When I started on Detheroc with my wife, I picked up herbalism and skinning, while she picked up tailoring and enchanting. While her skills have been a bit of a moneysink on the way up, I know that at the end game, she'll be well prepared; in addition, through careful planning and diligence in picking up pretty much every herb I've come across from briarthorn and up, we've never hurt for money. We were able to finance every mount, except for epic fliers, at the level they were available for both of us, while still getting her skills all the way up. On top of all of that, I've been able to finance tradeskills for two other characters of mine. I've since dropped skinning for enchanting, since the profit margins are so low at high levels, but I cannot recommend highly enough the idea of picking two gathering skills on your main until hitting 70.One other note. At 70, if you do plan to drop a gathering skill for a crafting one, keep the gathering skill you're planning to drop until you've got all the materials that you'll need to powerlevel your crafting skill to the 350-375 area. It'll usually take at least a few days to get the materials required, during which time you can still be making money.
