Skinning is one of the few gathering professions where it's convenient enough to level the profession as you level yourself. For the other professions, you have to actively think about leveling them. Fishing is easily the best example of that.There are two good ways (imo) of leveling your professions: power-grind at a high level, or level the profs as you level. The first is fast and economical because it means you can run around on your epic mount, ignoring lowbie-mobs and just focusing on the profession. But you feel every second of it and I know how much it sucks (once I saw the weapons in blacksmithing in TBC I took mining and blacksmithing from 0 to 360-375 in a couple weeks - hell).The second, and I always think that I should be doing this in the "next time, I'll do it this way" way. You know that for each level, your skills increase by 5. At level 60, you have 300 skill. And while weapon skills and defenses and whatnot will level as you level since you're hitting stuff, try taking the time to just satisfy your 5 skill points each level. You ding 63, and the first thing you want to think of is "I'm gonna get 5 skill for fishing, make 5 more bandaids, pick 5-10 more plants, and make 5-10 more pots." Thinking about it this way lessens the pain, if you ask me. And fighting your way to your plants will give you xp so it's not all bad.I dunno, just my two cents.
