Hi all,

Just a quick community poll to see what everyone will be doing come classic for professions. I have opted to leave out skinning/mining/leatherworking unless you are opting to do dual gathering.

Interested to see what the spread will be. Personally I'm looking at Alchemy as it's not something I've really ever pursued.

My main is going to have mining and engineering, just like it was back when I used to play. Having the https://classic.wowhead.com/item=18587/ ... -cables-xl and the https://classic.wowhead.com/item=18232/ ... ir-bot-74a was so nice during dungeons and raids to minimize downtime. Also, I never did get the https://classic.wowhead.com/item=11828/ ... t-bombling, but I wanted it soooo badly lol.

I had considered dual-gathering but there are a lot of benefits to having alchemy for PvE and PvP

Our time will come.

I don't think the OCE servers will - not as much competition and don't think people are quite that hardcore to do something like this.

Tailoring, for the Truthfaith Vestments primarily. Once I've crafted the gear needed, I'll switch to Alchemy as I'm also levelling Herbalism. Engineering perhaps later.

Yeh fair point, I don't honestly think there will be, but there is always that possibility.

I still have no clue man. What would you guys suggest for hunter? I was thinking engineering cause it fits my class somewhat, but I want to make money as well. What do you guys recommend?

Skinning would be good for the speed and accessibility; however, I think the market will be flooded with cheap leather especially early on.

Mining and Engineering is probably a better shout overall, as the latter is pretty much mandatory for PvP and high tier raiding, or so I have been told.

I will do the boring herb/skinning for leveling to get money and may pick up alchemy later at 60 for money/raids/guildies. Also it's just fun watching your orc shaman, master of the elements, picking some flowers in his BIS sissy dress.

Engineering for PvP and all the other cool little gadgets.

For leveling: skinning and herbalism (after I get my wands)
At lvl 60: Tailoring and ? (probably keep herbalism).

I'll go for herb/alchemy on my druid (or if I go warlock I'll go for tailoring/enchanting (?)).
But I don't know if I'm gonna level with these professions or if I start with skinning/mining to gain some money on the way to 60.. thoughts?

Skinning and mining to vendor or AH is okay for gold whilst levelling, sure. Alchemy late game will help bring in some low but steady income from consumables. That said, Alchemy is also nice for levelling because you can make a lot of stuff to use like swiftness potions, health potions, invis potions etc. which are always in demand and useful no matter what level/gear you are. Not to mention elixirs.

Stop making my choice even harder! :lol: I'll figure it out by the release..

Think I'll be going dual gathering with my main. Probably skinning mining. I'll try to horde as many mats as I can then eventually make an alt with leatherworking and smithing.

I've always enjoyed Blacksmithing and I plan on actually keeping up with it this time! :P

If only it made sense to be an engineer & alchemist at the same time. I love the idea of being an alchemist, but it's hard to say no to the practicality of engineering since I PvP a lot.

One thing with engineering is that you can craft https://classic.wowhead.com/item=15997/thorium-shells from a world drop schematic. You can then trade them in to https://classic.wowhead.com/npc=14182/b ... ter-kolark in the Valley of Honor in Orgrimmar or https://classic.wowhead.com/npc=14183/a ... sheldonore in the Commons of Ironforge for the arrow equivalent, https://classic.wowhead.com/item=18042/ ... aded-arrow. Although the shells and arrows aren't the highest DPS projectiles for hunters (highest DPS bullets are https://classic.wowhead.com/item=13377/ ... nnon-balls drop from a live Strat boss and highest DPS arrows are https://classic.wowhead.com/item=12654/doomshot drop from a ZG boss), they'll likely be your easiest to obtain and 2nd highest DPS projectiles. You can save money by making these yourself and trading them in. This was another selling point for my hunter. You can also sell the shells/arrows too, since they're not BOP like the blue items I posted.

edit: miniature cannon balls are from a live boss, not UD.

I am torn between half of 'em.
As a mage I intended to pick Herbalism and Alchemy from lvl 1 and never change.
Then I realized I would probably want the gear and cool items, so I went crazy and made a schedule lol.

Herbalism and Mining until 60.
Drop Mining for Tailoring (for gear).
When BG come out, drop Mining for Engineering.
At some point, probs high lvl dungeons and MoltenCore, drop Herbalism for Alchemy.
Befor Zulgurub, retake Herbalism for the Bloodvine.

As you can see, this is not really feasible xD

Don't wait for the world to accept you to try and be happy.

Engineering it is then, I'm sold. Making my own arrows/bullets sounds awesome. What would you recommend to level it up? Mining? Also, should I stay with mining at lvl 60? Thanks

I will probably go with what my OG toon still has to this day; Tailoring and Enchanting.

I'll just grind out the rep gates patterns and use that to make some decent gold. I'm also a glutton for punishment... because leveling Enchanting is a pain.
