I mean, yeah, it must be so tough that at level 70 you have literally hundreds of fast-spawning level "60-64 humanoids to totally own and loot for cloth, wheras miners and herbalists have it easy competing for relatively rare low spawning nodes and herbs. And enchanters, man, they've got it so good, what with the ultra-high drop rates for uncommon or better items."60-64 mobs drop 1 or 2 pieces every 3 mobs, yeah a fantastic drop rate."Also, at level 65, doing the Terokkarantula quest (and the one before it) I managed to farm 6 pieces of netherweb spidersilk. Yup, tough droprate there."Have you ever tried grinding this? it took me 2 hours to get teh 8 pieces I needed last time."12 arcane dust? Couple gold, which you probably looted from all those humanoids."Couple of gold? Arcane dust goes for between 40 and 50g a stack on nearly every server. It was this that really boned me when i was leveling my tailoring up, even as an enchanter I didnt have enough arcane dust to supply the need for imbued bolts fo netherweave, the 100g a skill point for tailoring at 360+ is in my opinion an understatement."Thirdly, you mention that tailors make bags (which always sell well, since all 9 classes need them), then go on to say that you have no way of making money." This is true, however competition is fierce and I rarely get more than a couple of g for selling a bag, maybe if bag creation was limited to the distinct tailoring profession it would be better, mooncloth tailoring would then become a viable path for more people and teh market would no be as flooded as it currently is.Finally, 4 day cooldown. Yep, that's tough, all right. Maybe you should do what I did pre-BC for my mooncloth, and have 4 tailors? getting 4 tailors to 350 tailoring? do you realise how much that would cost? If I farmed the mats myself I would be playing till the next patch to get them to that level."Try leveling something really a pain in the ass, like blacksmithing, or jewelcrafting" True, blacksmithing is one of the hardest to level, cant agree with jewelcrafting though, especially when matched to mining, people had this upto 375 within the first 5 day (And thats just who I know)Most of this comment is an unfounded rant on the tailoring profession, before you start telling people to do the oh so quick and easy things (Ie lvl up four lvl 70s and get their tailoring to 350-375 I suggest you try making a tailoror at 375.
