As a noob (no prior MMO experience) I started a character and read posts on people needing money and how gathering professions were the way to go. I decided to double down and get two gathering professions; mining and herbalism. I also chose fishing and cooking. First aid I use on ALL my characters.Countless times people questioned this "odd" combination. I ended up leveling faster and getting the mounts faster then any other guild members, while still providing them with bars and herbs whenever they needed.I am now in Outland with 3 alts experiencing the crafting professions. I have NO regrets. My main provides the raw mats and my alts are crafting BS, Jewelry and engineering. Also started cloth and leather using an alt as a skinner.It really depends on what you like, but by taking gathering as your professions you should not have problems with G and can craft at a later date on an alt.I will agree that skinning along with mining or herb (IMO mining is best) is a better combination. You need to grind anyway, might as well skin them and sell or use the mats.
