How can you not level skinning when you max it out a few hours after you hit Northrend?Skinning really needs an overhaul. At the least, I wish they'd make it more interactive and interesting. Maybe an Operation-type thing where you have to steadily "skin" an area, or a rhythm-type thing where you have to click certain spots in a timed way or something. It's a bit of a waste, because you don't really have to "find" a node so you don't get that discovery fun aspect of it. Fishing is boring but at least the timing aspect gives you something to do. Or give us the ability to find something cool under the skin we remove, something that gives you a buff or whatever. It's dull. At least herbalism and mining have nodes you can track and find. It's just a means to an end for leatherworkers, and with no other benefits, it's like we only have one profession that does anything for us./rant

Personally, I prefer skinning to be quick and easy. Finding mineral nodes and leveling fishing is frustrating enough, they don't need to change skinning to make it harder/more time consuming.

I'd prefer skinning to be left as is. I definitely wouldn't want it to come to resemble anything like mining or even herbalism, which can be exercises in frustration at times.On another note, does anyone else feel that cloth drops far too infrequently? I'm trying to level up tailoring on my main as I go, and it seems that, even with the ability that supposedly rewards more cloth from mobs, I'm seeing a lot less drop in comparison to Netherweave. I had hoped that higher level mobs would be more prone to dropping more cloth, but being on the cusp of 76 now, I'm just not seeing it.

[/tin foil hat on]LOL, I think that increased cloth drop talent is just another gold sink - my hunter and my priest have both been leveling at the same speed in the same place, and I don't think i've seen more than one or two pieces of cloth difference between them[/tin foil hat off]and i completely agree on the quantity of cloth drops - way low right now. Of course, I spent a lot of time between alts shuttling around 2000 pieces of netherweave before my lock leveled up, so I guess too much can be a bad thing too.

An operation window? srlsy? LAWL. Enjoy the fact that you can always get leather. Mining...yeah we run around looking for nodes all right, along with a bunch of other people racing to beat us to them. I can't go out and kill a field of ore nodes. I run around hoping to get lucky. QQ!!!!And yes, I definitely am lvling my jewel crafting as I go. Have you seen the price of cobalt ore? I see a node i'm crossing rivers, parting mobs with my psychic scream and praying I drop aggro on most of them by the time I hit my node. lol, bit it a couple times this way, but well worth it. JCing got some nice recipes this time around...
