WoD and Legion have catch up mechanics that help you level them up. So the nice profits are gone really. Profs cant give better gear than mythic raiding because then ‘no one’ would raid. It is crafted. The whole proff system is a joke compared to what we had all because of “new players”. New replies are no longer allowed. As for gathering professions, ore can be mined, herbs can be picked, and beasts can be skinned with as little as one point in the relevant profession. Everything else is filler. (which is secondary), New comments cannot be posted and votes cannot be cast, Press J to jump to the feed. Alchemy is the only profession that’ll last you an expansion. Crafting your own gun in WoD was one of the only cool things about that expansion. With mythic+ it’s easy to get high end raiding gear. If looking for more coniviences, engineering. As a new player, do I need to do everything on a main first? Engineering does too but it caps out at an ilvl of 345 - though the next patch with raise it. And if you level it up, Engineering is the only other profession that provides useful benefits through its exclusive gadgets. And cus you no longer like ever have to actually level a profession to progress you just think what the heck. The pets you can make dont sell at all, bc that entire market has taken a nose dive. Kill the King...The King is Dead...Long live the King...I am the King. When I asked in guild about leveing my professions (skinning/leatherworking) I was told that they were almost useless due to the introduction of the draenor professions? Herbalism is one of the most useful gathering professions with mining being a close second and then skinning coming in third place. Alchemy and Engineering are the crafting professions that are worth it. Where is the best place to level from 40-50? Cause you can use gems/enchants in your gear upgrades or sell them at AH(for not a big of a profit. Gathering also gives you a little bit of bonus XP. I think its a neat way to harmonize crafting as we stuff 15 years of WoW back down into level 60 container. Ion explained this after Mists, that they didn’t like the inconvenience of people having to leave the raid and be summoned back before they could equip their new shiny. Should I level any professions as a new player. while watching movies. Once your Cooking is capped you can sell the other fish on AH for a decent amount, too. Random sockets really killed the profitability of JC compared to the cost of skilling it up (though scrapping helped some in that regard but at the expense of making gems cheaper). Ive played WoW since vanilla but never really bothered with professions. As for production professions, when you get the item to increase your skill cap in a profession to 700 (which varies depending on the profession but generally comes early in the expansion), it also teaches you half a dozen or so recipes that can be created at any level using simple materials from WoD, and until you get over 600 skill points each one of them awards a lot of skill points (5-10). Blacksmithing: Smith Au'berk . In short I gave up crafting other than the odd sprinking of Enchanting, but then only to give me a boost at the start of each of the expansions. Who is going to sit there and do all that. Alchemists get double duration on their flasks. Two gathering professions on your first character isn't a bad idea to let you begin building up gold. Hi all, Ive played WoW since vanilla but never really bothered with professions. I guess the only professions worth mentioning are alchemy and herbalism(to feed alchemy). Let’s face it, professions have always been an integral part of World of Warcraft. Is this something you would recommend?

They have radically altered the professions in the last 3 expansions, the biggest changes in this current expansion. I can easily make 100k gold in an evening (it's RNG heavy, do you or don't you find Anchor Weed?) I switched from leatherworking to alxhemy, double duration on flasks saves tons of gold, Yeah that herb alchemy since flask are super expensive. Not because of “new players”. Since both are uncommon items, they sold well. Personally, I wouldn't do anything with Archaeology until flying is unlocked. Great work from blizz... With the exception of mining, herbalism and alchemy, all professions are currently unbalanced. My alchemists, contrary to what some say here, dont sell a thing. Time was that 1 fish would almost guarantee you 1 point all the way to 75. Personally, I have a Druid that is an Herbalist/Miner, I run circles and pickup Ore Nodes and Herb Nodes while I chill in front of the TV. Other than that Herb, Alchemy, I guess. Sadly, it isn't typically going to net you a tidy income, though. I’ll add to the consensus. Just having Alchemy is nice because even at level 1 you get double flask time. Why?

I’m not even sure why Blizzard keep Herb/Alchemy on life-support, when they have tortured and starved all the others to death for the crime of getting between players and instances. Nothing to craft.

If you can relax and enjoy running in familar circles and picking things up, you will make piles of gold for very little effort (but a real investment of time).
