So it’s been a while since I wrote part one of this arranging professions case study, nearly 6 months in fact. I never ended up acting on any of my plans I had for entering Mists of Pandaria, I went into Mists of Pandaria with no major changes. Recently I mentioned that I had finally completed a Recruit-a-Friend pair of characters, and have thus greatly expanded the amount of characters I have available to use for professions.
Since then I’ve levelled the monk a bit, and so my current character roster looks like this
|Character||Level||Profession 1||Profession 2|
|Druid||90||600 Blacksmithing||576 Engineering|
|Priest||85||600 Alchemy||600 Enchanting|
|Paladin||85||610 Jewelcrafting||600 Inscription|
|Deathknight||80||525 Mining||500 Tailoring|
|Deathknight||76||525 Enchanting||525 Alchemy|
Which leaves me in a bit of a spot still. Yes I have a lot more potential for professions, but I’m still short a miner. My first Deathknight (well first now, it’s actually my second) can smelt Ghost Iron Ore, but it will need to get to 600 mining to smelt Trillium Ore, and that’s a problem as you can’t smelt your way to 600 mining, you need to actually mine which requires level 85.
I want to stick Leatherworking and Tailoring on my Monk, seems fitting and they will benefit from being on a potential raiding character. Another issue, I really don’t like Deathknights, I don’t like Warriors either I’ve decided, but I like them more than Deathknights. So I might just level the Warrior to 85, and then stick mining on it.
The real problem is that my Blacksmithing and Engineering are near useless without the ability to smelt Trillium. I mean, I could just buy Trillium Bars, but that has the potential of screwing me out of a lot of profit. Decisions, decisions. Have I mentioned how much I hate levelling?
So that’s where I am know, and I am looking for advice and ideas on what to do from here.
