good gold making profession for a priest
You could always go herb and alchemy if you really wanted to level a crafting profession from the start. You'll gather far more herbs than it takes to skill up alchemy and you can sell whatever is left over.
Inscription has a shot of making a very low amount of gold since you can start making marketable glyphs at fairly low skill levels. The issue is that they are the "easy" ones to make since every scribe can make them and most people by now have already learned all they glyphs they need. But if you happen to run into a newly rolled alt, etc. you may be able to find someone to buy them from you for a gold or two - nothing to bank on though.
Enchanting and Tailoring are most common. Cloths are always needed. Enchants as well. But if you want other gold making tips and pricing and farming locations visit this free site. www.wowahprofits.com I use it and I am making bank bc of the information.
Disagree. Enchanting and Jewelcrafting are the most common, followed by Jewelcrafting and Blacksmithing...at least at the level cap. However, tailoring and enchanting will be a major PITA to level as you level your priest unless you have wealthy alts to support your cloth and enchanting mat habits, especially with the current leveling speeds and lack of individuals farming Outlands and Northrend.
i started this toon as a tailor and enchanter as an alt but my "main" was only a 40-something druid-- there were rough patches for silk when i did not have a toon who could farm it efficiently and the ah prices were too much for me to afford
there were rough patches in enchanting where i spent more time out of the world.... or warcraft and on enchanting threads figuring out the best way to do things
and the best way was....
get to 85 as an herber/miner - one of the better decisions i have made in this game
(btw- my tailoring and enchanting were fairly decent as well-- outland levelish)
you will "make" gold as an herber/miner or, as jozie points out, you will not lose money
(there will be times when you have to dump mats for lack of inventory space for pretty low sums but it is still "profit")
Tailoring has lightweave. It's a great perk. However, bags are about the only thing that sell well, and there is usually lots of competition with them. Some transmog sells OK. PvP gear is hit or miss, mostly miss this late in the expac, but it did very well early on. Tailoring goes well when leveling enchanting as you can DE a lot of cheap stuff early on. I make bank on tailoring as a side profession to produce illusion dust.
