Enchanting or Mining ?
Return to board index
Okay, that may sound stupid, but I'm wondering wich profession to take as a second one on my mage (first profession is tailoring, of course). I mean, I always leveled mining, I know it's rewarding and you can get a good cash value of it, but I heard you can also get some money from enchanting as well, and well, I would like to level something else than mining too, but I don't wanna end up at 40 without money to buy my friggin mount :(!
So, is it worth it to take enchanting when you're low level or I should stick to mining ? (Some friend could supply me magical items and run me trough instance to get items aswell....)
Thanks for your advice,
You wont get any benefits from mining other then the extra cash flow. Enchanting will get you the nice ring enchants and materials for your own enchants.
In my opinion enchanting is the better choice, but they are both nice.
Want to make money? Go mining.
Want to do more DPS and get yourself free / cheap enchants? Go enchanting.
I was a tailor / skinner and dropped skinning pretty much only for the ring enchants. Ran me around 3600g to power level to 360 and was totally worth it.

3600g to powerlevel enchanting to 360? That sounds absurd to me.
But yes, as mostly people say, mining if you want to make sure you get a steady flow of cash. Enchanting is only making money in the sense that you will save some money by doing your own enchants (and ofcourse selling some when you get spare materials). Also tips from doing rare enchants, but thats harder, as rare enchants are harder to come - and especially to be one of the first who can do it.
Hmmm... So I need money to make money. Well well well... I'm still not too sure tough. I would love to try enchanting (as friend can run me instance to get "mats"), but then again, don't wanna end up poor at 40 with no mount because I enchanted some stuff >.>
When it comes to professions, I am more lazy than most people. I prefer tailoring/enchanting for m y mage essentially because the mats come to me as a factor of killing humanoid mobs. With Mining/Herbalism, you have to go find them.
Skinning isn't so bad because you're killing mobs that way as well.
However, the gathering professions can be very lucrative, especially in the beginning of the game. If you want to make money, start out with the gathering professions and branch off unto something more useful little later.
Trust me, I believe the figure to be low. As a 365 enchanter, it took tons of cash (and mat farming) to reach that level. The cool enchants are usually purchased at the AH anyway and they can run 100-200g or more.
Thankfully, I took Herbalism (375) so I can periodically make some cash.
