Meet Lockbox. Lockbox is my level 61 warrior, who I really enjoy playing. Her leveling has been gimped a bit because I'm leveling it exclusively alongside my boyfriend's priest, so she can't even reach maximum profession level yet. But she has a profession conundrum nonetheless.
You see, I have a real profession mess on my hands. Let me outline it for you.
This is how it is:
- Paladin (85) - 525 Engineering/525 Blacksmithing
- Priest (85) - 525 Alchemy (Transmute)/525 Blacksmithing
- Death Knight (85) - 525 JC/525 Tailoring
- Druid (83) - 525 Herbalism/525 Alchemy (Elixir)
- Mage (75) - 525 Enchanting/525 Tailoring?
- Shaman (82) - 525 Inscription/525 Mining
- Warrior (61) - 330 Mining/ ???
- Hunter (31) - 205 Skinning/169 Leatherworking
The pink skills are all ones that I don't care to have on that particular character. Some, like Blacksmiths, I don't need duplicates of. Others I want, just not on the character they are currently on.
The problem is this is how I'd like it to be, when all is said and done and my characters are all able to reach the maximum level of their professions:
- Paladin - Engineering/Blacksmithing
- Priest - Alchemy (Transmute)/Tailoring
- Death Kinght - Jewelcrafting/Alchemy (Transmute)
- Druid - Herbalism/Alchemy (Elixir)
- Mage - Enchanting/Alchemy (Transmute)
- Shaman - Inscription/Alchemy (Transmute)
- Warrior - Mining/Alchemy (Potion)
- Hunter - Leatherworking/Skinning
So basically I'd drop a bunch of alt professions and relevel them on other characters. I don't even want to know how time and gold consuming this will end up being in the end. I will probably do this massive profession shuffle mid-March when I can dedicate some off-hours during Spring Break to it. My main reasoning behind this is to maintain all the professions I want while maximizing the amount of alchemists I can have.
Tell me, do you feel this is a good idea? I must admit, I'm a bit wary of this investment; everyone's anticipating alchemists to have epic gem transmutes, but if there's one thing I've learned since diving into gold making it's that it's not over till it's over and don't believe it till you see it.
Have any of you ever done this kind of profession overhaul? Did you think it was worth it in the end?
