In the upcoming patch 3.3.3, you will be able to use Frozen Orbs somewhat like a currency item for professions. Let's say Frozen Orb will soon become the fancy name for "Emblem of Crafting" ;-)
A helpful trader, Frozo the Renowned, has set up shop in Dalaran Magus Exchange and now offers you multiple items that you can buy using Frozen Orbs.
For most cases, this is a simple one for one trade. The following items can all be bought using only one Frozen Orb:
- Eternal Air
- Eternal Earth
- Eternal Fire
- Eternal Life
- Eternal Shadow
- Eternal Water
- Frost Lotus
For the following items, Frozo will be wanting a little bit more from you than just one
- Runed Orb - Requires 4 Frozen Orbs
- Crusader Orb - Requires 6 Frozen Orbs
- Pattern: Frosty Flying Carpet - Requires 6 Frozen Orbs, but also for the purchaser to be a Tailor.
So be sure to check Frozo the Renowned out if you're helping us test on the PTR, and if you're curious about the other things coming in 3.3.3, check out our PTR patch notes:
