If you have ever picked and leveled up WoW professions, you probably have realized that you should complement them properly. That, of course, if you want to gain skills quickly, without a hassle, and without wasting buckets of money.
Therefore, here are a few WoW profession combos that work best.
Mining – Engineering. Most of the Engineering parts that you craft require metal bars. If you don’t have Mining to get some of the minerals and metal bars yourself, leveling up Engineering is going to be slow and costly.
Mining – Jewelcrafting
Jewelcrafting requires gem (duh!), and gems can be obtained by prospecting minerals. Although sometimes various types of minerals are really cheap, and it’s worth to buy them from the Auction House to boost your Jewelcrafting, it’s always best to be covered, in case you can’t find any minerals of some kind in AH. Plus, many of the Jewelcrafting designs require metal bars, which are usually more expensive in AH than the minerals themselves.
Mining – Blacksmithing. Same as for the first case, most of the Blacksmithing recipes require lots of metal bars. So, if you want to be a Blacksmith, Mining is the secondary profession to go with.
Herbalism – Inscriptions. If you’re going to be a scribe, you’re going to many types of inks in large quantities. Inks are produced from herbs, so, Herbalism is the profession to have along with Inscriptions.
Herbalism – Alchemy. Most flasks and potions in World of Warcraft are made from herbs. So, needless to say, if you want to be an alchemist, you oughta have Herbalism as well.
Tailoring – Enchanting. Enchanting is also a costly WoW profession to raise. But you’ll reduce costs by a lot, if you will have Tailoring with it. The raw materials for Tailoring can be farmed with any character, including your tailor. Any Tailoring craft requires cloth scraps of various kinds, like Mageweave Cloth or Netherweave Cloth for example. So, once you craft the products you must to gain skill in Tailoring, you can disenchant them to obtain Enchanting materials. And then, of course, use those Enchanting materials to get your Enchanting skill up.
Skinning – Leatherworking. It goes without saying that if you want to be a leatherworker, you’re going to need Skinning along with it. Leather, especially the high tier types, is expensive.
Fishing – Cooking. Although these 2 professions are secondary, raising cooking without fishing may be difficult sometimes. Therefore, leveling both at the same time is a good idea.
