So I have to figure out what I'm going to do about the very sorry state of professions on my ED toons. I only have two toons with crafting professions there, and too many with the same gathering professions. These are my toons, and what I hope to do with them, maybe:
Seona, Dwarf Pally: Main, I want Jewelcrafting for sure in the near future, maybe level 40 or so (currently Mining/Skinning)
Ziir, Human DK: Banking toon, will go Mining/Herbalism, for gold/mats
Berryl, Nelf Hunter: alt, currently just Skinning (possible mat farming toon later)
Leodry, Human Warrior: primary alt, currently Mining/Blacksmith (I'm happy with that)
Loem, Human Rogue: alt, currently Skinning (Jeebus, another Skinner? No ideas here, but hardly play him, so no issue, I guess)
Fandren, Human Priest: alt, Tailor/Enchanter (totally cool with this, but I'll probably need to level him at some point. Ugh.)
I think that's it. Goodness, I'm a total altoholic (who has a primary and secondary alt? I mean, really...). It's sad when I can see the full list of toons for just one server and realize I'll never get to playing them all. Still, professions are different.
- Skinning supports Leatherworking; Blacksmithing & Engineering to a lesser degree (and very, very occasionally Tailoring)
- Mining supports Blacksmithing, Jewelcrafting, and Engineering
- Herbalism supports Alchemy and Inscription
- Nothing supports Tailoring and Enchanting which is why they're so often paired up on a single toon.
I need all of the three gathering professions for support and gold, and some of the crafting professions on each server, seriously. Mining is the big one here, as I have a blacksmith already started as well as plans for a jewelcrafter later. Having my banker cover this is good, and my current toons with it will stockpile some of the ore already. Herbalism is going to be needed because I definitely want a Scribe (for cheaper glyphs and vellums) and Alchemist (for transmutes and cheaper potions/flasks) at some point. I might make Seona go Inscription much later on to pair with Jewelcrafting, as it fits her personality, but that's a stretch. Safer to make a caster a scribe, as it fits much better. I could plan on Senkka going scribe, as she'll even be able to use the various offhands, I think, though these have been changed to be BoE and non-inscription required. *sigh* I think warlocks are meant to go tailoring/enchanting but I've got it on my priest already. Whatever, it's not that dire...
