Common Problems

  • Why do my professions show as 1?
  • What happened to all of my skill points for my profession?

The Battle for Azeroth professions updates removed the general skill bar. Going forward, crafting a recipe from an expansion will grant points towards that expansion's progress. These points are no longer cumulative.

The break-down for skill points is as follows:

  • Classic - 300 points
  • Burning Crusade - 75 points
  • Wrath of the Lich King - 75 points
  • Cataclysm - 75 points
  • Mists of Pandaria - 75 points
  • Warlords of Draenor - 100 points
  • Legion - 100 points
  • Battle for Azeroth (Kul Tiras and Zandalar) - 150 points

If you did not have 700 or more skill points as of Legion, your profession points for Legion may show as if they dropped to 1. This is because the profession window will always show the bar most appropriate to the character's level; in this case, characters level 100-110 will see the progression bar corresponding with Legion.
