Come cata Ill just be starting college and with work as well I wont really be able to raid much so Im just gonna level alts. I plan to do one of each class with each profession variation and have a pretty good start so far. This is what I have.
Priest (main) - 80 - Tailor & Enchanting
Hunter - 80 - Herbalism & Mining
Druid - 63 - Skinning & Leatherworking
Mage* - 41 - Alchemy (Transmute) & Inscription
Paladin* - 43 - Engineer (Dwarven) & ???
Warlock* - 40 - Alchemy (Elixir) & ???
Warrior* - 41 - Alchemy (Potion) & ???
Shaman* - 40 - Engineer (Gnomish) & ???
Rogue - 51 - Blacksmith & Jewelcrafting
Death Knight - ????
No Dk yet. Thats part of the advice I need. So here are my questions.
Q1: I play horde. All 9 of the characters I have so far are all horde. I have a DK but havent touched it since it left the starting area. Would it be advantageous to delete the DK I have and make it Alliance instead? For like AH access and stuff and just make it a second gatherer? Any other advantages to this?
Q2: I have some open spots for professions as you can see. Any suggestions? I can move them around of course. The ones marked with * Ive hardly touched professions on. One thing i was thinking of doing was making a second JC so I can have one with caster gems and the other with melee gems. This way if it goes like WotLK did I can get more cuts in half the time with 2 of them.
Q3: Any other suggestions from others that have done this? Ive been working on them slowly and its been a plan of mine to level one of each class. Having all the professions is just a good way to make money too.
