Best professions for pally?
Enchanting is great cause you can enchant your own gear, but you still have to get the resources.
Agreed, Mining is good for Prot, cause you get extra stamina.
Alchemy gives you a boost in spell power (or another stat if you choose), and Mixology gives you an increased affect in potions and elixirs.
So, for Prot, I'd pick Engineering and mining
For new Ret, I'll probably choose Blacksmithing for the extra gem socket and JC for the epic cuts that give you +67 Str.
For Holy, I'd probably still choose JC and Alch.
I'd keep alts with gathering abilities so I can still farm the crap out of Twilight Highlands.
Herbalism gives you haste buff for your holy and ret specs (although providing virtually no benefit to prot).
Alchemy makes your flasks give you 450 in the flask stat chosen. Gives you a GREAT starter tank trinket (next patch new stones giving int and str for holy and ret).

Isn't it just a +STAM ? Not str I don't think. Not really beneficial to Ret.. not over the benefits from BS or JC anyway. http://www.wowhead.com/spell=74496
Currently LW and Tailoring are the BEST Ret Professions despite what any of these other people say. In 4.0.6 though LW will be the same as BS/Alch/ and yah, but Tailoring and Engineering will be on top.
For holy honestly it doesn't matter, altough I'd go with things that can get you more intellect.

There is a big "BUT" there.
If you want endgame content and self sufficient JC by far can make idiotic amounts of gold, as can Alchemy, basically anything but a crap gathering profession.
