This week’s Blog Azeroth’s Shared Topic is:
Professions are fun for some and a necessary evil for others.
Some of us have farming professions. Some of us have crafting professions. Some of us have a little bit of everything! Professions are leveled because they fit our style of play, help us in raiding, allow us to outfit our alts, and make us money.
What professions do you have on your main? Do his/her professions fit their personality? Why did you choose them? If you chose professions based on your character and not on gaming needs, would that change some of their professions they use?
On my main mage I have the Tailoring and Skinning profession.
An odd combination I know but there is a story behind it.
Flashback to the year 2007, I was just started playing this new Warcraft game my friend recommended to me.
As I was experiencing the new world as an undead, when my friend told be to get a profession for my mage.
So me, being the noob that I
am was I went to the first two profession trainers I found and I ended up being an skinning-alchemist. Soon I was told by my friend that I had made a poor choice since I couldn’t make anything I gathered and I couldn’t gather anything that I could make.
I was convinced to give up Alchemy for Tailoring, because I would be able to use the items I created and Skinning offers a nice bit of gold.
Years later I still kept the same combination, and as I mention in my monday post, I still use my accidental profession choice as a major gold income (plus the extra crit really helps in raids).
If I was to change my Draenei mage’s profession I would probability make him a Tailor and Enchanter because magic goes well with mage. but if I ever did that my enchanting skill would permanently stay in the low levels because I hate going back to old content and getting the goods that I can’t use at max level.
As anyone who ready my previous posts that took me three years to get one of my alts past level 40.
