The profession are the powerhouse of the Warcraft economy. They create the supply and demand of materials that cycles through the Auction House. As players, we need to understand the characteristics of each of the professions and carefully choose those that best suit our class and character. By mastering the professions, you’ll be able to craft the most desirable gear that sells for a profit or gather sought after material to supply to other crafters. The more professions you master, the more ways you’ll have to make gold in the World of Warcraft.

There are a large number of professions to choose from in Warcraft, but for gold making they can be broken down into Gathering and Crafting.

The gathering professions are Herbalism, Mining and Skinning. These supply material to the crafting professions made up of Alchemy, Blacksmithing, Enchanting, Engineering, Inscription, Jewelcrafting, Leatherworking and Tailoring. The gathering and crafting professions are known as the Primary professions and players normally can learn any two of these. I say “normally” because in Warlords, Blizzard introduced Garrisons – but that’s another story we’ll cover in another page.

There are also the minor or secondary professions in Warcraft of Fishing, First Aid, Cooking and Archeology. Players can learn any number of the secondary professions and I always choose the first three with Archeology as an optional extra. I’ve devoted a page just to the secondary professions.

I’m often asked: which is the best profession to make gold? In truth, all of the professions can make you gold, it’s just that some are a little harder  than others. As players, it’s best to to choose those primary professions that best suit your race and class and that compliment one and other. As an example Alchemy, which requires herb for crafting, would be a good compliment to Herbalism.

Many gold makers buy their crafting material direct from the Auction House – it’s just quicker that way. Providing they can source their material cheaply enough, they’ll make a profit.

It’s all about balance; some players just love to gather, gather, gather. And that’s fine. For other players, it’s all about the profit. Find a balance that best suits your style of game.

Let’s take the Engineering profession as an example. I’ve made a ton of gold over the years with this profession. Engineering is a fun profession and can make you gold by crafting an assortment of googles, guns and gadgets. Other popular items include mounts and mechanical pets.

Mounts and Pets tend to retain their demand across the expansions, such as the Mekgineer’s Chopper or the Tranquil Mechanical Yeti. These two items are cheap to craft, yet sell for a great profit. In my Legion Guide, I’ve included all the recent Engineering items in the current expansion.

When crafting items for sale using any of the professions, it helps to know which items are profitable. It’s here that the Crafting module of TSM can help. Providing you have configured the addon correctly and your Auction House data is up-to-date, TSM can estimate profit.

TSM comes into its own when crafting large numbers of items, but it’s important you understand what it’s doing. To help with this I’ve included a whole section on crafting using this module in my TradeSkillMaster Guide, included in my Journal series of Gold Making Guides.

The professions are a great way to make gold in Warcraft. Choose any two complimentary primary professions that best suit your race and class and any of the secondary professions. All of the gathering professions will make you gold and any of the crafting professions, providing you can source material cheaply. The crafting module of TradeSkillMaster can be used to determine which items in your chosen profession are profitable if buying material from the Auction House. So remember, Friend. Raid for show but Craft for dough! Don’t forget to check you email for the next missing page of my guide.
