Benefits of Blacksmithing?

Prot Pally here, about to hit 60 and 300 blacksmithing. I know I have a long way to go, but I've started to think about the end-game. Any proud and learned Smiths out there that care to educate me on the amazing gear I'll be able to make at 85/525 to make all this cost and toil to level BS worthwhile?

I do find it rather satisfying to mouse over my chest piece and see:

How's the money making for BS? How well does this pair up with Enchanting? or would it be better to keep mining?

I'm planning getting BS when I hit 85 and just powerleveling it as I've beens saving my ores.

No, currently the only way to add a socket to a weapon is part 2 of the legendary quest line.

And where exactly do you think all those bars you leveled with came from? Another profession. All crafting professions (except perhaps tailoring) rely on other professions for materials. Nature of the beast and has been since the game launched.
