Drop armorsmithing on your mage, totally useless - especially for a mage!

Also I notice you have a leatherworker but not a skinner. :o

Indeed alot of the high level stuff is bind of pickup meaning you wont be able to make stuff on one toon to give to another.

Leatherworking on Warlock and Armorsmith on mage arnt the best choices for their armor class.

Leatherworking guy is maxed at 300
Herbalism is to support the Alchemist - who supports everyone with enchanting & potions.

Mage mining is to support the paladin engineer & armorsmith to support the warrior.

The Warrior alchem/enchant is maxed out at 225 & need to be lvl 35 to go any higher.. my main priority atm is to get the warlock high enough for burning crusade.- Seem to make some decent gold of the leatherworker.
Believe hes specialises in element leatherworking. Sell 3 or 4 headbands a day for 5g each, which cost me about 5g in total to make/buy the leather.

The Idea is to keep it as a circle, so each character has to get played :-D
The Lock is numero uno

Well ive played it a bit...........

Im a Night Elv.....at level 6. Whats all this leatherworking/herbalism/armorsmith stuff??? Do I need to be doing something like this?

At the moment im just doing quest things.........like filling vials with water from moonwells........which is boring. I knocked f**k out of animals in the woods.....which was getting my level up, but seemed to take ages, so ive stopped that now.

What else am I suppose to be doing?!

Also.........ive got hardly any money to buy new swords etc. Do I just get majority of money from quests? Also, can you sell shields etc, as ive got about 4 crap ones which ive picked up, but only want one really dont i.

Cheers

warlock is up to leve 45 - nearly 46.

Started my own guild - as it works out cheaper using a guild bank for multiple characters than it does buying slots & bags for each one (100g for 96 slots) & then pissing about emailing stuff back & forth.

need to get the warrior up to lvl 35 as the Lock really needs those high buff potions

Professions (e.g. Leatherworking/herbalism etc), can be learnt at level 5. Youll have to travel outside of the starting area to find someone to teach you - also it will cost (1 silver I think?) to learn the first rank of professions. You can take 2 main, and all 3 secondary professions. See here for more info : http://www.wow-europe.com/en/info/professions/

A quick note about them. At higher levels, some things you make may only be useable by the person who makes them, this is called Bind on Pick-up (often referred to as BoP) You cannot give them/sell them to anyone else, it is only useable by you. You will find this with certain drops (of items/gear) later on too.

Be careful what professions you take as it can be quite hard to level them up. A mage with armorsmithing for example can make some decent plate armor and sell it (Bind on Equip/BoE items) but will find the best stuff he can make is BoP, but as a mage cant wear plate armor it is a waste. It would be much better for the mage to take Tailoring (for example) as that mainly makes cloth armor, which the mage can wear.

Certain professions traditionally are taken by certain classes, Mages and Warlocks often take Tailoring for example, as the Bind On Pickup gear they make at higher level is very powerful. Other professions, such as Alchemy or Jewelcrafting are useful to everyone as everyone can use potions and gems (Jewel crafting can also make some decent trinkets at lower levels.

Regarding leveling up. It can be a boring and frustrating task, however some really enjoy it. The first 10 levels or so are meant to be an introduction to the game, teaching you about killing/looting/questing. There are generally two ways to level, the first is by questing. This can be great way to do it as youll often receive armor or weapons as quest rewards. The other is what is usually called grinding. This is going to an area and killing mobs over and over. Whilst very boring, this is the essence of an MMO. Combining the two is usually considered the quickest way, e.g You have a quest to collect 10 pieces of rock from the top of the map. Set off in the general direction of the rock, and kill everything you see on the way there. Once you get the rock, set off to return and kill everything on your way back. This will net you a lot of XP from the killing, and also the XP/reward from the quest.

Every level requires more XP than the previous one, but the quests and mobs also give more XP the higher they are. It will take longer when you get to a higher level, but it will be more interesting as there will be more options - you dont have to stay in one area, go to another for a while if you get bored, etc.

Regarding the selling of items, any items that are grey can be safely sold to a vendor NPC, these items that are of no use are often called vendor items, or vendor trash. Picking up and selling these items is a great way to make money, especially at higher levels.

Another way to make money is to use your professions (see above). Certain items are always in demand - healing potions made by Alchemists for example. Whilst these wont sell at low levels, youll make a killing once you can make the best ones. Each profession can make you money, some better than others. Engineering for example, is very hard to make a profit with, as most items you make will require the engineering skill to use, so your market is limited.

chris, as you are such a low level, I wouldnt bother buying any new items. It will make very little difference to your damage. Just make sure you learn new abilities when they are available (from your class trainer, they will be in your starting area). Regarding shields, if you can use them I assume you are a warrior (the only Nelf class that can use them I think?), try and get a 2handed weapon it will help you kill stuff much quicker than sword and shield.

I disagree about taking the professions for the ones your going to use.
Simply because it will mean Ill only gather stuff for my own self.

As leatherworking is no good for my toon, I turn out quite a lot of lvl 30-50 stuff and it sells quite easily enough, making me a load of money I can use to buy stuff for myself.

The game properly begins at 70, and youll be kicking yourself when you cant make the Frozen Shadoweave set for your lock.

Ofc I know loads of people with weird proffession choices, and they enjoy it, and thats what the game is about. :)

I just know what im like.. Id end up hording everything for clothmaking & end up making nothing to sell..
Leatherworking means I cant use it, so I can only sell it :-D

As White Giant says you may find yourself kicking yourself at 70 but its not the end of the world, its not that hard to drop a profession and re-do it when your already 70 and can farm the mats (or do dailys for gold and buy them).

Chris, dont worry about professions and such just yet. When you get a quest to visit the main city have a look around, its in this city you will find profession trainers and such.

Make sure every even level (2, 4, 6, 8, 10) etc you visit your class trainer for your new skills
