Swap my JC for Leatherworking and Skinning?
Return to board index
I am a level 56 Tauren Druid (Istahotah on Bronzebeard), with 200 Jewelcrafting and 225 mining. I am waaaaaaaaaaaay behind for my level on my professions, and I am very low on cash. A friend told me I had so little gold for my level, and I asked him how people my level made gold. He said Professions.
I have invested loads into my jc, but despite this both my jc and mining remain stubbornly behind. Before level 60, I have calculated that your professions should be roughly your level times five. I am definitely not making money with jewelcrafting, but I am hesitant to ditch it because of what I've put into it already.
However, I am considering switching to skinning and leatherworking, as it is easy to find things to skin. I have no problems with grinding low levels to get my skinning up.
Therefore, I have to put this out in the open: Should I stay with jc or switch to skinning and leatherworking?
*btw sorry my character was Istaqahotah not Istahotah. Also this is my first thread.
jcing makes loads at high levels. stick with it and you'll be fine in the long run.

Murderado is definately right. I'm a lvl 450 JC, and I make tons of cash of it. It defnately is nice now that they actually removed the "BoE JC patterns". They're now BoP, so basically, you don't have to pay lots of cash anymore to get those good patterns (like the +12 stam / +18 healing Pre-WOTL). But it seriously is worth leveling it. Do make sure you've got enough cash spare to invest in mats, because they are pretty expensive.
A tip I give you, if you want to keep your money where it is now, just level straight through to 80 and powerlevel it when you're there. Leveling JC is absolutely not cheap :(.
Okay, I'll keep my Jc, but what about swapping mining for something else? Is mining good for money, or should I take skinning (easier to lv) or herbalism (helps me pick plant for Cenarion Expedition rep, something I'm VERY interested in).
