Also, apparently, all outa tradeskill? Spend 9 hrs getting the prereqs done based on what the gnome told me, ("What lies beneath", which requires "The Captain's Lament" and a lot of harvesting many different tiers) and no, despite what he says he does not help you with these at any point.
Both questlines together gave 0.4% of Level 100-101 (700k of 175 million needed for L101) I hope that is an error on behalf of the beta buff token, setting the level but forgetting the xp.
Have characters in the Queue from days ago, I keep adding L100 crafters hoping one will get through since the beta buffed one is stuck.
Other observations:
Harvests in PoM say they are for 110-119 not 101-109? was this intentional? Where do we get recipes for 111+?
Goblin gives max L100 harvests, but these do not work for L100 crafts or writs.
TS Beta gnome lacks recipes for L100 writs (assuming these would give a reasonable % of 175 mil xp?(!))
^- without a way to get to L110 without weeks of writs the beta achievement is unobtainable.
Suggestion: New TS buff token to 101 that gives the xp as well as the level? (also, had to get to TS L20 on my own, the token did not do anything until I had a profession)

Maybe you should just read the forums/discord a little before posting. All you questions are already answered there.

The new lvl 100 writs will come with the next patch. And the beta buffers text is probably from last expansion.
They want us to lvl in the new add on so don't do old stuff.

I do follow discord, but missed the TS forum here. I don't see anything here about the TS questline though.
Quite disappointing to find the only thing I want to do in the Beta won't be released till launch, though at least on live I won't be already bored of it as I was with KA.
Mods: feel free to move this to TS forum if TS questline is not a quest.

Information in the OP is outdated (mostly) except:
There is no TS Questline, and won't be until PoP goes live. Gnome's text is unchanged.
Harvests still say 110-119, no explanation offered yet.
Goblin/Pony can give ToT mats (96-99 iirc). No word on if pony/goblin/plant will be upgradable to new content. (This would probably be part of the TS Questline)
XP per rush order (temporary measure) is 2%(+bonuses) of L101-102 and 0.00086% per combine (forget grinding xp).
We still have no mention of how much XP the TS Questline will offer, will it get us 100-103? 101-105? 101-107?
Vitality cap is still at a point that one quest turn in would wipe out all your vitality (700k xp was a figure I heard).
Quantities of items needed for crafting is completely wonky, 200+ mats for a journeyman combine means 1200+ per writ which means hours of harvesting per writ on live. (This will affect the TS questline if not fixed) (also currently requires all classes to harvest ToT mats for 100-101 and some to keep harvesting ToT 101+ though this should not affect the TS questline)
Currently zero motivation to grind 5000 writs (2% per rush order or 50 per level less bonuses) to get a one time /claim item all my characters would want.

The bigest issue I see are
1 The lvl 100 rush requires things learned with rep (not high rep but still), rush orders should be using the basic crafting from the essential recipes not rep 2 expansions back.
2. The other issue seams to be that when it goes live leveling crafting requires going back 2 expansions to get mats. Or use of goblin/mule harvester. This becomes a bit of a issue when combined with making the trade skill quest line in the last expansion remove the goblin gather for a merc (that under performs compared to collectors merc). So leveling crafting if you do not have access to stock piles or if they run out requires leaving currant content. Normally you should be able to farm for the same level mats as the adventure level of the zone, but making the 100 being 100-109 and the new mats lvl 110-119 means crafting mats are not in a lower level zone than there level breaking that long standing same level tradition. (almost like adventures is now lower than crafters.)

(I feel the high level crafting is a massive grind to level taking about 22 rush orders per level with vitality(rest bonus) and other bonuses. But that seams to be by design so I just see it as something boring that is about wasting time instead of adding content.)

The ts mats are 110 - 119, most likely because the ones we just had from ToT were 100 - 109. in order to no create conflict in the data base you would have to make them a new level tier.

Maybe there will be a new plant/pet/something to give us a rare each day for the new expansion set, as a reward in the new TS line?? ATTN: Devs Smile
