Default Should Gathering Skills Become Secondary Professions?

Should gathering skills become secondary professions? As it stands, I no longer see the point of having gathering skills as primary professions in their own right. Why can't everyone gather herbs, mine, or skin so long as they have the proper tools? It works for other games, such as Guild Wars 2. It's not as if enchanting or tailoring requires a gathering profession in its own right. It's simply grinding for drops or buying on the AH. Turning gathering into secondary professions would also remove the need for having the gathering skills offer "raid benefits" on the same level as the ones provided by actual crafting professions.

That makes sense to me.

What's with all the threads lately, out of curiosity?

Pretty sure they said they were getting rid of stat benefits in professions anyway.

It's one thing to have problems and voice your concerns, but when you endlessly bitch day in and day out about the same tired old shit, it honestly makes me wonder why you are even here. Generally when somebody doesn't like something, they stop caring about it.

And on that note, SoL is a forum I no longer enjoy. So, I'm done here. And I genuinely think the people who have absolutely nothing at all positive to say about the game and, the people whose posts are composed entirely of whining, really consider leaving (or at least sticking to non-WoW sections). Because if you truly get no enjoyment out of WoW, then why are you here?

With that said, goodbye.

I mean, I wouldn't even have said this topic needed its own thread. Your point is pretty self-evident and there's not much more to say on the matter.

If it's really that self-evident, then why hasn't Blizzard done anything about it?

If everyone has gathering professions, it'll cheapen the mats on the AH, and to an extent, crafted goods.

Probably, but the economy would readjust. Blizzard could always compensate by adjusting the costs of crafting.

The solution is simple turn gathering skill into their own thing separate from the other professions.

Also make "disenchating" and "underwear thieving" into gathering skills

Professions in general need a rework.

I tried leveling blacksmithing on an orc warrior in cata and it was stupid, nothing I made was useful and I leveled so fast I'd outpace my materials, easily.

Crafted items are meant to be de'd to provide mats for leveling enchanting. Low level enchants are a complete waste, but I think you'll find selling enchants more valuable than gear. It's also much better to be able to enchant your own gear than be at someone else's mercy.

To be honest I only bother with BS/Leatherworking/Tailoring if I want something for transmog or a mount. Once I get the required skill level in the profession in question and get the thing I want, I stop. It just isn't worth it to level.

Other professions aren't quite as bad, but the three gear ones need a lot of reworking.

But that's dumb shit should be useful at the level you make it at, and at the very least they should update it with more recent models.

Particularly after they trumped up Cata as 'no more clown armor' and yet to get a matching set of armor you literally have to do all the quests in the zones across one level bracket oh but wait you can't because some versions of this armor aren't obtainable by players sorry about that

Blacksmithing was one of the worst Professions to level until the change that allows you to use Ghost Iron/MoP ore from level 1.

But yes, I agree regardless; Professions DO need a rework, in both how they're leveled and how they function at end-game.

I think the professions need scrapping and redone. Haven't been fun from they were made.
