I don't care for the idea. Seems like they will just pigeon hole classes into professions. Every rogue will be a skinner now, every warrior a miner. Granted some profs are naturally better for some classes but encouraging classes to be one prof or the other homogenizes the game. IMO.

Yes, because everyone of the same class wearing all the same equipment because there is no variety at the top end doesn't....

Agreed. I don't think that necessarily EVERYONE will go for the profession that provides the best buff for their class, but I think a lot of people will, and eventually playing a rogue herbalist (assuming herbalism doesn't do anything great for rogues) will be like playing a female dwarf.

Every class can benefit from increased Mining. I also seem to remember something about critical strike rating applying to both spell and physical hits, so the Skinning ability would be useful for any class that tries to damage stuff. . . like every class when it solos.

What? Most classes already are, because the items they produce are most useful for certain classes (Priests wearing plate armor?).

My Rogue is skinner/miner. Even more OP!

That's not going to happen... if everyone went mining, the market would be flooded with ore, the price would drop and mining would no longer be an economically feasible profession.Tauren get a 5% stam racial, but not every horde warrior rolls Tauren
