Maxing out Professions

If you want to make gold at a fast rate in WoW then you need to make sure you have every opportunity available to you. Right now I have two 80s that have Enchanting/Jewelcrafting/Tailoring which isn't bad but it's not great. You see the issue is at times the economy of one profession can tank. This is when you lose your mind and start cussing at the screen because you just can't make much money.

This is why it is critical to have has many professions as possible. The more professions you have means the more opportunities you will have to make gold. If you're not making any money in say jewelcrafting then who cares because inscription is bringing home the bacon!

I highly recommend leveling a death knight if you don't have one already if you are wanting to get two more professions. If you have the badges or shards to obtain the leveling boosting heirloom items get them. It will be much quicker leveling a DK since you start out at 55. I am in the process of doing this myself and I am currently sitting at level 72. I am not buying ANY gear for my DK while I level. I am saving all gold obtained from leveling to put towards mats for leveling professions. The gear from quests and the weapon from Amphitheater of Anguish will be sufficient for leveling.

You should easily be sitting between 3.5 to 5k gold on your Death Knight by the time you hit 80. As long as the money didn't burn a hole in your pocket and you had to upgrade his gear every level. This should be plenty of coin to buy mats for leveling two professions.

Remember most professions only require that you're level 66ish (or is it 68?) to train up to 450. I know quite a few people who haven't bothered leveling their DK to 80 and just use them as a crafting bot mostly. The trip to 66 is probably shorter than the trip from 66-80.

I believe it's 66. I figured with expansion coming might as level the dk to 80 plus the gold off leveling isn't bad. The gold can be used for leveling professions so that's a plus. I should have the dk at 80 by next weekend, spending on how much time I'm going to be with the girlfriend ^^

It is 65.

68 to select an Alchemy mastery.

I went ahead and leveled mine to 70. Just to make it easier for the next xp.
