Revision for jobs, crafter and collectors

But that's not all, because of course Yoshi-P had a lot more to say about the upcoming update 5.4. So the jobs should be revised once again for PvP and PvE. The monk is especially scrutinized. We will probably only find out at a later date which changes the developers have planned exactly.

Craftsmen and collectors won't be neglected with Patch 5.4 either. For example, the designers want to adapt some of the less frequently used commands in the manufacturing professions. There should also be new states for the recipes. The collection system, on the other hand, is being fundamentally revised – including a new interface. Similar to the quest giver, the geographical height of the collection points is now also noted with a small arrow on the minimap. Fishermen can be pleased that the command "fish eyes" will no longer be necessary in future to catch rare fish.

The collectors get a completely new interface.
