be to get?
  • Is there anything you've seen in Alpha so far that has you worried about Dragonflight?
